In a recent interview, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe flayed the Chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay for his lack of loyalty.

Speaking on Metro TV on Monday, April 25, 2022, he said Blay is corrupt after promising to provide 275 buses for the constituencies of the party as part of his campaign to win the chairmanship slot of the party in 2018.

"When he was campaigning, he promised numerous buses that he said he will bring to the party, where are they now? [after he won the chairmanship] Some people like [Freddie Blay] you don't give them power; that is why I say Akufo-Addo has changed in a way I don’t understand.

"Blay is his name and he was a CPP man," Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe said.
