Stranded presidential nominee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo and his entourage were after several hours of waiting at Dambai in the Volta region, ferried to Krachi.Nana Akufo-Addo and his campaign team were due to visit Krachi Nchumuru and Krachi West constituencies to continue with his campaign tour of the Volta region but on arriving at the bank of the river was told the ferry was at the other end.
Operators of the ferry claimed a truck which was moving onto the ferry skidded and partially plunged into the river, making it impossible for the ferry to move, unless the truck is towed.
However, some NPP officials suspected a sabotage on the part of the Volta regional minister Helen Ntoso who is also MP for Krachi West.
The Volta Regional vice chairman of the NPP Dr. Archibald Letsa said the campaign team is “behind schedule” but remains undaunted with the development.
“We don’t know what is going on because this is not the first time. It happened to Kufuor in 1996 and happened to us in 2012,” Dr. Letsa opined.
But luck later smiled on Nana and his team when the ferry showed up and conveyed them to their destination.
