Sack Freddie Blay for defending Ayisi Boateng – Alhaji Sani
The Aspiring Ashanti Regional Chairman for the
opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)
Alhaji Mohammed Sani has expressed disappointment
in the Acting chairman of the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) Freddie Blay for supporting the comments
made by Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa
Ayisi Boateng.

He said he least expected Mr Blay to support Mr
Ayisi Boateng’s divisive comments.

Alhaji Sani suggested to NPP leadership to sack
the Acting Chairman of the party saying he doesn’t
deserve to hold such a reputable position.

He indicated that the chairmanship position is not
for ‘loose talkers’ like Freddie Blay saying it
was needless on the part of Mr Blay to hold brief
for Mr Ayisi Boateng.

Mr Ayisi Boateng interacting with the student
group of NPP-TESCON said NPP supporters are his
topmost priority and that he will place them ahead
of any other Ghanaian.#

Mr Blay openly supported the High Commissioner’s
comment arguing that NPP supporters should be
taking care of before other Ghanaians.

But speaking with Kwame Adinkrah on Abusua Nkommo,
Alhaji Sani said the High Commissioner caused
political earthquake with his comments saying he
would have been sacked within 24-hours if it were
to be parts of Europe.

He said Ghanaians would have turned a blind eye if
Freddie Blay were to be one of the young NPP

‘…My worry is when Ayisi Boateng refused to accept
his mistake. Civil Society Organisations (CSOs)
and some NPP members have condemned his comments
whilst others have backed him…. But one person
whose comments shocked me was Acting National
Chairman of NPP Freddie Blay who supported Ayisi
Boateng. How can a person of your caliber be
talking like this. What kind of a leader is

‘I’m highly disappointed in Freddie Blay, when the
President Akufo-Addo, Minister of Foreign Affairs
Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey were condemning him, but
Freddie Blay was supporting him, how. How can a
leader of a party behave this way,’ he asked.

Ghanaians wouldn’t have criticised Ayisi Boateng
if he had apologised over his comments when his
attention was drawn to it.

The former President John Dramani Mahama has
stated that the High Commissioner would have been
sacked immediately if he were to be in power.
