- Two NDC members, Kojo Bonsu and Joshua Akamba, have had a war of words over NDC's unity walks
- Akamba allegedly accused Bonsu of using the walks for personal gain
- This was after Bonsu had declared his intention to contest as NDC's flagbearer
Information available to YEN.com.gh suggests that the founders of the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s unity walks, Kojo Bonsu and Joshua Akamba, are embroiled in a hot exchange of words.
The ‘war’, MyNewsGH.com says, is as a result of Bonsu revealing his intentions to contest as the NDC’s flagbearer in the 2020 elections.
The revelation of his intention sparked a fight with Akamba, who accused him of using the unity walks for personal gains.
Bonsu who is a former Mayor of Kumasi re-emerged on the scene in 2017, and with Akamba’s help, began organizing the walks.
Akamba heard of Bonsu’s declaration, he labelled him as a self-seeking, treacherous betrayer, revealing that the NDC unity walk was his idea but Bonsu hijacked the whole thing as it grew in popularity among NDC grassroots.
“I have been taken aback by this traitorous, self-seeking and wicked hidden Agenda by Kojo Bonsu and wish to emphatically indicate, that I, Joshua Hamidu Akamba, has absolutely nothing to do with this self-centered agenda,” Akamba wrote in a statement.
In response, Bonsu stated that the idea behind the unity walks was to push their personal ambitions, as well as win the support of the grassroots.
Mahama, he went on, was brought on board, because it was believed that his popularity will ensure the success of the idea, even though they knew he had flaws that made it bad for him to lead the NDC again.
