How Volta NPP Got Akufo-Addo Into Wet Dream..With Fake Peki Chiefs, Hired Crowd & Ranted Media Men

The claim by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, to annihilate the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in its stronghold of the Volta Region in this year’s election, looks like a wet dream that has ended unpleasantly.

It has emerged that, the NPP in the Volta Region, led by John Peter Amewu, did not only arrange crowds for Akufo-Addo, while in the region, but also overnight created chieftaincy titles, enstooled chiefs, got them palaces, so they could endorse the NPP flagbearer, in the presence of hired media men.

The NPP is not vibrant in the region. It only makes noise in Accra from the Volta. Indeed, there are political entrepreneurs, milking the party dry with false hope.

The Chief of Peki, Dzogbati, Togbe Agamela VI, who met with Nana Akufo-Addo, during his recent 5-day tour of the Region, who spoke on behalf of the chiefs of Peki traditional area, has turned out to be an imposter.

This came to light on Wednesday, when the acting President of the Peki Traditional Area, Togbe Ayim Mordey, addressed a Durbar of Chiefs and people of South Dayi at Peki Tsame, when the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, took his campaign tour to the area.

A man said to be Togbe Agamela VI at Peki Blengo, had been reported by the Akufo-Addo Campaign team and media men, following the NPP flagbearer, as saying that the Peki traditional area, has always been behind the NPP.

“We are solidly behind Nana Akufo-Addo, when Peki says it is behind you nothing can convince them to withdraw, but if you disappoint us, we will disappoint you too,” he was quoted saying.

“Nana Addo respects us and we respect him too and have accepted him wholeheartedly. We in South Dayi have a lot of challenges. The NDC has tried to solve some but not all. We are optimistic Nana Akufo-Addo will do it for us when he wins the elections,” he said.

“We support Nana and know he can help us that is why we want to lay our problems before him. Road network on the Peki Training College is very bad and we will be happy if Nana and the NPP will consider constructing it for us. The Peki Secondary School also lacks infrastructure,” he pleaded.

The Djasihene of Peki Traditional Area, Togbe Tekon Tutu Brempong, who was clad in NPP colors expressed disappointment at the NDC for failing to develop the region it calls its political World Bank.

He added that, there was the need for people of the region to see what the other side has gotten, so must desist from voting the NDC and vote the NPP in the coming general elections.

Nana Akufo-Addo, on his part called for support from the Chief’s and urged electorates to vote for the NPP to enable him win the December polls for him to transform the country.

He also reiterated the NPP’s one dam, one district, one factory one district policies, among other programmes his party aims to implement, when given the chance to govern the country.

But Togbe Ayim Mordey VI, debunked the reports and the purported declaration of support by the Chiefs of Peki, saying the Chiefs of his traditional area, have not endorsed the NPP flagbearer.

The Peki Tradiditonal Area, has nine towns under its jurisdiction. They are, Peki-Dzake, Peki-Avatile, Peki-Tsame, Peki Afedziwofe, Peki-Blengo, Peki-Dzagbaati, Peki-Wodome, Peki-Agbate and Peki-Adzorkwe.

It presently has no Paramount Chief, following the death of Togbui Kojo Dei XI, hence Togbe Ayim Mordey, acting as President of the Peki Traditional Area, until another Paramount Chief is enstool.

Again, Agamela VI and Togbe Tekon Tutu Brempong, who met Nana Akufo-Addo, are not mandated to speak on behalf of the Peki Traditional Area.
The revered Adontehene of the Peki State said, “no such thing happened hence the individual who concocted the story will be called and sanctioned.”

He said, his outfit was doing everything possible to punish those behind the concocted story, which was aimed at lowering the credibility of the Chiefs in the eyes of the right thinking members of the Ghanaian society.

“In fact, I wish to take this opportunity to let people understand that no Chief in Peki here endorsed Nana Akufo Addo. The individuals involved in hatching this idea to create confusion are going to be called and sanctioned for their misconduct. So I want to make you understand that there was no such endorsement by Peki chiefs,” the Chief said.

On his part, the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, called on the Chiefs and people of the Volta region, to stand rock-solid with President John Mahama and the NDC, saying there are golden days ahead.

The Chief of Staff in his initial comments, thanked the Chiefs and people of the region for their unflinching and unalloyed support to the NDC since its formation.

He indicated that, the support of the Volta region has been wonderful; something the President and the leadership of the party recognize, hence “the reason I said there is no way the NDC would take the people for granted”.

He likened the relationship between the NDC and the Volta region as “a husband and wife who always had issues and one day the wife parked and left for her parents. What a reasonable husband does is to go to your in laws explain issues and assure them that won’t happen again thus they should give you back the wife and you are going to take great care of her and love her more than ever before.”

Mr. Debrah, who is on a 5-day Volta Regional tour, has visited Peki Tsame, Hevie, Afadjato South, Vakpo and other areas.

The Chief of Staff is in the region to energize the rank and file of the NDC and whip up enthusiasm among party faithful given them reasons why they should maintain President Mahama on Dec 7.

“We are here as your in laws and as your children. In my dialect, there is a saying that even if your most loved child eases on your laps, you don’t cut it off, you wipe it off. You talk to him nicely to ensure he/she doesn’t repeat it,” he said.

He admitted that the NDC was born in the Volta region with our first President hailing from this region. Noting that, when you look at the electoral fortunes you don’t need a soothsayer to tell you, the Volta region is indeed the world Bank of the NDC.

He assured the Chiefs and people of golden times ahead, stating that in governance some things happen in the morning, others in the afternoon and some in the evening.

“Better days are ahead, keep the faith and stand with the NDC as we go to the polls on Dec 7, I urge you all to vote massively for President Mahama and the parliamentary candidates for accelerated socio economic development”, he said.

On the requests by the Chiefs, Julius Debrah said, government has noted their concerns and all things being equal, the second term of President Mahama would focus on the Volta region. “My boss, the President has thought me to always start the day by saying father let thy will be done. When you are a child of God and you believe in him, you don’t fear of who wins or loses an election because God’s own will shall prevail,” he said.

Mr. Debrah who is in the company of Prof. Kwamina Ahwoi, Madam Faustina Nelson, a Vice chairperson of the NDC Anita Desoso, a Presidential Staffer, Emelia Arthur, a deputy general secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho, Dzifa Attivor, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Dzifa Gomashie, Ludwig Hlodze, among others, have also met and interacted with the clergy in the Volta region, as part of his campaign tour of the region.

They demanded for prayers for President Mahama saying “the President and his government’s main concern is to ensure the country progresses, doing what is right before the Lord and to avoid his wrath ” adding government and the church are partners in national development hence the need for the clergy to continue praying for God’s mercy, peace and progress of the nation.

The moderator of the General Assembly of the EP church, Rev.Dr Seth Senyo Agidi, led the congregation to pray for peace and unity, ahead of the elections.

He noted there was no substitute for peace, therefore, the church would continue to pray for the good Lord, to see the country through the elections, without any hitches.
