NPP: Easy On The Criminal

Just whom are we trying to impress? That’s a question that has occurred to me when this 70- years old –man Akufo Addo has continued to orchestrate violence for the third time against Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng admirers and yet goes scot-free. NPP members, whom are we trying to impress by allowing this 70 –year- old man to continue to use violent methods to destroy UP tradition since 1979.? This Akufo Addo, an old age man, instructed his personal security guards to go to the NPP Greater Accra head office to beat up Poku, who was Akufo Addo’s supporter before he decided to leave him due to his divisiveness sudden violence and lack of vision for the NPP and Ghana. I have a message for those who were sent by Akufo Addo and Akufo Addo himself and his mafia gangsters after I send my boys to visit Poku. We the supporters of John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng will square off with this 70-year-old knucklehead Akufo Addo and his supporters soon. If this Akufo Addo believes his violent political tactics he learned from his political advisor Kwadwo Tiskata can be used against Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng supporters, he should wait and see .

Whom are we trying to impress? Enough is enough with this Akufo Addo already. He and his uncle William Ofori Attah did same thing in 1979 by disrespecting the Council of Elders of the UP traditional members by destroying the (PFP) are UP traditional party’s chances to win the 1979 general elections against (CPP) PNP’s party.This 70 -year -old man and his Akyem mafia do not understand that politics is not about ethnicity but rather about one’s ability to lead an organization with good vision to win power for the NPP. This Akufo Addo cannot provide such qualities and leadership abilities for the nation and NPP. Whom are we trying to impress;? A majority of the current Council of Elders are afraid of Akufo Addo and have taken sides with Akufo Addo’s mafia factionalism by allowing Akufo Addo the 70-year –old man to use violence and intimidation against those NPP members who support John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng. However, this council of Elders should immediately realize that respect is not a gift. One has to earn it. As a result of that, if they can’t stop Akufo Addo’s violence against Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng’s supporters, then we the supporters of Alan will unequivocally stop him.

Whom are we trying to impress when the council of Elders within the NPP has not been able to go to the public and speak out against violent behavior Akufo Addo has exhibited within the NPP organization for all this time? Now this 70- year- old man Akufo Addo is saying what? That he condemns any type of violent liars.? Akufo Addo cannot extricate himself from the violence that has become his lifestyle a lifestyle he has learned from the NDC’s murderous Kwadwo Tiskata. Whom are we trying to impress NPP members by covering up Akufo Addos violent devices? During the 2007 NPP presidential nomination delegates’ conference at the university of Ghana, Akufo Addo and Francis Poku the former Minister of security planned deadly attacks on Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng if he had won the nomination at the conference hall. There would have been a serious violent dilemma because they also had another plan with his criminal counterpart Lord commey, to cause violence if saw that Akufo Addo was losing the election in which Lord commey, was able to carry out his mission for Akufo Addo as they planned. But this time we the supporters of Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng will never again-- I mean never --- sit and fold our arms for such thing to happen. We will demand an eye for an eye.

In December 2007 before the NPP presidential nomination this 70 –year- old man Akufo Addo, who does not possess even commonsense, turned the Parliament House of Chambers into a boxing ring by physically attacking his fellow legislator, the Hon: Stephen Asamoah Boateng for supporting John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng. Akufo Addo the –70- year- old man who has adopted a violent political plan from the NDC murderer Kwadwo Tiskata for using intimidation, harassment, physical violence and verbal attacks against his opponents; he thinks we the supporters of Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng are afraid of him. Akufo Addo should wait and see. After he attacked Hon: Asamoah Boateng and Poku we the supporters of Alan Kwadwo will prove to him and his Akyem Mafia gangs that they are all chickens. They will find that out sooner than later. If this so-called council of Elders think we will allow them to spoil our UP tradition organization with their Akufo Addo, before they follow this 70 year old man to his grave, they should wait and see. If they don’t have any power to stop his violent attacks on Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng supporters, we do.

Which leads me to ask again; Just whom are we trying to impress.?
