The immediate boss of NDC’s Deputy General Secretary Koku Ayidoho, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has disowned Koku Ayidoho’s remark of leading civil coup d’états against President Akufo-Addo’s government.

Speaking on Happy FM, the loud-mouthed former Director of Communication at the Presidency said the opposition party NDC will serve Akufo-Addo a bitter version of his own medicine.

He said the history of Akufo-Addo’s father was deposed in a coup d’état will repeat itself because history has a way of doing it.

“On January 13, 1972 a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power. Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.” Koku said.

“There’ll be a civil revolt. There’ll be a people’s movement. During President John Mahama’s tenure didn’t we receive similar threats from the likes of Let My Vote Count and OccupyGhana,” Koku said on Happy FM.

“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etat; there’ll be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up at the Presidency.”

But the NDC General Secretary Asiedu Nketia has asked Ghanaians to rubbish Koku’s statement as it doesn’t represent the NDC position.

Speaking on Starr FM this morning, he said:

“The NDC party has a way of making information from the party known to the public. What Koku Anyidoho said is his opinion and not the position of the NDC party. Koku Anyidoho did not speak on behalf of the NDC as a party. He expressed as an opinion. Those are the words of Koku Anyidoho…he didn’t speak on behalf of the NDC”
