NPP Is Unfair To Tarzan

Hassan AyarigaThe 2012 presidential candidate of the People’s National Convention, Hassan Ayariga, has described as “unfair”, the two-year suspension of stalwart, Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey from the main opposition New Patriotic Party.

Mr. Ayariga explained that the punishment meted to Dr. Wereko-Brobbey amounts to “double standards”.
Dr. Wereko Brobbey is being punished for criticising the party’s 2012 election petition which is currently being heard by the Supreme Court.

He also incurred the wrath of the party when he described its 2012 Vice Presidential Candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, as “a clueless” and confused witness in the case.

According to Mr. Ayariga, the actions of the NPP against Dr. Wereko-Brobbey could only be morally justified if the party had not tolerated PNC Youth Organiser, Abu Ramadan, to disobey his own party’s regulations by according him an NPP campaign platform to denigrate the PNC in the run up to the 2012 elections.

He wondered why the NPP would expel Dr. Wereko-Brobbey for expressing dissent on the one hand while the party, on the other hand, encouraged Abu Ramadan to show absolute disrespect to the PNC and its leadership.
“The party has to listen to its supporters and listen to its members,” Mr. Ayariga counselled, adding that a party like the NPP should encourage “freedom of speech”.
