Tarzan to decide on political future

The leader of the United Ghana Movement (UGM), Dr Yves Charles Wereko-Brobbey, says he will inform the electorate about his future political career at the right time.

The leader of the UGM, who was quite evasive and dialectical in an interview, contended that the time was not ripe to make political pronouncements, stressing that it was better to make the right decisions at the right time.

Reacting to an article titled, “Where is Tarzan?”, in the March 29, 2006 edition of the Daily Graphic about his whereabouts, Dr Wereko-Brobbe y, popularly known as “Tarzan”, simply replied, “I am here.”

Dr Wereko-Brobbey, who was not prepared to divulge any information about his future political career and that of the UGM, said he would talk about the issue when he wished to do so after carefully assessing the various political alignments in the country and other related political issues.

According to him, he had to do a lot of consultations among his political allies and also undertake a critical appraisal of his past political activities before he could arrive at definite conclusions about his future political career.

He said a good politician had to draw a comprehensive and unbiased balance sheet of his past activities, taking into consideration the current political terrain, before he could take a definite stance of his or her own future.

The UGM leader said he would take that momentous decision at the appropriate time to allay the anxiety of the public.

It would be recalled that Dr Wereko-Brobbey shot into prominence after being appointed the Energy Policy Advisor of the erstwhile Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) and was credited with coming up with the blueprint for the rural electrification project.

He was a leading member of the Alliance For Change (AFC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He later quit the NPP to form the UGM, which he led in the 2000 election.
