The Wasa Amenfi East physically challenge has embarked on a peaceful demonstration at Wasa Akropong   in the Western region over  their delayed common fund and demanding an immediate transfer of the Wasa Amenfi East social welfare director, Mr Gideon sageo from at the Municipality.
The association members presented their grievances to the municipal chief executive, hon. Helena Appiah to listen and address their out listed  demands.
The municipal chief executive, hon, Helena Ama Appiah received the petition and pledge her support to respond to their outlining grievances saying, under her watch, the association demands, allegations and some misunderstanding with the social welfare director will be a thing of the past.
She commended the executive members for being law abiding citizens of ensuring peace and stability in Wasa Amenfi east municipal despite their accumulated grievances.
The demonstrators who were in red and black costume, red bandages and  black cards with inscriptions such as: “G.S.P.D is autonomous”, “Mr Sageo go away”, “Our Association is legal”, “Disability is not inability”, “Follow the guidelines for disbursement of our fund”, “How many groups have you formed under the G.P.S.D Mr Sageo”?
The Wasa Amenfi east physically disabled vice chairman, Mr Larbi Harrison on behave of the association, emphasized and presented the following concerns as to the need for an immediate transfer of the Wasa Amenfi east social welfare director, Mr Gideon Sageo from the municipality.
“Mr Gideon Sageo usually uses his own power and authority to receive the societies money and goes to various villages to do payment without proper documents and knowledge of the association members”.
“The association was asked to attend  national Congress in Kumasi in September but the social welfare director denied to their attendance. The blind members of the association were asked to celebrate ” white and cane” day  at Tarkwa Nsuem on October, 2017 but Gideon Sageo refused with His approval “.
“By the orders of Mr Gideon Sageo, the societies workshops at the social welfare has broke down by Amenfiman Senior High School. The social welfare municipal director didn’t help the association to obtain a plot of land  for the workshop”.
“the social welfare director has been in the municipality for over 10 years. Within the his long period, Mr Gideon Sageo has done nothing meaningful things to benefit the society. He must leave the municipality now” Larbi Harrison emphasized.
“Mr Gideon Sageo offers the association members room for rent. The association has informed the Wasa Amenfi Paramount chief and with his convened meeting with the association executives and Mr Gideon Sageo has not turn from his attitudes”.
The misunderstanding concerning the disbursement of the fund as recalled, the association members threatened to demonstrate against the Wasa Amenfi east Social Welfare Director, Mr. Gideon Sageo seeking for his immediate transfer from the municipality on 25th November, 2017 but cancelled out after a round table negotiations with the municipal chief executive.
According to the members, they are not well pleased with some decisions taken by the Social Welfare director but postponed after a round table discussion with the MCE, hon. Helena Ama Appiah and the Municipal police commander, supt. Bright Boafo.
All the attempts exhausted to demonstrate particularly, against the social welfare director Mr. Gideon Sageo has proved futile.
For about 2 years, Wasa Amenfi east physically disabled association members has not receive a share of their common fund released by NPP government to the municipal assembly.
Wasa Amenfi east physically disables are therefore calling on the president of Ghana Nana Akuffo Addo, Gender ministry, people on authorities, the Wasa Amenfi east municipal assembly to immediate transfer the Social welfare director from the municipality.
