The National Communications Team Members of the two main Political Parties, NPP and NDC, Nana Bediako and Nurudeen Hamidan on Monday hurled insults at each other on live radio over arrest of Communications Officer of NDC Sammy Gyamfi.

Mr Gyamfi was arrested by the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Monday, January 27 after a program on UTV.

In December 2019, the CID invited Sammy Gyamfi after a report was made against him by the Jubilee House on allegations of forgery and false publication.

So his arrest on Monday was apparently related to the cyber crime case against him by the Presidency. He was granted a police bail few hours after his arrest .

Reacting to the arrest on ‘Dwene Ho Bio’ hosted by Kwabena Owusu on Accra-based Hot 93.9 FM, the NPP Communicator, Nana Bediato angrily labelled Sammy Gyamfi a ‘small boy’ .

The NDC communicator, Nurudeen Hamidan, who seemed unreleased with the NPP Communicators' comments lashed out and fired tirades at him.

According to Nurudeen who is also a former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Asokore Mampong Municipal Assembly,"the issue is in court so why arrest Sammy Gyamfi…that is the difference between a useless NPP government and a responsible NDC government”.

The NPP communicator who also got infuriated by Nurudeen’s comments replied by indicating that, "NDC government is useless than any other government...You compare the useless administration of John Dramani Mahama to the NPP government…the man is very useless”.
