The General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie also known as Sir John has been asked to be ‘careful’ in his utterances because he is still ‘under a bond’ to be of good behaviour.
One can recall that the Supreme Court convicted Sir John and Hopeson Adorye, a member of the communication team of the NPP of criminal contempt following various ‘contemptuous’ comment they had made on radio.
Sir John was fined GH˘5,000 and was asked to sign a bond to be of good behaviour for six months or in default serve six months in jail.
Central Regional communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs, analyzing how Sir John have been talking on radio especially on political issues, have asked him (Sir John) to be ‘careful because he has signed a bond to be of good behaviour for six months’
“Looking at the way Sir John has been speaking after the ruling, I think he needs an extortionist to take out the ‘gbeshie’ (a word used by lawyer Ayikoi Otoo who represented Sir John when he was charged with contempt to indicate that whenever his client (Sir John) goes on radio, he is filled with evil spirit which makes him spill out derogatory comments) from him so he behaves gentlemanly when he appears on radio and TV. This is because he is a different person when he is not on radio; he is so friendly and so nice. He seems not to repent…” Allotey Jacobs told Kwami Sefa-kayi on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’.
