‘Foolish man with no sense’ – Social media users descend on NPP spokesman

The Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) United Kingdom branch, Nana Ansah Obofour, has fallen on the dagger of some Ghanaians as they have hurled insults at him even after he apologised to Nana Aba Anamoah for some unsavory comments he made about the broadcaster.

Nana Aba Anamoah few days ago expressed contempt at the politicisation of projects by leaders in the country. Her remarks were on the back of some comments President Akufo-Addo made about former president John Mahama during his visit to the Volta region.

The outspoken media personality could not fathom why the president would highlight the inefficiencies and mistakes of Mr. Mahama instead of delivering the country from the economic quagmire and making life better for the ordinary Ghanaian.

“…the President should be telling us exactly how many jobs he has created in the Volta region alone. He should be telling us the numbers he’s added on in the Volta region alone. He shouldn’t be reminding us of what John Mahama did or didn’t do, said or hasn’t said, we are not interested in that. There are problems in the Volta region. He should be telling us of what he has done to address those problems. We don’t want him to be telling us about John Mahama. We already know what John Mahama did and didn’t do, we don’t need him to remind us…” she said on GhOne TV.

Nana Aba received commendations from a section of the public but there was a change in narrative as Nana Ansah Obofour took to Twitter and unleashed insults on her.

His tweet read: “See dis useless and hopeless Mahama photoshop girl too, she will not find a responsible man and marry to be a useful wife, but move around sleeping with her colleague women’s husbands for money, allow your son go see his father so he won’t be a bastard.”

Nana Ansah’s post stoked controversy as many people descended on him. Amidst the backlash, Nana Aba Anamoah rebutted saying: “People like you resort to insults but guess who isn’t moved? ME! I stand by what I said about the NPP & NDC. I had a different response for you but remembered you do this to earn your salary at the end of the month. Next time be bold & tag me. You piece of garbage.”

After several protests from people, Nana Ansah Obofour on Saturday, rendered an unqualified apology to the GhOne news anchor.

In a tweet, the UK-based politician said: “Sorry Nana. In the middle of the political discourse during the week, I made certain disparaging comments on the person of Nana Aba Anamoah, a journalist with GhOne TV. Upon a sober reflection, I apologise unreservedly to her for the comments I made”.
