Director of Communications of the National Democratic Congress, Kakra Essamuah has in an open letter to President Akufo-Addo stated that he is the very essence of a “sore loser”, after his recent reference to John Dramani Mahama, as a “poor, desperate loser”.
This response comes on the back of certain comments president Akufo-Addo made in the Volta Region on caution Mahama gave to some Ghanaians of the Electoral Commission's reason to compile a new register of voters ahead of the 7 December 2020 general elections.
Mr Essamuah, in a statement, said if anybody epitomized sour losers, it would be President Akufo-Addo.
He added that the president would be a perfect fit because his defeat in the 2012 general elections “heralded, perhaps, the darkest phase of Fourth Republican politics when President Akufo-Addo sowed seeds of violence and militancy in his party”.
“If ever evidence existed of a sour loser, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would be a prime example”, the party said, adding: “No other political leader has behaved in the manner he did over those two electoral cycles,” the statement noted.
Again the NDC said, Akufo-Addo was heard, inciting the NPP youth to engage in violence during the Atewa by-election and insisting that it would be the approach for the 2012 elections”.
Through incendiary and violent rhetoric, he inspired members of his party to resort to violence as a means of resolving disputes. It was within this period that he uttered those words, which have gone down in infamy: ‘All-die-be-die’.
In other news, Founder and leader of the Glorious Wave Church, Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi has said that President Akufo-Addo is the worst President Ghana has ever had.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, on Nkonkonsa, the pastor, who is believed to have been delivering his speech, made this known.
The preacher who has made it an open secret not to be on good terms with Akufo-Addo and his government openly jabbed the sitting president while delivering his sermon.
