North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said former Attorney General Martin Amidu “got it totally wrong” by confusing him (Ablakwa) with one Andrews Krow, who has owned up to writing some critical articles of the Citizen Vigilante – the basis for which the anti-corruption crusader has been launching attacks on him (Ablakwa) for the past few days.
Despite Mr Ablakwa’s several denials of authorship of the said articles and the owning up of Mr Krow to having written the articles, Mr Amidu has refused to budge insisting the lawmaker uses ‘Andrews Krow’ as his pseudonym.
Issuing a third denial on the matter following Mr Amidu’s third article on the same issue, Mr Ablakwa said: “I have become aware of yet another publication from the Hon. Martin A.B.K. Amidu under the caption: ‘Stop lying in God's name Hon. Ablakwa’ in which he compares me to Paul Joseph Goebbels and refers to me as an endemic liar insisting that Andrews Krow (aka Ohenenana Obonti Krow) is my ‘long-dependent pseudonym.’”
“The stark reality, however, is that no matter the preponderance of insults and defamatory name-calling heaped on me as high as Afadjato, as it pleases you sir; from my being cursed, uncouth, uncultured, dishonourable and now a Goebbelian endemic liar, it cannot change the sacrosanct fact that Andrews Krow is neither a literary creation nor a surrogate but an NDC communicator well-known to the rank and file of the NDC for many years and who has publicly and boldly owned up to the articles that formed the unjustified basis for your unabated atrocious attacks on me.
“Respectfully, despite the obvious fact that you got it totally wrong in launching an unwarranted and unprovoked pernicious attack on my person, you have chosen to continue to use me as a convenient punching bag for even more high velocity abuse.
“This notwithstanding, I shall bear no grudge towards you, and I pray that the good Lord will never permit what you have subjected me to, to ever befall your children whom you describe as my peers.
“May I take this opportunity, while expressing my appreciation, appeal to my beloved constituents in North Tongu, the NDC in the Volta Region and other well-meaning party members across the country who jumped to my defence to hold their horses and reserve all energies for the party reorganisation task that lies ahead of us.
“It is time to renew our confidence in Exodus 14:14 – ‘The Lord shall fight for us and we shall hold our peace.’ Truth has triumphed! God bless you all. I shall write no more on this matter.”
