Tafo Youth Movement Protest Gov't Decision To Change Their Capital City

3:16:00 PM

The youth at Akyem Tafo in the Eastern Region have embarked on demonstration to protest government's decision to relocate their capital from Tafo to Kukurantumi.

A leading member of the Tafo Youth Movement, the group protesting the decision by government, told Peace FM's Eastern Regional Correspondent Michael Akrofi that the group insists for Tafo to be made the capital.

According to the Youth Movement, New Tafo is the business hub within the municipality and contributes significant revenue to the Assembly.

They further noted that the biggest market within the municipal assembly is situated in New Tafo Akim and believed changing the capital is not the best option.

The demonstrators expressed resentments over the government decision to relocate the capital.

The Tafo youth petitioned President Nana Akufo-Addo to intervene against plans to site the capital at Kukurantumi which is situated on the other side of the main Koforidua-Bunso road.

The youth also argued that making Tafo the capital will be a befitting way to honour the memory of late Member of Parliament (MP) Joseph Boakye Danquah.
