Presidential staffer, Charles Cromwell Bissue has described as gross misrepresentation, accounts of the alleged fight that transpired between him and Tarkwa-Nuem MP on Monday .
“In response to the outrageously false allegations printed in Today (Wednesday)’s edition of The Daily Dispatch newspaper entitled ‘NPP Regional Secretary bites NPP MP, blood flows’ and Daily Guide newspaper entitled ‘NPP Gurus Trade Blows’ as well as earlier news articles from other online portals which began on Monday, 21 September 2020, I write to debunk those news articles,” part of a statement issued by Mr. Bissue read.
His comment follows various media reportage detailing the circumstances leading to the physical exchange between the two NPP politicians during a workshop for Western Regional executives and Parliamentary Candidates in Takoradi.
Earlier, pictures of Mr Bissue with a swollen face and eye almost shut hit the internet, causing many to question what was the reason behind the fight with George Mireku Duker.
But in his statement, Mr Bissue said he is resorting to the structures in the NPP to resolve the matter amicably. According to him, he was not the aggressor in the situation, since it is not in his nature.
According to the Western Regional Secretary for the NPP, although he would have preferred to publicise his side of the story, he is also mindful of the fact that the NPP has an election to ‘prosecute’.
“I am guided, as always, not by self-interest but by greater ideals and loyalties, and a firm belief that justice serves those who serve others, and that truth and honesty always prevails.”
