Abgenyo’s credibility is gone - NPP man

The Eastern Regional Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), David Prah says Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fred Agbenyo has lost his credibility for claiming his party boycotted the NPPs Delegates’ Conference over the removal of EC boss and Ghana card issues.

He wondered why a communications officer of a party would make what he describes as shallow comments that contradict what is his party’s official position.

According to him, he will no longer take issues from Mr Agbenyo serious because he has credibility problems.

“Why would a whole communications officer speak as though he is not on top of issues in the party? You say something and then your general secretary says something else. Who should we pay attention to? I think he has lost his credibility and needs to check on that” he said on Adom FMs Morning Show ‘Dwaso Nsem’ Tuesday.

According to Mr Nketia, the party’s decision not to attend the Congress in Koforidua was because the party was holding a one-week memorial service for former Vice President, Amissah Arthur.

The NDC has incurred the wrath of many for not showing up at the NPP’s congress to give its solidarity message.

Many political pundits argue that the NDC missed an opportunity to criticize President Akufo-Addo straight in his face.

In a rebuttal, Fred Agbenyo, on Accra-based Citi FM said the party resolved not to attend the Conference due to the removal of Charlotte Osei and to disallow the use of the Voters ID Card for the Ghana card registration exercise.

“If you look at the recent actions he [Nana Akufo-Addo] has taken; that which has to do with the removal of the EC boss and her deputies, and what is happening with the national identification authority, we in the NDC don’t believe that this is a person we want to solidarize with” he stressed.

But Asiedu Nketia on Adom News Monday said “What Fred Agbenyo said is not true. I’m the General Secretary of the NDC so what I say is final”, he fumed.

Mr Prah, however, urged Fred Agbenyo to always seek approval from the scribe of the party before making comments that are likely to drown his reputation.
