The General Secretary of the main opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has alleged that the Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, also known as Abronye DC does not hail from Ghana.
According to the NDC scribe, Abronye DC’s parents belong to the Lobi tribe in Burkina Fase and migrated to the Bono Region in search of greener pastures.
He narrated during an encounter with the media that the vociferous NPP Regional chair was adopted by a Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Obiri Boahen when they came to settle in Odumase in the Bono Region.
As part of the process to ensuring that it becomes difficult to trace his background in future, Abronye DC was said to have adopted the name of his landlord.
“Chairman of NPP, the one you guys call Abronye, that is not his name, he is using his Landlord’s name. Kwame Baffoe is a Lobi man, both his mother and father are all from Lobi. They came to settle in a village in Odomase. They left him in the village and Lawyer Obiri Boahen adopted him and he’s now claiming he is his nephew…,” he said.
Asiedu Nketia further challenged Lawyer Obiri Boahen and Abronye DC to conduct a DNA test to prove that they are relatives.
“Lawyer Obiri Boahen should go and conduct a DNA test if he believes I am lying…,” he challenged.
To Asiedu Nketia, it would be fair if Abronye DC is denied the right to register for voters ID card because he is a foreigner.
He further challenged the rationale behind the Electoral Commission (EC’s) decision to allow the Bono regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe known as Abronye DC to register in the region.
“If some non-indigenes are to prevented from acquiring the voters ID card and vote in the upcoming General Election in region and Banda then, Abronye and NPP PC, Joe Dankwa should be the first people,” he stressed.
General Mosquito also alleged that Joe Dankwa’s mother is also Gruma with tribal marks on his face.
