Volta Chiefs disown Akufo-Addo as Chief of Staff hits the area

The acting President of the Peki tradional area Torgbey Ayim Mordey has debunked reports making the rounds in some media circles to the effect that Chiefs of Peki in the Volta region had endorsed the standard bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo Addo.

He said the Chiefs of his traditional area did not endorse the NPP flagbearer.

It will be recalled  that some pro NPP media houses circulated stories to the effect that the Chiefs of Peki have endorsed the presidential candidate of the NPP during his tour of the region recently.

The revere Adontehene of the Peki stare  said "no such thing happened  hence the individual who concocted the story will be called and sanctioned."

Togbe Ayim Mordey VI made this known when he addressed a Durbar of Chiefs and people of South Dayi @ Peki Tsame when the Chief of Staff took his campaign tour to the area.

The Chief of staff is criss crossing the country canvassing for votes for President Mahama's re election. He had so far visited the Upper West region, Brong  Ahafo and currently in the Volta region to give the Chiefs and people hope and the reason to maintain President John Dramani Mahama for a second term.

He said his outfit is doing everything possible to punish those behind the concocted story which was aimed at lowering the credibility of the Chiefs in the eyes of the  right thinking members of the Ghanaian society.

"In fact, I wish to take this opportunity to let people understand that no Chief in Peki here endorsed Nana Akufo Addo. The individuals involved in hatching this idea to create confusion are  going to be called and sanctioned for their misconduct. So I want to make you understand that there was no such endorsement by Peki chiefs," the Chief said.
