Winneba Zongo Chief Clears Air
Chief of Winneba Zongo, Alhaji Saliki Sulemana Salaga, has denied categorically
that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu, Alexander Afenyo Markin, wrote a
letter on his behalf directed at the Vice Chancellor of University of Education (UEW), Winneba, Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni.
said the letter which was actually written by him was to express his misgivings
over what was happening at UEW.
a press conference in his palace in Winneba on Friday, Alhaji Salaga said: “It
is not true that Hon. Afenyo Markin has forged my signature,” adding that he
(Zongo Chief) personally wrote that letter to express his displeasure at the
behaviour of the UEW VC towards the MP for Effutu.
chief also expressed disgust at one Salifu Bawa for posting what he called
‘falsehoods’ on social media against the MP. He said that he never gave another
person called Ishak Farakan any consent to hold any press conference on his
behalf, saying “I don’t know him from anywhere.”
Winneba Zongo Chief also cautioned a radio station operator in Winneba to
desist from using his name on his radio programmes in an attempt to ‘tarnish’
the image of the Effutu MP.
to Alhaji Salaga, the Effutu MP was doing his best to bring development to the
area and called on the people to ignore what he called ‘the propaganda war’
being waged against such a hard-working MP.
Zongo community commended the Effutu MP highly for sponsoring 24 Moslems from
the community to Mecca, this year.
