Dr. Okoe Boye, the former Deputy Minister for Health has said the response the President gave to the Afloa Chief, Torgbe Fati was a direct correlation of the way and manner in which he made his demand for the E-block school in his traditional area to be completed. According to Dr. Okoe Boye, due to the limited supply of resources to meet the endless challenges the country faces, opinion leaders have to sometimes beak government to choose their jurisdiction ahead of other areas that have equally pressing needs to be met. He maintained that the tone Torgbe Fati used was inappropriate hence the response from the President.
Speaking on the Newsfile Show on Joy TV ( on October 23), Dr. Okoe Boye insisted that, it was out of place for the Chief to give the Minister of Education an ultimatum. To him, anyone who gives an ultimatum has the right to take an action if that ultimatum is not met; a right he stated Torgbe Fati does not have. Okoe Boye also rubbished claims that if it had been Okyehene or Ashantehene, Nana Addo could not have spoken to them in that way. He said Nana Akuffo Addo would never speak to Torgbe Afede, who is also from the Volta Region since he would have been measured in his choice of words in making his demand.
Meanwhile, Dr. Okoe Boye said the assertion by the opposition National Democratic Congress that the E-block school project in Afloa was 90% complete before they came to power is not true. According to him, the New Patriotic Party continued the project from the first floor and has now built the second and third floors.
