The National Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has disclosed that the relationship between him and his predecessor Paul Awentami Afoko is not a cordial one.
He said in an interview with Joy News that he’s not friend with Mr Afoko who was suspended from the party in 2015.
His claims seems to corroborate speculations that the two are not in talking terms since Mr Blay was asked to assume the position of an acting national chairman when Mr Afoko, together with the then General secretary Kwabena Agyepong and 2nd Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe were suspended indefinitely following accusations that they were against the progress of the party.
In his interview, Mr Blay however said Mr Agyapong sometimes check on him and also turn up for party activities unlike Mr. Afoko who has completely stayed away from the party.
He condemned Mr Afoko for a comment he made prior to the 2016 election during a media interview where he said he was not sure the NPP was going to win the election and was not also sure he would vote the party.
Despite his resentment towards the statement Mr Afoko made, Mr Blay said the embattled former National Executives of the party will be welcomed anytime they decide to join the party’s activities.
