The National Chairman of the United Front Party (UFP), Nana Agyenim Boateng aka Gyataba has counseled the 2012 presidential candidate of his party, Akwasi Addai Odike, to repent and seek the face of God.
According to him, Mr. Odike has embarrassed himself as a former presidential candidate for invoking "Antoa" curses on the Kumasi mayor and the paramount chief of Asokwa.
Speaking to HELLO FM's King Edward, he explained that it is not the decision of the party to disrespect traditional authorities and that the party has disassociated itself from what the former flagbearer of the party did.
Nana Agyenim Boateng added that the party has respect for traditional authorities and we condemn in no uncertain terms the actions of the party's former flagbearer.
Let me remind you that Odike has been suspended and that by the latest conviction at the Asantehemaa's council for invoking curses, he cannot stand again for the 2016 elections and beyond, he disclosed.
Odike is a staunch Christian, and I believe that if he seeks the face of God, the Almighty God will save him, he added.
