Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has slammed Deputy General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Obiri Boahen for his wild allegations made against the Presidency in a secret recording, calling on him to resign his position.
According to him, Nana Obiri Boahen with his level of political experience and being an astute lawyer makes his outburst unpardonable.
The NPP Deputy Scribe in an audio in a conversation with a known NDC activist based in USA which has gone viral on social media is heard claiming that the Presidency gave the party Gh¢50 billion to conduct the party’s 2017 National Annual Delegates Conference in Cape Coast, where various proposals were made for amendments to the party’s constitution.
Nana Obiri Boahen was further heard lamenting about how he was given a paltry GH¢5,000 as a member of the Resolution Committee out of the GH¢50 billion.
“When we were going to Cape Coast the other time, I was given GH¢3,000 as a member of the Resolution Committee and an additional GH¢2,000 for fuel. Meanwhile, the Flagstaff House gave the party an amount of GH¢50 billion,” Boahen alleged.
He also spoke about how unfairly he’s being treated by the party as he has no official vehicle, never received any salary and has also not been awarded any contract from any of the Ministries.
But the NPP, in a statement, said the Gh¢50 billion claim is a “palpable falsehood” and has referred the matter to the Steering Committee.
Commenting on the matter on Peace FM Wednesday, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako stated considering how damning Nana Obiri Boahen’s utterance, he must do the honourable thing by resigning his position as his relationship with the other staff at the party headquarters will be affected.
“Obiri Boahen’s comments are potential dangerous for the party and the government, if I were him I would have resigned. I’ve heard him say that he lied and that he deliberately said all those things to get information from the other guy, but I don’t want to believe he was manufacturing lies. The so called info that you wanted from the guy, that is not captured on tape so how are we supposed to believe you. He expects we who are his friends to support him? This is unpardonable.”
