Former Member of Parliament for Asene/Akroso Manso Constituency in the Eastern Region under the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Hon.Yaw Owusu has accused President Akufo-Addo- of allowing the New Patriotic party to become very violent than the opposition National Democratic Congress.
According to Hon.Yaw Owusu, people within the party are being brutalised during their primaries but Nana Addo is sitting aloof and watching all these heinous acts to happen without authoring a word.
The former Asene /Akroso Manso Constituency MP Made this accusation in an interview on “Dwene Ho Bio” hosted by Kwabena Owusu on Accra-based Hot 93.9FM while answering a question in line with whether the Party has been very fair to him after losing his seat:
“In my area we couldn’t have our primaries…People were being beaten ,some were shot etc…I thought the NDC were the ones fond of doing that, but now we have surpassed them…we are more violent than them, sharing money to people during primaries..it’s bad”. He told Kwabena Owusu .
He Continued,”We have to be careful, I am not the only one complaining …all these dubious things are happening in all the regions– even in the Ashanti Region…we are the real democrats.. JB Danquah who happens to be President Akufo-Addo’s uncle,Dr Busia frowned on what is happening now..Even during his(Nana Addo) father’s regime such brutalities within the party never happened.”
There is a growing tension within the members of the party(NPP) over an alleged instruction given by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the party, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as ‘Wontumi’ that all incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs) in the party’s stronghold should be allowed to go unopposed in the upcoming primaries.
Expressing his view on the matter,Hon.Yaw Owusu with much disdained accentuated that Wontumi has no right to make such declaration. He advised President Akufo-Addo- to take frantic measures to curb the menace which is currently making the NPP unpopular.
