The former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Volta River Authority (VRA) Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey, appears not to have only incurred the wrath of the highest decision-making body of his own party, New Patriotic Party (NPP), but also youth groups of the party, in other parts of the region.
The Ashanti Regional Youth Chapter of the party has categorically registered its abhorrence towards the attitude of the former VRA boss, and is calling for stiffer measures against him.
The group said it felt so disappointed that Dr. Wereko-Brobbey, who used to be one of the key Ashanti personalities, could bring shame and humiliation to the entire family of the NPP.
It noted with regret that the former VRA boss, who prides himself as the nephew of one of the founding fathers of the NPP, Mr. Victor Owusu, could allegedly align himself with political opponents, just to run down the party.
The group observed that it was their wish that someone like Dr. Wereko-Brobbey could one day lead the party as its national chairman, but looking at his recent attitude, there was enough evidence to believe that “he is in bed with our political opponents.”
The former VRA CEO has come under venom from his own party, after openly rebuking the running mate of the 2012 presidential election and star witness of the NPP in the ongoing petition at the Supreme Court, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, criticising him of being inexperienced in his presentation at the court.
According to Kwabena Nsenkyire, Ashanti Regional Vice Chairman of the party, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey was someone who had never appreciated anything God has given him, stressing that in spite of all the opportunities granted him during the era of President Agyekum Kufuor, he still went ahead to criticise the administration.
“Even his own uncle, Victor Owusu, had problem with him. He and his uncle were not on good terms before the death of the latter, so we are not surprised at all about what he is doing now,” Mr. Nseknyire observed.
The NPP Regional Vice Chairman further questioned the rationale behind Dr. Wereko-Brobbey’s criticism of the petition filed by the NPP, when he actually took a similar step after he lost his bid for the national chairmanship position.
“During the National Congress, Dr, Wereko-Brobbey claimed he had been cheated when he got less than 10 votes and even went to court, so what is wrong if today, the NPP is also taking similar steps,” Nsenkyire questioned.
