NPP Confab: Nana B, Karbo exhibited pro-Bawumia biases as MCs – Kyerematen’s camp

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (L) and Alan Kyerematen (R)

A member of the ‘Alan for President 2024’ team has accused the current National Youth Organiser and former National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party of being biased MCs at the just-ended National Delegates Conference held in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.

According to Mr Abraham Boadi, the duo; Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as Nana B, and Mr Anthony Abayefa Karbo, did the bidding of the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, using the microphone.

He said in spite of the schemes put up by the two MCs at the conference to forcibly project the Vice-President, the scheme failed to fly as the delegates refused to applaud him (Dr Bawumia) after he finished delivering his speech.  

He questioned why President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was made to assume his seat on the dais before the arrival of the Vice-President.

This, he said, has never happened in the history of the party’s protocol. 

He said MCs at the event broke protocol just to shore up the popularity of the Vice-President.      

The spokesperson for Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, who is also the Minister of Trade and Industry in the Ashanti Region, made these allegations against the two MCs on Accra-based Happy FM on Monday, 20 December 2021.

Mr Boadi, who was a former Presiding Member (PM) for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), singled out Madam Catherine Afeku, the only female who worked with the two male MCs for praise, for being fair to all the aspirants present at the conference.

He said Ms Afeku exhibited extreme fairness to all the presidential aspirants present at the conference. 

The former Assemblyman for the Nyiaeso Electoral Area in the Ashanti Region asked Mr Boakye and Mr Karbo to bow their heads in shame for using the party’s platform to do the bidding of the Vice-President.

Mr Boadi, also known in the political circles as ‘Oppoman’, further accused Mr Henry Nana Boakye of leading the charge to rent crowds for the Vice-President at the Conference
