Mr Obiri Baohen in the leaked telephone conversation that went viral last week is heard complaining about certain happenings in the NPP.
He lamented about being sidelined in the party since it took office last year and complained about not benefitting from that victory as others.
He also claimed in the conversation that the NPP had received GHS50 billion from the presidency in support of the Party’s Delegates Conference which was held in Cape Coast last year.
