Impeach President Kufuor - Busia's Daughter

... Chief of staff Mpiani should resign

... Attorney General rendered incompetent

... I have been a ‘political prisoner’ for the past six years

Nana Frema Busia, on Monday, called for the impeachment of president John Kufuor for alleged acts of treason.

The daughter of the late Prime Minister of Ghana, Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia, also called for the impeachment of the ex-National Security Minister, Francis Poku, as well as the resignation of the Chief of Staff, Kwadwo Mpiani, for condoning treasonable acts and attempted murder by torture as well as obstruction of justice.

Below is the complete statement

Nana Frema Busia Press Conference

PRELUDE

When I die, I should want to leave a hallmark in the footprints of time as someone who did my very very best with dignity and integrity to serve, to genuinely serve our people from the very depths of my soul, in TRUTH. This is why I have signed a covenant of righteousness with God. What about you? Can any of our aspiring Presidential candidates do the same? Do any of them have proof of sacrificial service under threat of death, I do.

Rev ministers, distinguished guests, friends of the media, all protocols observed, I shall introduce myself, I am just another humble imperfect woman in the army of God, I am a lay Preachers daughter and a lay Preacher so I shall preach today with your indulgence and rapt attention because I believe in God who has saved my life which has been under threat these past six years because of what I know.

What I know is that President Kufuor should be impeached. President Kufour has committed an impeachable offense by condoning Francis Poku's Treason and hocus pocus against the territorial integrity of this country. An offense, which should be punishable by death instead of entrenched constitutional immunities. Our constitution is haunting us because we don’t tell the Truth. President Kufuor should be impeached and the chief of staff Kwadwo Mpiani should resign with immediate effect. Both the President and chief of staff have condoned treason and attempted murder by torture and obstructed justice and they should both face criminal proceedings. President Kufuor should certainly face criminal proceedings when he leaves office in three months stripped of Presidential immunity. Like Saul God has already removed President Kufour from his executive office this is why he is a lame duck ceremonial chief.

When President Kufour said there were no ‘political prisoners’ under his administration, he did not tell the Truth. I Nana Frema Busia declare that I have been a ‘political prisoner’ for the past six years under a ‘death sentence’ without trial. The former National security Minister, Francis Poku pronounced a death fatwa on my life to be administered by undercover torture. President Kufour with knowledge has refused to grant me a pardon from the death sentence of Francis Poku although His Excellency grants pardons for causing financial loss to the state because of his own complicity in corruption. The Kufuor Presidency is inhumane and without conscience.

We have a President who elevates the guilty and stands by when the blood of the innocent is sacrificed by a demon. A President ‘Di awu’. does not desrve to be President. Francis Poku is the God of corruption that Ghana has been worshipping, that is why God has removed him from office. How could the President set up a commission to look for lost cocaine on the MV Benjamin, when ‘the produce the evidence President’ did not have the evidence, and the cocaine was already long gone. This charade was like putting someone on trial for murder when you don’t have a corpse. The people serving sentences under the MV Benjamin trial are suffering injustice. The real culprits have national awards of Order of the Volta and vain gold chains around their necks. A mafia racket is in control of this country from all aisles of politics, for the avoidance of doubt I mean the NPP NDC CPP ETC. We have not seen the contents of the CHRAJ report on Dr. Ndoum. We also do not know who murdered the Judges in cold blood.

Talking murder, I have made allegations of attempted murder by torture against Francis Poku. The Attorney General Joe Lartey who is my Junior at the Ghana Bar, is in a serious conflict of interest and has been rendered incompetent and incapable of performing his functions because he has or ought to have documentary knowledge of facts that should result in the President’s impeachment as a Minister of Justice. He is however incapacitated because of his dual role as Attorney General and should also resign forthwith. The Attorney General does not know the law otherwise he would not have filed a response to my lawsuit which was a test of his legal skills. According to the whistle Blower Act when there is a whistle Blower complaint, there can be no lawsuit until after the whistle Blower ruling. Joe Ghartey has all the documentation on my Whistle Blower Petition, not such a good idea after all. Has the Hon Minister also shredded the documents? Joe Ghartey is in court to protect and defend the President and his boss Francis Poku not to defend the innocent.

Ambassador D. K Osei should be stripped of diplomatic immunity to stand trial for being the custodian of documents held under Presidential siege, that is, evidence of treason and for failing together with President Kufuor and chief of staff and Minister of Presidential Affairs Kwadwo Mpiani to implement measures under an agreement which was to remove me from my current official residence where I have been under life threatening siege By Francis Poku and his BNI and CID and national insecurity insurgents including his attack dogs, police recruits who were giving military training and used for undercover dubious acts and paid off on the quiet. In my case it is quite chilling that my previously assigned national security watchman Robert Ondasek and assigned bodyguard, one of Francis Poku’s military trained police Moses Kutom who lived at my official residence and wielded a gun supposedly for my round the clock security were subsequently used by Francis Poku to fabricate worthless evidence to attempt to falsely incriminate me and provide an alibi for Francis Poku. Would they not, when ordered with the appropriate incentives pull the trigger? National Security under Dr. Sam Amoo is still harboring them both. According to Madam Ama Busia if I were not Kofi Busia’s daughter I would be in jail but for what?

Madam Ama Busia of the Council of state, because she does not have an iota of Busia blood in her, but is using the name for personal gain has provided the Judas kiss of death and betrayed Kofi Busia’s blood, has aided and abetted and instructed the Presidency not to take remedial action to save my life because she is a national security agent under Francis Poku’s curse and has fabricated an alibi for Francis Poku in consultation with the BNI which was to result in my false imprisonment to die in Nsawam prison as if I were a JB Danquah. Madam Busia who has been given a national award by the President for whatever secret services, which in my opinion she does not deserve claims that my situation will be resolved over ‘her dead body’. Such a person does not have the moral stature to represent Kofi Busia. If madam Busia were a true Busia she would not have boycotted my brother’s funeral for spite. So much for allegiance to Francis Poku! Madam Busia should face criminal proceedings for aiding and abetting Francis Poku’s criminal intent to commit murder by torture.

Talking Danquah Busia mirage tradition, Other award winners and government agencies that have collaborated in my protracted torture by overt acts of commission or omission to act, orchestrated by devious master schemer, the Francis Poku torture chain include, Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Foreign Affairs under Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, Ministry of Interior under Hackman Owusu Agyeman, Papa Owusu Ankoma, Albert Kan Dapaa &Agyeman Manu, as well as Kwamena Bartels, Ministry of Information under Oboshie Sai Cofie and National Security under Dr. Sam Amoo. Other torture agencies in Francis Poku’s arsenal of my torture include the UNDP under Christophe Bahuet, Daniel Andoh of the UNDP, the UNDP volunteer Gyebi Asante, the Ghana UN mission in New York, Fifi Imbeah and Sam Afari in their capacities as Deputy National Security Coordinators, Col Yahaya of national security secretariat who was used as a decoy to destroy implementation of the Cote D’Ivoire /Ghana border security project in order to allow arms influx, various BNI, CID and national security hoodlums trained by Francis Poku in active cooperation with Parliament, the chief of Staff Kwadwo Impiani and President Kufuor. Francis Poku gets cooperation even when he does the damnest things. This is the colossal weight of oppression among others under which I was sinking with my cries of help even to the international community unheard because Ghana is their black Star which must not be soiled or sullied.

How come after international acclaim for former President Rawlings’ Structural adjustment program, President JAK qualified Ghana as a highly indebted poor country? How come after we have reached debt saturation point, instead of, ‘creating jobs for the people’ we are distributing cash to the people while the international donors who support our budgetary deficit tell us our poverty has been halved. President Bush knows that this is fussy maths.

The Chairman and Ranking member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Defence and Interior should face criminal proceedings for covering up Francis Poku's Treason etc and failing to initiate a Parliamentary inquiry since December 2006 to protect Ghana’s Ivorian border and the sensitive northern sector from arms influx. Because of Francis Poku's default Presidency and profane unaccountable budget they condoned criminal abuse of State Power.

If the whistleblower Act is not a complete fraud and a sham and a mere waste of paper CHRAJ after eleven months of what is constitutionally mandated to be a three month review under the whistle blower Act should tell the people of Ghana its ruling on a whistleblower action I filed against President Kufuor and the Presidency for obstruction of justice and condoning Francis Poku’s Treason and attempted murder by torture as well as its ruling on the whistleblower action I filed against Francis Poku for treason, international fraud, sexual harassment, Corruption, Abuse of Power etc. etc. President Kufuor should be held accountable for national insecurity and the national tragedy that is looming and for abdicating his role as President to the god of corruption that the Presidency serves with international acclaim. I am a complainant in those cases and await the rulings with interest with all of Ghana.

Under President Kufour we have systemic institutional failure. I shall as appropriate initiate legal action against some media houses including Ben Ephson and the Crusading Guide that have been used by FRANCIS POKU’S default Presidency to harass and to attempt to ruin my reputation when the Kufour Presidency that is in a secret merger with and a harbinger of corrupt CPP elements finishes his term in deserved disgrace. To borrow Rashid Kweku Baako’s TERMINOLOGY THEY SHALL BE STRIPPED NAKED.

Mr. documents who published my paper ‘Of systemic dysfunction, a not so fast track to modernity ‘does not have the nearly 200 documents in this case which are under siege by the Produce the evidence President. President JAK does not act when he has evidence but rather sets up sham commissions of enquiry when there is no evidence. This is a part of the systemic dysfunction to de addressed

The Kufuor failed governance has an underground culture of fear and silence, as well as purchased cooperation of those who should know better, including unfortunately, significant segments of the so called fourth estate the, media. This includes in particular some who have been giving national awards for undercover dirty work for the fused Poku /Kufuor Presidential farce.

In my position as Legal Counsel to National security as well as the Technical advisor and National coordinator of the now non existent functional wing of small arms commission which has been effectively dissolved by President Kufuor, I am of course privy to state secrets. When crimes are being committed against the state there is no Attorney Client Privilege. Besides the Presidency that is without integrity while holding documentary proof hostage, has publicly denounced my appointment, thus depriving it of any such privilege. President Kufour has also shamefully taken international credit for my work which includes sourcing and single handedly delivering a $1miliion project for Ghana within my first year of operation while other ECOWAS countries obtained only US $ 25,000.[twenty five thousand dollars]

The challenges of my position under Francis Poku nearly cost me my life. My life is still under threat, and my brother Nana Gyasi Busia, Kofi Busia’s son has actually died as a result of the circumstances surrounding my work. I shall at the appropriate time seek reconciliation and justice for the political persecution by the joint President Poku/ Kufuor administration. President Kufuor who set up a reconciliation commission without Truth is giving back confiscated assets with political hypocrisy even while my salary for six years has not been paid by President Kufuor as part of my torture package.

My mother, Kofi Busia’s former wife is in an ongoing emergency with fragile health and emotional pain. My life is still under threat today under President Di awu who has personally engineered a cover up and rescue package for Francis Poku. President Kufour wants me dead because his hands are tied by a drug lord and blackmailer with secret dossiers, a psychotic and sociopath who delights in torture. A dubious dangerous criminal is at large by Presidential secret pardon.

I will not be their sacrificial blood. President 'Di awuo' shall not sacrifice another BUSIA blood. I am declaring a fast of sorrows, a day of mourning and the Presidency’s day of shame.

It is with knowledge of the state of national insecurity and close knowledge of the frightening pathology of the Presidency and as an attorney with significant international experience that I declare that Ghana is on the verge of a constitutional and democratic crisis. I also of course, speak from the perspective of being the daughter of the late Prime Minister Dr. K. A. Busia, the Busia in Busia Danquah, to reclaim my father’s image and legacy from so called protégés of dubious character who are secretly ruining this country. I want to conserve and preserve my father’s, good name, legacy of truth and Christian principles and to revive his failed search for true democracy through civic education.

I am declaring an indictment on this country. Each and every Ghanaian is guilty of the corruption menace to which we have sold our very souls. This is why we will not benefit from the measly 5 percent of anticipated oil revenue for which the politicians are out there rigging elections by purchasing votes. President Kufour by this 5% deal has already compromised and shortchanged Ghana. I want to demonstrate that corruption kills. I am running for political office as a memorial to my brother, Damirifa Due. I shall seek a national memorial to commemorate his senseless death. When Oboshie Sai Coffie’s disinformation machinery was ordered to peddle national falsehoods about me on GTV and nationwide multi radio stations I warned that this shock could result in a fatality.

I want all of Ghana to take a very close look at ourselves in the mirror, using my experiences over the last 6 years as a reflection of who we have collectively become, A wicked nation of murderers and thieves, a nation that rapes itself, A nation that worships the ‘god of corruption’ and dirty money. A nation that is incapable of staring truth in the face and recognizing it. A nation that exudes moral decadence and lack of ethical values as if these were worthy of our collective boasts in who should cast the first stone.

Ghana’s freedom is in chains held bondage to Presidential corruption and effusive greed. Our justice system is a mirage as social injustices create entrenched conflicts in Yendi, Bawku Gushiegu Anloga, all across Ghana, both north and south Ghana is falling apart at the seams, with frightening upsurge in arms proliferation and drugs as we sing Peace.

Ghana under President Kufuor is a drug destination of choice, armed robbers are running riot in this country. Law and order have broken down as Politicians are going around with macho men adding to the mayhem with a looming election where the intelligence on the ground is that there are forces poised to do a Kenya or a Zimbabwe. There is breakdown of law and order, upsurge in violence, violent socio political upheavals and a President missing in action.

President Kufuor has condoned treason against this country and attempted murder by Francis Poku’s torture infliction as well as obstructed justice and committed an impeachable offense, while playing his Patriot game of catch me if you can. His Excellency who is hardly in the country where he is supposed to be President has shut down my operations at the small arms commission at a time like this. Is the President interested in the Peace and security of this country when arms inflows and local production of arms as well as governmental imports are at intolerable limits?

I am making a national address in a role as a shadow Presidential candidate and as a Protest candidate for Manhyia to make an alternate state of the nation address and call for the immediate impeachment of the man who established the fake office of accountability and whose parliamentary majority passed the ridiculous whistle blower act which makes Attorney General privy to documentary submissions in order to manipulate the process behind the scenes to be held accountable.

Where is the opposition in this country? We are not even practicing democracy. If we had an effective and honest Parliament with a credible opposition President Kufuor who abdicated his Presidency to Francis Poku would have been impeached a long time ago. Francis Poku would also have had to resign before the cocaine on the MV Benjamin got lost. When his Excellency returns from yet another insensitive, waste of state funds, worthless award winning travel in collusion with the international community that has intelligence of his secret of secrets, while the people he now terms lazy because he has not provided them with jobs in spite of registering their names when he came into power under false pretenses wallow in hardships, his Excellency should be held to account.

The peoples representatives including particularly NPP Parliamentarians should impeach MR president and put a hault to his jolly plane rides, because his Excellency has the potential of causing them to lose the election. President Kufuor is certainly a liability to the NPP. If my classmate and ‘learned friend. Alban Bagbin’ who is occupying Kofi Busia’s former seat, as leader of opposition in parliament, is not in a secret pact with government, the opposition should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President. I am making a timely intervention prior to elections to usher in a new era of seriousness into our national affairs because I believe in Ghana. I believe that God has given Ghana a future and a hope. I believe that we can build a worthy Ghana. I believe that we should have a semblance of a real Parliament in the next administration. FORWARD I wish to pour out my life in the service of God, country and humanity. My vision of Public service is as a divine calling to ministry. My ministry shall be under the watchful and protective eye of God as a ‘God’s Eye’ ministry guided on my journey by a gold star standard of excellence, not a clouded black star shrouded in corruption and cocaine deals without the fear of God. My aspiration, is to administer to the needs of our people and our country as an indivisible nation under God almighty. The example of an Executive President who acts as a ceremonial tribal chief without moral leadership or vision is not a good model for Ghana.

With God as my help, I shall continue my service to country in the areas of Peace and security Development and Justice, With God as my help I shall change the face and the dynamics of the politics of this country.

My challenge is the challenge of democracy as defined by God almighty, Each his brothers keeper, love thy neighbor as thyself these are divine instructions for governance. I Nana Frema Busia Have signed a covenant of righteousness with God inspired also by the ideals of democracy as encapsulated by my father Kofi Abrefa Busia in his books the challenge of Africa and Africa in search of Democracy. President Kufuor has failed in key areas of his portfolio particularly in Peace and Security, Corruption and Justice, compromised and shortchanged Ghana by a secret pact with the opposition.

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has been vindicated, we are in an autocracy of the corrupt, a one party state with colusion by the major parties NPP NDC and CPP. The upcoming election is a nullity and void ab initio. It is Francis Poku, the devil in a white shirt’s unaccountable budget that has been used to effect the purchase of the opposition, there is no effective opposition in Ghana, therefore there is no democracy, President Kufour has put Ghana’s national security in the hands of the CPP to complete the one party arrangements, There is a Parliamentary racket that has compromised treason and failed to initiate proceedings against President Kufuor who should have been impeached for condoning treason and Francis Poku’s blatant treachery a long time ago

Why did President Kufour set up a commission to pretend to be looking for missing cocaine when he knew it would not be found instead of firing the so called security Guru national blackmailer, Francis Poku on the spot. Why did it have to take the ‘accidental’ failure of his personal security under Francis Poku’s so called competence to sack him. The Presidents life is not more important than my life or my brother’s life. We all have equal rights to life.

CORRUPTION MANIA

Having won elections on a false zero tolerance for corruption mantra President Kufuor has failed to prosecute significant past corruption by the NDC. I know because I am the legal Counsel for the team who did forensic and diagnostic audits on NDC mega corruption nightmares including various SSNIT ventures, Ghana Airways and La Palm divestiture. President Jak has done selective prosecution to pacify the international community after which the judiciary pats the back of President Kufuor’s NDC pals with minimum sentences after which the opposition is up in arms. President Kufour then grants subsequent mind boggling pardons. How about Tsatsu Tsikata? Should he not be entitled to a Presidential pardon before the beleaguered President Leaves office in this farce of a democratic country?

President JAk grants pardons to free his own chains, seeking future reciprocity. Under President Kufuor corruption has been entrenched and institutionalized and has flourished, to a higher high, higher crimes by persons in high positions including cocaine trafficking is pardoned in secret corridors, President Kufuor has lost control of his government because of corruption as exemplified by cabinet and other ministers who run riot in a mind-boggling and sad parade to exude the rewards of corruption without shame in their bid for the Presidency undertaken on a national scale for internal flagbearership.

The self applause IS A CAMOUFLGE AND A Cover-Up President Kufuor is without integrity, The freedom and justice that is enshrined in Our national emblem is a sham, if there were justice and Peace in Ghana we would not have Dagbon, and Gushiegu and Bawku and Anloga which are the result of lack of truth and social injustices creating cyclical upheavals The justice system in this country is a failure enveloped in corruption. Corruption is sadly an irony of President Kufour’s zero tolerance politics and his downfall.

The role of Gender in politics and Sexual harassment as a Developmental hazard under Kufuor

With God as my help, I am launching simultaneously today, a ‘Women in motion’ movement to support my Presidential candidacy for the 2012 election to honour the deserving women of this country in whom God has a special call as exemplified in putting his holy spirit in our forbear, the Virgin Mary to deliver eternal salvation through his son Jesus Christ.

I am running for political office as a Protest candidate. I am protesting reckless disregard for national security, life threatening sexual harassment, high level corruption and political ineptitude at the heart of the presidency as well as disregard for rule of law and human rights including the right to life.

MY CRIMES For refusing to have illicit sex, for failing to become a ‘classified top secret’ ‘mistress of Francis Poku ,’ kept by state funds, for standing firm and upholding zero tolerance for corruption doctrine, for refusing to cooperate with Francis Poku to dupe Ghana of millions of dollars, specifically, for saying no to the offer of a national asset with Chinese interest on divestiture valued at twenty million US dollars, [$20m],which was to be funded by a loan from NIB, does this have a hotel Kufuor ring on a larger magnitude to it? for refusing to cooperate with siphoning moneys from the UNDP and the international donor community, for refusing offers to buy me a house, set me up in business, pay all my debt in the USA among other offers I have been deemed a national security threat who should be eliminated because I have declared a sexual & corruption ‘Intifada’ [resistance].

As punishment for my crime of sexual resistance among other severe sanctions I have never been paid by the government of Ghana for six years. My torturer ordered UNDP to stop salary support to my position as part of an assistance package to government of Ghana after one year of assistance, even though UNDP had undertaken a commitment to support my position for five years to implement a national action plan. Francis Poku said hell no . UNDP has complied. Well I do not obey masochist with absolute power egos. I am not available to be purchased at any price and I will not compromise my principles or shortchange the country to cold blooded greed and NATIONAL INSECURITY.

I am standing firm as an independent Protest candidate to protest inflows of arms and cocaine and upsurge in violent conflicts and armed robberies. Absence of coup detat does not constitute peace. WE are sitting at the crossroads of a potential violent implosion as we shout empty Peace slogans. In an election season where it has become fashionable for government functionaries to boast about maintenance of peace and security, as legal Counsel to National Security and Technical Advisor as well as the National Coordinator of the small arms commission with a Peace and security portfolio which includes systematic prevention of conflicts and armed violence and control of small arms, my offices from which I am barred as a punitive measure by this negative change Kufuor government as a punitive measure is idle while a five million dollar [US $ 5m] support from the European Union/UNDP which is the direct result of my work as well as a projected two million dollar support from the Japanese Human Security for interventions in our conflict zones such as Yendi, Bawku Anloga is not being implemented because I am the only active staff of the Ghana National Commission.

Consequently, Measures to curtail significant underground illicit production of arms including provision of alternative livelihoods have been abandoned and my life at risk because I refuse to have sex with powerful men at the Presidency. This is rather sickening; it certainly is mafia tactics and not the rule of law. It is as if jokers are in control of Ghana. Agyeman Manu now promoted to trade and Kan Dapaa now promoted to Defence physically changed the locks on my office and bared me from meetings which were run under my technical leadership. Initiatives I have participated in, in Sri Lanka, Brazil, and South Africa etc for local induction and innovations for interventions on arms control rendered redundant. Does this constitute rule of law and good governance and on course positive change.

President Kufuor should be impeached just for cooperating with closing down my offices because Francis Poku ordered it. The only thing being done at the small arms secretariat is an arms media database compilation which is an innovation I introduced. I am singularly responsible for the establishment of the small arms commission which President Kufuor administration was unable to establish after Francis Poku abolished the set up that had been put in place by the NDC.

In July 2005, I informed the Presidency in my capacity as Legal Counsel to National Security that Francis Poku posed a dangerous risk to the country and should be called to order. The then National Security Coordinator was rather promoted as a Minister and issued with a national award of the Order of the Volta. In 2003/2004 there were alarming arms inflows from the Cote D’Ivoire civil war and the Bukina border linking up with the Yendi crisis rendering the entire Northern sector volatile. This is a fact borne by research conducted under my joint oversight with Dr Kwasi Annin, now at the Kofi Annan Peace Institute and international Small Arms survey based in Geneva. Francis Poku refused to implement an emergency UN assisted border surveillance project which I had sourced for Ghana under my oversight because ‘Taflatse’ I refused to sleep with him and President Kufour could not do anything about this. Today we are seeing the results in Bawku, Gushiegu, Anloga &Yendi deadlock. Ghana is falling apart at the seams and inundated with illicit arms while we pay lip service to Peace.

To the Kufour Presidency the fact that I have worked as a Ghana Government representative with UNDP to source an approved US $ 32 million dollar [thirty two million dollars ]funding for ECOWAS MEANS I HAVE NOT WORKED and should not be paid unless I sleep with someone at the Presidency or in government or UNDP as my sponsor. I am not impressed by effusive self applause including gold chains around Presidential necks. I am not impressed because I know from my first hand knowledge of the Presidency that all that glitters is not Gold.

I live in a National Security residence under virtual house arrest, under security surveillance and ongoing political terror. When unleashed absolute terror which includes misuse of the security agencies including the BNI, CID, & national security insurgents was at its peak, I found myself under excessive and protracted life threatening stress near death in a US hospital with all my vital signs shutting down including loss of vision, cardiac function and mobility following attending a meeting at the UN General Assembly as Ghana’s lead technical Expert on arms control in 2006.

My panic stricken mother, has endured multiple hospitalizations as a consequence of ongoing Francis Poku engineered acute crisis in our lives and political onslaught with President Kufuor watching his spectator sport, torture. In a fragile state following my brother’s death, I had to take my mother outside the country in an emergency. The ‘ghost’ of Francis Poku’s unbridled power is still haunting us in this Busia/Danquah mirage government as President JAK refuses to abide by a negotiated ceasefire and stop the Francis Poku siege even now.

‘If I want to kill you I know torture tactics’ this is what was pronounced by the powerful sexual predator at the Presidency. With knowledge of my health crisis the torture was intensified to ensure my certain death. All entreaties over the past 4 years including solicited appeals by Otumfuo Osei Tutu, Chief Justice Georgina Wood, Rev Palmer Buckle, Arch Bishop Sarpong, Rev Adu Gyamfi, President Kufuors son Chief Kufuor, Prof Ken Atafua formerly of CHRAJ and Reconciliation Commission, Lawyer Appia Menka, and other party members as welll as Kofi Busia’s only surviving brother Nana Kusi Appiah as well as my mother have failed to resolve my life threatening siege. In desperation I also sought help from various media houses and personalities pleading that my life was in danger but they all looked the other way. Accompanied by a pastor I eventually made a recording at radio Gold to be played to the nation if I died unceremoniously. Francis Poku on my trail even though I take tro tro for safety called radio gold and warned against any publicity on my behalf.

My life was at risk because The national Security Secretariat under Francis Poku was involved in a desperate search to retrieve evidence of treason from me. I am the ultimate evidence that was to be eliminated to cover up official acts of treachery against the territorial integrity and security of this country by persons with a security portfolio who were acting contrary to national security interests. I was been deemed a threat who should be eliminated by a covet torture operation and permanently silenced because Francis Poku’s tactics are usually covet rather than overt. He is a super hero of covet operations.

In Jan 2007 I recommended to President Kufuor, Chief of staff, Mr. DK. Osei. And madam Ama Busia in the presence of my mother and my dead brother then alive that Francis Poku should be fired. I was told that I could not tell the Presidency what to do. I was also told that whatever I know about cocaine or Trasacco valley I should keep to myself because President JAK’s government does not know about any such matters. In Jan 2008 Francis Poku was sacked for no reason. Who knows what lurks behind the secret alleys of the Kufour Presidency.

It is as a part of severe sanctions authorized against me for criticizing his Excellency on the Dr. Richard Anane reappointment as amoral, that the EU/UNDP assisted five million dollar [US$5m] conflict / armed violence prevention & arms control project under my oversight is not being implemented with my offices at the Small Arms Commission Secretariat shut down with Presidential approval. It is Ghana that bears the ultimate brunt of this Presidential malice. This is a truly sordid affair. Well, President JAk, according to Kofi Busia from his book ‘ Africa in search of Democracy’ 1967 ‘ A basic tenet of democracy is that all men including party bosses and rulers are fallible and consequently, that there should be effective institution for the expression of criticism and for constitutional change of government. Also according to K A Busia according to KA Busia, ‘Democracy is a form of government, but it is base on ethics’ hence my criticism of his Excellency should be taken in good faith.

When in February 2008 the Ministry of Information issued an extraordinary 24 hour Ghana News Agency all points false radio bulletin and GTV Primetime broadcast that I have never worked for the government of Ghana, as if I were an absconding criminal, it was part of a systematic and desperate governmental effort to harass, intimidate and shock me into quiet submission and to tarnish my undisputed reputation by those without honor or integrity or concern for overriding national security interests.

President Kufuor has also sanctioned issuance of eviction notice from my official residence but His Excellency is still withholding six years of my cumulative salary after the Presidency relocated me from California after 20 years abroad. This is my current dilemma, When something untoward happens to me while living under National Security roof where I am unsafe President JAk who is head of national security will have to answer to the public so I refuse to abide by their ‘Patriot games’. Where does President Kufuor want me to go? Exile, like my father Kofi Busia? I am already in Preventive detention.

A snapshot of Solitary Confinement When my official residence almost burnt down the CID failed to show up to collect evidence. With my plea for life to the President ignored, and a refusal by the Parliamentary Select Committee on Defense and Interior to investigate my petition against Francis Poku also ignored this is what happened to persons who attempted to help me. A member of Parliament to whom I had given documents to assist with initiating a parliamentary inquiry reported armed robbers at his residence and abandoned the requested help.

Both the majority and The opposition in parliament sold my petition against Francis Poku and my plea for life to Francis Poku who initiated a reverse criminal investigation against me to torture me further at a time when I had been so ill that I could not walk or talk properly and had experienced momentary blindness due to Francis Poku’s torture. It is Francis Poku’s fabrication of an alibi for himself that what Kweku Baako's crusading Guide published as ‘Francis Poku has been cleared by BNI ’ That honestly is a silly trick.

How can Francis Poku clear himself of charges before parliament and CHRAJ. What is absolutely clear is that Francis Poku has not been cleared. That BNI report rather constitutes an attempt by Francis Poku to unsuccessfully blackmail me into silence. How can Francis Poku clear himself of matters pending before Parliament and CHRAJ? l was left adrift to die in my residence after my resident national security watchman was recalled and my police bodyguard following intimidation by the BNI vacated his post unceremoniously claiming boredom. The stage was set for whatever devious plot the master schemer who boasts torture credentials deemed fit to be executed.

The pastor who accompanied me to a radio Gold to make the recording for publication in case I died under suspicious circumstances having been picked up by the criminal surveillance I was under, was at a subsequent prayer visit chased around by two surveillance patrol vehicles detailed at the corner of my house to show where power lies. A colleague on the small arms commission for apparently visiting me on one occasion and a couple phone calls on my bugged phoned to check up on me had a Francis Poku bogus security report prepared against him that he was staging a coup detat. In my opinion Francis Poku needs serious psychiatric attention. The pastor who took me to radio Gold at a subsequent visit was involved a freak accident with my own brother Pastor Maurice and 3 other pastors in a freak accident the day before the President’s own accident. Because of corruption 4 unconscious Pastors were condemned to die at 37 military hospital. Because of corruption a medical doctor at Okomfo Anokye, a doctor tore up a court ordered autopsy document and failed to perform the autopsy. This is Ghana.

In a mind boggling waste of public resources and abuse of power a multi agency team comprising BNI, CID & National security agents who should have been looking for lost cocaine were ordered to institute a criminal investigation to falsify charges so that I can be put in jail.

My only crime was refusal to have sex with their boss. The best they could come up with after one year of investigations was that my request for salary which has been withheld for six years as part of my torture package constitutes blackmail. Ben Ephson's & Kweku Baako were the Francis Poku agents who publicized the Nana frema Busia is blackmailing ministers initiative. Francis Poku’s own newspaper published Ben Ephsons blasphemous and defamatory effusions on Adom FM under a caption ‘Busia’s daughter blacklisted for blackmail’ when they were the ones covering up Francis Poku’s blackmail in a preemptive sick strike. These so award winning investigative journalists who are holding Ghana hostage with incredulity never spoke to me, during their so called investigations.

I am running for political office as an independent candidate because I do not believe that a woman with my professional and political pedigree, my knowledge, skills and expertise, including some 20 years of international legal experience, technical expertise in peace and security, corporate and political governance and eligibility to the Ghana supreme court as well as my contribution to Ghana and sub regional security for ECOWAS small arms control initiatives should sit at home and do nothing while President Kufuor denounces my work and simultaneously take personal credit for my work at international and local level.

Indeed no one regardless of credentials should be subject to a death warrant for upholding ethical principles. Sex should never be an unwritten requirement for a job. I am speaking out against sexual oppression and subjugation of human rights by unaccountable men in positions of power. I am proposing a Professional violence & emporwerment bill in addition to the Domestic Violence Bill. I am proposing a national call to moral and ethical order.

I am running as an independent candidate to launch a moral crusade and to Protest the fact that religious and moral education has been taken off the school curriculum, significant numbers of our youth are unemployed and addicted to hard drugs. We are wallowing in filth and environmental degradation while refuse collection has become a monopoly of one company that does not have the capacity to undertake this effectively nationwide. Corruption has seeped from our Presidency to our market places from t governmental machinery, and both the public and private sector to our class rooms. Our value systems have broken down. We pride ourselves on complacency while sitting on a potential implosion without moral or inspired leadership and certainly without vision. We are the ‘fa wo ho di Ghana’. A nation gone scot free, a society without sanctions for wrongdoing, this is our national interpretation of independence, a nation that celebrates 51 years of lack of accountability.

I am running as an independent Protest candidate to denouncing sexual harassment to the point of death, the rape of national assets and use of women as kickbacks as a national tragedy which is killing the soul of women all over Ghana and thwarting national development. I am protesting unethical, amoral and lawless conduct and lack of accountability at the presidency and in government as well as in the public and private sectors. I am protesting abuse of state power, moral poverty and injustice.

I am challenging all flag bearers and political parties in particular Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo an acclaimed Busiast, and human rights and justice advocate and the NPP to support my independent candidacy as MP for Manyhia to show abhorrence of this Kufour administration inhumane governance mishap. I am also challenging all political parties to propose policies to deal with sexual harassment which is a widespread national tragedy holding Ghanaian womanhood hostage and under sexual bondage. Indeed I am challenging the NPP, NDC and the CPP to publicly support my candidacy in Manyhia. I am challenging the women caucuses of all the parties and daring the NPP women’s caucuses to openly support my candidacy at Manhyia. Is the Busia in Busia Danquah a sham?

All over Ghana, womanhood is in crisis, under siege to the sexual whims of unscrupulous men in positions of power both in government and industry parading as honorable men without honor. Women are suffering in silence afraid of the repercussions of speaking up. The issue of sexual harassment should be put on the national agenda. This why I am inviting women’s activists and institutions church groups etc including federation of women lawyers, my class mate Gifty Afenyi Dadzie on the council of state and her Aglow women, democracy and human rights institutes and activists including Nana Oye Lithur, Audrey Gadgepo, Rose Mensa Kutin, Madam Dwamena Edna Kuma etc CDD and IEA to all support and comment on this story to move Ghana forward

In a true democracy where women are accepted as equal partners in development, no woman should lose their job for refusing to have sex with any man regardless of who they may be. I am running as an independent protest candidate to provide exemplary leadership, to advocate the release of women from the sexual prisons and oppression in the professional arena, as well as in provision of social services, in the award of contracts as well as in the educational institutions –etc. I am protesting the criminal demand for sex and use of women as kickbacks as an incidence of pervasive corruption that prevents women from effective contribution as a significant national resource.

Integral to Ghana’s national developmental security should be the policy that everywoman everywhere in Ghana should have sexual security within the confines of her own body. Certainly the security of this country should not be compromised because of sexual predators and sociopaths in positions of power. I am proposing a national call to moral and ethical order. I am anticipating the support of all the decent men in Ghana who are the bedrock of integrated existence to play their rightful God assigned role by supporting me and all the women in this country whose daily sweat and toil contribute immensely to our economic and family lives, those who believe Ghana is not ready for a woman President are simply wrong . According to Kofi Busia in a speech delivered on the first day in Parliament on 6th March 1957 “ It is by the devoted day to day service of many ordinary and unnoticed citizens that a nation achieves greatness’ the overwhelming majority of those unnoticed citizens are women . Thank you.

This is why I urge the people of Manhyia to be at the forefront of national development to send a powerful message to all of Ghana by saying that we value our women, our mothers, wives, sisters and daughters. In Ghana we do not abuse women who contribute to national development by rendering them destitute, homeless and jobless. In a modern era a woman’s place is where God intended her as helpmates not a sex slaves to unaccountable men with unaccountable budgets.

I am a daughter of Manhyia. I belong to the distinguished household of Akyempemhene Konkoni Osei TUTU otherwise known as Palace Gate. Kofi Busia’s support by Manhyia which propelled him into national significance has its roots in his marriage to my mother, she who is without blemish a Manhyia royal with links to the Golden stool. It is exile that forced a divorce. The Busia foundation that does not know who Kofi Busia is does much discredit to my father’s life and legacy by peddling a 4 children falsehood. Poor Kofi Busia there is no internal democracy even where his children are concerned, we have modern day apartheid.

I have gone home to my roots, to Manhyia to seek the Justice that has eluded me in President Kufour’s government. All eyes should be on Manhyia, tongue in cheek Manhyia does not belong to the Presidents household Apagyafie that has manipulated another candidate on the NPP ticket. I really rather think that Ghana currently really need the fine young man's skills as a medical doctor. I took my mum to Okomfo Anokye hospital recently and we were there for 9 hours. Health delivery service in this country certainly require all hands on deck by available doctors. What happens in Manhyia will tell us about who we are as a nation.

A Brief Look at Manyhia Manhyia has pivotal unquestionable support for the UP tradition and the Kumasi metropolis has seen negligible positive change after 8 years of Kufour administration and 12 years of Addo Kufour as MP . Manhyia lacks basic infrastructure with parts of Manhyia constituency wholly bypassed by development. The uncompleted Community Centre by a Public toilet which transmits stench at the heart of Ashtown is a nightmare.

The heart of Manhyia is in sanitation and health complacency. Sanitation is a critical issue in the whole of Ghana and is demonstrative of failure of decentralization by successive governments. Perennial blackouts and increasing and severe water shortages in Manhyia constituency is part of every day life. The Kufuor administration which boasts of foreign investments that flow from the President’s travels have failed because of corruption. The golden age of business government could not create the enabling environment for local and or joint partnership to re open the tanning factory, the jute factory or the shoe factory in kumasi which has their core support. The promised Vehicle assembly plant has not materialized. To me, the inflows of investment figures are fictitious. The Accra Kumasi dual carriageway has become a single carriageway to be completed by 2004 is still under construction .

Those who went to Odododiodio to demonstrate political decadence ‘I and my father are one’ with the son of a late NDC MP do not know who Kofi Busia is or what he stands for. I want my father’s name and image disassociated from the NPP If the rhetoric about entrenchment of democracy, human rights, rule of law and women’s emancipation are a mere charade. I do not want unscrupulous politicians to use my father Kofi Busia’s name and image in vain just for political expediency.

I am not standing in opposition to the UP tradition which the NPP claims as its roots in Manhyia. I wish to affirm that tradition which is my bloodline and challenge its proponents to uphold a gold standard of democratic excellence. Again I am not talking about undeserving effusive self awarded gold chains of contention. That kind of showy glitter is designed to cover up dirt. It is unconvincing. It is also a waste of our meager national resources.

I am standing as an independent candidate to offer genuine choice to the UP tradition which is my political pedigree. I am standing firm for truth and for true democracy The ideals of that tradition as exemplified by Kofi Busia supersedes and transcends the secret misdeeds of the Kufuor Presidency. According to Kofi Busia from a paper ‘Is Democracy of Universal application’ published in 1979. ‘ Experience has shown that there should be procedures and institutions which enable voters to give free and fair expression to their will and that there should be genuine choice’. I am offering genuine choice to the Up tradition in Manhyia.

Freedom and Justice When President Jak leaves office I shall breathe freedom. I shall seek the justice that is enshrined in our national emblem and national conscience. I shall subpoena the then former President whose mantra included ‘produce the evidence’ to produce my documents’. I shall subpoena the then former President Jak to testify to his personal ratification of my appointment and agreement to pay all my salary arrears as of Jan 2007 which he has reneged upon. I will call on President Jak to defend his democratic credentials. I shall seek that the President be held to account with regard to his stewardship of national security and zero tolerance for corruption. In fact all of us as a nation, individually and collectively should be held to account. . AS others have been reconciled I should want an open, transparent public process when a new government is constituted with President Kufuor producing my documents which he has ceased

I shall call on the new administrating to return my asset of 6 years of withheld cumulative salary as punishment for upholding my dignity under governmental siege and pay appropriate compensation for unlawful termination as well as compensation for deliberate application of persistent and protracted, emotional, psychological abuse a designed to kill as well as financial constriction. Reconciliation should be conducted at the end of every political era to right ongoing injustices.

I am running as an independent Protest candidate to lead a movement to activate democratic ideals even as I make a call for socio–political justice and developmental security through foundational and attitudinal change. When giving the opportunity I shall exemplify and demonstrate the Busia Component of Busia Danquah tradition so help me God. I shall challenge a government of ethical values and principles and for fundamental change in social, moral and attitudinal change to move Ghana forward. My guiding principle is a quote from my dad ‘ ‘ Let me say that if you are going out and have not the compelling urge inside you to make something better, to improve some situation or condition, then you really are not living and will not make much of a mark in this world and you will not be missed when you leave it’

I am standing as a protest candidate. On election day, December 7, 2008, I want the one hundred and ten thousand registered or so voters of Manhyia to witness my protest on their ballot. I am sorry that I was unable to stand as a Presidential candidate due to my brothers death and onerous logistical requirements. I do not believe in political hierarchies or first come first served. Look what Pres Bush has done to the USA and the world. I believe in merit, talent and the purpose of God in one’s life.

How can politicians ask the electorate to take election handouts and vote their conscience when the conscience is compromised and polluted by those very handouts. All the parties are engaged in election rigging by vote buying so when the highest bidder wins we should all peacefully abide by the results because we all participated in the rigging with complicity of the electorate who get their comeuppance at this ‘cocoa season

I am calling on all God fearing and decent Ghanaians regardless of their political color to support my protest and call for justice I am calling on all democracy and human rights as well as peace and security institutes, international development agencies, women’s groups and activist to support my search for true democracy and for justice and my right to life.

As a member of Parliament I shalI challenge the status quo, invigorate our young people, be a role model for our girl children and boys, liaise with descent Ghanaians, particularly men, to do awareness & education campaign on sexual maturity for undeserving ‘bad boys’ in men’s suits who find themselves in positions of power and abuse it. Sexual harassment is a crime and should not be condoned by a Parliament of honorable men. It is not Nana Frema Busia, a distinguished woman who has humbly and quietly served this country with excellence in both the local and international arena who should be condemned to death but the dangerous criminal who has been let loose in the UK to continue dubious activates.

I shall demonstrate with excellence and integrity, synonymous with the Busia name which is being exploited by politicians, so called Busiast who have no iota of comprehension about what Kofi Busia stands for. My challenge is the challenge of democracy

I am ignoring President Kufuor and his conflicted Attorney Generals order that I vacate my official residence which cost 30,0000 dollars a year of tax payer money so that they can cover it up. The order shows incompetence by the Attorney General. It is also unconstitutional in light of the pending CHRAJ Whistle Blower Action

We certainly have not built a solid foundation otherwise so unless we take corrective action the next the next level of higher high will collapse on us.

We the people fail to understand that the politicians will go back and raid national coffers which translates to sub standard execution of projects and lack of real development and spiritual and economic poverty. I am afraid of freebies. Free education is meaningless if it is sub standard. Free school feeding is meaningless if it is sub standard. National health is meaningless if it is sub standard. I am advocating world class qualitative standards not a black African standard for which basic or mundane performance of national duty is falsely deemed an achievement.

I am Protesting the single obvious failing of the Kufuor administration., upsurge in perception and reality of corruption, moral degradation and lack of visionary leadership. This is not the progress that was envisioned for Ghana by my father. These are developmental hazards. When President JAK intoned Zero tolerance for corruption he did not tell the truth. Office of accountability is a sham otherwise he would have held Francis Poku accountable and not given him safe passage. Whistle blower act Procurement act freedom of information act are all not worth the paper they are written on unless we have the political commitment in truth, in freedom and in justice to implement them. This election is a nullity. Perhaps the electoral commission that also has some corrupt staff, just a Ghanaian thing should postpone the elections.

No one should attempt to do a ‘Yendi’ on me. I am protected by the Holy Spirit. NDC says it is the NPP that killed and NPP says it is the NDC that killed to make it seem like it is the NDC. Whatever. We are a nation of killers. We have shed blood. WE do not know who really killed the women that former Pres JJ said were killed by NPP. We also do not know who killed at Yendi. WE know former Heads of state were killed by firing squad in the name of the nation. Ghana is embroiled in bloodshed. Ghana must atone for sin of bloodshed in true repentance for God’s salvation. I thank God for the test of fire. I have forgiven every one involved by God’s Grace. I am ready to do God’s work. What about you?

I have already been through the valley of the shadow of death, so I DO NOT FEAR the oncoming POLITICAL EVIL from either side of politricks. I intend, God willing to hold a press conference in Kumasi and a prayer rally where I will outline a program for Manhyia/Ghana and also give details of the specifics of torture and pray for national revival for God to select our next leaders no matter how imperfect and bless and wash them in his blood to be great leaders of national transformation. I have devoted this initial launch to substantive matters of nationhood and national interest. I am truly sorry that this day has come. I have tried to cover this matter up for six year because of its potential for chaos. I am now living on my last reserves of energy buoyed up by God’s amazing grace and living power which I have experienced in a very personal way. I am however truly exhausted. I thank God for his amazing miracle for giving me this experience as a testimony . I sincerely believe that we can all change our non selfless ways as we continue our exciting journey of nation building. I am ready to serve Ghana and intone a call to action Will you join hands with me.

Please understand that integral to this address is a national plea for sanity in national affairs.. In a different era the Kweku Baako’s, Haruna Atta’s and Ben Ephsons of this world would have risked going to jail under criminal libel to publish this conundrum while Under President JAK,s democracy? It is by not holding President JAK to appropriate scrutiny and accountability that he has been doomed. Finally I challenge the Crusading Guide, Accra Mail, the Statesman, Daily Graphic and Ghanaian times, Ben Ephson as well as a Peace Fm/affiliates to publish this statement in its entirety and GTV to provide full news coverage of it because I want to see democracy and free press at work in Ghana.

I have ‘shot’ ideas at President Kufour and all the major political parties because according to Kofi Busia in a statement at the national Assembly on 10th December, 1970, ‘I personally believe that Ideas are more powerful than guns. This is why I will have some of my supporters at Manhyia in T-shirts advocating arms control. Perhaps the Committee for joint Action will lead my protest for Justice? How could President Kufour ground someone with my kind of intellect while appointing no brainers as ministers. This is just a rhetorical question. President Kufour should certainly remove the monstrous statue at 37 military circle that diminishes my father's stature and put former Nigerian President Obasanjo's statue there to complete the Obasanjo way.

President Kufuor should also address the nation to answer all the issues I have raised and explain his actions and inactions in national security, as President he is commander in chief of the army and head of national security. On Election Day God Almighty wants all voters to look into the eyes of God which is encased in a star of hope that is watching them [my symbol] they should also know that the Holy Spirit lives in them and knows if they are voting the money they received. After voting everyone should be able to say ‘it is well with my soul’. The next election is about redeeming the soul of Ghana.

God is doing a new thing in Ghana, because the men have abused their power and become the tail and not the head, God is going to use women in a very special way WITH THE SUPPORT OF GENUINE GODLY MEN. This is why with God’s help I intend to found and lead a new political party, a Revived Progress Party {RPP} for ALL God fearing People which is over 90% of Ghanaians. All regardless of current political color are invited.

I must end absolutely by quoting and adopting a quote from Dr K A Busia in a letter he wrote on 29th December 1946 to Rev Whittle” God has not finished his work yet and I wonder which the next scenes in that miracle play will be and how it will end’ I believe that Kofi Busia has a gem of ideas that Ghana need to recover as we continue our search of democracy.. I thank you sincerely. Ghana Behold, the national black mailer. I am ready for crucifixion !

The Run Nana frema Busia run campaign seeks prayer, financial and logistical support from the Ghanaian Diaspora as well as local support. I am seeking pastors for prayer rally. Will announce mobile numbers for contribution to campaign and support to pay withheld salary. To pledge support or comment please send email to [email protected] or [email protected] Every woman anywhere in the world who has experienced sexual harassment regardless of age should contact me
