?For confessing on Prez Mahama?s innocence

As the good book in 1 Chronicle 16:22 puts it, ?touch not my anointed and do my Prophet no harm,? it is becoming increasingly clear by the day that, leading figures of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who accused President John Mahama of plotting to kill Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia are now being haunted by their own guilty conscience, and as a result have started singing like a canary.

Available information, which is well-known by the leaders of the NPP indicates, the 2012 vice presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr Bawumia was well aware that President Mahama, together with officials of the ruling party and National Security had no hand in his accident as alleged by his party?s General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, but he deliberately declined to come public to rubbish his General Secretary?s unwarranted allegation.

In an attempt to lay the issue regarding the false accusation of innocent persons to rest, a founding father of the NPP and Ghana?s former Ambassador to Serbia, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has exposed the political chicanery of Dr Bawumia, Sir John and other leading members of the NPP who accused the President and National Security of masterminding the accident.

Revealing Dr. Bawumia?s hidden position on the unwarranted accusation leveled against the President by Sir John, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe in his book titled ?Never Say Die?, narrated how Dr. Bawumia told him, and other party faithful how he regards his party?s General Secretary?s accusations as baseless, unwarranted and without merit.

Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe wrote ?I happened to visit Bawumia at his Kanda residence to commiserate with him a few days after the accident, and in the presence of several guests, he derided any notion that this could be an assassination attempt. Not only did he think that there was an absence of any rational evidence that this was an? assassination attempt but he also referenced his close relationship with President Mahama, going all the way back to their childhood days as sons of popular Northern politicians?.

According to the one time Chairman of the Ghana Football Association ?Dr. Bawumia found it impossible to conceive of Mahama abetting his assassination and he said so openly. Personally, I was dismayed that Owusu Afriyie would make such a preposterous allegation, especially at the time when the NPP is in court trying to prove that the 2012 elections were stolen. I worried that baseless allegations by leading party members would negatively affect the party?s image in terms of credibility.?

Interestingly, though Dr. Bawumia had in mind the President couldn?t have masterminded his accident, he kept quiet without uttering a word to dispel the allegations but instead he issued a vexatious statement ostensibly to clear the air on the whereabouts of the accident car.

This revelation by Dr Nyaho Tamakloe dovetails on an earlier revelation by an NPP guru in one of the Tamale constituencies to the effect that the Sunday, March 17, 2013 accident was as a result of Dr. Bawumia?s own making.

According to the NPP man who claimed to being hunted, Dr. Bawumia is suffering from an internal hernia (known in Dagbani as Poli) that is only known to very close associates of him, and that any time it struck him, he feels restless as if he is about to pass on.

He said, the driver of the vehicle that was involved in the accident panicked and suddenly applied the brakes when the sickness struck Dr. Bawumia in the middle of their journey causing the Toyota V8 Land cruiser to tumble several times.

Dr. Bawumia, who is in the Supreme Court witness box as a star witness for the petitioners challenging the results of the 2012 election was involved in an accident on Sunday, March 17, this year on the Bole-Bamboi road in the Northern Region of Ghana.

The car in which he was travelling had two tyres burst and somersaulted several times as a result of which he and other occupants sustained minor injuries.

In the wake of the unfortunate incident, the General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie organized a press conference to accuse President Mahama, officials of the NDC and National Security officials of plotting to kill Dr. Bawumia.

According to him, National Security officials at the behest of President Mahama tampered with the tyres of the brand new vehicle on which Dr. Bawumia was travelling.

But in the latest revelation, it is quite clear that Dr. Bawumia knew very well the President was innocent of the charges, especially as he has confided in Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe and other members of his party, he has just deliberately kept quiet to allow his paid party assigns to continue to lambast President Mahama.
