Source: The Informer
Akufo-Addo Promises Him
Chairman Of Council Of State!!!
Wonders; they say, shall never cease! Indeed, wonders shall never cease!!!
When the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, decides to be the chief ventriloquist of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and purporting to be speaking out of divine inspiration, it is because he has been promised a seat at ‘the table’.
The Informer’s deep lenses have touched the inner-sanctums of the NPP, and is reporting without any equivocation that, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Professor Martey, is prepared to do the bidding of the NPP in particular reference to his unguarded comments about the Electoral Commission’s creation of 45 new constituencies, because, he has been promised a position of Chairman of the Council of State, in the unlikely event that Akufo-Addo becomes President of Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana.
A loud-mouthed member of Akufo-Addo’s Akyem kitchen-cabinet let out the vital information, not knowing that he was speaking to one of The Informer’s roving scouts.
Boasting about how Akufo-Addo is desperately seeking power “at all cost” and so making all kinds of gargantuan promises to certain persons, the NPP-insider said Professor Martey is doing what he is doing because of what he has been promised.
In as much as The Informer cannot confirm whether the Presby Moderator has been given any such promise, this paper is not prepared to dismiss the information picked up.
According to the bragging Akufo-Addo kitchen-cabinet member, now that His Excellency President Atta Mill is no more alive; and it is looking likely that Akufo-Addo can breast the tape, the NPP flagbearer is prepared to make all kinds of promises and pledges in order to become President.
“Just as Nana is promising free SHS when he knows that it is not possible, he is prepared to make all kinds of promises to certain influential persons, just to bait them into to helping the NPP with its propaganda”; the bragging source said.
“When Kufuor was campaigning in 2000, he used the same tactics and got the clergy to support him; and so Nana is also adopting the same tactics”, the source added.
Indeed, it would be recalled that when Kufuor took over the reins of government and wanted to impose his suffocating HIPC policies on Ghanaians, he called some men of God to the Castle, and paid them to be the disciples of his wicked policies.
For a fact, the then moderator of the Presbyterian Church, was the chief apostle, who called on Ghanaians to accept the hardship that Kufuor was imposing on them.
“In 2008, we tried to get the clergy on our side by throwing out false information that if the NDC wins, some men-of-God would be killed. Unfortunately for us, that propaganda did not work, and the NDC won”; the source intimated.
The bragging Akufo-Addo Akyem relative said, the NDC should be prepared for more of such comments from a section of the clergy, because Nana is really making huge promises to them.
“We are desperate to have control of the oil revenue and we will leave no stone unturned in our bid to win this year’s election”, the source blurted.
As mentioned earlier, The Informer is not too sure, if the source was bragging or telling the truth; but since history is replete with men-of-God using their pulpits to play nauseating politics for personal gain, and not because it is the wish of God, it would not be surprising when it becomes a fact that some promise has been made which is why Professor Martey and his insulting PRO, have decided to be the chief propagandists for the NPP.
