Obiri Boahen is a stomach politician - NPP MP

Nana Obiri Boahen said the party would deal with moles flirting with government to ensure a resounding victory for the NPP in 2016.
In a quick rebuttal, Collins Owusu Amankwah said the conduct of the Deputy General Secretary smacks of hypocrisy and double standards.
He indicated that Obiri Boahen only champion issues to please flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo and not the entire party.
“Obiri Boahen is a stomach politician; he is working with the NDC to keep us in opposition,” he stressed.
