As Roads To His Palace Were Blocked To President Mahama’s Visit
News Desk Report
In politics when people are chosen as leaders, words which come out of their mouths are regarded as authority; and that is why the NPP flagbearer’s “all-die-be-die” mantra, has been taken seriously by many NPP supporters and his own Chief, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin.
Over the weekend, when His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama was in the Eastern Region as part of his campaign tour, and had wanted to pay a courtesy call on Okyehene (as has always been, a traditional practice) , the youth and attendants of the Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, emboldened by Nana Akufo Addo’s “all-die-be-die”, blocked all roads leading to the Okyehene’s palace.
Credible information available to The Informer Indicates that these roads blocks could not have been put up without the knowledge of Okyehene’s personal aides.
When eventually President Mahama met Okyehene, he made a very valid point which we will like to repeat for all well-meaning Ghanaians to take note.
The President said “the NPP’s candidate has been in my hometown, Bole; and nothing like that happened”.
The Informer rests its case but is convinced that Ghanaians are very discerning and can make their own judgments.
