DELIBERATE ATTEMP TO START A RELIGIOUS-POLITICAL TURF WAR IN BRONG AHAFO REGION:
I write as a deeply concerned NPP member who is peeved by the commentary being run after the unfortunate, wicked and condemnable attempt to assassinate Kwame Baffoe Abronnye of the NPP by one Jafaru Yakubu and his cohorts in Atebubu on Saturday 13th January 2018.
This is undoubtedly a criminal act masterminded and perpetuated by a section of his own party members against him. I listened to an interview granted Jafaru Yakubu on moonlite fm this morning and he said he went to the DCE’s house where the attack took place to counsel Kwame Abronnye to withdraw the supposed allegations made against the office of the regional chief Imam.
To start with, Kwame Baffoe didn’t author that internal audit report he referred to in condemning the BA RCC for expending the 50,000 cedis. He was only referencing the official report which is a matter of public knowledge.
To start with and going by the excuse given by the said Jafaru Yakubu for going to the place, I want to ask a few questions?
1. Is he the spokesperson of the regional chief imam?
2. Was he sanctioned to undertake that task by the office of the regional chief imam?
3. Let’s assume that he, 1 single muslim out of all muslims in BA went there to ask Abronnye to withdraw the alleged remarks, was he going to record the apology and replay it to the chief imam?
4. Was the Chief Imam there in person to receive the apology?
I don’t think a highly religious person like the Brong Ahafo Regionsal Chief Imam operates on an eye for an eye basis.
Much to my surprise and dismay I have read a piece coming from the Regional Minister himself, Hon Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh who is a lawyer and funny enough, after adducing reasons as to why he cannot be held responsible for the attempted murder of Kwame Baffoe, he, an astute lawyer also rehashes the very same excuse given by the said Jafaru Yakubu for the attack on Abronnye. It is informative to also note that this very same premise is given in a press release authored ostensibly for Jafau Yakubu by one Maxwell Mahama, a close confidant and aide to the Hon RM. Hon Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh claims to have gotten that notion from information filtering in to him. I would like to ask the Hon Regional Minister that from where and from whom exactly is he picking this information?
I see this as a wishy washy attempt to turn this clearly criminal act into a religious political exchange trying to deliberately rope in the name of the Regional Chief Imam.
