I WAS APPALLED BY MAHAMA’S SAKAWA COMMENTS ABOUT AKYEMS ~ PREZ. AKUFO-ADDO
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has expressed his dismay over the reference to Akyems as being Sakawa people by John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the NDC.
In an hour interview with Kwabena Kwakye KenCity Media which was aired on Oman 107.1 FM/Net2 Television, the President could not bring himself to believe what the former president said about the people of Akyem as being Sakawa.
“I was appalled by Mahama’s Sakawa reference to the people of Akyem” the President stated, worriedly.
“Ask yourself what would have happened if I had made such a statement about Gonjas. There would have been an uproar if this had come from me” the President said.
In his belief, President Akufo-Addo, observed, he doesn’t think it is right for a former leader and the one who wants a comeback to be engaging in such tribal spats since they breed disunity amongst the people.
The President also touched on some pertinent issues which he believes are more central to the development of the country than concentrating on issues to do with the flagbearer of the NDC.
“Let’s talk about more important things than him” President Akufo-Addo urged Kwabena Kwakye.
The President, within the last two months, has availed himself to some radio stations in Kumasi, Cape Coast and Accra to tell Ghanaians his achievements and why they should renew his mandate and that of the New Patriotic Party.
