NPP Communicator, Nana Boakye has hit back at Dr. Arthur Kobina Kennedy, one-time presidential aspirant of the New Patriotic Party for accusing Nana Addo of working against some party leaders.

Reacting to Dr. Arthur Kennedy's recent statement predicting defeat for the NPP, come 2016, should the flagbearer continue to advance his scheme to remove some national executives, Nana Boakye told host Kwami Sefa Kayi on "Kokrokoo" on Peace FM that he (Dr. Kennedy) should bow his head in shame.

Dr. Arthur Kennedy, currently a fierce critic of perceived wrongs in the party, stated in the controversial article, warned that the "dumb obsession" of  the opposition Presidential candidate to remove "duly elected and loyal executives, bespeaks intolerance in a man who has the potential to be a great leader."

"It seems that the NPP has outstanding people in all of its leadership positions and these people should work together to secure victory, both in the Presidential and Parliamentary elections. Working together does not require the National Executives to surrender their mandates to the flag bearer...

"In 2008, despite the presence of an NDC majority in Parliament, Nana campaigned hard for the Presidency in the second round with the pledge that he could and would work with an NDC majority. He was right then and he is wrong now. Currently, his apparent reluctance to work with those who have been properly mandated by his party begs the question of whether, if elected, together with an NDC majority, he can work with them.

"Finally, it is breathtaking that 18 months to an election, with the governing party floundering, the main priority of the opposition Presidential candidate is the removal of his duly elected and loyal executives. It bespeaks intolerance in a man who has the potential to be a great leader. This dumb obsessing will, if not abandoned, lead to defeat and Nana must be told so bluntly." Dr. Arthur Kennedy stated emphatically.

In a sharp riposte, Nana Boakye rubbished the statement by Dr. Arthur Kennedy; claiming he is a "dangerous" person who does not seek the interest of the party.

According to him, Dr. Arthur Kennedy seems bemused by his stay in the United States (US) and only writing statements which have no corresponding influence on the economic situation that Ghanaians are facing.

You don’t live in Ghana. You’re not suffering like we are. You’re comfortably sitting somewhere in the US. And then you pick a pen and a paper, then you write something you’re not privy to. Who said Nana Addo is scheming take Chairman Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong out? What kind of logic is this? Do you seek the well-being of the party?

These are the dangerous people in the party. Look at what you’re saying about Nana Addo. Somebody you had just some few years ago in your own book showered praises on his attitude, praises on how he welcomes people” and then he makes a U-turn because he wants to be heard by the masses.

He advised Dr. Kennedy to direct his writing skills by making proposals on how to resolve the Ghana's current economic crunch.

So, can’t you write about the economic situation in Ghana? The economy that is collapsing, IMF bailout; can’t you pick a pen and write about them…You let the youth in the party suffer too much. Hospitals are collapsing because of NHIS. Today, everybody is talking about it. You are a medical doctor, would you have been happy if you were in Ghana today. You cannot write about that?”

He should be ashamed of himself. He should be ashamed of himself,” Nana Boakye asserted.
