Akufo-Addo nearly pierced my eyes with his fingers at a funeral for criticizing his government — Dr. Wereku Brobbey

Leading Member of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP), Dr. Charles Wereku Brobbey has claimed that President Akufo-Addo nearly assaulted him at a funeral.

According to Dr. Brobbey, the president nearly attacked him when they both met at a funeral for criticizing his government.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM, Mr. Wereku Brobbey said he used to have a good relationship with the president in the early days of his administration.

Asked what the current status of his relationship with the president is, the leading NPP member spoke of a rather frosty one in which the president at a funeral attempted to assault him while accusing him of peddling falsehoods.

“He met me at a funeral, and he nearly pierced my eye with his finger… It was in anger. Because if you remember, I granted an interview to Joy. It was conducted by Evans Mensah. It was later, after the interview, that he met me. If I had not pulled my head back, he would have pierced my eyes with his finger.

“If you like, you can go and ask him. He said I was peddling falsehood,” he claimed.
