Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka Sir John
Power, they say corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This has been the weakness of the current General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, a leading member of the party has observed.
According to Mr. Stephen Asamoah Boateng,ever since Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie rose to become a key figure in the NPP, his ways have changed drastically and he barely listens to advice. He describes the all-knowing posture of the NPP?s General Secretary as one that clearly shows that he has inadequate knowledge about ?politics?.
Mr. Asamoah Boateng?s comment comes after efforts by some key persons in the NPP to stage a ?Thank You Tour? on behalf of Nana Akufo Addo. He reveals the tour is aimed at retaining the organizers thus Mr. Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey and Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie at post; rather than the thank you message they want to send across.
He explains that the two key persons have no intention of fighting for Nana Addo but are hell bent on ensuring they are retained as leaders.
In an interview with OKAY FM, the former Mfantseman West Parliamentary candidate bluntly warned Lawyer Owusu Afriyie also known as Sir John not to use the ?Thank You Tour? as a ?camouflage to seek re-election?.
Knowing very well that his caution would not sit well with Sir John, he pleaded with the NPP?s General Secretary not to use abusive languages to reply him.
