A former Eastern Regional Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Fredua Ofori-Atta, has for the second consecutive time, refused to share one platform with former National Democratic Congress MP, George Loh.
Mr. Ofori-Atta was expected to be part of a panel discussion on TV3 New Day on Saturday, September 15, but refused when he arrived at the premises of the television station to realize his longtime feuding partner, Mr. Loh was also billed to be on the show.
He told the producers of the show, that he would not take part in the discussion for personal reasons, after which he left the premise.
Why the feud?
Mr.Ofori-Atta a year ago, took similar decision and refused to partake in discussion of newspaper headlines on TV3, claiming the former MP had previously insulted him.
He claimed at the time that the former NDC MP for North Dayi insulted him and called him a “thief” when they appeared on different programme on a different platform.
He said several attempts to get the former NDC MP to apologise to him proved futile.
This, Nana Fredua Ofori-Atta said, made him decide never to appear on any platform with George Loh.
It is on the back of this, that he staged his second boycott Saturday
