Akufo-Addo stranded at Dambai river; NPP smells sabotage

The NPP campaign team left stranded at the bank of Dambai river. The NPP campaign team left stranded at the bank of Dambai river.

The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo and his campaign team have been left stranded at the Dambai river banks.

According to Starr News’ Volta regional correspondent Lambert Atsivor, the only ferry on the river is stacked at the other end of the river.

He said information from the ferry operators suggested a truck which was moving onto the ferry skidded and partially plunged into the river, making it impossible for the ferry to move, unless the truck is towed.

However, some NPP officials are suspecting a sabotage on the part of the Volta regional minister Helen Ntoso who is also MP for Krachi West.

Nana Addo was scheduled to move to the Krachi Nchumuru and Krachi West constituencies today to continue with his campaign.

Speaking to Starr News, the regional vice chairman of the NPP Dr. Archibald Letsa said the campaign team is “behind schedule” but remains undaunted with the development.

“We don’t know what is going on because this is not the first time. It happened to Kufuor in 1996 and happened to us in 2012,” Dr. Letsa opined.

According to him, they are “disappointed” but assured that “although we are held back we’ll make it.”
