RE: Kufuor Advises Akufo-Addo…


By Akua Bonsu


The Informer published on Ghanaweb on Wednesday December 19, 2012 that President Kufuor has not only advised Nana Akufo-Addo to concede defeat, but has also warned him not to consider running for the third time. In that article, the advisors of Nana Akufo-Addo were said to be angry over President Kufuor?s comments.


Fortunately I have direct access to both gentlemen, and I can report that no such advice has been given, and no such anger has ensued. In fact President Kufuor is solidly behind Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP?s quest to seek the truth. Any suggestion to the contrary can only be a signal that the Informer in its desperate attempt to cause disaffection with the elephant family will stoop as low as possible to please its corrupt masters who have hijacked our nation?s democracy.


Ghanaians must remember that as we embark upon this democratic journey, its most important component is a credible electoral process. Ghanaians today know that while the NDC is clueless when it comes to governing, it is at its best when it comes to electoral fraud. If the NDC invested even a quarter of the planning and sophistication that it invests in rigging elections, Ghanaians would be better off.


We have known this for far too long, and yet no one has the guts to do something about it. Rather than sitting on the sidelines with indifference, Ghanaians should parade behind the NPP to get to the bottom of the issues raised regarding the 2012 election as have NDC?s President Rawlings, PPP?s Paa Kwesi Nduom, CPP?s Dr. Sakara, the PNC party, AFAG, and a host of other members of Ghana?s civil society.


The Informer should concentrate on researching and publishing credible news so that it would not have to always dump the 5,000 or so copies. We know the paper is dumped at a location close to Abosey Okai. It does not even have the decency to recycle its paper because it wants to posit that it is selling the copies that it prints. Of course with a master in government that would stop at nothing to propagate false information, the funding keeps flowing and the trash talking paper still exists. Ghana deserves better.
