Akufo-Addo nearly poked my eye with his finger at funeral for criticising his govt – Dr. Wereko-Brobby

In what appears to be unsual encounter at a funeral ground, stalwart of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby, has accused President Akufo-Addo of attempting to prick his eye for criticising his government.

Revealing the encounter for the first time in an interview monitored by African Editors, on Tuesday, Dr. Wereko-Brobby disclosed that the President Akufo-Addo would have succeeded if he (Dr. Wereko-Brobby) had not taken smart and proper caution a near hurtful experience between his long standing friend before his assumption of power as a Ghanaian leader.

According to him, he met President Akufo-Addo at a funeral after he granted an interview on airwaves to discuss the state of affairs of Ghana in Accra.

Being critical of Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led regime, the criticism did not excite the President since he had criticised the manner in which the Akufo-Addo-led Administration is managing affairs.

Following this, the former Volta River Authority Boss Dr. Wereko-Brobby said the President accused him of spreading untruths about his government.

When asked if he was being serious about the assertion, Dr. Wereko-Brobby said, “you can go and ask him.”

The outspoken politician mentioned Dr. Osei Akoto and the Chief of Staff; Akosua Frema Osei-Opare as witnesses of his encounter with President Akufo-Addo.

The Energy Expert and pioneer of private media in Ghana, also said it is disappointing to see how the NPP government is currently in a mess after all the support and advice he and some big wigs offered to the President shortly after he assumed office.

According to him, he was giving a weekly memo to President Akufo-Addo to help shape his governance, but his efforts were ignored and simply had to stop.
