Kofi Wayo: Arrest Nana Akufo Addo

Chuck Charles Kofi Wayo, founder and leader of the United Renaissance Party (URP), has ordered the immediate arrest of Nana Akufo-Addo, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential Candidate, for his “All Die Be Die” comment.

He argues that anybody who beats war drums in any form must be arrested. “In any decent country where we know there are ethnic problems - anybody who advocates violence must be arrested - as simple as that,” he added.

The free-talker who was dismayed by Nana Akufo-Addo’s supposed call to violence, noted that he should be arrested because his comments has noting to do with the tenets of democracy. You should arrest him, this is no democracy, you are telling people to go and kill themselves for politics, what kind of politics is that? Is that politics or savagery? Politics has nothing to do with violence,” Mr. Wayo stated.

He believes that Nana Akufo Addo has no right whatsoever going round to incite people to be violent, saying “Akufo-Addo can’t go round saying all Die Be Die and the government is sitting down: if Atta Mills is not prepared to act then we will advise ourselves…You have to defend the Ghanaian, Ghanaians deserve some defence.”

‘Chuck’ Kofi Wayo, sharing his views on a wide range of national issues on an Accra-based radio station yesterday, insisted that Ghanaians would not allow such divisive sentiments to thrive in the country anymore.

“We can’t allow this alleged drug crazy guy to be talking all this crap to the people saying he wanna (want to) be president…what kind of democracy is this? We can’t take it anymore,” he ranted. The founder and leader of the URP indicated that those calling for violence in the 2012 elections are people who could sneak out of the country if they succeeded.

“First you heard him (Nana Akufo-Addo) say all die be die, you heard Jake also, these are people who have children overseas so they don’t mind killing Ghanaians,” he added. According to him, the NPP have embarked on this tactics because “They believe (President) Atta Mills is weak – that is why they are doing that…he got to show some whips like we say in the US.”
