You might have heard miserable ventriloquist of the Kyebi Demagogue Akufo-Addo, variously make the claim that President Mahama is “incompetent.”
That alternatively, the Kyebi demagogue Nana Akufo-Addo is the ‘messiah’ to this incompetence.
How true can this be?
Nana Akufo-Addo became the flagbearer of the NPP in 2007 after the deadlocked primaries at Legon.
He effectively started his campaign to become the President of Ghana when Alan Kyerematen on the basis of Unity, decided voluntarily with no condition to allow Akufo-Addo lead the Presidential election as the flagbearer.
Akufo-Addo had incumbency advantage and his political party in 2004 had won elections in 6 out 10 regions of Ghana by a resounding margin of 52%.
With the most expensive campaign then in 2007/2008, the Kyebi demagogue Akufo-Addo lost the election to President Mills.
Indeed on his first attempt in the first round of 2008 elections, the Kyebi demagogue Akufo-Addo frantically dwarfed the results of the NPP from 52% to 49%. It is said that, Akufo-Addo is the only and most failed Flagbearer ever in the history of the NPP to have depreciated the electoral margins and fortunes of the NPP with his “Competence.”
The “competent” Toxic Akufo-Addo is the first flagbearer of the NPP tradition to have taken the NPP from power into an 8 years of bewilderment.
One would have expected that as a leader of a party,he would take responsibility for the defeat but he ended up blaming everyone from Dr Afari Gyan,former President Kuffour,then General Secretary,Nana Ohene Ntow, Rita Asobayire, then National Women Organizer of NPP among others for the defeat except himself. One qualities of leadership is to accept responsibility but this “Competent” Kyebi demagogue has never accepted responsibility for his recklessness and damaged done to the NPP
The disastrous Kyebi demagogue Akufo-Addo is so ‘competent’ that he is unable to convince people to vote for him.
“Competent” Akufo-Addo has successfully reduced the party’s fortunes from winning 6 regions in 2004 to a miserable One and half in 2012.
Then he got himself elected again as flagbearer for the 2012 elections.
So much for his ‘competence’ that he lost the election to the relatively inexperience flagbearer of the NDC,President John Mahama, after Akufo-Addo had campaigned and toured the “coaltar roads” of Ghana for about four times.
A few of the tours,RESTORATION OF HOPE TOUR,ALL HANDS ON DECK among other natonwide tours.
Akufo-Addo ‘competently’ lost the election to President Mahama from his 49% performance in 2008 to 47% in 2012 with a bigger population size.
Let it be noted that, the self decorated “Competent” Akufo-Addo lost in 2008 by a little over 30,000 votes. In 4 years later, this margin increased by 10 times such that, he lost 2012 elections by a little over 300,000 votes.
Former President Kuffour left a more united party to him but Akufo-Addo has ‘competently’ divided the party through violence,vindictiveness,hounding, intolerance, pestering, and sacking of INDEPENDENT MINDED people in his party
The Kyebi demagogue Akufo-Addo is so ‘competent’ that he cant keep his house united.
He is currently working with his peers in criminal acts who he handpicked and reluctantly decorated them as acting national officers.
Competence comes with tact. Now what is so competent about that disastrous Kyebi maggot?
So who is this ‘competent’ man who can’t keep his house together?
He is so ‘competent’ that he cant win a national election except in the NPP?
What really has he done as public officer to make him the most competent person in Ghana?
His worked as ATTORNEY GENERAL and MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS.
What did he do so outstanding in these two positions?
Did He broker peace between the ISRAEL AND PALESTINE? How he shared millions of Euros with his cousin Ken Ofori-Atta from the sale of passport accrued for more than 4 years under his watch as Foreign Minister or what? How Akufo-Addo was caught in 2002 with cocaine at the UK? What is so exceptional about that Kyebi demagogue?
Or as Attorney General, he reformed the Attorney General Department?
What ground breaking reforms?
How he ‘competently’ prosecuted Tsatsu Tsikata with the infamous “The President v Tsatsu Tsikata?”
How did he demonstrate his competence in public service?
Dont tell me he brought water to his hometown of Kyebi or got all the roads there asphalted.
What really is competence to the gullible fanatics of the Kyebi demagogue Akufo-Addo?
