Having read dossiers about qualities of leadership, one critical virtue that is required of every leader is Honesty and Sincerity. The longest serving flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party is widely believed among his core supporters to be a good President in the nigh future based on his overhyped qualities, his rendition of the Queens language and his overly multi-colored CV. Admittedly, had it not been His Ever Excellency President JA Kufuor who gave Nana Akufo-Addo limelight by appointing him as Attorney General and Justice Minister as well as Foreign minister, Nana Akufo-Addo would have remained and only known as an EXTREME AGITATOR/ KUME PREKO DEMONSTRATOR. Undoubtedly, Lawyer Prempeh and Lawyer Fui Tsikata were the tallest and finest shoulders on which Nana Akufo-Addo rode, earning him the title 'Lawyer' Nana Akufo-Addo.
Let me bother you, the reader, with some instances which happened in recent times within Akufo-Addo's NPP for you to contrast and make judicious conclusions on, as to whether Nana Akufo-Addo can be a Sincere and an Honest President. Having worked with National chairman Mr Paul Afoko coupled with the series of meetings Nana Akufo-Addo has held with the National Chairman of the NPP, Mr Paul Afoko in the last 18 months or more, Nana Akufo-Addo in his clearest of conscience and sound mind, declared in an exclusive interview with Paul Adom Okyere of Metro TV Good evening Ghana flagship that
"I don't know Paul Afoko" - Nana Akufo-Addo
This is a Man; Nana Akufo-Addo has sat next to in Tens of Steering Committee meetings, innumerable NEC meetings, several National Council Meetings, and multitudinous private meetings often held at the precinct of Madam Ama Busia and Felix Owusu Agyapong.
Interestingly, during the times that National Chairman Paul Afoko was abused, attacked verbally and physically, bruised with insults, ugly machinations, untidy News sources such as the Daily Guide, and Mercenary and falsely decorated Senior Journalists such as Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr; some elders prevailed on Chairman Paul Afoko to keep quite let go everything . Today, I asked, as he kept his mouth shut and let go of everything, what has happened to Chairman Paul Afoko?
From everything in my bone, religion, and moral upbringing, I sincerely believe this is the time; the duly elected NPP National Chairman Mr Paul Afoko must speak loudly. The most successful and accomplished Business Man and owner of the plush Kempinski Gold Coast hotel, one among the five (5) finest Africa hotels, situated on the 34-acre land in the Centre of the Capital Accra, Mr Paul Awentami Afoko must speak every truth to the whole world in order to redeem his bruised political image. Stephanie Klein in her book Straight Up and Dirty posited, "Tell the truth or someone will tell it for you."
In an exclusive interview, filled with an elaborate, convincing, and sincere truth, the NPP National Chairman Paul Afoko revealed some compelling and impressive facts. Read below some relatively few excerpts from the Kwesi Pratt's Hot Issues interview:
'Suffice to say, our Presidential Candidate, OUR Presidential candidate, cannot say I don't support him. He knows how much support I have given him personally. Personally, he knows, and you can ask him whenever you get the opportunity, whether I have ever given him support, personally or not...And I have lots of witnesses to the quantum of supports I have given him... That is personal... without talking about what I have done across the country especially in the three Northern Regions. What I did in other to ensure that we won 2008, which did not happen, and then 2012 I did it again.
Look, I tell you something. There was one night; I think it was around 1:00 am... on the night of the voting in 2012. I got a phone call from the Presidential Candidate. At that time, at 1:00 am where I was eating my lunch. It was a back lunch, just behind Navrongo Hospital; I was eating in the car, and to continue towards SANDEMA... because I had gone towards GAWO area. And I got a call from the Presidential candidate, Nana Addo saying Paul. He used to call me Paul then. Paul, I hear you are actually doing tremendous work out there, Thank you very much. You are not even sleeping at this time. And I just said, Oh! Nana, why would I be sleeping, at this time; we have work to do. You are doing yours in Accra and I am doing mine here. By the way, you are not sleeping yourself...You are awake. Then he LAUGHED. I mean I am just giving you examples of the support I have given, 2012! 2012 support!"
As Allah says to us in the Glorious Al Qur'an 2:42 " And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]."
NPP National Chairman Paul Afoko, Respectfully, do not conceal the truths you know from us- victims of the oppressors rule in the NPP
May God guide Nana Akufo-Addo
Long live NPP National Chairman Paul Afoko
Long live His Ever Excellency Peerless JA Kufuor
Long live the NPP
