Akyem Sakawa: You Said Worst Things, 2020 Election Is Not About Pandering To Your Petty Whining, Frustrations — Sammy Gyamfi Tells Akufo-Addo
LISTEN SEP 5, 2020

National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has taken yet another swipe at President Akufo-Addo

He said the NDC will not succumb to the petty whining and frustrations of the Akufo-Addo led government.

Last Monday, the flagbearer of the NDC, Mr John Dramani Mahama in a post on his Facebook page chided President Akufo-Addo and his government over the controversial Agyapa Gold Royalties deal.

“Agyapa Royalties fraud is the last straw: The Akyem Sakawa Boys and Grandpas must go”, the former President said while commenting on the Agyapa Royalties deal.

But at meeting with Catholic Bishops, President Akufo-Addo described the utterances by Mr John Dramani Mahama as completed unacceptable.

“The comment made by my opponent, Akyem 'sakawa' people. I have not heard any public figure in this country, independent, yourselves, anybody comment on it. It's completely unacceptable.

"If I was to get up to make a comment about Northerners, or Gonjas, you can imagine the uproar that will be in the country”, the president said.

The NDC firebrand Sammy Gyamfi in a Facebook statement noted that President Akufo- Addo made worst pronouncements in the past.

“Again, has President Akufo Addo forgotten about his description of President Mills of blessed memory as “Professor do little”, as well as his recent description of his critics as “naysayers” and “political Jeremiahs”?" a part of the statement reads.

Sammy Gyamfi concludes, “Until President Akufo-Addo rises above pettiness to address these critical issues that actually border on the peace and cohesion of Ghana, I would consider his comments in the attached video as another joke from him. May I remind him that the 2020 election is about rescuing this country from his misrule and divisive governance and not about pandering to his petty whining and frustrations.”

Comrade Sammy Gyamfi writes on his Facebook Wall:

It is now obvious that President Akufo Addo and the NPP's obsession with the name "Mahama" can no longer be discounted. Indeed, for those who had time to count, President Mahama's name is said to have received over 1000 mentions during the NPP's recent manifesto launch, far more than any policy proposition the NPP presented to the Ghanaian people.

In fact, President Akufo Addo's own incessant references to the name "Mahama" in nearly every public appearance of his, goes to confirm that the central focus of the NPP's campaign this year is President Mahama and nothing more. But suffice it to say also that this campaign based on a "Mahama phobia" is falling apart.

In the video below, President Akufo-Addo is actually asking the Catholic Bishops Conference to condemn what exactly? So President Akufo Addo is actually alive to social media political jabs, whilst he pretends not to see nor hear about any of the state-sponsored acts that have threatened and continue to threaten the peace and cohesion of this country?

Can President Akufo Addo remind himself of his description of "ECOWAS Citizens" in reference to a particular ethnic group and the deliberate misuse of state security agencies against that ethnic group during the recent voter registration exercise? Was he not in this country when the NPP MP for Adansi-Asokwa, K.T Hammond described Ewes as Togolese?

So President Akufo Addo has not heard about the state-sponsored ethnocentric harassment against Ewes and northerners at Banda, Ketu South, Ahafo Ano North among others, during the recent voter registration exercise?

Again, has President Akufo Addo forgotten about his description of President Mills of blessed memory as “Professor do little”, as well as his recent description of his critics as “naysayers” and “political Jeremiahs”?

Until President Akufo-Addo rises above pettiness to address these critical issues that actually border on the peace and cohesion of Ghana, I would consider his comments in the attached video as another joke from him. May I remind him that the 2020 election is about rescuing this country from his misrule and divisive governance and not about pandering to his petty whining and frustrations.
