Former Chief Of Staff stabbed me in the back - Yaw Boateng Gyan

The immediate past National Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Yaw Boateng Gyan, is blaming the former Chief of Staff, Mr. Prosper Bani for his defeat during the party's national delegates congress held last year.

According to Y.B Gyan, though he will continue to blame the former Chief of Staff for the pivotal "role he played in ensuring that I was voted out," he is "happy" Mr Bani "has been paid back in his own coin".

He lamented that during the last voter registration exercise, "monies which were meant for our agents at the various registration centres failed to reach them because the funds were not released, but it went viral that I have embezzled the money which was meant for the party agents."


The former NDC NEC Member said he made several efforts to have that negative impression corrected by the then Chief of Staff, "but he refused and had me painted black in the eyes of the delegates who believed at the time that I had embezzled their funds."

"I tried very hard to even have him correct that wrong misconception even on the day of voting, but all to no avail until now that they have realised that it was all not true, but for me, I am still bitter and find it very difficult to forgive him...eventhough he also has been booted out of office," he added.
