The Chairman of the Konadu for 2012 campaign and one of the fiercest critics of President Attah Mills, Hon. Teye-Nyaunu, has once again waged an assault on the President saying he(President) has a blurred vision and cannot read due to his terrible eye defect.

According to the MP, several letters written to the President has to be read to him by his aids simply because his eyes are weak to enable him to do that by himself.

Mr Teye-Nyaunu is known to have a history of attacking the health condition of the President John Evans Attah Mills.

In the run up to the 2008 elections Hon. Teye-Nyaunu who is the Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo is quoted publicly as saying ‘Let us go to Congress and elect another flagbearer!’, let’s not behave like ostriches and pretend we don’t have a problem’. “The Prof is sick as such we should concede”.

He added that the Professor’s health is such that the party must stand up and prepare for another congress so as to save the NDC from another shameful defeat in the December elections.

His comments then, was met with a lot of public condemnation which made the NDC party summon him before the National Executive Council of the party.

Just last week when Nana Konadu and her team met delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) from Ablekuma North, South and Central at Extima Hotel at Mataheko in Accra, Hon. Teye-Nyaunu is reported to have described President Mills as virtually blind adding that the President’s health continues to worsen by the day and it is important that Nana Konadu is elected during the party congress to lead the NDC party come 2012 elections.

Speaking to the media, Hon. Teye –Nyaunu, who defended his comments was however surprised that his remarks had come to the public domain.

“I’m shocked that my comments have been aired; it was an internal party affair since the gathering was made up of only NDC delegates’’ he said.

He added that due to the President’s poor leadership skill, his position and power appears have been usurped by Ato Ahwoi who is currently running the show at the Castle.
