I will walk to Accra from Sunyani - Abronye DC

Maverick Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, known in political circles as Abronye DC has declared his intention to walk from Sunyani to Accra following the nomination of Mr. Martin ABK Amidu by President Akufo Addo as Independent Special Prosecutor.

The walk according to him is to make known his level of excitement at the nomination and also show his personal appreciation to the President for the appointment.

“In my estimation, when I come to Accra with a car to thank the President, it may not be pleasing enough so I have decided to walk from Sunyani to Accra even if it will take me one whole month to reach Accra and put my hands into that of the President’s and thank him, for what you [President] have done”, he said.

Abronye DC told Adom FM’s Kofi Adoma Nwanwani on Dwaso Nsem that he would start the walk on Monday January 15 even though he has what it takes to pay for transport but he wants to experience some discomfort in the lead up to conveying his appreciations to the President.

He has also rated the decision to nominate Mr. Amidu as the ISP as one which has surpassed popular policies such as Free SHS and the Ministry of Energy’s efforts in putting an end to Ghana’s power problems.

He explained that the appointment of a SP goes beyond partisan considerations, noting that even though Mr. Amidu is a founding member of the opposition National Democratic Congress and a member of its National Council of Elders, it is his qualification and competence that matters.

He has called on Ghanaians from all sectors of the society to refrain from acts such as pleadings on behalf of suspected criminals or even the stealing of dockets built for the prosecution cases.

“Allow him to prosecute all cases to their logical conclusions because by the nature of Martin Amidu, any interference will see him walk out of the job and that will be an indictment on the appointing authority.
