Nyaho Tamakloe is a founding member on paper – NPP man

NPP’s Asamoah Gyamfi is doubting the commitment of a leading member of the NPP, Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe after he publicly demanded for the resignation of the party’s General Secretary.

Dr. Tamakloe has called for Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie’s resignation after he was convicted of intentional criminal contempt, fined GHC 5,000 and asked to sign a bond of good behavior.

The General Secretary also suffered severe tongue-lashing as the judge ordered him to retract contemptuous comments he made about a presiding judge hearing an Election petition in court.

Nyaho Tamakloe says Afriyie, popularly called Sir John has brought shame to the party and must resign honourably.

But speaking on Adom FM, Asamoah Gyamfi, an NPP communicator, criticized Dr. Tamakloe for using the media to make this call on the General Secretary. He believed going on air was inappropriate.

He alluded to a biblical story in which Ham saw his father [Noah’s] nakedness and immediately run out to broadcast it to his two brothers. His brothers, Shem and Japheth walked in to cover their father’s nudity. Noah later cursed Ham and blessed his two brothers.

Asamoah Gyamfi believes the founding member could have adopted the blessed brothers’ strategy because the General Secretary is the ‘face of the party’ and ought not to be called upon publicly to resign.

He said with the latest action by Dr. Tamakloe he doubts if the founding member of the opposition NPP is really committed to the party.

He said Dr. Tamakloe, unlike another NPP stalwart Dr. Osafo Maafo, does not motivate the grass-root or party communicators. He said Osafo Maafo occasionally assembles party communicators to his house to eat and occasionally gives them some allowance.

He said Dr. Tamakloe while not helping, prefers to scatter the efforts of others by intermittently making outrageous comments in the media.

He wondered how a so-called founding member would want to use the media to state his case when there are party structures through which he could channel his concerns. Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe must be a founding member of the party on paper, he said.
