A member of the National Peace Council, Maulvi Wahab Adam, is not happy with the comments that emanated from the Communications Director at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho, which threatened to show the main opposition “where power lies”.
Anyidoho told a London-based news network, Focus radio that the government will deal with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer if he dares incite his supporters to engage in electoral violence next year.
“I am saying it today that Akufo-Addo should dare,” Anyidoho charged. “I know Gabby [Otchere-Darko] is in London and listening. Gabby you are my friend and I’m telling you that you and that your Akufo-Addo, if you claim to be men, make a wrong move in this country and you will see where power lies. We are waiting for them since they say ‘all die be die’. ”
But Maulvi Adam, who is also the Ameer and Missionary In-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana, told an Accra-based radio station Joy FM on Friday that such comments are “unfortunate” especially when it comes from someone who speaks on behalf of the president. “People in high office have to be circumspect with their comments… If it’s coming from him [Anyidoho] then it’s unfortunate,” the Ameer said. “This is likely to bring a state of disorder. ”
He admonished the presidential spokesperson including all government appointees to be mindful of their utterances since misguided statements have high potential to “plunge the country into chaos."
