Busia would have deserted NPP if he were alive - Prof. Ahwoi

One of the founding members of the UP Tradition, Professor Abrefa Busia of blessed memory would have deserted the NPP if he were alive today - this according to Professor Kwamena Ahwoi is a result of the bad leadership of Nana Akufo Addo which has disintegrated the party leaving most members dissolution and uncertain about their fate in the upcoming general elections.

Professor Kwamena Ahwoi who was addressing a durbar at Subinso in the Wenchi district of the Brong Ahafo region during the NDC campaign tour of the area described Nana Addo's intolerance and vindictive character as very pathetic especially when previous leaders of the Dombo Danquah Busia tradition appeared different.

'Nana Addo has sacked Chairman of his party, Paul Afoko, his General Secretary is nowhere to be found and his Vice Chairman is also out of the party. It demonstrates Nana Addo's incompetence which is a reflection of how bad his leadership will be if he were given the opportunity to govern this country"...he emphasized

Professor Ahwoi who addressed several other mini rallies at Nchiraa, Buoko and Chiraa said President John Mahama has demonstrated his commitment to deliver on his promise and his tolerance nature bonds Ghanaians in spite of our differences.

Chief of Staff Julius Debrah who is leading the campaign in the BRONG AHAFO region said while the NDC is busily explaining its manifesto and working on the ground to win votes, the NPP is sitting in Accra taking selfies with Kalypo.

Mr Debrah asked the people of Brong Ahafo whose traditional leaders have openly acknowledged appreciation of the massive development projects in the region to votes massively for the NDC.

Chief of Buoku, Nana Addae Sekyeredu commended President Mahama for the provision of community day senior high schools, power, water and other projects. He however appealed to government to lease part of a forest reserve in the community for other development projects.
