Nyaho Tamakloe worst than 'Judas Iscariot' - NPP MP

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bosomtwe constituency of the Ashanti Region Simon Osei Mensah, has described a leading member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe as worst than Judas Iscariot.

According to him, Dr Nyaho Tamakloe in the last three years has failed to give a good account of himself as a paid- up member of the largest opposition party and therefore is undeserving to be called as such.

“He should tell me one good thing he has done or said for the party. I am challenging him to tell everybody what he has done for the party in the last couple of years”, he opinionated on the Abusua Nkomo hosted by Kwame Adinkra.

In his view, the party is better off without Dr Nyaho Tamakloe, advising him to respect himself and not carry himself around as a member of the NPP as this smacks of disgraceful conduct.

“I want this voice to be replayed on air…if he respects himself he should not call himself an NPP member. He is worst than Judas, I have lost every respect for that man”, he said.

Commenting on signatories of a petition leading to the remission of the Montie trio, he said all were members of the ruling party adding that the leading member of the opposition NPP, who also signed the petition, did that on his own personal accord and not representative of the stance of the party.

He accused President Mahama of setting a bad precedence in the remission of the Montie trio stating that the president will forever be remembered for taking a very unpopular decision even though it lies within his purview to exercise article 72 of the 1992 constitution.
