Speaking on Radio Gold, Sammy Awuku opined that the nations faces doom should the administration of the capital be left in the hands of the Accra Mayor. He indicated that, since becoming the Mayor of the capital, Oko Vanderpuije has unilaterally taken certain decision and actions which have not been in the interest of the nation.

According to Sammy, he isn?t surprised about the Mayor?s announcement to rename the hockey pitch after President Mills since he had undertaken such an action in the past.

He recalled the renaming of the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium back Accra Sports Stadium by the Mayor over reasons that Ohene Djan was not a member of the Ga State and therefore it would not be appropriate to name the stadium after him.

He was also of the view that the Presidency is not being hard on the Mayor even though they know of his mistakes as Accra Mayor

?It?s very selective and hypocritical on the part of the Chief of Staff and the President because the same thing the man did with the hockey saga, that was the same strategy he used for the Ohene Djan Stadium or Accra Sports Stadium.

I think that this man, this Oko Vanderpuiye man, is dividing us with this tribal thing left, right, center; if we don?t take care, our country will break down before our very eyes,? he stated.
