Nsawam Adoagyiri New Patriotic Party chairman Francis Acquah has taken the Member of Parliament, Frank Annor Dompreh, to the cleaners.
He has described him as arrogant, divisive, disrespectful, and on a mission to destroy the elephant family in the constituency.
The individual denies any personal animosity towards the MP but expresses disapproval of his arrogance and disregard for party leadership.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5 FM, the chairman told host Kwabena Agyapong that the MP insults and talks to people anyhow.
“I don’t have any personal grudges against him. I only disagree with him on how he conducts his activities and himself. We cannot allow him to destroy the party in our constituency. If he is prepared to work in the constituency and make the party viable, we are prepared to work with him. But if he is not prepared to change his attitude and character, I will also not change.
He is causing division in the party in the constituency. He is not a unifier. He talks to people anyway. He keeps insulting me. I am a 59-year-old man, and he keeps insulting me, dragging me in the mud, and calling me names.”
The party’s chairman said they cannot keep on looking on while the MP destroys the fortunes of the NPP.
“It was about time we put a stop to the rudeness and disrespect. He is arrogant, and my crusade is for him to remain humble and stop attacking people. I am the founding father of the party. You can ask everyone about me.
So I will not allow him to destroy the party.”
He took a further swipe at him, saying he had not even paid attention to the chairman who worked and got him elected as the MP for the constituency.”
He went on to say that the MP does not respect the constituency’s traditional leaders and refuses to attend any function hosted by them.
He stated that he does not contact the party’s leadership on activities and does what he wants.
When questioned if he could work with him if elected as the parliamentary candidate and MP, he asked the party to communicate with him so that he would modify his attitude, which might cause significant problems for the NPP.
“This is not about me not being behind him. But I would be voting against a candidate who segregates; I would vote against an arrogant and disrespectful person. I will be voting against someone who lacks respect for leadership and traditional authority. I am going to vote against someone who insults people on social media. He doesn’t even have respect for traditional leaders. Ask him if he has ever attended any event organised by the chief of this area.”
