Sir John is a disgrace to NPP – Ohene Ntow

As the New Patriotic Party (NPP) gears-up for its up-coming national delegates congress in the Northern regional capital, Tamale, a former General Secretary of the Party, Nana Ohene Ntow, has warned that the party risks losing its reputation if it retains Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie a.k.a 'Sir John' as General Secretary.

According to him, Sir John’s continuous 'slanderous and vituperative' attacks on innocent people in and outside the party cast a slur on the NPP.

Nana Ohene Ntow was speaking on Accra based radio station, Oman FM, Tuesday, in reaction to an allegation by Sir John that he [Ntow] and former Chairman, Peter Mac Manu, took away cars and other party properties before leaving office.

Addressing constituency executives in Asante Akyem North as part of his campaign tour of the Ashanti region, Sir John chided his predecessors for “setting a bad precedent”.

But Ohene Ntow described as "insidious and preposterous" the claims made by Sir John, claiming, it is intended to "tarnish our hard earned reputation".

He indicated that such unsubstantiated allegations will only come from someone, who lacks the campaign message to win the upcoming delegates' congress in Tamale.

“Sir John should leave me alone and focus on his campaign because I’m not competing with him for the General Secretary position”, he stressed.

Nana Ohene Ntow warned that if Sir John pushes him to the wall, he will be left with no other option but to open the Pandora box.

He maintained that since Sir John assumed office as General Secretary of the party, he has not shown any leadership quality worth emulating by the youth in the party.

“I don’t think party delegates should retain Sir John as General Secretary for another four years because his actions and inactions are an indictment to the NPP”, he stressed.

Ohene Ntow underscored the need for the NPP to elect a more disciplined, responsible, respectable, and responsive person as General Secretary ahead of the 2016 general elections.
