...Francis Poku's Osbert Lartey Confirms…
It Certainly Isn't John Boadu; But Who Could It Be, Lord Commey, Ohene Ntow, Mac Manu?
As the dog bite dog fight in the NPP gets hotter with regard to the over 25 people interested in leading the NPP, those on the other side of the divide seem to be having a lot of fun as day in day out, lots of salacious stories continue to hit the newsstands.
Yesterday, it was the turn of the Francis Poku sponsored Vanguard edited by Osbert Lartey, to churn out an aspect of the unfolding “buga buga” drama going on on the NPP's stage as he made a very profound statement to the effect that the NPP National Executive was habouring a man who prefers to have sex with his fellow men, a homosexual, in their midst.
Speaking to Radio Gold's Alhassan Suhini, Osbert Lartey emphatically stated that there is an NPP National Officer who is gay.
“For some time now, some pro NDC papers have been writing that a national executive member of the NPP is gay and I have done my checks and it is true that the person is gay” Osbert Said.
The Vanguard editor was reacting to a story that his paper carried to the effect that Allan Kyeremanteng (christened Allan Cash by the Chronicle), was preparing to let loose his guard dogs on those within the NPP who are digging into his (Allan's) ribs.
According to Osbert, his paper had chanced upon some information from Allan Kyeremanteng's camp which was warning the homosexual NPP National Officer as well as a former NPP cabinet minister from the Eastern Region who are believed to be the brains and moneybags behind the stinging anti-Allan stories doing the rounds on the media circuit.
According to Osbert, Allan and his guard dogs are preparing to start snapping at their internal enemies and that Allan was not going to as it were go down alone in the dogfight.
Some political pundits predicted well in advance that the NPP was not going to be able to insulate itself from the internal wrangling that beset political parties before a flagbearship contest and if what is happening in the NPP with a pro NPP editor like Osbert Lartey not shying away from exposing the anus-loving sexual preference of one of his National Officers, then the NPP is really going to suffer a serious hailstorm of insults and counter insults as the race reaches its boiling point.
Meanwhile The Ghanaian Lens can confidently confirm that Mr. John Boadu, who is a member of the National Executive member of the NPP by virtue of the fact that he is the NPP National Youth Organiser of the party, is not homosexual and therefore could not be the individual that Osbert Lartey was referring to.
Readers may recall that a few years back, The Lens published a denial by the National Organiser of the NPP, Lord Commey, that he is homosexual.
Lord Commey has since taken a wife.
