Member of the New Patriotic Party, Hopeson Adorye has disclosed how he led a group to Kumasi to beat ace broadcaster Captain Smart for reportedly campaigning for John Mahama in 2013.
Talking as panelist on Net2 TV’s ‘The Seat’ program, Hopeson Adorye stated he got wind of a plot by Captain Smart to rallied a few market women to support John Mahama during the 2012 election petition hearing.
Hopeson Adorye says efforts were made quick to organize guys to go and lay pains on Captain Smart but for a few reason Captain Smart fled the planned attack.
Hopeson Adorye was answering to claims by Captain Smart that he’s a lifelong member of the New Patriotic Party. The NPP Parliamentary candidate for Kpone Kantamanso in the 2020 elections stated Captain Smart should not carry himself as a member of the party.
He disclosed that the only connection between the NPP and Captain Smart is his association with Former President John Agyekum Kufuor.
“I want Captain Smart to stop calling himself as a member of the NPP. Before we went to court in 2013, Captain Smart was collecting ID cards of market women in Kumasi to make them support John Mahama at the Supreme Court.
“He was mobilizing the women to support Mahama. We were looking for him to beat him but somehow he managed to escape so he should stop calling himself as NDC member. Today, he calls himself an NPP member, what kind of lie is that,” he mentioned.
Hopeson Adorye additionally disclosed another example where he believes Captain Smart made untrue claims on radio.
“He said 2016 Akufo-Addo called him to come and brief him on the presidential diary scandal, he is first class liar. I broke that story. I got that intel and made a statement. When did he become a member of the NPP. We got the information so we went to Kumasi to look for him but he was lucky we couldn’t find him” he stated.
