The National Democratic Congress (NDC) 2016 Parliamentary candidate for Fanteakwa South constituency, Abigail Elorm Mensah, has described recent comments by the Central Regional Chairman, Bernard Allotey Jacobs in response to allegations of misappropriating party funds as “harsh” and “unfair”.
To her, Mr Allotey Jacobs should have known better on how to handle such a case, than to openly air his reservations in the media.
“Allotey Jacobs should go through the right processes to resolve his grievances, since the party has a way of addressing every issue. He has been in the party for a long time; he should know better and as such, must do the right thing,” she stressed.
Speaking on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ programme, Abigail Mensah, who is also a member of the opposition party's Communications Team, advised that all members of the NDC should bottle up any misgivings and also refrain from publicly addressing party issues anytime they feel wronged.
The NDC Central Regional Chairman, on PeaceFM’s Wednesday’s edition of ‘Kokrokoo’, claimed there are some people within the party and at the NDC national headquarters, who are simply bent on trying to malign his name and undermine his authority in the region.
“I met an NDC executive and he accused me of spending Ghc2billion cedis that I was supposed to share with other members of the party…I am a wounded lion; I’m very bitter because of the unfair treatment from the NDC headquarters; undermining my chairmanship in the Central Region. Nobody gave me a pesewa; not even one T-shirt.
They are mischievously doing this and this is urging me to come again to contest and I will contest. If they want to engage in mafia to undermine some people because we don’t like them then….those pampers wearing babies; we will deal (with) them at the appropriate time.
"...those kids with pampers who come into government and don’t know what life is…When they see you communicating with an NPP person, they say you’re selling yourself to the NPP. The campaign today is that whoever they see you with in the NPP means the NPP is to sponsor you to contest elections; that stupidity of mind”.
