Dr Kwame Amoako-Tuffuor
A Founder Member of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, Dr. Kwame Amoako-Tuffuor, has described Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby as a ?loose-talking outsider? who cannot impose his personal will on the entire party.
He said the decision to challenge the 2012 presidential results in court was a majority decision taken by the leadership of the party saying, ?How dare you think you are wiser than everybody in the party?.
??Don?t think your only opinion that we shouldn?t go to court should matter more than the leadership decision?, Dr. Amoako-Tuffuor stressed.
Dr. Amoako-Tuffuor?s comments came on the heels of Dr. Wereko-Brobby?s description as ?illogical nonsense?, his purported suspension from the party following his description of the NPP?s 2012 Vice Presidential Candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, as a ?clueless? witness in the ongoing election petition.
In his retort to the NPP, Dr. Wereko-Brobby, who is also known as ?Tarzan?, said his purported suspension was ?unlawful? and ?capricious?.
He sought to portray the party?s decision as hypocritical by quoting Matthew 7:5 of the Bible which says: ?You hypocrite! First, take the log out of your own eye; then you will see clearly, so that you can remove the splinter from your brother?s eye!?
Dr. Wereko-Brobby has come under an avalanche of criticisms from his own party following his intermittent criticisms of the party?s decision to challenge the 2012 presidential election results in court.
Dr. Amoako-Tuffuor told XYZ Breakfast Show host Moro Awudu on Monday June 3, 2013 that Dr. Wereko-Brobby is being attacked by leaders and groups within the party because his manner of dealing with reservations as far as the party is concerned, makes him appear as an ?outsider? who talks ?by-heart? and prefers washing the party?s dirty linen in public.
Dr. Amoako-Tuffuor suggested that Dr. Wereko-Brobby could have sought audience with former President John Agyekum Kufuor over his concerns rather than write letters to the media.
??We don?t go and start talking outside? even the British people will not allow you to talk by-heart outside,? he added.
