- Nana Obiri Boahen, an NPP member, has vowed not to repeat comments used by General Mosquito over 10 years ago
- General Mosquito allegedly stated that NPP were about to select a lead thief from 17 thieves to lead the party into the 2008 elections
- Nana Obiri Boateng argued that he was well brought and will therefore not repeat General Mosquito's mistakes
A Former Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has stated that, unlike the General Secretary of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, he will not describe some Ghanaians as thieves.
Speaking on Hello FM, Boahen added that Asiedu Nketiah, better known as General Mosquito, once described some NPP aspirants as thieves.
In the year 2007, the NPP, in a bid to select a flagbearer for the 2008, presented 17 candidates to be voted for by the delegates.
General Mosquito is reported to have described them as 17 thieves seeking to select a lead thief.
He was allegedly pressured to issue an apology, but stuck to his guns, and refused to apologize.
But Nana Obiri Boahen, according to a report by MyNewsGH.com, said he is not going to tow the lane of his friend, General Mosquito.
His statement was in response to how he sees the NDC presidential race involving 11 candidates so far.
“I will never use such a statement that Asiedu Nketia used to describe my people, never, because I was trained well. I’m cultured unlike him,” he said.
He went on to say that there was no need to engage in loose talk and reckless statements, as it will not help in anyway.
