Felix Ofosu Kwakye, member of the Communications Team of the ruling National Democratic Congress
A member of the Communications Team of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has flayed a leading member of the re-constituted National Peace Council Board accusing him of serving the interest of the opposition New Patriotic Party and indulging in “political gymnastics’.

Felix Ofosu Kwakye posits that “people like" Maulvi Wahab, Ameer and Missionary In-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana, have lost their neutrality adding that the NDC is used to “walking alone” and does not need any allies like him to state their case for them.

Maulvi Wahab Adam is said to have expressed disquiet over Director of Communications at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho’s recent stern warning to the rank and file of the opposition NPP, especially its flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, former National and current Chairmen of the NPP, Peter Mac Manu and Jake Obestebe Lamptey not to attempt to perpetrate violence in the 2012 general elections, or they will be shown “where power lies”.

The renowned Muslim cleric on Friday described Mr Anyidoho’s comments as “unfortunate”, most especially from someone regarded as the mouthpiece of President Mills in an interview on Accra-based commercial radio station, Joy FM.

“People in high office have to be circumspect with their comments… If it’s coming from him [Anyidoho] then it’s unfortunate,” Maulvi Wahab Adam said.

But contributing to discussions on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji on Saturday, Felix Kwakye-Ofosu cautioned that it is high time people belonging to the country’s moral society know better and avoid engaging in ‘political gymnastics’ just to score points for the NPP, adding; ‘we are not impressed.’

“…the only thing that is unfortunate is Maulvi Wahab failure to live above reproach in terms of being a neutral person…ethnic sentiments were whipped up by the leader of the New Patriotic Party; Maulvi Wahab Adams was nowhere to be heard…we in the NDC are used to walking alone. We don’t make pretenses about allies; persons who claims to be neutral but are not. Our only allies are the people of Ghana and so we don’t need any allies like Maulvi Wahab to make our case… People like him can no longer be neutral and I think that he is serving an NPP interest…They are allies of the NPP and I don’t take them serious any longer,” he said.

Ken Agyapong, NPP MP Assin North
Felix’s comment also comes in the wake of threats by the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong that the country will be turned into “Rwanda” if the NDC attempts rigging the 2012 elections.

Speaking to the issue on the Laterbiokorshie-based radio station, the NDC’s Communications Team member said he has never held the NPP MP in high regard ever since he became a legislator because he has failed to justify the confidence reposed in him by the Assin North constituents.

“Everything he (Kennedy) says borders on how much money he has and how much money someone lacks. He has failed to justify the confidence that the people of Assin North bestowed on him and I think that it is an embarrassment that such a character is in our parliament. Look at his utterances and I think that that body (parliament) needs to be reserved for serious minds…What is the evidence that the NDC is trying to rig the election? We will not sit down for all the things that has been done over the years to be undone just because a desperate man wants to come into power,” Kwakye-Ofosu added.
