National Organizer for the National Democratic Congress, Yaw Boateng Gyan, has appealed to the event organizers of the Key soap concert party to reserve a special role for the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, since he has the natural talent to play alongside characters that can create humor.
He was of a strong conviction that Sir John had carved a niche for himself which portrays him as a joker who can flawlessly compose instant jokes.
Yaw Boateng Gyan was reacting to claims by the general secretary for the New Patriotic Party that Tsatsu Tsikata should be denied the accolade as a lawyer of repute and be regarded as an empty barrel making the most noise.
But in Yaw Boateng Gyan’s view, such a statement smacks of absurdities and shouldn’t have come from a student who has been under the supervision of Tsikata before.
Speaking on Okay FM, the National Organizer for the NDC revealed that Lawyer Kwakwo Owusu Afriyie underwent law training under Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata and that earned him a place in the legal field.
“I am a Christian and I wouldn’t hesitate to swear if Sir John wants to swear on any other thing. He told me when he was in law school; the only lecturer who taught him with understanding was Mr. Tsikata. So I find it hard to accept that he has turned against him because of politics. He shouldn’t have said that about Mr. Tsikata,” he observed.
