The chiefs of three traditional councils in the Asuogyaman constituency of the Eastern region have threatened to use black magic to keep Nana Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, from the ballot paper on December 7.
The chiefs from Akwamu, Anum and Boso made the threat as they endorsed President John Mahama, who they say has undertaken massive developmental projects, for a second term.
A report by starrfmonline.com quoted the acting president of the Akwamu Traditional Council, Osuogyasonu Yaw Boadu I, as saying at a mini rally at Akosombo that they would soon perform sacred rituals for the image of Akufo-Addo and his name to disappear from the ballot paper on December 7.
“During this ritual, what we do in the stool house and at the palace is to take stock of the good things happening in the nation and ask the nation to continue.
“We then find a way of remedying the bad ones. And so Akwamuman, Anumman, Bosoman and the entire Asuogyaman say ‘JM Toaso’," he said.
