William Gyima, founder and president of the opposition National Democratic Congress’ Serial Callers Association of Western Region has chastised the leadership of the party over the sudden demise of former vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.
According to the serial caller popularly known as Abeiku Prestea, the party is to blame for the unfortunate death of the NDC stalwart.
He claimed the late vice president was neglected by party executives after their humiliating defeat in 2016.
He added that, the blatant neglect got the former Governor of the Bank of Ghana frustrated leading to what he termed as “excessive thinking” and suddenly died.
He revealed that the party had planned to sideline him as they were considering picking a new person as a running mate should the former President John Mahama contest and win the upcoming NDC presidential primaries.
Mr. Gyima emphasized that the leadership of the party never included the late Amissah-Arthur in the ‘Unity Walks’ and only gave the platforms to former President Mahama to market himself.
“Our leadership didn’t try at all as they deliberately ignored Mr. Amissah-Arthur from the Unity Walks and gave the platforms to Mr. John Mahama, and these things contributed to his death and I also blame Mr. John Mahama for also neglecting the late veep.
“How can somebody who was not sick passed on just like that, this is serious, late Amissah Arthur was not treated fairly, his soul rest in perfect peace,” he said.
