Fear delegates not ghosts – Sir John

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) might have had a good Delegates’ Conference in Tamale, with the election of a new team to man the affairs of the party at the weekend.

The tragedy of the conference, to the large mass of Ghanaians accustomed to quotable quotes from former NPP General Secretary Mr. Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as ‘Sir John’, is that the world of Ghana politics might miss the wise-cracks of Sir John, as he leaves office.

Yesterday, he left a parting word for his many admirers. Commenting on his painful loss at Tamale, Sir John told a radio station that apart from death, there could be no wicked personalities on this Earth than delegates. “Fear delegates, not ghosts,” he advised.

Mr. Owusu-Afriyie galvanized a hefty 1,960 votes at Tamale. Unfortunately, it was not enough to see off his main challenger, Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, who obtained 2,520 to snatch the door to the NPP Secretariat in Accra.

Since moving into the Asylum Down headquarters of the NPP, Sir John has illuminated the national political landscape with wide-cracks.

He was engaged in the infamous ‘kokooase kuraseni’ mantra with former Deputy Minister of the Interior Kobby Acheampong, who has now succeeded Mr. Abuga Pele as National Co-coordinator of the National Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Agency (GYEEDA).

Mr. Owusu-Afriye engaged in a long-running soap opera with National Democratic Congress General Secretary, Johnson Aseidu-Nketia, throughout his duty as Chief Scribe of the NPP.

Last month, when General Mosquito intimated that he intended using the GH250,000 legal suit money he won to build a house and name it ‘Kwasea bi Nti,’ (because of someone’s foolishness), Sir John’s response was that only fools could live in a house with that kind of inscription.

For all his faults as Chief Scribe of the NPP, Sir John would be missed by the world of Ghana politics.
