Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has claimed that late president Prof Evans Atta Mills has warned him to stay away from all political discussions on radio, so he is embarking on a partial media break indefinitely.
“Late Atta Mills has warned me, so I won’t go on any radio station to speak” – Allotey Jacobs
According to Bernard Allotey Jacobs, he will not appear on any political discussion programme on radio stations including Peace FM where he has been a regular guest before his suspension from the National Democratic Congress.
“I decided that today I will not come. I am very sorry; I know I will disappoint you. Peace FM is part of my success, what happened last week I still don’t understand. Those I started politics with in the 70s called and spoke to me and so I came to the conclusion that I won’t come. I am very sorry; I know I will disappoint you (Kwami Sefa Kayi),” Adomonline.com quoted him as saying.
“I had a vision of late President, Prof John Evans Atta Mills and he warned me in that dream and so I won’t go on any radio station to speak,” he added.
The leadership of the NDC suspended the outspoken staunch member on May 6, 2020, based on what it described as ‘his consistent anti-party conduct’.
Despite his suspension, Allotey Jacobs initially insisted that he wouldn’t stop voicing out his views regarding the NDC party, saying he is a social commentator.
However, reports say he was expected to be in the studio of Peace FM as a panel member but he declined the invitation, saying “it cannot be that because of one man, a whole political party will boycott your show.”
For now, he will only be available for interviews on radio and TV stations when called upon but will not be a part of any panel discussions as he has done over the years.
It is not clear yet how long Mr Jacobs will remain in the partial hibernation.
