London, United Kingdom – The NDC Youth Wing in the United Kingdom and Ireland are getting very suspicious of Nana Akuffo Addo’s terminal behaviour of not answering simple questions relating to his persona.
We cannot accept any of the presidential candidates supplying us with dud curriculum vitas.Afterall they must be honest to have the exclusive right to be crowned with the "Grand Order of the Star and Eagles of Ghana" otherwise it will be a “A Grand Order of the Star of Deception”. We are also shocked to see how much efforts are being made by Nana Akuffo Addo and the NPP campaign team to demonise President Rawlings and his family. We say it is all futile, President Rawlings, his wife and all Ghanaians have the right to comment on all national issues at any time.
In a statement attributed to the Spokesperson for NPP Flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo, Mustapha Hamid, captioned 'Mrs Rawlings does not understand how one becomes a lawyer' we were expecting Nana and his team to tell us the various ways by which one can qualify to be a lawyer and what path Nana Akuffo Addo took to become one. It rather shows is Nana and his Campaign team do not understand how to become a Lawyer , some of us NDC Youth in the UK are either lawyers or are in the process of becoming lawyers. We are confident that Mrs Rawlings fully understands how one becomes a Lawyer. How come Akuffo-Addo’s spokesperson is trying to question her knowledge about how one become a Lawyer? It is now the turn of Nana Akuffo Addo to prove he knows what it takes to become a lawyer. Why is Akuffo-Addo’s team turning the question upside down instead of telling us what path Akuffo-Addo took to become a Lawyer?
Instead of wasting their time insulting Mrs Rawlings, we are telling Nana Akuffo addo and all his supporters to do the following simple things:
1. Publish the name of the recognised school/institution from which he obtained his law degree. This could be in the form of a certificate. Even if the original certificate is missing the institution could provide him with a copy.
2. Confirm exactly what his role was at Coudert Fréres (Brothers), “a major US law firm,” at their Paris office.
3. As for him being called to the Bar in Ghana or elsewhere, we will investigate that when the authenticity of his published certificates are determined.
We believe once the above points are fully addressed by Nana and his supporters the whole world will know the path Nana Akuffo-Addo took to become a Lawyer. God Bless our homeland Ghana.
