The impasse between Kwabena Nsenkyire, the Ashanti Regional First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Abraham Boadi, the Presiding Member (PM) of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), has been settled amicably.
The two men, who are staunch members of the ruling party, caused a stir recently when they verbally attacked each other on various radio stations in Kumasi.
Their action caused tension and panic among the teeming NPP members due to the fact that the two men wield respect and authority in the party in the region.
The impasse between the two men, which nearly extended to other stalwarts of the party in the region, has been resolved amicably to the delight of NPP members in the region.
The peace deal was brokered by the deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Elizabeth Agyeman, who is widely seen by the NPP members as their mother.
“My boss, Simon Osei-Mensah, is on a working visit to Tamale, and so I became extremely worried when the two party men -Mr Nsenkyire and Mr Boadi, affectionately called ‘Opooman,’ verbally attacked each other on Hello Fm on Thursday morning,”she told DAILY GUIDE.
The deputy regional minister said that she asked the two men not to wash their dirty linen in public to negatively affect the fortunes of the NPP.
According to her, both Opooman and Nsenkyire listened to her advice and quickly smoked the peace pipe to promote the interest of the party.
Ms Agyeman commended the stalwarts of the party for showing political maturity, urging the party members to continue to work in peace to help the NPP to retain power in 2020.
