The NDC Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo Hon. Teye Nyaunu, is accusing the media of what he calls ‘leakage of information’, saying the media has no business publishing or bringing to the fore what occurred when the former first Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings and her team met with the party’s delegates.
“I don’t know why the media got into all of this. The information was a message targeted at our delegates; so I am surprised it is in the media. We met only delegates and not the media. They should attribute whatever they say to themselves because they brought it to the public domain and not me Teye Nyaunu...,” he said.
Nana Konadu and her team met with delegates of the NDC from Ablekuma North, South and Central and Okaikoi North and South at Extima Hotel at Mataheko in Accra, last Monday between the hours of 4 to 7 pm. On a secretly recorded tape that has found its way to the media, he said, the president's poor eyesight is affecting his work.
“When you write a letter to report a minister to His Excellency the President, he cannot read your letter,” noting that circumstances surrounding the presidency indicate that “the man (president) is not in charge”.
Hon Teye Nyaunu disclosed that persons in whose care the president entrusted such confidential letters would photocopy the letters and later go to the persons of whom the complaints have been made to report the complainants.
“He (President Mills) can’t read any letter from anybody; that is the situation, he can’t read anything... Why is he not reading speeches? He speaks extempore…We are telling you how serious the thing is. Let me tell you, a lot of the people surrounding him have taken control. Every Minister is a President…, nobody is controlling any minister. They are all on their own.”
He also accused Messrs Ato Ahowi and P.V. Obeng of usurping the powers of the president: “The only thing you will hear is that Ato Ahwoi and PV would say that they are sacking somebody… This is the extent to which we are going but we can’t say this in public”.
On the tape, Mr Teye Nyaunu is heard indicating that worse things were happening at the presidency but the party had decided to sweep them under the carpet in order to protect the fortunes of the party in the 2012 elections.
But speaking in an interview with CitiFM, Mr. Nyaunu expressed surprise that his interaction with delegates had found itself in the public domain but stressed that; “in life you must have your own values and belief system. Whatever I said refers to things happening in the party which are not good and I have the right to do so.”
According to him, he did not actually say everybody under President Mills is a President. He said he referred to them as behaving like the President for strutting around the corridors of power and acting as if they are in control of everything.
