VIDEO: Angry NPP youth hoot and chase MP out of town meeting

Member of Parliament (MP)  for the Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency of the Ashanti region, Benito Owusu Bio was last Sunday humiliated, hooted at and chased out of a gathering by youth belonging to his New Patriotic Party (NPP), MyNewsGh.com reports.

The Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources had gone to Atwima Koforidua, a town in his constituency to engage members of the community and to also inspect a piece of land that has been earmarked for the construction of a police station when the incident happened.

The youth group, who were spotted in a video cursing and hooting at the MP vowed to unseat him should he attempt to run for the seat again.

They say there is nothing to show for the four terms that Mr Owusu Bio has been in Parliament and would no longer tolerate empty promises from him.

Leader of the group and founder of ‘NPP NTI NA Y3REBR3 YI FUN CLUB’, Yaw Borgor who confirmed to organising the hooting brigade said in an interview on Kumasi-based Angel FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com that, “we will hoot at him anywhere we meet him because he has not done anything for our town since he went to Parliament; we want jobs, we don’t want our children to suffer like we are doing, so Benito should give way for another person to come”.

But the NPP Youth Organiser for the Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency, Prince Appiagyei told Angel FM that, the youth had been rented by “some people to stop the construction of the proposed police station in the town because they don’t want to see the progress of the town”.

He said it is not true that the MP has done nothing in the town; “at least he has built a toilet facility for them. I know also that he has donated some bags of cement towards the construction of a school building in the town”, he said.

Commenting on the development, a senior lecturer at the Department of Political Science at the University of Ghana, Dr Owusu Mensah said the action of the youth meant the “game is over” for Benito Owusu Bio.

The MP has not made any comment on the matter since it happened.

Benito Owusu Bio is serving his fourth term in Parliament since entering the house in 2005 on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party.
