Ghanaians Are Clamouring For A Saviour

Is this the caricature you call your savior? Apuutaa; what did this do-nothing warmonger, disgruntled and polarizing presidential wannabe did for his constituents in 12 years and 8 years as Attorney General and Foreign Minister?

READ ON .......
1. Akuffo Addo was a leading member of NPP and practically the presidential candidate when tons of cocaine got missing from the police headquarters. Did Akuffo Addo make any comments or took any pragmatic steps to retrieve the substance or to prosecute the perpetrators? Did you ever hear your savior making any comments on such a glaring negligence, if not an act of criminal conspiracy?
2. Benjilo was a hardened drug dealer in the 1990s. That criminal was jailed and his drug-funded property in Accra confiscated. During the 8 years of NPP rule, part of which Nana Addo served as Attorney-General, Benjilo's property was deconfiscated. Did Akuffo Addo know that drug-dealing was a crime when he championed the deconfiscation of Benjilo's property?
3. Why did Akufo-Addo, as Attorney General, oversee the de-confiscation of frozen assets of Raymond Amankwah, a world reputed and renowned Cocaine Baron? And why was Raymond Amankwah roaming the world with Ghana's diplomatic passport in his backpocket?
4. Did he not know that by literally presiding over that act, a terrible example was set being set and cocaine barons all over the globe were being sent signals that the new NPP government of Ghana had no problem with the trafficking of narcotic drugs? No wonder Ghana was christened the Cocaine Coast under the Kuffuor/Akuffo Addo government.
5. Did the fact that Raymond Amankwah wis a relative of Akufo-Addo in anyway influence that decision?
7. Was Raymond Amankwah until his arrest in Brazil, not associated with Akufo-Addo's 2008 campaign?
8. Was Akufo-Addo not the Attorney General in the year 2001, when the state prosecution of Frank Benneh was suddenly discontinued?
9. Why did he so mysteriously stop a case that NDC's Deputy Attorney General, Martin Amidu prosecuted so relentlessly until NPP took over the reins of office?
10. Does Akufo-Addo know that the discontinuation of that famous case was another strong signal of his own lack of political commitment to fight the drug menace and the indication of the weakness of NPP's resolve to deal with the canker?
11. What about the three NPP Dzorwulu branch executives who were busted with narcotics at Kotoka in February 2002 when Akufo-Addo was AG?
12. Is it not interesting that under his tenure as AG, all those three women who were arrested were/are NPP drug queens just vanished into thin air? Their dockets also just disappeared like magic?
13. What did Nana Addo do about that case to send a strong and clear message to Ghana and the world that his government was dead set to punish anyone, regardless of proximity to the ruling class, who dares engage in the dangerous narcotic trafficking?
14. Was Akufo-Addo not the parliamentarian who was pushing hard for a law (described by Ghanaians as Amoateng Bill) to be passed that will essentially allow Ghanaian drug offenders, languishing in Thai jails among others to be sent back to Ghana to complete their term?
15. Does Nana Akufo-Addo still believe in the Amoateng Bill? Does he think that it will be useful to bring back to Ghana, top NPP drug financiers like Eric Amoateng and Raymond Amankwah?
16. Why does Nana Addo think that the accusation of drug addiction has never been leveled against any other leader or potential leader of his party, (Busia, Victor Owusu, Adu Boahen, J.A. Kufuor, Alan Kyeremateng) but only him? Is it just a coinage?
17. All these actions and inactions on his part, as well as the cynical role he played in the sale of the country's drillship, with its proceeds not being accounted for, discerning Ghanaians, unlike you praise singers, think that he is not qualified to be leading a nation that wants to rid itself of organized crime, violent crime and crime of all shades and corruption.

Akuffo Addict to save Ghana? Apuutaaa!
