NPP woman goes "crazy"

Listen to article

A member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Madam Gifty Sackey, caused a stir at the Atiwa Constituency Delegates Congress of the party at New Jejeti on Sunday, when she threw tantrums, and in the process traded insults with the MP of the area, Dr Brempong Yeboah and other dignitaries.

She also tore the Certificate of Honour, Hard work and Dedication, given her by the Regional Executive of the party, wrapped it with other party paraphernalia, and threw them at the MP in the full glare of the Eastern Regional NPP chairman, Nana Adi-Ankama, Okerchiri Adusah, Mp for Nkawkaw and the District Chief Executive for Kyebi, Mr E.V. Asihene.

Reason? She has lost her position as Women’s Organizer (the post she was wielding) to Mrs Felicia Ampaw. Not satisfied with her earlier disposition, Madam Sackey further instructed one of her brothers to return the party’s anniversary cloth which the MP bought for her and personally shared the food prepared for the delegates among her brothers, sisters and brother and some party supports who came from her village to offer assistance.

A section of the delegates also rejected their certificates because the party executives did not add money. Hear them: When we were running through the bush in the night during the 2000 elections where were you?”

They deplored the attitude of the NPP for always saying that there was no money in the national coffers ever since they came to power, adding “but the leaders eat every day”. According to Madam Gifty Sackey, Dr Brempong Yeboah (MP) worked out a scheme by sponsoring his favourites to kick her out, which they succeeded in doing.

The Regional Chairman, Nana Adi-Ankama, when asked what would happen to Madam Sackey, with regard to party discipline, replied that she has already sacked herself from the party, as “this strange behaviour cannot be tolerated among us”. The Evening News
