The Presiding Member for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Abraham Boadi, has described the Ashanti Regional First Vice Chairperson of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Nsenkyire as an ‘intellectually handicapped person’ to deal with the NPP communicators in the Ashanti region.
According to him, Hon. Nsenkyire dealings with the communicators (serial callers) has exposed his intellectual incompetency, who does not fit to be a leader because of his refusal to appreciate their contributions of the serial callers during elections and addressing their problems accordingly.
The group, known as ‘NPP serial callers’, in a press conference in Kumasi on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, registered their displeasure against the neglect by the party after helping them to power in 2016, by burning their mobile phones and call credit card to symbolize the end of defending the party on all media platforms.
The group also accused the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah and Ashanti Regional NADMO Director, Kwabena Nsenkyire, for their hardships.
Speaking in an interview with the host of Otec FM’s morning show Nyansapo, Captain Koda, Mr Boadi, who is also the Assembly Member for Nhyiaeso Electoral Area, said Mr Nsenkyire has shown a lot of incompetency as NADMO boss, and it doesn’t surprise him he failed in dealing with the serial callers.
“When the serial callers were using their own call credits to work for the party, Mr Nsenkyire is saying they have not done anything for the party. What have you done for the party, (referring to Nsenkyire)….there are people like him who are not to be involved in intellectual discuss because of his low level of thinking,”
“If we do not bring Kwabena Nsenkyire to order, his actions will discourage people from working for the party in Ashanti region, the ‘stronghold’ of the party and if care is not taken, he will bring the party down in the region. The party has been pampering him too much because they fear him to be someone who talks ‘anyhow’, who is he?” he angrily asked.
Mr Boadi appreciating the works of the serial callers said the group has sacrificed a lot to the party’s achievements, in bringing it back to power and appealed to both Regional and National Executives to find amicable solutions to bring them back.
