Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) says he will tame the vociferous General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito.

Nana Obiri Boahen said he has the right antidote to repel the poisonous Mosquito ‘infesting political opponents with malaria’.

“If Asiedu Nketia says he is Mosquito, I will prove to him that I’m also mosquito coil to repel him” he stated on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Wednesday.

Lawyer Obiri Boahen made the comment after Asiedu Nketia accused him of inciting NPP hoodlums to seize vehicles belonging to appointee in the erstwhile Mahama government.

He also indicated that the condemnation of the act by President Akufo-Addo came very late when the harm had already been done.

General Mosquito, therefore, claims the loud silence of the President and the NPP is enough attestation that they were behind the action of the NPP thugs.

In a quick rebuttal, Nana Obiri Boahen said the claims by Asiedu Nketia is much ado about nothing.

He explained that the party boys who led the operation has so far retrieved over 25 state vehicles taken unlawfully from NDC functionaries thus cannot be condemned.

The NPP deputy General Secretary said they will not kowtow to the whims and caprices of the NDC because they have sworn to protect public property.

“I have served the party loyally while in opposition and I’m prepared to go all out to defend NPP in power” he fumed.

Obiri Boahen said they will not allow NDC’s vile propaganda to fester to ensure President Akufo-Addo is focused on fulfilling all his promises to Ghanaians.
