NPP Still Demands Financial Accountability From Akufo Addo III

THIS ISSUE WILL NEVER GO AWAY UNTILL AKUFO ADDO RETURNS THE MONIES

Recently, the NPP contested a bi- election in the northern region at Chereponi constituency. Before the election the Former President John Agyekum Kufuor, had to invite all NPP 2012 residential candidate wannabe’s to his office. He asked them to contribute immediately to the bi- elections. The reason is there is no money to finance the bi- election. The party urgently needed of cash to finance their day-to-day activities, while Akufo Addo is holding on to millions of the reminder of the party’s money forms the 2008 election.

As the Bible says “ For the lack of knowledge my people perish” which is the case with so many NPP members who have not been able to access actual information concerning what is actually happened with this great institution. The majority of us whose ancestors shed their blood to establish this organization have become speculators without any competent information. As I have always said the NPP party does not belong to anyone. As a result of this we should not allow anyone individual to claim ownership of this organization. During the invitation by Kufuor, Akufo Addo showed up. Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng, Isaac Osei and Quashgan, Akufo Addo, who is holding onto the party’s money, are the ones who have contributed the most, more than the former president. Why was Akufo Addo able to contribute more then the former, president? Because the money is not his personal money. The money is the party’s money, which he is currently using to bribe some constituency chairmen’s to select his own people in the on going polling station executive election that is going on around the country. This is what is using the party’s money for. The last three weeks in Accra Akufo Addo invited some of my boys and bribe them to vote for his preferred people who will have the opportunity to vote for him for the next NPP presidential nomination. He gave them Gh 20.00 each and my boys grin. I have asked them to take his money anytime he invites them because he has stolen the party’s money. The most ironic thing with this is the NPP’s money, which Kufuor handed over to Akufo Addo during the 2008 campaign. One day Akufo Addo entered his room where these millions is kept he found his aide Mustapha Himid stealing some of the monies slipping it into his underwear Akufo Addo sacked him. In politics courage is a disappearing commodity. The majority of our citizens are to speak the truth. Why I’m saying all this because only a fool will follow a blind men; Akufo does not have the party at heart. If he did he would have give accountability to the party as soon as he ended his failed 2008 presidential bid. Those who said if they enlarge the numbers of the delegates the bribery will stop are dead wrong. Your Akufo Addo has already started. Akofu Addo is also using these monies to pay some of his criminal supporters to use text messages to threaten Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng’s supporters in a violent manner. Akufo Addo got all this criminal thuggish tactics from his chief political adviser whom the majority of NPP members are not aware of is Kojo Tsikata.

Let me take this opportunity to respond to this ruthless knucklehead nonentity impudent fool Akufo Addo’s houseboy, Abdul Rahman Abdullah who thinks politics is learned from the street but not in a classroom. Thank God that John Agyekum Kufuor went to school in Great Britain to earn his BA in political science. He learns how to become real politician. Real politicians know how to raise money to finance their political activities, let alone a sitting president who cannot raise funds for his party organization. This idiot who has no knowledge about raising funds has the audacity to question how the president was able to raise millions for his party!

I will not waste my time on this useless houseboy Abdul Raman. This lunatic has the nerve to call me a faceless coward: this motherfcker asked the NPP members who have visited me in my office over here they to tell you who am I. Your master, Akufo Addo the 70-year-old men who needs retirement even knows that I’m not coward. For your information the threes Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng served as the president Special Initiative (PSI) the works he did over there were more vital to the citizens of our nation than your70-year-old Akufo Addo’s six years in Foreign Affairs. He provides good jobs for our youth in the Volta region in the shortest possible time. He has innovated ideas for more than your 70-year-old master Akufo Addo. I urge all UP/PFP/NPP members who are not properly informed about the activities of our great institution not to worry. I will inform them because I don’t owe anybody anything. Even if Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng, whom I believe to be the best choice, now to lead our organization for the 2012 elections, misbehaved, I will be the first person to inform you all.
