Krobo youth demand apology from Atta Akyea over Eastern university comment

Some youths at Krobo in the Eastern Region have condemned comments by Abuakwa South MP Samuel Atta Akyea, that Akyem instead of Somanya was the best place to build the region’s first public university.

Spokesperson for the group Emmanuel Okrah expressed disappointment with the suggestion that the Krobo area does not deserve a university.

Atta Ayea while speaking on an Accra-based radio station, argued that by the sheer number of residents in the Akyem area, the university should have been in Akyem.

“We are talking about majority rule” he said, stressing that by the principle of representation, it is fair for numbers to influence decisions.

“If you measure the population strength of Somanya as against Akyem Abuakwa and the biggest paramountcy in the Eastern Region, logic alone should inform everybody that the best place to site a university for the Eastern Region should be in Abuakwa South, my constituency, and probably you partner with the Okyehene and have the university.”
