Akufo-Addo not corrupt – Tafo chief

The chief of Tafo, Nana Agyen Frimpong II, has defended the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), stating that the three-time presidential candidate is not corrupt.

“I know Nana Akufo-Addo. He is not corrupt, and he eschews all forms of corrupt practices. If there is any truth in voting, then God will glorify Himself in this year’s election,” he noted.

Nana Frimpong II made this known on Friday, October 21, 2016, when Mr Akufo-Addo paid a courtesy call on him, as part of the NPP flag bearer’s campaign tour of the Old Tafo constituency.

The chief of Tafo, in his brief remarks, also expressed worry about the fact that “voters, who are in a hurry to cast their ballot end up voting wrongly,” advising: “So I am urging my people to take their time and vote wisely in this year’s elections. No one should waste his vote.”

On the lack of economic activity in his town, Nana Frimpong II noted that institutions like the Kumasi Wesley College, Suame Magazine, amongst others, which are all situated on Tafo stool lands, are not under the oversight control of the Tafo stool.

“The only notable thing here, which is still within our control, is the Tafo cemetery. Nana, when you win, I want you to help elevate Tafo. This town can no longer be classified, even as a municipality. Tafo is now a sub-metropolis. When Tafo is elevated, Ghana will also be elevated,” he said.

To this end, Nana Frimpong II urged the NPP flag bearer to site ventures which will create economic activity within the town, and also create jobs for the teeming masses of unemployed youth in Old Tafo if he wins the December election.

“Our prayer is for God to elect a president who is coming to work for all Ghanaians, so we can get peace. We will pray for you, so God and our ancestors grant you victory in this year’s elections,” the Tafo chief concluded.
