A Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has described Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as someone with a low intelligence quotient (IQ).
“Materially, he is richer than me…he is also older than me but when it comes to politics, I am more experienced and intelligent than Asiedu Nketia”, Lawyer Obiri said in an interview.
According to the outspoken lawyer, Mr. Asiedu Nketia as old as he is should know better and stop making unguided statements in the political space at the least opportunity given him as the General Secretary of NDC when given the platform speaks to national issues.
“I don’t make unguided statements like Asiedu Nketia and his NDC people. I am different from them. I do clean and decent politics and everyone can attest to that”, Nana Obiri Boahen claimed on a local radio station in Kumasi.
The comments come after Mr. Asiedu Nketia reportedly said, Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC and NPP Regional Chairman of Bono has no blood relations with Nana Obiri Boahen as nephew despite public knowledge.
“Sometimes, issues of these are just laughable. I don’t do tribal politics like NDC are doing with Ewes”, Nana Obiri Boahen fumed insisting Abronye is his true nephew contrary to claims.
