- The NDC communicator says Koku doesn't understand his coup comments in Akan language
- Solomon Nkansah says Anyidoho speaks Twi as an Ewe but doesn't fully understand his utterances
A top member of the National Democratic Congress' (NDC), Communications team, has disclosed that Koku Anyidoho is not an Akan and therefore does not know the intensity of his coup comment.
According to Solomon Nkansah, the deputy General Secretary of the NDC is an Ewe and does not really understand the Akan language and the full implications of some of his utterances.
Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM, the NDC man insisted that the NDC party believes in democracy and will capitalize on Koku’s arrest to campaign against the governing NPP ahead of the 2020 elections.
“Koku is Ewe, although he speaks and understands the Akan dialect to some extent, he doesn’t understand it fully. If it had been me, Solomon Nkansah, an Akan, asked that question, I wouldn’t have approached it the way he did. If the interview had been done in English, I don’t think he would have spoken this way,” he said.
The NDC communicator in his analysis added that, “the NDC won’t stage any coup against Akufo-Addo’s government, we will campaign against the government ahead of the 2020 elections, Koku doesn’t have the capacity to stage a coup in this country. NDC won’t stage a coup, we believe in democracy and we will campaign against the NPP government.”
Mr Nkansah’s comments come on the heels of the arrest of the top NDC man, Koku Anyidoho, who has been charged with treason for threatening on live radio to stage coup d’etat to topple the Akufo-Addo administration.
Koku in his wild comments told Happy FM on Monday, 26 March that Someone must alert President Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.
“On January 13, 1972 a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself..."
“There’ll be a civil revolt. There’ll be a people’s movement. During President John Mahama’s tenure didn’t we receive similar threats from the likes of Let My Vote Count and OccupyGhana,” Koku said.
“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etat; there’ll be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up at the presidency,” Mr Anyidoho added.
