Bugri Naabu tape: Ayisi Boateng calls for probe

nabuA Member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Council of Elders, George Ayisi Boateng, has called for investigations into a recorded tape purported to have the voice of the party’s Northern Regional Chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu.

In the tape, Mr Naabu was alleged to have accused the party’s National Chairman, Paul Afoko and General Secretary, Kwabena Agyapong of working against the presidential ambition of the their flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The investigation, according to Mr. Boateng, “is very important because people are fond of putting out false information. It is not the first time that we have heard of tapes being branded about. There are a lot of things that have gone on unchecked or unpunished”.

Mr. Naabu further maintained the tape was an attempt by his enemies and people who do not want to see an NPP victory in 2016 to divert attention from the real issues facing the country.

Although Mr. Naabu has denied knowledge of the tape, which he described as a “calculated attempt to sow seeds of discord between him and the leadership of the party and to tarnish his hard won reputation” Mr. Boateng said yesterday the party should ensure the matter was brought to a proper closure.

Mr Boateng explained that failure by the party to probe the allegations would embolden people who put out supposed secret tapes “to continue doing these kinds of things”.

“It doesn’t help mother Ghana. I think this thing should be thoroughly investigated,” he said.-myjoyonline
