Nana Addo’s undemocratic tendencies exposed


Nana-AddoExactly 5 yrs ago today, around this time (12:30pm) I was around East Legon,
inside Akufo Addo’s residence. I was led into what can best be described as a guardroom buy some men who pretended to be providing security in the house.

it was the day Supporters of Akufo Addo and the NPP pounced on me and gave me the beating of my life time. This was right under the supervision of Gabby Asare Otchere- Darko and Mustapha Hamid (Aids to Nana Akufo Addo). Solomon Sasu-Mensah of Oman FM (a colleague journalist and a friend) was reporting the incident live on radio while Net2 cameras were on me constantly. Heavily built armed security men were standing by and watching while the NPP hooligans take turn to slap, hit, nock and
pinch me.

My crime was that I was allegedly feeding Radio Gold with proceedings taking place at Akufo Addo’s residence. A ‘crime’ I was innocent of, (I still insist that my hands are clean on that allegation).

Had God not intervened on my behalf on that day through Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako Jnr, I would have been killed on Dec. 31, 2008 and my body missing, for that was the wish of the chanting crowd outside who felt or were led into believing that they legitimately won that year’s elections but were cheated. I would hav left my one yr old baby fatherless and my wife a widow, but that was not the will of God for me.

Am grateful to My father Mr. John Kingson Hukporti, and friends like Justice Lee Adoboe, Ernest Addo, Kwaku Sakyi Danso and Andrew Edwin Arthur, among others whose noise in the media on that day helped set me free.

One day I shall tell this story in full. To God be the glory, great things he has done.
