SOME PEOPLE in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) hate Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’, the Energy Minister, because of his immense popularity in the ruling political party, a top journalist has observed.
Kwaku Dawuro of Wontumi Radio and Movement TV Accra, who spilled the beans, said Napo’s unique kindness has made him the toast of NPP members and supporters across the country.
According to him, scores of NPP members love Napo because he is accessible, extremely kind, and always available to offer a helping hand to his party members and even non-NPP members.
However, Kwaku Dawuro said Napo’s ever increasing popularity in the NPP seems to be creating discomfort for someone ‘wicked’ people in the party, who have developed strong hatred for him without reason.
“Napo is loved by most of the NPP members because of his kindness. There are reports of Napo assisting party people who approach him for support in times of need.
“This kind nature of Napo has made him very popular in the party so some jealous people in the NPP, who hate him without justification, have started diabolical acts to pull him down but it won’t work.
“I haven’t met Napo in person before, but his amazing kindness and good works are all over the place, and we are all proud of him”, Kwaku Dawuro stated on his show on Movement TV.
As a reminder, the Daily Guide newspaper, owned by former NPP National Chairman, Freddie Blay, recently published a false story with the sole intention of denting Napo’s positive image.
Interestingly, the paper has admitted that its reportage about Napo was false and concocted to dent his image. The Daily Guide newspaper has since apologized and retracted the hoax story with another publication.
Kwaku Dawuro said that aside from being kind-hearted and accessible, Napo has also marketed himself well with his outstanding performances in this current NPP administration.
“Without Napo, there is no way that the NPP government could have implemented the free Senior High School (SHS) policy. He has also stopped the power crisis, popularly called ‘Dumsor’”, he remarked and praised Napo.
The top broadcast journalist said the opposition NDC are also afraid of Napo because he is bold and efficient, adding “the naysayers in the NPP should let Napo have his peace and sustain his good works for mother Ghana”.
