Nyaho-Tamakloe doesn't even pay dues – Obiri Boahen

Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has scoffed at the credentials of Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe as a leading member of the ‘Elephant’ fraternity.

He noted on Neat FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie' that, Nyaho-Tamakloe is not even a member of the opposition party – after explaining that his conduct is rather a dent on the image of the party.

“Nyaho-Tamakloe is not part of the NPP so he should let the party be,” he said – but host of the program, Kwesi Aboagye hastily asked him [Obiri Boahen] if Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe is not a leading member of the NPP.

“Apuu tor! Who is a founding member? Don’t provoke me with that to hang up the call,” he angrily shot back.

His comment comes after the NPP founding member, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe criticized the party heavily in his recent interview with Accra-based television station, GHONE.

He lashed at the factions in the NPP as well as the party's inability to win the upcoming elections – Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe also believe that NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo might not win the November 7 polls and claimed the NPP is 'bleeding'.

But Obiri Boahen dismissed Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe's claims and accused him of not even paying his party dues – “How can such a person be a founding member of the party?” he retorted.

“NPP is united without Tamakloe. No sensible person will say bad things about his party. What is his [Tamakloe] problem about the NPP? He is not part of us,” he repeated.
