A founding member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Â Tamakloe, has descended Â heavily on the partyâ€™s newly elected chairman, Freddie Blay, calling Â him as an â€œimposterâ€ and vowed he and others will never recognize him.
He contended on 3FMâ€™s Sunrise morning show Wednesday that the election of Freddie Blay as the Chairman of the party â€œlegitimizes the coup dâ€™Ã©tat staged by his faction against the Paul Afokoâ€™s administrationâ€.
According to him, â€œan imposter has been used by a group of people to become the Chairman of the partyâ€, a situation he claims, is not in consonance with the partyâ€™s convention of electing party chairmen from â€œwithin the partyâ€.
He is worried that the situation will not serve the interest of the party arguing â€œIf Freddie Blay is truly committed as a politician then he should fix the issues the in CPP rather than become the NPP and serve factional interestâ€.
He believes the leadership of Freddie Blay is going to plunge the party into â€œcrisesâ€ and â€œdivisionâ€, something he said he had warned the party about two years ago.
Dr. Tamakloe insists Freddie Blay is not a loyal member of the NPP for which reason he and other party members will not regard him as Chairman.
â€œI will never consider him as a true member of the NPPâ€¦I will never ever consider him as my chairman, those who want to consider him can go ahead and consider him. I know there are a lot of Ghanaians who are members of the New Patriotic Party who will not consider him as their chairmanâ€, he said.
â€œFreddie Blay is not a member of our party, he has not been a member of our party for longâ€, he reiterated.
Regardless of his aversion towards the Chairman of the party, Dr. Tamakloe says he remains a member of the NPP and will protect his party from distraction by cautioning them each time they veer off.
Meanwhile, he has cautioned President Nana Akufo-Addo to be mindful of his administration because Ghanaians are watching.
