Akufo-Addo Demands Power-Sharing
Snippets of information reaching the Crystal Clear Lens is that Akufo-Addo the defeated Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not accept his loss and is feverishly planning an evil and a blood shedding agenda that will help him taste power after miserably lossing to President John Mahama, the NDC's Candidate in the 2012 elections.
Our sources close to the defeated but very desperate flag bearer revealed to the paper that Akufo-Addo told the African Union Chairman and President of Benin, H.E Thomas Yayi Boni point blank that he will not accept this defeat again and will do everything possible to taste political power which he has been dying for, even if it will mean shedding innocent blood.
His close confidants told us that Akufo-Addo could not contain the defeat which he described as shameful and too embarrassing and is demanding for a power-sharing agreement just like the Kenya scenario though most of the party top hierarchy are against his evil plans of sending the country into chaos.
According to the information, the plan of the Akufo-Addo were rejecting the results just as he did yesterday and head to the supreme court today and when the Supreme court rejects his petition, then he will ask their supporters to embark on series of agitations to make the nation ungovernable.
After these plans which were nursed by the flag bearer before the elections succeed he will then demand for a power sharing deal like what happened in Kenya.
Akufo-Addo, therefore endorsed his errant supporters resorting to violence and killing of NDC supporters across the country and told them that he won the elections and nothing could stop him from becoming the president of Ghana. Akufo-Addo's speech yesterday suggested he want to go the Ouattara-style presidency which saw the deaths of thousands and many mass graves in Cote d' Ivoire.
The NPP flag bearer, who is the author of “The Stolen verdict” against ex-president Jerry John Rawlings in the 1992 elections, says no matter how long it takes, the leadership of his party will contest the results of the just ended presidential elections in which he was defeated. Addressing a charged crowd at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Akufo-Addo said “we know we won this election” adding, “we are not going to retreat from the decision that we have taken.”
In 2008, the NPP leading in only two out of 10 regions almost declared itself winners of the elections. The two regions were Ashanti and Eastern regions.
In Cote d' Ivoire, President Ouattara for a year cut off the northern parts of the country from the rest, took power in April 2011 with at least 3,000 people killed and 150 women raped during the conflict period, often in targeted acts perpetrated along political, ethnic, and religious lines.
At 69, and knowing this year's elections offered him the last opportunity of realizing his dream of becoming president like his late father, a former president of Ghana under the Busia regime, Akufo-Addo, has decided to stop at nothing to ensure his dream comes into fruition against the will of Ghanaians.
However, his earlier attempts in 1998 and in the 2008 elections floundered and therefore he sees this third time attempt, as he himself succinctly puts it at Koforidua last year, an 'all-die-be-die' and winning the elections at all cost which Ghanaians rejected.
