The Mahama Ayariga Factor

Well? The saying of Mr. Frog after he was question about his silence in summer, but rather races his loud mouth during raining season, may not be applied to this young politician who uses all his might for one aim, an aim to recapture the Bawku Central Constituency seat at all cost, no matter the cost, regardless the number of causalities in his bid to wining the seat, weather for his person or to increase the NDC seat in the House of the assembly is a million dollar question. Yes, he was all over lobbying security capos during Kufour led regime to support him win the seat. He together with Raymond Atugubah then used the Legal Resource Center has a bargaining tool and was cited escorting Nigerian politicians to Bawku for the funeral of late Hawa Yakubu, MP for Bawku Central sponsored by the NPP regime.


The President, Jonh Mills, handed over Bawku to Ayariga, together with his mentor Cletus Avoka, what did he do? THE LAME DUCK STRATEGY STRATEGY.

1 He influenced the nomination and confirmation of Musah as the MCE to Promote his selfish political agenda and that of the Kusasi’s course.

2 Distributed Pistols/assault rifles to NDC/KUSASI tribesmen to protect their interest and his ambition, an open secret known to some cabinet ministers under the Mills led administration yet they talk about?

3 Declare JIHAD (HOLY WAR) to any person who attempts to resist his parliamentary ambition, also openly targeting his parliamentary opponent even at the intra-party level ,one Issaku Mohammed young dynamic politician so sidelined and maimed just because he wants the parliamentary seat, and aslined his opponents.

4 So resourcefull through Muni Bolnaba, NDC regional chairman for upper east region, who uses party influence and hijacked eighty percentage of upper east region contracts and selling them outright for fifteen 15 percent in order to raise funds for the Ayariga ambition, they fell out because funds generated used by Muni to purchased land in Accra at Ashley Botwey and invested in Hawa Bolnaba, the wife of Muni Bolnaba a notorious fertilizer smuggler who use Ayariga’s political might to smuggle products to Togo and Burkina Fasso to the detriment of the poor war torn farmers.

5 Has control of police and military including other security agents in Bawku, to do all it takes to make his movement free and to put impediments on his opponent’s way.

7 Transported Sumaila Belbel to come for contracts and help jail Adamun Sakande because he won the Bawku central seat and gave him Raymond Atugubah, the pet of Francis Poku, former security capo to be the lawyer of Sumaila.

8 All these activities are with the blessings of President Mills and Cletus Avoka, the majority leader of parliament and MP for Zebila , a Kusasi by tribe.

9. Lobbying opinion leaders of the Mamprushie GUMAH/AKALIFA faction, to give him the seat in exchange for peace, sponsoring mamprushie youth at KNUST, LEGON, CAPE COAST .An advance auction vehicle for AKALIFA CONTRACTS FOR ZAKI known NDC activist and opinion leader of the mamprushie using the name of presidents mills that he tasked to do all it takes to win the bawku seat,despite attempted ethnic cleansing of the mamprushies.

Now, he claims due to conflict situation, the municipality deserves class room blocks, why not, they deserve tractors to farm and at the same time they equally deserve pistols to be equitably distributed. Detailers of His NDC gargantuan hotel at west Legon will follow soon in the second series.


Part two to follow soon.
