- The NPP chairman has said Dr. Wereko-Brobbey is filled with hatred for President Akufo-Addo
- He says the former VRA boss inferiority complex issues, hence his enmity towards the president
- His comments were in response to Wereko-Brobbey's accusation that President Akufo-Addo gave Major Mahama preferential treatment
The Ashanti Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has said the harsh criticisms against the president by Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey are due to the latter's failure to be at par with president in any field.
According to the NPP chairman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey refuses to acknowledge the positive traits of President Akufo-Addo due to the deep-seated hatred that exists within him against the president.
Chairman Wontumi, speaking to Peace FM, said the former Volta River Authority CEO did not offer the same efforts to develop Ghana, hence his 'inferiority complex' regarding the president.
"He just can’t believe God has made Nana the president of Ghana; his sole wish was to see him fall as flagbearer to fuel him to write senseless articles like he did in the past," Wontumi added.
Chairman Wontumi's remarks were in response to Dr. Wereko-Brobbey's demand that President Akufo-Addo offer the same 'preferential' treatment given to Major Mahama, to the police officer that was killed by a patrol team over mistaken identity.
According to Wereko-Brobbey, who is currently on suspension from the NPP, President Akufo-Addo succumbed to the pressures of the citizenry, with the grand gesture of the state burial and posthumous promotion of the army officer that was lynched to death.
The former VRA CEO further lambasted the media for covering the Major Mahama incident from all angles, and ignoring that of Lance Corporal Robert Ackah.
"The media precipitated that whole thing and forced the government to respond…so [government] was forced by the media coverage and if the media had devoted even half of the kind of expression they put to the one I think government may have been forced to do the same thing," Dr. Were-Brobbey said.
However, Chairman Wontumi has refuted all these arguments, stating the suspended NPP member was making such claims to interfere with the president's work.
