I received a message from someone i respect so much though not a friend, i have always admired his submissions until this morning when he decided to travel on the mischief road. According to him, reading through my recent post, he sees my deep hatred for Akufo-Addo. Now listen my brother, I hate sitting on high horse and telling my own story or engaging myself in bragging around. I believe myself and will remain a man of my own right guided and protected by my maker. Bro, I don?t hate Akufo-Addo and if we talk about hate I shouldn?t be mentioned at all. I can emphatically tell you may be, I am closer in blood relation to the man than you the self-acclaimed apostle of the man.

Now listen and verify, I am from the Boafi family of sakyikrom, some of our People are in Akropong Akwapim, I am a royal of course and the Boafi family is the family of Akufo-Addo?s grandfather Nana-Addo, he is a direct cousin of my grandfather Nana Yaw Krow. Our great grandfather is Rev Edward Sampson Amadi that famous Presbyterian pastor who performed many miracles at Larteh Akuapem. Akufo-Addo?s brother Edward was named after this great man usually called Osofo Sampson then. I was also named after the same person hence my name Amadi Sampson.

When Akufo-Addo?s mother died, I was part of the delegation led by our grandfather Rev Dr. L.A. Kwansa the famous former synod clerk of Presbyterian Church to Akufo-Addo and his siblings to announce to him the message his father had left before his death that, his wife must be buried by him at Akropong when she dies. Akufo-Addo told Rev Kwansa he had no objection since The Rev was the head of family of Boafi his father?s family. The woman was therefore buried at Akropong by his husband, Edward his brother and the sister was there so check from them.

If you go to Abommosu, I am the direct grandchild of Nana Bosompra and the grandchild of Akosua Boansi who settled at Atibie, we are the first class royals of the town as we speak the Abommosu queen mother was picked from our side at Atibie and whoever is abreast with traditions of the town would attest to this revelation. On top let me tell you Akufo-Addo Nanas father was the closest friend and cousin of my grandfather who was Sir Ofori Atta, chief registrar before establishing his law firm, they both lived at Kyebi as cousins and work colleagues and was always with the oldman at sakyikrom after retirement. This is the Akufo-Addo you think I hate? I have my political conviction and that?s all apart from that, I hold nothing against his person or family. I want you to take this post to your mentor to read and he will tell you to change your thoughts. Ghana is a small village but we shouldn?t sell out our convictions because of family ties or petty influences.

Now, bro, today your boss is going to announce his political future, many of you expect him to announce his coming back but massa, if I should speak from the family angle I would have asked him to forget it to remain the political force he is, he shouldn?t allow unnecessary pressures do what may not augur well for his stature. The permutations doesn?t favor him because of certain factors his handlers didn?t handle well. Today, the pythons within are more devastating than those outside and come what may they will bite him if he try trample upon them.

The reality is that, the battle is between the Akufo-Addo block joined by persons who had issues with Kufuor during the latter part of his administration, these personalities have ganged up behind Akufo-Addo with the intention of killing the Kufuor factor which is very huge to bring down. The Presidential ambition of the Ashanti potentials will also come under threat if they sit down for the Akufo-Addo philosophy to gain root. They are therefore bent on thwarting every effort by Gabby and others to exert unbridled authority over the party. Kufuor has realized this Anti Kufuor crusade but as a matured politician, pretend not to see or know but cleverly organizing his troops for the battle ahead. Some pol pundits including Amakye Boateng think the continuous dominance of Akuffo-Addo over NPP politics is going to kill the ambition of such fine materials like Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Anane and others from the Kufuor block.

These are the realities I can?t hide, writing on such issues shouldn?t be interpreted to mean hatred for the man.
