Mr Emmanuel Kwesi Bedzrah, Member of Parliament for Ho-West, has noted with concern the recent media publications caused by some pressure groups agitating for his nomination by the President as the next Volta Regional minister.

Mr Bedzrah, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Accra at the weekend, described the action by the group as unnecessary.

He said President John Dramani Mahama was a seasoned politician who had gone through the mill and, therefore, knows what to do at what time.

“The President does not need these excess pressures to appoint people as ministers to help him deliver on his Better Ghana Agenda,” he added.

The MP urged all interested parties from the region to remain calm and give the President a free hand to work.

Mr Bedzrah indicated that the fact that he was successful as an MP for the area over the last four years, where he contributed his quota to the success of the party’s victory in the last December elections does not guarantee him a Ministerial appointment.
