Ofosu Is With His Tribal Statement Trying To ....

Felix Kwakye Ofosu Is With His Tribal Statement Trying To Bite More Than He Can Chew.

A member of the Communications Team of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) The arrogant and disrespectful Felix Kwakye Ofosu has flayed a leading member of the re-constituted National Peace Council Board, Mr.Maulvi Wahab, accusing him of serving the interest of the opposition New Patriotic Party and indulging in ?political gymnastics'.

Felix Ofosu Kwakye posits that ?people like" Maulvi Wahab, Ameer and Missionary In-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana, have lost their neutrality adding that the NDC is used to ?walking alone? and does not need any allies like him to state their case for them.

Meanwhile Maulvi Wahab Adam, as every other Ghanaian only expressed his views over the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho's recent stern warning to the rank and file of the opposition NPP, especially its flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, former National and current Chairmen of the NPP, Peter Mac Manu and Jake Obestebe Lamptey not to attempt to perpetrate violence in the 2012 general elections, or they will be shown ?where power lies?.

Mr. Wahab, a renowned Muslim cleric on Friday signalized Mr. Anyidoho's comments as ?unfortunate?, most especially from someone regarded as the mouthpiece of President Mills in an interview on Accra-based commercial radio station, Joy FM. Where he further stated ?People in high office have to be circumspect with their comments? And if it's coming from Anyidoho, then it's unfortunate.?

Oh! yes, It's also most unfortunate that, "the talk about" Felix Kwakye Ofosu, a so-called NDC communication team member, contributing to discussions on Radio Gold's Alhaji and Alhaji on Saturday, cautioned that it is high time people belonging to the country's moral society know better and avoid engaging in 'political gymnastics' just to score points for the NPP, adding, 'we are not impressed.'

The "By-heart" talkative Ofosu went on saying "the only thing that is unfortunate is Maulvi Wahab failure to live above reproach in terms of being a neutral person?ethnic sentiments were whipped up by the leader of the New Patriotic Party, Maulvi Wahab Adams was nowhere to be heard?we in the NDC are used to walking alone. We don't make pre-tenses about allies, persons who claims to be neutral but are not. Our only allies are the people of Ghana and so we don't need any allies like Maulvi Wahab to make our case? People like him can no longer be neutral and I think that he is serving an NPP interest." They are allies of the NPP and I don't take them serious any longer.

The above tribal statement made by that small boy Kwakye Ofosu, indirectly to single Maulvi Wahab out as a non-Ghanaian is very unfortunate and uncalled for.

A Political novice like Felix Kwakye Ofosu "have nothing lost" in the Ghanaian communication affairs. He is said to be a specialist in oil something..., he can not enlighten the Ghanaian people anything about our oil, but rather hawking radio stations bragging in a wrong directions of some political affairs which he has no idea.

He is not only disrespectful but this time trying to be tribal in his comments.
