The National Chairman of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has been declared unwanted by the Asogli Traditional Council.

The Traditional Council, at a news conference addressed by Togbe Koku Ayim V, Paramount Chief of Ziavi, described the conduct of Mr Blay as "gross misbehaviour," and that the Council could not guarantee his safety in the region.
Togbe Afede’s decision comes on the back of a story published by a news portal; Mynewsgh, claiming that Freddie Blay had described him [ Togbe Afede] as an ignorant person who talks like a palm-wine tapper, following his comments on the acquisition of 275 minibuses for 275 constituencies by the NPP’s newly elected Chairman.
The story, titled ‘Stop the ignorance and "palm-wine business talk”' – Blay replies Togbe Afede, did not specifically indicate where Freddie Blay made the supposed comments, except to say that Mr. Blay questioned if Togbe Afede was a palmwine tapper when he made huge money as a Chief and a businessman.
A statement signed by Secretary of the Asogli State Council, Stephen Tetteh, said the Council takes “strong exceptions to the statements, names, and comments in this reply as they are insulting and disrespectful.”
