General Secretary hopeful of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Iddrisu Musah Superior has launched an uppercut at the party’s General Secretary, John Boadu in response to the latter’s description of him as arrogant and one full of pride.
Mr. Boadu who is seeking re-election has said that the former Tamale Mayor, Iddrisu Musah Superior exhibited arrogance and pride during his time as Tamale Mayor and is thus unfit to lead NPP in any capacity again.
According to Mr. Superior, it is possible the General secretary do not understand the meaning of those expressions and it is only arrogance for John Boadu to deliberately disregard and abuse the mandate of his own party people, thinking that he owns the Party and see people contesting his position as “nobody”.
John Boadu says l am arrogant and proud. Wow! May be he doesn’t understand the meanings of the words.
Arrogance is when you fail miserably as GS, added no value to the party and feel people should sing praises for you. Like l said earlier, your performance, record and vision is what the delegates will use to either retain or fire you.
Musah Superior through a facebook response indicated that, he will continue point out the deficiencies in the NPP leadership structure and deliver his message of hope and renaissance to the ‘ABANDONED’ Party folks.
We will explain to the members/supporters of our Party the lack of a coherent plan to support them grow their potentials. We refuse to go into the gutter with a beleaguered GS who refuses to talk about his record and vision and feels he is entitled to the job without a contest.
According to John Boadu, as Mayor of Tamale in the Northern region, Musah Superior was not accessible to the people and exhibited pride and arrogance towards persons who wanted to see him at his office.
He urged journalists to move to Tamale and ask about Musah Superior when he was Tamale Mayor, revealing how the former Mayor made no contributions to the party financially.
Iddrisu Musah Superior a contender for the General Secretary position was the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly in the first term of the administration of President Nana Akufo-Addo. He was recently named Deputy Chief Executive of the Forestry Commission.
Other aspiring general secretary contenders are Justin Kodua Frimpong, Youth Enterprise Agency (YEA) Chief Executive and Fredrick Opare-Ansah, former MP for Suhum among others.
