Is Nana Akufo Addo Indeed Sued by Some NDC Vermin?

Where have I been all this while, without taking on the NDC vermin that have embarked on schemes intended to tarnish the reputation of Nana Akufo Addo, my modern-day biblical Joseph or David? Probably, I have been too much involved in the Kumawuman chieftaincy affairs hence not noticing how maliciously some people within the NDC fold are plotting to blemish the integrity of Nana Akufo Addo.

I am noted for not treating fools kindly. Therefore, I will not hesitate to take on the following alleged plaintiffs, Alex Doe and George Spencer Quaye from the pressure group called Inside Ghana. These two individuals have filed a case "at an Accra High Court on Wednesday April 8, 2015 in an effort to have Mr Akufo-Addo pay Ghc798, 000 for the 19 months that he used the two state vehicles after leaving office in 2007 to pursue his presidential ambition. They are also praying the Court to declare Mr Akufo-Addo unfit to run for president by dint of his action", a publication on Ghanaweb. Com alleges. Their lawyer has issued a writ against Nana Akufo Addo.

I am happy to learn that some people are now showing interests in preventing the abuse of power and misuse of State property by our politicians and their cronies. However, these two individuals are in for trouble at my hands.

What did they do when Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the self-styled major financier, if not the sole financier, of NDC, duped Ghana out of over Ghc51.2 million? I want to be referred to any published source on the actions that they took, if they took any at all. If they did take any action, was it supportive of Woyome keeping the money, or it was in the interest of the nation with intent to compel Woyome to refund the money to the State with interest payment?

With all the established official corruption in perpetration and perpetuation by President Mahama, his NDC government, and some NDC party members, what have Alex Doe and George Spencer Quaye done about it? I want to read what they have done; they are doing, and will do about it. Or, they have never been aware of such instances of acts of corruption masterminded and executed by their party members?

Are these two mentioned persons sane at all? How much do the two State vehicles they allege Nana Akufo Addo kept and used for 19 months cost in the first place? Do the cars cost Ghc798, 000 or the quoted sum they are claiming includes the price of the cars plus interests and penalties? How did they arrive at Ghc798, 000 that they are obliging payment from him?

I quite remember, hardly had the late President Mills and the NDC won the year 2008 elections when one Victor Smith, then sacked official Spokesperson for former President Rawlings marshalled gangs of loud-mouthed yobs to retrieve State cars from the outgoing NPP Government Ministers.

Did they make any attempts to retrieve the alleged cars from Nana Akufo Addo? If they did, what was the outcome? Did he refuse to give the cars up? If they did not make any efforts to confiscate the cars, why did they not?

When did the pressure group Inside Ghana become aware of Nana Addo keeping two State 4×4 vehicles for 19 months without having the right to keep them? Why should they link the money (Ghc798, 000) claimed from him to barring him from contesting for the presidency in 2016? This goes to tell their silly NDC motives. With all the obvious corruption, incompetence, cluelessness, practice of selective justice and teeming injustices, the hallmarks of President Mahama and the NDC, these two individuals and their myopic Inside Ghana, still dream of maintaining Mahama at the presidency beyond 2016 hence, their current action against Nana Akufo Addo.

When I took Woyome on, in attempts to retrieve the money he swindled from the State through the dubiously arranged "create, loot and share" judgment debt payments, where were these two mentioned vermin? Were they not rather in bed with him, throwing their unflinching weight behind him, and encouraging him not to pay the money back to the State?

If retired Supreme Court Judge, Justice Francis Kpegah, failed in his similar evil-intent ploy to bring Nana Akufo Addo down in 2012, so shall become the disgraceful fate of the disguised NDC vermin, Alex Doe and George Spencer Quaye.

I am preparing more explosive publications that will see these guys locked in the washer-dryer for sometime after which they will come out with clean minds.

The political enemies of Nana Addo will fail. They will be caught midway in their diabolical tracks, God willing.

THE BATTLE IS STILL THE LORD'S.
