Expressing their strong feeling of antagonism towards the legislator, the youth rejected bags of rice sent to them by the MPs delegation to aid them celebrate the forthcoming salah festival with a clear message that they need jobs, and not bags of rice.
In a widely circulated video authenticated by eyewitnesses, the youth could be heard chanting fuming words to establish a point that they had been eating rice before the coming of Abu Jinapor into the constituency.
The rankled youth who spoke in Gonja could be clearly translated as saying, “Lawyer, we need Jobs, we need jobs. This is just a tip of the iceberg. We need jobs, not rice. No occasion will ever be held in this town. We are here, but you people are selling the jobs. Go and tell Abu Jinapor that he is fooling us. Put the rice back and go away”.
As the rage prevailed, a chunk of the youth could also be heard shouting or laughing derisively, whilst employing sarcastic words such as “away” “away” as if to ridicule the team and the legislator.
It is unclear what could have provoked the hell out of the youth, but information gathered by this writer suggest that the youth felt disappointed that the Member of Parliament has not been able to secure them jobs as promised during his campaign for office. Meanwhile, same jobs are being sold to other people they consider “aliens”.
Efforts are being made to contact the office of the Member of Parliament for the area to get his response to this story.
