That Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo are struggling with the idea of a concrete campaign message for the people of Ghana in this year’s elections cannot be far from the truth, as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, has run back to the overflogged Woyome judgement debt issue, and making it his major campaign message on the ongoing nationwide campaign tour he has embarked on with his running mate, Dr Mahamud Bawumia, beginning from the Eastern region.
Even though expected, Nana Akufo-Addo’s decision to run back to the Woyome judgement debt issue is not only an insult of the intelligence of the people of the Volta region and particularly, their chiefs, who were present at the last regional house of chiefs’ meeting in Ho, where the NPP flagbearer delivered a speech and refuted calls on him to denounce genocidal comments made against Voltarians and Gas by Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, a leading member of his presidential campaign and NPP guru.
As serious as, ‘genocide MP,’ Kennedy Agyapong’s call for the mass slaughtering of Voltarians and Gas in Ashanti region and elsewhere is, on the basis of which it has attracted widespread condemnation from far and near, Nana Akufo-Addo claimed he could not comment on the issue because the case is in court, adding that the court should be the proper forum for the matter to be dealt with, an explanation which left the Volta chiefs in total shock.
Some chiefs and citizens of the Volta region, who spoke to The Catalyst after the meeting had expressed indifference and told the paper that they were sure the NPP flagbearer, by his conduct, was communicating to them, albeit subtly, that he had fully endorsed the genocidal war declaration on them by the Assin North MP. They told the paper that Akufo-Addo, prior to his ambushed meeting with the Volta regional house of chiefs, had made the Woyome judgement debt issue a singsong on his campaign trail even though the case is in court, and that he was only showing he and his party’s usual disrespect for the region. They indicated their belief that the NPP flagbearer would return to business as usual as soon as he resumed his campaign tours. They have been vindicated.
Addressing NPP supporters at a rally at Kyebi on Sunday, Nana Akufo-Addo Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo said there will be nothing like “Woyome scandal” under his presidency as has been witnessed under President John Evans Atta Mills.
He seized the occasion to launch a vitriolic attack on President Mills. Calling the President incompetent, the NPP flagbearer described him as a lame duck president who is not in charge of his own administration, and that is why the Woyome scandal could have happened under his watch.
Nana Akufo-Addo who played an integral part in the Kufuor-led NPP government before becoming the party’s presidential candidate in the 2008 elections and campaigned on a message of ‘all is well’ and therefore ‘we are moving forward,’ slogan said President Mills has failed to solve the numerous problems confronting the country, in the last three and half years and that is why Ghanaians are experiencing hardships.
He called on Ghanaians to vote for him in this year’s elections in order for him to become the president that will restore hope and bring back the economic successes chalked by the Kufuor administration, which did not leave behind any Woyome scandal.
Nana Akufo-Addo’s obsession with the Woyome judgement debt issue is legendary. He had had to postpone the critical issue of choosing a running mate several times in order to allow time and space for his campaign team and the NPP communications outfit to sustain the matter in the media for months running, purely for propaganda purposes.
With the issues of Kennedy Agyapong’s genocidal war declaration and his running mate, Dr Mahamud Bawumia’s ‘bawumianomics’ lecture becoming another albatross around his neck, Nana Akufo-Addo is desperately running for cover under Woyome with the hope that Ghanaians will fall for his gargantuan ploy.
