Akufo-Addo government not of God – Kwaku Boahen

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s presidency is not ordained by God hence the numerous challenges bedeviling the country, Kwaku Boahen, Deputy National Communications Director of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said.

According to him, it has been revealed to some men of God that something went wrong in the spiritual realm which led to the electoral victory of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in last year’s polls, hence the mysterious deaths that plagued the country soon after Mr Akufo-Addo was sworn into office.

The NPP won last year’s polls with Mr Akufo-Addo garnering 53.85 per cent of the valid votes cast to become Ghana’s fifth president in the fourth republic.

Then-president John Mahama, who ran on the ticket of the NDC, secured 44.40 per cent of valid votes cast making him the first incumbent to lose an election since Ghana returned to multi-party democracy in 1992.

But speaking on Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM hosted by Chief Jerry Forson on Wednesday August 9 2017, Mr Boahen said: “Clearly, from all the problems that are happening under this government, the presidency of Akufo-Addo was not ordained by God.

“Some men of God including Prophet Badu Kobi (founder and leader of the Glorious Wave Church) have said something went wrong during the elections and that this government is not from God.

“Look at how people mysteriously committed suicides throughout the country, look at the numerous challenges facing the economy, certainly one can say that this government is not from God.”
