- An NPP man believes Akua Blakofe is on a mission to campaign against the NPP government
- He says Blakofe is currently annoying some top NPP members with her social media posts
A top member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has opened up on social media utterances of Akua Blakofe, the resigned deputy CEO of the Ghana Tourism Development Company.
According to Mr Otchere-Darko, Akua Blakofe’s post-resignation media outburst is becoming unnerving and annoying to some officials of the governing party.
The Danquah Institute founder’s anger follows claims by Madam Akua Blakofe that she no longer feels safe in Ghana, since her life is under threat for wanting to do the right thing under the NPP government.
The deputy CEO who tendered her resignation two weeks ago, over what she described as massive corruption at GTDC, disclosed in a Facebook post that she has been targeted for elimination by some faceless people.
Blakofe in her social media comment further warned that should she be found dead, it would be because she stood for the truth under the NPP government.
“We woke up one morning to news that Fennec had been murdered. We woke to news JB Danquah had been murdered. We woke up to news about the young bank worker who was murdered. These are just 3 examples. Till date, no real concrete suspects have been dealt with. We don't know what issues they had,” Blakofe posted.
She further added that, “I'm putting all my issues out on social media so if you wake to the news that I've been murdered or dead all of a sudden, you have a clue where to begin investigations. I really don't see why we should get to this level. It means I'm speaking the truth and they need to get rid of me. I weep for Ghana. Truly it's an Asylum.”
However, Blakofe’s latest controversial Facebook posts appear to have angered the founder of Danquah Institute who feels she could be a mole in the NPP.
Gabby in response insisted that he first admired Blakofe’s courage to have resigned as a matter of principle.
However, he now believe the former NPP appointee has some sinister agenda and now staging campaign against the NPP government that recognized and rewarded her, “these are some of the little things that annoy NPP folks right off. You joined the campaign at the very end. You were first seen to be pro-Mahama, but apparently fell out over what exactly we don’t know. The leadership acknowledged your campaign contribution and your value and rewarded you with an appointment to help your country."
The NPP man in his response maintained that, “You resigned on principle and, in fact, won a lot of admiration (from me and many others) for that. But, now it seems like you want to start a whole negative campaign against the government. Who would want to kill you, Madam? Let’s get serious! Frankly, your utterances are getting annoying and making people feel that you have a more sinister motive. I hope not”.
