The nomination of Nana Kwadwo Seinti as the Brong Ahafo regional minister has incurred the displeasure of a section of the people in the region.

President Kufuor renominated the incumbent regional minister earlier in the week – but some residents say they will petition against it.

Investigations by Joy News have also revealed that the regional secretariat of the New Patriotic party in Brong Ahafo region is divided over the matter.

Nana Kwadwo Seinti took over as the Brong Ahafo regional Minister after Ernest Debrah who has been nominated for the Food and Agriculture ministry.

Callers into local radio station in Brong Ahafo on Wednesday expressed their anger at the nomination with almost all the radio station monitored and a wide section of people interviewed revealed great dislike for Nana Kwadwo Seinti.

Some even said the President did not want to see the development of the region and that is why he has nominated Nana Kwadwo Seinti for the post.

A section of the youth within the NPP are planning to go on demonstration to protest against the nomination of Nana Kwadwo Seinti.

The leader of the group who wanted to remain unanimous said they are waiting for approval of application sent to the police.

He was hopeful that they would take to the streets on Monday.

Last Thursday the NPP Regional Secretariat organized a meeting for all constituency chairmen and executives in the region.

According to a highly placed source, the renomination of the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister was among the agenda.

The source indicated after the meeting that majority of them did not like the President's nomination and are petitioning him to review the nomination of Nana Kwadwo Seinti as Brong Ahafo regional Minister.
