Member of parliament for Effiduase-Asokore Constituency, Dr. Ayew Afriyie has charged faithfuls of the New Patriotic Party to reward aspiring flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for his gallant stewardship when the party was in opposition.
In Dr. Ayew Afriyie’s argument, Dr Bawumia stood to defend the party when it was most needed.
When the New Patriotic Party (NPP) needed a star witness to defend the party at the Supreme Court during the 2012 election petition, there was no whimper or clamour of ‘aduro me so’, Dr. Ayew Afriyie has satirically said as he has urged the party to reward Dr. Bawumia as flagbearer for his sacrifices.
“When we (NPP) needed someone to go to court and represent the party, we didn’t hear any ‘aduro me so’ to wit it is my turn or ‘me baa y3 aky3 to wit I’ve been in line for long”, he said as he took an indirect swipe at the campaign team of Mr. John Kwadwo Alan Kyeremanten who have been campaigning on that mantra.
Speaking on Wontumi TV via phone, the Member of Parliament for EFFIDUASE/ASOKORE Constituency stated that the elders of the NPP were convinced Dr. Bawumia should be made star witness after he had collected data and explained things to them before mounting the witness box to defend the party during the 2016 election petition.
“He matched the NDC lawyers based on the pink sheets by telling them you and I were not there”, he said referencing a major highlight of the petition.
