The deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has warned the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo that he will be jailed if “he tries anything funny.”
According to Anyidoho, no one is bigger than Ghana and Ghanaians must not allow an individual or a group of people to derail the peace of the country.
“Just because one man wants to be president, Ghana should burn if he doesn’t get what he wants, he should make a move and see what will happen to him, Nana Addo will find himself in the cells if he tries anything funny… we are keeping a close eye on him,” Anyidoho told Accra-based Rainbow Radio.
The NDC executive was reacting to Nana Addo’s assertion over the weekend that if he was violent he would have caused Ghana to burn after the 2012 election result.
Anyidoho claimed Nana Addo is building a “war machine” with the aim of plunging the country into war when he loses the 2016 elections. He stressed the former Foreign Affairs Minister “knows the reality and is struggling to accept what is awaiting him, hence the decision to import mercenaries to cause mayhem.”
Mr. Anyidoho who spoke on several other radio stations on Tuesday accused Nana Addo of trying to cover up after he had been “exposed” following the arrest and deportation of the three South African ex-police men who were brought into Ghana by the NPP to train its private security.
“Nana Addo cannot dissociate himself from NPP-sponsored violence because he belongs to a party that has a history of violence, but thank God he and his NPP have been exposed,” Anyidoho told Adom FM in a separate interview.
“If today Akufo-Addo is importing mercenaries in connection and conjunction with the Danquah Institute and Capt. Koda, who doesn’t know Capt Koda and his attempted coup, broke jail, went into exile, came back when amnesty was granted, why won’t I be careful and alarmed?” Mr Anyidoho asked.
