A leading member of the Alan Cash for President team, Hopeson Adorye, has complained about being shunned by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to Adorye, due to his support for the candidacy of Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kyeremanten, the government has sidelined him and gave him no political appointments.
Adorye poured out his frustrations during an interview on Neat Fm’s Me Man Nti program.
“Due to my support for Alan Kyeremanten, I am suffering from my own government,” Adorye said.
The former NPP Parliamentary candidate for Kpone Katamanso is an avowed Alan Kyeremanten supporter and a bitter Mahamudu Bawumia critic.
Earlier this year, Hopeson Adorye sparked off a firestorm with comments indicating that Dr Bawumia is only fit to be a Vice President and not a President because that has always been the ‘tradition’ in the NPP.
“The NPP has a tradition. Our tradition is Busia, Danquah and Dombo. Danquah represents Eastern Region and the bottom (south), Danquah represents Ashanti Region and the Bono areas, while Dombo represents Northern Region. The Dombos are always in the mix and fit as running mates to either a Danquah candidate or a Busia candidate. That tradition must continue,” Adorye said whilst speaking during a health walk organised by the Alan campaign.
His inflammatory comment sparked a political firestorm but Adorye refused to accept responsibility over his bigoted comments.
Hopeson Adorye has always been a loose cannon, which presumably explains his absence from the government’s appointee list.
