John Boadu’s criticisms unfair- Jennifer Queen


A DEPUTY National communications officer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), says barrage of criticisms directed at Mr John Boadu, General Secretary of the party are unfair.
Ahead of the party’s delegates conference in Accra on Saturday to elect national officers, ‘JB’ as he is fondly called, is facing loads of criticisms from some members of the party.
The general secretary hopeful is being criticised for not picking his calls and also failing to lend a helping hand to party members in need.
Jennifer Queen expressed utter displeasure at the criticisms, saying “with the busy schedules of Mr Boadu as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of our party, he cannot be picking every call at a go”.
“As a general secretary of our party, he attends cabinet meetings which sometimes travel deep into the night, therefore, he cannot practically be responding to all his calls as they come”
She continued in an interview with Sompa radio in Kumasi on Wednesday “As the chief scribe of our party, JB handles all issues emanating from the constituencies across the country, so always picking his calls practically impossible”
According to Queen, Mr Boadu as committed he is to the affairs of the party, always try his best to return most of his missed calls at his free time.
On the issue of Mr Boadu not helping party members out, the deputy communications officer, pointed out that the former national organiser has helped a number of party members in diverse ways.
“I know for a fact that Mr Boadu, has given a lot of job opportunities and financial assistance to several party faithful” She underscored.
The NPP communicator therefore, called on party people who have benefitted from the benevolence of Mr Boadu to come out and proclaim to the world.
Queen insisted that Mr Boadu as general secretary is the best bet for the party to break the ‘8’.
This is because Mr Boadu, over the years has acquired the needed experience to map up workable strategies to secure third term victory for the party in 2024.
“Even as acting general secretary, he was able to snatch victory from an incumbent party in 2016, maintained power in 2020 and therefore, can do same in 2024” Queen stressed, whilst, imploring the delegates to choose wisely on Saturday, especially on the general secretary position.
Mr Boadu is being challenged by four other persons but the contest is expected to be a straight fight between him and lawyer Justin Frimpong Kodua, CEO of the National Youth Employment Authority (NYEA).
