NDC’s Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho have asked the wife of the NPP’s flagbearer, Rebecca Akufo-Addo should forget the first lady’s position if she can’t advise her husband to caution his party members on the attack of women in high government office.
Comments that Mrs Charlotte Osei offered sex in return for her appointment as chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has triggered Koku to conclude that the wife of the leader of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is not “fit” for the position he follows her husband to campaign for.
He however challenged Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo to condemn a distasteful statement made by Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong that the EC boss traded sex for her position.
Addressing some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Kumasi on Saturday June 25, 2016, the NPP outspoken lawmaker alleged that some highly-placed persons in government advised Mrs Osei, then chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), who took over from Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan as EC boss – to “bring your derriere in exchange for the EC Chair position.”
However, Koku Anyidoho was emphatic that – the attack on Charlotte Osei will be “a first class ticket for Nana Addo to remain in opposition forever.”
He opined that, Nana Addo’s bad leadership as the flagbearer of the NPP has led to the stereotype against women in his party – he also described him as “arrogant”.
This he said must be condemned by his wife, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo and all his 4 daughters if indeed they are against feminism attacks.
“Rebecca Akufo-Addo is also a woman and want the opposition as a first lady. My guidance to her is that, she should advise her husband to publicly condemn what Kennedy Agyapong said or she will never be a first lady in this country,” he said in an interview with on NEAT FM’s ‘Ghana Montie’ programme.
