Who will protect Agogo – Nduom cries

Paa-Kwesi-Nduom

Business mogul and politician, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has decried government’s neglect of the people of Agogo in the Ashanti region.

Dr. Nduom questioned the worth of human lives to the government and wondered if it was more important than cattle.

He made these observations on his Facebook wall in a post titled: “Will Protect the People of Agogo? Who Will Protect Ghanaians in Our Homeland?”

According to the business mogul, the people of Agogo were under siege – “mothers, wives, children, husbands were being murdered on their farms, in their homes, in Ghana, all over cattle” yet authorities seem less concerned about the situation.

He questioned the length of time authorities need to solve the impasse between the indigenes and the Fulani settlers.

“Bush fires and drought destroyed their highly productive cocoa farms and now the fear of armed migrants is preventing them from going to work in their cassava, plantain and maize farms. Will hunger be next? There is talk all over about the connivance of the so-called “big men” – let’s solve this problem before the people rise to protect their lives and property,” he lamented .

Against this backdrop he enlisted his support by saying “We are all enjoined to resist “oppressors” of any kind. I stand with the people of Agogo.”

Will Protect the People of Agogo? Who Will Protect Ghanaians in Our Homeland?

The 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana says:

“The State shall protect and safeguard the independence, unity and territorial integrity of Ghana, and shall seek the well-being of all her citizens.”

The people of Agogo are under siege – mothers, wives, children, husbands are being murdered on their farms, in their homes, in Ghana, all over cattle.

What is more precious – human life or cattle?

Where is the urgency in solving this problem? How many more have to die before our government acts to protect its own citizens? The people of Agogo are farmers. Bush fires and drought destroyed their highly productive cocoa farms and now the fear of armed migrants is preventing them from going to work in their cassava, plantain and maize farms. Will hunger be next? There is talk all over about the connivance of the so-called “big men” – let’s solve this problem before the people rise to protect their lives and property.

We are all enjoined to resist “oppressors” of any kind.

I stand with the people of Agogo.
