Kum Apem Epistle
By Kwame Anokye (PhD)
I read with incredulity the darkest attempt by a self described Pastor and chairman of the New Patriotic Party’s legal and constitutional committee Professor Mike Ocquaye, to whitewash the demagogue (Akufo-Addo) he keenly worships and adore, from his inherent REIGN OF VIOLENCE AND TERROR as captured on the front pages of the Informer Newspaper “Afoko is the Source of Violence in the NPP”.
It is sad that, the grown dishonest Mike Ocquaye will hide behind his Professorial title to make exploits in Lying just to please the originator of “All Die Be Die”, Akufo-Addo. I have no qualms whatsoever with Mike Ocquaye if he worships and sings praises to the father of “All Die Be Die” at the Nima fortress like he’s always done, however, I am deeply saddened about the fact that, Mike Ocquaye has chosen to abandon his profession for the peddling of spurious lies and slander, which rather embarrasses his own conscience and dignity of his family. He is a self-style baptist pastor and he should know better. For where Professor Mike Ocquaye is traversing in recent times, if I don’t awake him from his sycophantic venture, he will end up not only as a DISHONEST HISTORIAN , but his Maker will tell him, ” YOU WERE AN IRRELEVANT AND A WORTHLESS PASTOR” on the day of judgement.
Before I start, I want Mike Ocquaye to put his hand on his heart to say again the lies that “Haruna Esseku was suspended as a Chairman”
Between 1994 and 2007 where Candidate JA Kufour took over from Candidate Professor Albert Adu Boahene, the NPP has never witnessed any form of violence and thuggery. Candidate Kufour even when he was left to carry his own cross by proponents of the dreadful G-15 Led by Akufo-Addo, Ala Adjetey , Kwabena Agyepong, Victor Newman, and Co, he steered affairs of the party with remarkable tolerance, genuine heart and mind , and a crave for Unity in diversity. Irrefutably, President JA Kufour is the most successful Presidential candidate and flagbearer the NPP tradition has ever had. He remains the Most successful leader and elder, the NPP has ever had. In terms of government, his sterling leadership, his unique desire for tolerance, genuine unity, transparency, accountability and Peace has earned him the accolade in a gold plate “THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CIVILIAN TO HAVE RULED GHANA PEACEFULLY AND HANDED OVER PEACEFULLY”.
SOURCE OF VIOLENCE IN THE NPP IS AKUFO-ADDO; HE IS THE FATHER OF “ALL BE DIE”
*KUME PREKO VIOLENCE AND KILLINGS.
Akufo-Addo who, has , for propaganda value, embellished himself as the convener of the “Kume Preko” demonstration in his overly contrived CV strewn on Google and other places, albeit he was a member, abandoned the victims and families of violent killing in the demonstration. Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe a joint organizer of the event said and added that Kwesi Pratt Jnr could corroborate the claim, captured it as ” Out of Kumi Preko we lost about eight people and up until this very day nothing has been done for the families of these fallen ones. Believe me or not, through Kumi Preko, a young man of thirteen years, Ahunu was shot in front of the Adabraka Primary School so you can imagine if he was alive today what his age would be. But when we came to power under President J.A Kufuor, we had then promised to help these people but we did nothing for them. They are there at Adabraka as I talk now. This same family approached Nana Addo but he did nothing for them when we were in power”.
2007 LEGON VIOLENCE
The NPP after shortlisting the numerous candidates for the flagbearership position to 17 of which Professor Ocquaye was part, ended up in University of Ghana, Legon to elect the next Presidential candidate of the Party who will take over from President JA Kufour. Prior to Legon, Akufo-Addo’s campaign was characterized with insults and verbal abuses from his hirelings and cousins against leading contenders such as Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Alan Kyerematen, Papa Owusu Ankomah, etc. This was succinctly captured in an article in the Daily Graphic by one Kwasi okai “The stain that marred the beautiful but heated campaign to elect the next successor to President Kufour was that of Akufo-Addo. His surrogates such as Ursula Owusu , Gabby Okyere-Darko, and Co never missed chance in lashing verbal abuses at the Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama and Alan Kyerematen. Akufo-Addo as I have known him is full of agitation and Violence, he is taking this contest as a life and death one with his unpopular campaign message “Y3 Nim Me Fre Tete. I wouldn’t be surprised if his highly incensed supporters cause mayhem in Legon.””
In Legon, when it dawn on Akufo-Addo’s gangs that, Alan Kyerematen was winning, they devise a cruel, heinous and violent orchestration to disrupt the process of harmonious Voting. What happened was captured on several media platforms as “AKUFO-ADDO SUPPORTERS MARS LEGON CONGRESS WITH VIOLENCE”. National Chairman of the NPP Paul Afoko was captured in pages 35 of the New York based African Watch Magazine as saying” Indeed what happened at that congress at Legon was outright thuggery!
I went to the Legon congress – and the pictures are there – wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt with NPP colors embroided around the neck. How could I have carried half a million US dollars in the pockets of my jeans? And to go into the conference hall, we all went through a metal detector and a body search. I didn’t have a single penny on me. Not a penny! I had left the cash I had on me in my car parked in front of Volta Hall, locked. The congress was held in the Great Hall. I had no cash on me.
When the Akufo-Addo team realized that the voting trend was going firmly in favor of Alan Kyeremateng, they orchestrated this whole thing that Afoko was distributing money to delegates to vote for Kyeremateng, to create confusion and an immediate disaf- fection for the man and to change the trend.
I had gone to the washroom, and when I came back I walked towards where the delegates were. The Northern Region had finished voting and they had left, so the whole of that area was empty. Empty seats! I have got the TV footage because I tried to go to court over this matter.
It was in the middle of those empty seats that a group of people just rushed up and grabbed me and said I was giving out money. They pushed and kicked at me. In the middle of empty seats! I wonder whether I was giving money to empty seats. Seriously!
So the whole attention of the congress now turned to me. Somebody then took the micro- phone and started working the emotions of the delegates. “Paul Afoko is sharing money over there. Is this party for sale?” That sort of thing.
For the first time I tasted the rough end of politics internally within my own party. Immediately it was all over for me. I told myself, “Disengage, you don’t want any more of this, focus on your business.””
After the Counting of ballots and everything has been done, Akufo-Addo never had the 50%+1 threshold which the constitution of the party demands. Hence, the need for a rerun between the two leading contenders, Alan Kyerematen and Akufo-Addo. For the sake of peace and unity, Alan Kyerematen on his own volition with no condition, gave up the contest and announced that, he was going to support Akufo-Addo as the Presidential candidate of the NPP.
Insatiable in his thirst for violence and thuggery, Nana Akufo-Addo established a reign of terror in the NPP right after assuming the Flagbearership position of the New Patriotic Party in 2007. Akufo-Addo began to impose his Inherent Intolerant beliefs on the party such that today when he says he wants something, no INDEPENDENT MIND should attempt to disagree with his position. Akufo-Addo and his hirelings assume their first responsibility, which was a show of vindictiveness and attacking of any NPP member who supported Alan. One Alan loyalist who was at party’s Asylum Down Headquarters, identified as Nana Kwame is a victim of Akufo-Addo’s thuggery and Violence addiction.
Nana Kwame was trapped in a dark room at the party’s headquarters by hirelings of Akufo-Addo, they punched Nana Kwame in the face, knocking him to the ground; bloodied by bludgeoning the side of his head with cutlass and a sledgehammer; leaving him paralysed. Nana Kwame underwent a Brain surgery at the Korlebu Teaching Hospital. Today, he is paralyzed and walks with an aiding material. Quite apart from that, Aspirants for the Parliamentary candidate Positions in 2008 who were known supporters of Alan Kyerematen tasted open persecution, bias, and ostracism from Akufo-Addo. A clear case in point was the Asante Bekwai Parliamentary contest. Because Joseph OWusu Alias “Joe Wise” never supported Akufo-Addo in the 2007 primaries, Akufo-Addo told party executives in the constituency just as others in Akan parlance, “Men Tumi Ne No Ny3 Adwuma” to wit “I can’t work with him”. Joseph Owusu contested as an independent candidate and he won the seat against the all the odds of the naked emperor Akufo-Addo.
2010 TRADE FAIR VIOLENCE
Akufo-Addo as part of his inordinate desire to take over the party, in connivance with the scoundrel Peter Mc Manu who was then party chairman, amended the party’s constitution. Something Akufo-Addo and his Kyebi mafias plan of doing after the 2016 elections, against the backdrop as having been denied of that request by the duly elected Independent minded and fair minded National Chairman of our time , Paul Afoko.
The trade fair Congress was again stain with Violence abuse from Akufo-Addo and his hirelings against supporters of Alan Kyerematen. Isn’t it curious that , Professor Mike Ocquaye, for fear of been denied his malnourished body from elevated sycophancy , will reluctantly decide not to remember all these reign of chaos and awkward mannerism of his tinpot, Akufo-Addo?
By the start of 2012 calender year, Akufo-Addo has absolutely metamorphosed the good NPP left to him in 2007 by President Kufour into a home grown entity, synonymous with dark violence, vindictiveness, thuggery chaos and intolerance. The Washington Based Centre for Strategic And International Studies, Page 16 of its Africa Report in June 2011, authored by David W. Throup captured the inherently Violence addiction of the toxic Flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo as “The role of the NPP leader and expected presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, will be crucial, and early signals suggest reason for worry. Akufo-Addo is desperate to mobilize support, and He has played the ethnic cards, referring to the NPP as “We the Akans,” urging his supporters to “all die be die”–that is, they should be willing to die to ensure the NPP’s victory”
BEYOND 2012, AKUFO-ADDO’S FLIRTATION WITH VIOLENCE
Undeniably, Akufo-Addo is the only Ghanaian politician ever to have an incessant flirtation with violence words. Terrifyingly, anytime Akufo-Addo travels outside Ghana, violence befalls the NPP, making Akufo-Addo’s travel to become of national Security concern. His fiercest loyalist and family members have not been left out of this craze.
Addressing gatherings of his newly created Polling station ie the UK Branch, Akufo-Addo said “The judge’s told us that whatever happens at the Polling stations, whether good or bad, whether it is in accordance with the law or not, once it has been recorded at the polling stations, they the judge’s can do nothing about it… We have learned our lessons and we are going to take our fight to the polling stations.”
Ashanti Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Bosiako, A fiercest loyalist of Akufo-Addo who slapped MP for Manhyia North and got hailed by Akufo-Addo at a fund raising in London for acting as such is quoted as saying ” “This is an elections of our lives”.
Elsewhere in Ghana, Akufo-Addo is quoted as “we are going to use the MILITANCY on ourside to fight them”
A ferocious loyalist of Akufo-Addo who Akufo-Addo, described as “Redoubtable” for insulting the Former President JA Kufour and his Chief Of Staff as Murderers, Ken Agyapong was quoted as saying on his own Oman Fm “Kill Gas and Ewes.”
Prior to the 2014 Presidential contest, Akufo-Addo’s cousin Atta Kyea said this to a gathering in Kyebi -” Anybody who fails to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo is a wizard.”
A goon and a fiercest loyalist of the Kyebi beast, Akufo-Addo who is the Eastern Regional chairman of the NPP, Kinston Akomeng-Kissi is not left out of this affection with violence. He is quoted as saying “We will kill Anybody who stands on the way of Nana Akufo-Addo”
ADAMS MAHAMA AND JB KILLINGS
The Kyebi beast Akufo-Addo killed Adams Mahama. Let Akufo-Addo put his hands on his heart and say he never had a hand in Adams murder. A steering committee meeting where National Chairman Paul Afoko told the meeting his intention to visit the three northern regions had Akufo-Addo and Adams Mahama as participants in that meeting. Adams Mahama and John Boadu were both with Kwabena Agyepong the night before the visit to Upper East Region planning on how to go about with the meeting in Bolga. On the Following day, Adams and John Boadu after listening to the deception of the Nima beast Akufo-Addo, pretended ignorance of the said meeting they both were planing with Kwabena Agyepong. Indeed, John Boadu came to drop Adams Mahama at the airport. Adams vilified Kwabena Agyepong to the amazement of passengers and it took Lawyer Ambruse Derry to restore calm. In Bolga, Adams armed the thugs (loading boys) at Bolga station to come and attack party officers who had thronged from their various constituencies to meet with Chairman Afoko and Kwabena Agyepong. Police fired tear gas and Adams and his thugs dispersed. Next moment, Adams directed the thugs to beat mercilessly, his regional Organizer whose crime only was to organize the meeting. The Organizer had blood running all over his body. Akufo-Addo kept quite and never condemn this act of Violence from his ferocious loyalist Adams Mahama. All he did was to pack his luggage and left for a two weeks tour in Europe. Whiles Akufo-Addo was away, Adams was Killed just as Akufo-Addo had planned.
Few hours after Adams was confirmed dead, Kamal Deen said on CitiFm that, he was the last person to call Adams Mahama and ” as a brother when he [Adams Mahama] called me I didn’t mince words at all, I just told him this is a signal I have received, and that he should be mindful of his security and above all be very prayerful.”
Then Akufo-Addo and his unwise goons, foolishly found it worthy to hang the murderer on Gregory Afoko, brother of the NPP National Chairman Paul Afoko, who was fast asleep in his father’s room, just to justify their hatred for the pride of the North. You see how they are struggling to prove the cause of Adams death with cheap conspiracy theories? So Akufo-Addo and his bunch of goons began asking Chairman Afoko to resign. Why is Akufo-Addo not resigning over the murder of his brother JB Dankwa Adu when indeed, all proves points to him as the prime suspect in the murder of the late legislator and entrepreneur?
Few days before this incidence, Adams had a confrontation with his First Vice Chairman over Monies meant for “Dumsor demonstration” in Bolga, and Adams is reported to have slapped the Vice Chairman.
Security Changes at the headquarters was done by Musah Superior who was then Executive Secretary of General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong.
Violence erupting at the party headquarters against a Press conference organized by the party was orchestrated by Akufo-Addo and Hackman Owusu-Agyemang. Akufo-Addo and Hackman organized the thugs and armed them with machetes, metals, guns, cutlass, pickass, bows, etc
ATTACK ON ATLUK IBRAHIM
Akufo-Addo’s thugs at the headquarters trapped again Atluk Ibrahim, an aide to Chairman Afoko in a room at the party’s asylum down headquarters and roughed him up under the instructions of Akufo-Addo. Atluk suffered a fracture in the bone of his left arm as Akufo-Addo’s thugs broke his arm. He underwent a surgery at the 37 military hospital
AKUFO-ADDO IMPORTS SERBIANS AND SOUTH AFRICAN MILITANTS
On the blindside of the party, Akufo-Addo and his cousin Ken Ofori-Atta imported militants from Serbia and South Africa to do what they called “ASSAULTING THE PILLARS OF POWER” They trained Akufo-Addo’s gullible fanatics in gun wielding, building of bombs, etc.
On Asawase Killing of Sadiq, it was Akufo-Addo who orchestrated it and this happened the next moment, after Akufo-Addo had left out of the country. It is said that, Akufo-Addo organized Sadiq and some other thugs to come and attack the constituency Chairman Brenya and his other Executives. It is reported also that, Sadiq and his gangs used red substance to damage the Asawase constituency office of the NPP and that among other reasons ensued into Violence. There was a tussle and as Akufo-Addo had planned, they killed Sadiq to justify a position.
SLAPPING OF MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT
After Akufo-Addo had exhausted all means to remove the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North who is a strong ally of Alan Kyerematen, Ashanti Regional Chairman Bernard Bosiako Alias Wontumi on the advise of Akufo-Addo, slapped the Manhyia North MP. Akufo-Addo hailed Wontumi for this abuse at a fundraising event in UK.
THREATS ON JOURNALIST.
Father of Popular host of Neat Fm program Lawyer Adakabre Frimpong Manso , confirmed how Akufo-Addo accosted and sent severals of threatening messages to his son to stop critiquing him. The versatile Kwame Tikesie has faced same threatening from Akufo-Addo. Former President of Ghana Journalist Association Kabral Amerehe Blay, has also stated in his book as been accosted and attacked by Akufo-Addo for using his (Kabral) own Newspaper to support the Presidential bid of Candidate Kufour prior to the Sunyani Congress in 1998
VIOLENCE IN UK BRANCH OF NPP
It has been reported widely on several media platforms that Akufo-Addo instructed his security capo, the usher forts prison jail breaker and conman Captain Koda , to apprehend and attack a lone verbal dissenter at a function in the UK branch. The dissenter, Ohene Boakye whose crime was to only disagree with Akufo-Addo’s extol of Wontumi for his reckless conduct against the MP for Manhyia north, was left at the mercy of dogs of Akufo-Addo led by Captain Koda. The dogs of Akufo-Addo knocked the head of Ohene several times and they thorn his shirt.
After reading through few examples of Akufo-Addo’s inexcusable flirtation with violence, you would understand why his dishonest hireling, Professor Mike Ocquaye was rejected miserably in the party’s 2007 flagbearership race. The abandoning of God’s Word for Lies has not only made Mike Ocquaye an indictment to the world of honest historians and the world of pastors but also, it has made his professorial title patently irrelevant to academia.
NPP members who intuitively understand the peril in Akufo-Addo’s abiding of violence in politics understand that it has ultimately empower Akufo-Addo to become the most thuggish, ruthless, impulsive politician ever in Ghana.
The party’s very ethos and principles under Akufo-Addo is been defined by dark violence, hawkish, recycled rhetoric, intolerance, indiscipline, thuggish and the haughty behaviour of the beast and naked emperor Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Professor Mike Ocquaye, it is better late for you to start veering from that path of elevated sycophancy , mentally enslaved, breach of common sense,
intellectual dishonesty and subduing yourself to that exconvict rastafarian- Gabby Asare Okyere-Darko and the Beast of Nima Fortress, the naked Emperor Nana Akufo-Addo, than NEVER
