Sammi Awuku defends John Boadu, Blay, other executives in latest Hajia Fati ‘brawl’

National Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party, Sammi Awuku has reassured party faithful of the current crop of executive’s unwavering commitment to ensuring the party retains power in 2020, ABC News Ghana can authoritatively report.

The National Organiser has noted that the National Executives welcome any form of support and criticism from members of the party in executing their duties but added that they will not tolerate acts that may derail them from their focus.

In a post on his Facebook wall which comes across as a direct response to allegations leveled against some national executives for shirking their responsibilities as national party officers, Sammi Awuku stressed that “All we ask for is encouragement and support. We will adhere to criticisms and advice but not ridicule and attacks. Our resolve is solid and will be vindicated in the end.”

He explained that contrary to the notion that some of the national executives had become pompous and rude towards the grassroots of the party and developed a lackadaisical approach to work, the national executives are preoccupied with grassroots activities that make them travel most of the time.

He maintained that the executives have always had high level of respect for the party hierarchy and members and are resolved to work even harder than they did in the past to ensure victory in the 2020 polls.

“By the very nature of our schedules we travel round the clock to interact with the base of our party. We haven’t and will not shirk responsibility in delivering on our core mandate,” the post on Facebook stated.

“The National Officers of the NPP will continue to serve our Party Rank and File with Respect, Dignity and Determination. We are also united in ensuring that we deliver Victory 2020 for H.E Nana Addo and the Bigger NPP family,” Sammi Awuku wrote.

Controversial NPP member, Hajia Fati recently accused some members of the national officers of neglecting their duties and turning their backs on the party.

Their actions, she observed, could result in the party losing grip of the power they won in 2016.

“They have taken the positions and sleeping in their houses. If they make Nana Addo a one-term President, I swear, I will curse them all,” she said.

She added, “Freddie Blay says he always have stomach upset when he comes to the party office and John Boadu is so arrogant that he doesn’t want to see anyone, so he rented a new office in Osu.”
