General News of Sunday, 18 September 2016
The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has mocked the largest opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) saying the party’s acting General Secretary, John Boadu is politically weak to face-off with him during media engagements.
According to him, the NPP acting chief scribe chickens out of media banter anytime he becomes aware he’ll be battling with him (Asiedu Nketia) either on radio or Television.
The Elephant Family’s substantive National Organizer, John Boadu was in 2015 given additional responsibility as the Acting General Secretary of the NPP, after the party suspended its elected General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong indefinitely on grounds of misconduct.
Since then, John Boadu who also doubles as the Director of Operations for the NPP election 2016 Campaign Team has been thick in affairs managing the party.
However speaking at the launch of the NDC Manifesto for the 2016 election at Sunyani, Saturday, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah aka General Mosquito taunted the NPP, daring John Boadu whom he describes as “pretending General Secretary to be man enough to engage him in the media.
“Tell them that I’m greatly worried that the NPP is unable to nominate a rep to engage me on live programmes in the media. I’m a General Secretary, they also have a General Secretary, I don’t want to be called to debate an issue live on Television alone alone, when I’m called they should also call the NPP General Secretary, I hear he’s called the “pretending General Secretary”.When we both meet on a programme that is when all will see which of us is the champion. You don’t wait for me to comment is the media, and surface to tell lies only after I go off air, that is bad.”
