Deputy General Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho says he is in full support of his boss, Asiedu Nketiah’s assertions that President Akufo-Addo should be blamed for the murder of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.
He explained that the mentality of some evil minded Ghanaians taking the law into their hands started when the country looked on whiles NPP vigilante groups beat up some NDC supporters after taking over power in the 2016 elections.
He added that under the auspices of President Akufo-Addo, a police officer was beaten at the Flag Staff House in the full glare of other police officers but nothing happened to the perpetrators; hence giving way for some people to take advantage of the security lapses.
“NPP vigilante groups physically assaulted NDC supporters . . . a police officer was beaten up at Flag Staff House, nothing happened to the perpetrators and some evil minded Ghanaians have taken advantage of the fact that, under this administration anyone can do whatever pleases him or her and get away with it,” Koku Anyidoho averred on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show.
The Deputy Chief Scribe wondered the loud silence of some clergymen like Bishop Owusu Bempah of Glorious Word Ministry International over the happenings under Akufo-Addo government as he used to do in former President Mahama’s administration.
Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, had earlier on in the show, stressed that it was needless to politicize the senseless killing of Captain Mahama issue and also inappropriate to blame Akufo Addo’s government for it.
To him [Owusu Bempah], it might even be that the gruesome murders and other happenings going on in the country, have their root cause from those who made a lot of sacrifices prior to the 2012 and 2016 elections; and quoted copiously from the Bible to back his comments.
Responding to this, Koku Anyidoho curiously enquired to know the reason behind the horn he gave to President Akufo Addo when he visited his church, as vandalism, criminalities and gruesome murders have taken over the country.
“You say we shouldn’t blame the President, if we don’t blame him, who should we blame? He is the President and what has never happened before is happening now and you say we shouldn’t blame the President?.
“When it started from the NDC, Owusu Bempah talked but when people went to the circuit court in Kumasi to cause commotion, Delta Force dragged out Regional Security Coordinator and Delta Force took over Kintampo Waterfalls which led to the death of 19 students and NPP bigwigs sang the praises of Delta Force, where was Owusu Bempah? Owusu Bempah, be assured that we will blame Nana Akufo Addo today, tomorrow and the day after,” he posited.
He however urged Owusu Bempah to pray for the country, asking God to take away Akufo Addo’s bad governance of a burden from Ghanaians.
