“The New Patriotic Party (NPP) branch Chaiirman of Botodwina in the Western Region Mr Musa and his accomplices branch coordinator Benjamin Enim with some NPP supporters stormed the residence of Seth Boampong to physically assault him while openly threatening to end his life if he doesn’t stop speaking against School feeding program.

Mr Seth for the past 3 weeks has been sharing the frustration of his community over the lack of feeding to pupils in his community.
It is on record that the caterers of the school feeding program have not been cooking since school reopened this term in Botodwina a suburb of mpohor District. He being a mouth piece of the community means that teachers and parents together with the pupils of the affected school have came to him with complaints of the problem.
He then visited the school for over a week to ascertain the truth in the complaints and started firing on all available platforms regarding the predicament of his community.
His continues to hammer on the issues on almost all social political programs in and around Sekondi-Takoradi, Shama and the Ahanta enclave, attracting the displeasure of the NPP folks who think the NDC caller was denigrating the image of the regional school feeding coordinator who doubles as the NPP regional women’s organiser, Madam Abena Kwalah.
