The Chief Executive Officer for the Offinso South Municipality in the Ashanti region, Hon Solomon Kesse has identified laziness as the cause of joblessness of some young people in the area who are whining about unemployment.
According to him, the government of Nana Akufo Addo has provided boundless avenues for jobs in various sectors of the economy and so it is only people who have made their minds not to do any work that are complaining about lack of jobs.
Speaking in an interview with Kwame Tanko on Angel In The Morning Tuesday, Hon. Solomon Kesse said he is not obliged to find anybody a job if they cannot take advantage of government’s initiatives like “Cocoa Mass Spraying, Cocoa Pollination, Youth in Afforestation and NABCO”.
Yesterday, a pro New Patriotic Party (NP) group which calls itself Concerned Youth of Offinso at a press conference accused the MCE of being “incompetent” because he has failed in his duties, among which, to develop the area, unite members of the governing NPP in the area and also to ensure the youth get jobs.
They called on President Akufo Addo to dismiss Hon. Solomon Kesse beacuse his continuous stay in office could be detrimental to the chances of the party in retaining power in the 2020 elections, since the latter has fallen out with almost everybody who matter in the municipality.
But Hon Solomon Kesse says the youth are a lazy bunch who are been pushed by his detractors to soil his reputation and has dared them to produce proof of their identification as members of the NPP in that constituency or even as residents in the municipality.
Until his appointment, Hon. solomon Kesse was the NPP Secretary for the Offinso South Constituency.
