Leading Member of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Dr Charles Wereko Brobbey, has alleged that he nearly had his eyes pierced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at a funeral.
According to the statesman, the president, who he refers to as a brother, took offence at the criticism of his administration and sought to attack him when they both met at a funeral.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, Mr Wereko Brobbey said he enjoyed a good relationship with the president in the early days of his administration.
He noted that President Akufo-Addo later stopped heeding to suggestions and advice he used to send him in a weekly memo.
Asked what the current status of his relationship with the president is, the leading NPP member spoke of a rather frosty one in which the president at a funeral attempted to assault him while accusing him of peddling falsehoods.
“He met me at a funeral, and he nearly pierced my eye with his finger… It was in anger. Because if you remember, I granted an interview to Joy. It was conducted by Evans Mensah. It was later, after the interview, that he met me. If I had not pulled my head back, he would have pierced my eyes with his finger.
“If you like, you can go and ask him. He said I was peddling falsehood,” he claimed.
