Akufo-Addo is ‘yentie obiaa’ President – Former NPP General Secretary

A former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Ohene Ntow has described the current government under the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo as ‘Yentie Obiaa’.

He indicates that Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is a leader who does not listen to the voice of people. He believes the president does not pay attention to issues bordering the party. He adds that the voice of members of the NPP does not matter to the president.

“Recently NPP MPs who are the majority in parliament called on the president to sack Ken Ofori-Atta for poor performance.

“President Akufo-Addo said he is the president and that he (Ofori-Atta) will remain and truly he has remained till now.

“As someone representing the party, even when people in the party express concerns about something, his position is that he wields the power. We know that when party people speak Alan Kyerematen listens, President Kufuor as well listens. But Nana Akufo-Addo when everyone speaks, says yentie obiaa (I won’t listen to anyone),” he stated in an interview on Neat FM.

The NPP recently announced that Nana Ohene Ntow and three other leading members of the NPP by the decision to endorse Alan Kyerematen’s independent bid had automatically forfeited their membership in the party.

But according to Nana Ohene Ntow, it is the autocratic tendencies of President Akufo-Addo including his support for Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer of the party that has led to Alan Kyerematen leaving the NPP and their decision to join his campaign.
