National Organizer of the opposition NDC has said he has never considered President Akufo-Addo a serious person, refusing to apologize after being asked to.
Speaking to Afia Pokua Vim Lady on Okay FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Akamba further accused President Akufo-Addo of dishonestly deceiving Ghanaians voters for their mandate.
“Do you take Akufo-Addo serious? I have never considered Akufo-Addo a serious person.” Joshua Akamba said. When asked to withdraw the statement, he refused and said he was only assessing the president independently.
“I don’t think I am being too harsh. I am assessing the president and that’s my opinion about him. He is not a serious person. I am not the only person saying this. There are over 600,000 people out there [who don’t take the president serious]. I stopped taking the president serious from 2016.” Akamba said.
He added: “He (Akufo-Addo) came as a competent leader. He came with a mantra of being an anticorruption crusader. He said when he comes rule of law and equality before the law will work. He also came to lie to all of us that he is a human rights lawyer which is a 419.”
Joshua Akamba also said the incident of Ayawaso Wuogon bye election offers proof that Akufo-Addo is not a human rights lawyer.
“We all saw what happened at AWW. They shot people and injured them. Human rights lawyer we saw what he did at Ayawaso West Wuogon. They refused to accept the Emile Shorts Commission report recommendation. Is that a human rights lawyer. He said I have seen the report and I won’t accept it.
He came with lies and deception. Today my brother Ahmed Suale is dead and his family are crying. There is a member of parliament who has told us who killed Ahmed Suale. He is walking freely. Is that a human rights lawyer?” he asked.
