Yaw Buaben Asamoa, a campaign member of Alan Kyerematen, has come under fire from former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Central Regional Chairman Bernard Allotey Jacobs for a comment he made.
Buaben, who also doubles as a former lawmaker for the Adentan Constituency, alleged in an interview that Allotey Jacobs was a stockholder in the Ayensu Starch Factory.
Reacting to this, Allotey Jacobs has accused Buaben of undermining the credibility of Alan Kyerematen’s campaign with his childish talks.
Speaking in an interview on Angel TV, monitored by 1Family Radio, the former regional chairman accused Buaben of tarnishing his image without any substantial evidence.
He asserts that some of Yaw Buaben’s statements are absurd, leading him to question if Yaw Buaben’s cognitive abilities are in good shape.
“Tell him he is a stupid boy; he is a boy; my eldest child is closer to him; he is a stupid boy… I am telling you; he is undermining the campaign of Alan Kyerematen because he talks stupidly; he is a politician; he should behave very well,’’ he fumed.
“He needs to behave very well. I run a hotel and am a poultry farmer, but I have no idea where the Ayensu Starch Factory is. He should be able to reason well because he is a lawyer; nevertheless, I have no idea where that is, much less want to consider becoming a board member or shareholder.’’
“He should reason; that is the message I am sending him… Yes, I have to be harsh because he is completely undermining my credibility when I don’t own Ayensu Starch Factory. What is that company for? I don’t even know,’’ he said.
“Is it not Alan Kyerematen who brought Ayensu Starch? So, at the time Alan brought it, did he see Allotey Jacobs’ name there as a shareholder? He should go and ask Alan Kyerematen,’’ he added.
