The Chief Executive of the Ghana Free Zones Board, Kojo Twum Boafo has pooh-poohed Nana Akufo-Addo’s decision to contest the New Patriotic Party (NPP’s) flagbearership primaries and possibly the 2016 Presidential Elections saying the NPP stalward is a pale shadow of his former self.
He considers Nana Addo’s declaration to lead the NPP for the third time as an affront to the integrity of Ghanaians.
He explained on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji programme that the twice-defeated NPP Presidential hopeful has nothing good to offer Ghanaians.
According to him, by virtue of Nana Addo’s decision to “disenfranchise” millions of Ghanaians when he petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the votes cast for President John Dramani Mahama, he has betrayed the confidence that the electorates reposed in him.
The 2008 and 2012 NPP flagbearer, on Thursday, March 20 2014, confirmed his return to frontline politics. He indicated that he would contest the flagbearership position when nomination opens.
Describing Nana Addo as a “strident and arrogant” political figure, Kojo Twum Boafo averred that he (Nana Addo) is not ready to learn anything even at the age of 70 and also questioned the logic in the media reports on Nana Addo’s comeback into frontline politics in Ghana.
“What kind of joke is this? At a time when we live in a country where we need to push an agenda to develop this country, this is what the media is reporting. And they really want to tell us that they didn’t know that this is what he was going to do?
“…Nana Addo has not learnt anything and he will never learn anything because you cannot expect anybody who is as strident and as arrogant as he is to learn anything at 70,” Kojo Twum Boafo.
