The Daily Guide Newspaper broke the news on Monday May 16 that NDC’s Sam George, with a sheep and two bottles of whisky, knelt down for one hour and 25 minutes to beg the chiefs of Ningo constituency for the derogatory remarks he had made against them.
According to the report, his plea was rejected, as the chiefs had given him the condition to go back to the radio station where he granted that interview and retract the comments.
However, speaking on Citi News’ Eyewitness News, in response to the publication about him by the Daily Guide Newspaper, he (Sam George) fumed over the distortion of information. He rubbished the reports of him kneeling down to beg the chiefs. He also pointed out that the picture of him kneeling down was at a different event all together, which explains that the Newspaper was just making things up.
The chiefs of Ningo Prampam constituency had vowed to complicate things for Sam during his campaign in the area following the young aspirant’s derogatory comments on radio that the Chief of Ningo is lawless. As it stands, It has not been clarified if the Ningo Chiefs and Sam George have settled their differences.
I’ll Continue to raise hell for NPP – NDC’s Sam George
As the Ningos are still deliberating on whether to complicate things for NDC’s Sam George, so is he planning to make things difficult for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and their flagbearer, Nana Addo. He also said on the programme that he will continue to torment the opposition NPP and its flagbearer. Sam George might be seeking peace from the Ningos but it does not mean he would not man up to his opponents.
Sam George’s reason for saying this is that the opposition party has relentlessly made efforts to tarnish his image among his fellow NDC loyalists. According to him, the NPP has adopted such tactics because he is frustrating their bid to return to power.
