The attention of the Eastern Regional Grassroot Communicators of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been drawn to a false reportage and misrepresentations by some media outlets, ostensibly peddling falsehood, which we deem as distasteful and wish to set the records straight.
First and foremost, we, the Eastern Regional Grassroot Communicators of the NPP attended the funeral of our colleague, Opare’s father and requested that join the entourage of the MP (Hon. Oboafo Kwadwo Asante) in extending pleasantries to the briefed family since we are all cherished members of the NPP.
After informing the PA of the MP Suhum Constituency of our decision, we were clearly informed that the MP does not recognize any of us as members; hence, we cannot join his entourage in exchanging pleasantries to our dear brother. At that material moment, we were left with no option than to ask for permission to leave the funeral grounds for other equally important engagements.
Our Spokesperson was therefore asked to seek permission for us to leave the funeral grounds. Upon seeking permission, our spokesperson expressed our deepest displeasure and dismay by the position of the Suhum MP and his team to disrespect hardworking grassroot communicators of our dear party in that denigrating manner.
In the process of reiterating our displeasure, disappointment and resentment on the position of the MP, our Spokesperson was forcibly attacked by a mob of supporters of the MP who manhandled him in an uncharitable manner. These despicable individuals also turned their attention to innocent leading members of the Eastern Regional Grassroot Communication’s Team of the NPP in an attempt to rescue our Spokesperson from harm.
In the process, the driver of the MP grabbed a Machete from the vehicle of the MP and slashed the forehead of our colleague Bernard Kwasi Amoani, who was immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention.
We, the Eastern Regional Grassroot Communications team of the NPP wish to state categorically and emphatically without any equivocation that, we are disappointed in the actions of the MP for:Not showing leadership throughout the process of the attack on our colleagues. Not being able to calm tempers down knowing very well that we all worked towards his Victory in 2020 and continue to work for the NPP party.
Not being able to even visit our colleagues and those of us who were severely assaulted in full glare of his presence by his own tea members. Masterminding the attack on us and innocent members of our dear party. We therefore use this opportunity to inform the party hierarchy and the general public of our decision to indefinitely suspend our communication on matters involving the MP in both traditional and print media until formal apology from the MP.
We strongly caution all individuals to be careful in their dealings with him (MP) and his team since they have the tendency to assault without the least of provocation. In the meantime, the general public must take note that the matter has been referred to the BNI, CID and other security institutions who are investigating the act in order to bring the culprits to book.
