Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and ardent backer of Nana Akufo Addo has asked the camp of Alan Kyerematen, another Presidential aspirant to stop crying foul over the massive endorsement going the way of the two-time presidential candidate since he [Nana] is the best commodity for Ghana.
According to Sir John as he is known in political circles, it is out of desperation from the camp of Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen to attribute the massive support Nana Akufo Addo is enjoying to monetary influence.
Speaking on Okay Fm’s Ade Akye Abia morning Show, Sir John said that the massive endorsement for Nana Akufo Addo simply means that he [Nana Addo] is the best commodity in NPP that will attract votes from Ghanaians having realized Nana Addo-Bawumia Presidency will alleviate the citizenry from poverty.
Debunking the statement from the Alan Camp, Sir John wondered how Nana Akufo Addo could have used money to influence all the supporters in the party especially when team Alan had said Nana Addo does not have money for his campaign.
He however alleged that it was rather the camp of Alan dashing out monies to influence the delegates as it was done during the Super Delegates Congress but got disappointed with the results he [Alan] pulled.
“Why is a grown up like Alan crying like a baby? If it is not going on well, it will certainly not end well. Who is Akufo Addo buying….where are the people and how many are they? Akufo Addo is the best commodity that attracts a lot of prices and he does not need to buy anybody to vote for him. Ghanaians have realized and said that without Nana Addo, they won’t vote for NPP….my brothers should go to the grassroots if indeed they have the support of the polling stations and they will know that without Nana, people are not willing to vote for NPP,” he opined.
He further revealed that the delegates have threatened to vote out the NPP MPs should any of them refuse the Presidential candidature of Nana Akufo Addo in the October 18 Congress.
