‘John Boadu was sacrificed’ – Dr Smart

On Saturday, July 16, 2022, delegates from the dominant New Patriotic Party (NPP) voted to remove John Boadu from office.

Justin Frimpong Kodua succeeded John Boadu as the General Secretary (JFK).

Dr. Smart Sarpong, a Senior Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Science Research at Kumasi Technical University, discussed this in an interview on Peace FM’s morning program “Kokrokoo” and claimed that a number of issues contributed to John Boadu’s defeat.

One of the contributing factors was the party’s “abysmal” performance in the 2020 general election, which resulted in a hung parliament.

“John Boadu wasn’t lucky. In my opinion, John Boadu even did well to lose with that margin. He took all the shots and was sacrificed on behalf of the CEOs who spearheaded the 2020 campaign. People held the executives responsible for the party’s dismal performance, thus he was forced to bear the full burden since several decided not to run again, he said.

The fact that “others also believed he couldn’t convince the President to rearrange his nominees as the General Secretary and the party representative who had access to the cabinet,” in his words, was the most stunning piece of information he chose. So they made the decision to reorganize him and demonstrate the process to him.

“Aside from the fact that he is a lawyer, they chose him because of his promises, so he should do well to fulfil them,” he said.
