...Even His Party Executives Wanted To Beat Him
The General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Kojo Afriyie, has harshly labeled the flagbearer of the People’s National Convention(PNC), Mr. Hassan Ayariga as the most “blockheaded” person on earth who has no equal in his league.
According to Lawyer Kojo Afriyie also known as Sir John, it was crystal clear that the NDC “hired” Hassan Ayariga to speak on their behalf during Wednesday's IEA debate. He added that though the NDC deployed the services of the most “blockheaded” person on earth, he (Ayariga) failed to execute the plan which was well rehearsed behind the scenes.
"If the NDC wants to hire somebody to perform a task for them, they should employ a wise person; not a blockheaded person. It was like he had sneaked into the exam room with foreign materials and was copying from it. It looked like he had written it on his thigh and unfortunately, he was caught red-handed", Sir John stated.
"The NDC staged two party debaters in the person of President Mahama and Mr. Hassan Ayariga ,to come against Nana Akufo-Addo during the evening encounter. But whoever God has blessed; He has already blessed", he said.
Speaking in an interview with Okay FM’s Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, Sir John revealed that the executive members of the PNC who were seated in the hall, wanted to “beat” their flagbearer for putting up a poor show during the debate.
"Hassan Ayariga made it clear that he had been bought and bribed by the NDC...he could have died yesterday,he doesn’t represent the PNC; he stands for the NDC...I was sitting behind his wife and I saw how sorry she felt for her husband", he said.
"His Regional Executives wanted to beat him after the debate...You would be shamelessly caught if you hire a person like Ayariga to do something for you. When I looked at Aseidu Nketia and Kwabena Adjei’s demeanor, it was clear they were saying in their minds that "this isn’t how you (Ayariga) should have done it,it is true we have hired you but apply your brains", he added.
Roaring louder at Hassan Ayariga, the NPP scribe described him as a person who didn’t apply his conscience on issues at stake.
"Excuse me to say that not all persons would find a shelter to hide under when it is heavily raining. Some would stand in the rain and allow the rains to beat them until someone tells them to stand under a shelter. Such persons, represent who Ayariga is", he said.
