Akufo-Addo On A Calculated Mission

To Crush Votes in Upper East

August 19, 2013

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the man who has never won any credible national elections in the country, is on a suicide mission aimed at causing havoc and misery at all the regional polling stations in the country.

For your information, Akufo-Addo’s misery bus just zoomed into the Upper East Region and word has it that he is looking to crush 121,041 valid votes cast in the region by Ghanaians, who like him, have the constitutional mandated right to vote.

The Upper East Region has 1,136 polling stations with 15 constituencies. But can you believe that Akufo-Addo’s selective cut and paste strategy has again compelled him to challenge valid votes cast in 332 polling stations in the Upper East Region?

Incredibly, all the 332 polling stations Akufo-Addo is hunting down were won by President John Mahama. Not a single polling station being contested by Akufo-Addo was won by him.

Interestingly, we have 1,136 polling stations in the Upper East Region. And majority of the polling stations Akufo-Addo has left untouched have some of the same administrative errors which drove him to the Supreme Court (SC), but because the votes he won in those polling stations were sizeable, he deliberately left them out.

Again, this is the mark of a desperate desperado who even before the final determination of the SC petition case has started forming his disillusion cabinet.

The Upper East Region has 10 big constituencies, but unfortunately they have become the target of Akufo-Addo’s diabolic mission. Voters in these 10 constituencies are bound to suffer as their valid votes will be tossed into the huge garbage truck sitting behind Akufo-Addo’s residence at Nima in Accra if the SC agrees with his bogus allegations.

The 10 constituencies are Bolgatanga Central (18,117), Zebilla (15,219), Chiana Paga (11,992), Bongo (10,459), Navrongo Central (9,318), Talensi (9,097), Tempane (7,811), Pussiga (7,406), Bawku Central (6,266) and Binduri (5,369).

The above 10 constituencies’ command 101,054 (83.5%) of the total votes that Akufo-Addo wants to steal from valid voters in the Upper East Region. And can you believe that this serious crime does not bother Akufo-Addo because none of the polling stations that he is contesting in court were won by him.

I urge the 121,041 valid voters in the Upper East Region to shine their eyes because Akufo-Addo does not believe you are human enough to vote in this country. Perhaps, Akufo-Addo believes that since you did not vote for him, your votes must as well qualify for a garbage heap hence his over-zealous quest to crush your votes.
