We Will Elect 'Boys' To Face NPP's 'Men' - Joseph Yammin
A Former Deputy Ashanti and Sports Minister under the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama Government and Ashanti Regional Chairman Aspirant for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Joseph Yammin has advised its Constituency, Regional and National delegates of the NDC to elect Boys to face NPPs Men boot for boot for the 2020 general elections.
Mr Yammin said this in an interview with Justice Dzivon Mensah (aka Ghanaba) on Shaft FM Morning Show on Monday in a response to the election of NPPs 'Men'. Mr. Yammin said the 'Men' in the NPP are old, very weak and lack stamina and would need energetic and strong boys from NDC to match them. The NPP says they have elected men and I am urging the NDC to elect boys who are tactical to meet the men.
Mr Yammin also said he is not surprised about the outcomes of the NPPs elections because even when Former President Kuffour was in power, Nana Addo had taken over of the helms of affairs of the NPP especially on their elections so he did not see why anybody could beat Nana Addo's favorite Freddie Blay. "Even when Akuffo Addo was in opposition in the former President Kuffour's administration, he managed to support Mr. Peter Mac Manu to beat Mr. Stephen Ntim in 2005 and Mac Manu also supported Nana Addo over former President Kuffour's favorite candidate Allan Kojo Kyeremateng".
