The Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has taken a swipe at some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who he describes as “arrogant and empty”.
The former sports minister , who spoke to Fiifi Banson on GHOne was reacting to an assertion that the New Patriotic Party is a party full of intellectuals.
Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said, he admits that they are fine brains in the NPP but there are some who are equally, utterly ignorant and empty.
He disagreed with those who claim the NDC lacks intellectuals. He said they in the NDC, know a couple of people in the ruling NPP who were repeated during their university days.
“NPP people some of them are fantastic people but some of them are empty and arrogant. Please they should give us a break. This thing about people… we were in school with them, we were in school with them,” Elvis Afiryie Ankrah told Fiifi Banson.
“Some of us were SRC Presidents; they didn’t even qualify to be potters in our administration. They should give us a break. Some of them didn’t pass, they were referred. What is all this nonsense, arrogance for? They should give us a break,” he added.
