Northern Region: Top NDC gurus trade insults on live radio


Two top executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Northern Region on Monday threw caution to the wind when they allowed their emotions to have the better part of them in a live radio discussion on the attack on the Regional Secretary of the party, Salisu Be-Awuribe.

The immediate past Regional Director of Elections, Tanko Rashid Computer and the assaulted Regional Secretary left listeners in shock when they overheard both trading insults in a desperate move to denigrate each other while the studio microphones were left unmuted.

Computer on Tamale based Diamond Fm in a panel discussion is reported to have accused the Secretary of working in concert with other executives to undermine the administration of the Regional Chairman, Chief Alhaji Ibrahim Mobila Abdulai which informed the attack on him.

But not taking kindly to the accusations after being called on the line,  Salisu Be-Awuribe came after him in rather unprintable words heightening the already tensed situation the party finds itself after the attack.

But to show the man in him, the recently appointed Regional Executive member was overheard saying “What type of hypocrisy is this, and you call yourself a lawyer, you don’t understand what you are talking about, simple mathematics, I don’t deal with unintelligent people, I don’t deal with unintelligence minds, I have never fail my exams, I pass all my exams, I have PHD and he knows it”.

“We are all born with words, you know my words, if you use any words on me, I will use same, and you know I have never fail my exams up to my PHD level, am just telling you”.

Salisu Be-Awuribe who was quiet all this while retorted “I don’t deal with incredible people, the fact is that I am a person of credibility, am a person of good upbringing and good moral standard”.

“As a result of the good moral upbringing and standard, am not happy with the way things have gone, but if you have characters like computer and co, and they push you overboard, you are force to say certain things. For the sake of the listeners I apologize for the words used, with all apology I don’t want to continue”, he apologized and cut the line. Zoure/2018
