Mr Richard Nyamah, Deputy Spokesperson for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Candidate hopeful, Mr Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, says his candidate’s claim of “Aduru Meso”, is justifiable by his various significant contributions to the party.
Mr Nyamah said Alan Kyerematen was a founding member of the NPP who established the Young Executive Forum in 1992, which aided in the financing of the party.
He said Mr Kyerematen also formed the Constituency Business Ventures in 2005 that aided Constituencies in their campaigns and activities.
He added that aside these significant contributions to the party, Mr Kyerematen had a better campaign message, which resonated well with delegates of the NPP and Ghanaians in general, making him a standout and preferred choice of the people.
Mr Nyamah said this in an interview with Starr FM when he reacted to the Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia teasing Alan Kyerematen’s campaign claim of “Aduru Meso” in the Ashanti Region.
The Deputy Spokesperson indicated that the Vice President was contradicting and making mockery of himself, in an attempt to ridicule Alan Kyerematen’s claim of “Aduru Meso.”
He stressed that the Vice President, in an attempt to ridicule Mr Kyerematen’s campaign and his contributions to the NPP party, rather made mockery of himself by touting and justifying his own case of “Aduru Meso.”
“The Vice President is only justifying his own case of the ‘Aduru Meso’ he is ridiculing. Implying that it was his turn “Aduru Neso”, because he stood in the witness box in the 2012 election petition,” he added.
Mr Nyamah said the Vice President was in the witness box in the election petition because he was a principal witness to the petition and was only required to do so, and not because there was no one willing to be in the box.
He noted that the Vice President’s claim that no one wanted to be in the witness box except him was false, adding that everyone else who was in a role as a principal witness then would have willingly mounted the box.
He indicated that the Vice President was the greatest beneficiary of the NPP tradition and had been paid enough by the party after taking care of him for eight years in opposition as running mate and eight years in power as Vice President.
He said Dr Bawumia lacked vision and had no campaign message, since he had failed in his role in managing Ghana’s economy and resorted to casting insinuations at the dignified Alan Kyerematen.
