'I condemn Nana B for slapping Sammy Gyamfi' - Failed NPP Youth Organizer

A communication team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Dennis Kwakwa has fired a shot at the party's National Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye [Nana B] after the latter assaulted the National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi.

"I condemned what Nana Boakye has done. Physical attack is something we should not entertain at all in our body politick", Mr. Dennis Kwakwa spoke on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM's Kukratumi political talkshow monitored by this reporter, Kwabena Danso-Dapaah.

"I respect Nana Boakye for so many things but what he did was below the belt though, I know Sammy Gyamfi might have provoked him with his harsh utterance", the one time failed NPP Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer told host Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin.

The drama and fights in Ghana this week has been capped by yet another fight in the studios of Multimedia station Asempa FM when National Youth Organizer of the ruling NPP, Henry Nana Boakye sent a slap into the face of NDC National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi.

Also joining the fight was Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwaa who also hit the vociferous Sammy Gyamfi.

It is unclear what exactly led to the fight but Sammy Gyamfi has been in the bad books of the ruling government over his scathing attacks on President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Bawumia.

This fight comes after NDC MP for Asawase Muntaka Mubarak and NPP MP for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong fought each other on the floor of Parliament hurling insults.

It also follows the beating of NDC MP for Prampram Sam George and Deputy National Youth Organizer of the NDC Edem Agbana during the by-election.
