The Volta Region branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has explained that the holding up of the NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his campaign team for almost three hours on the banks of the River Oti in Dambai was not a sabotage but a mere coincidence.
The regional secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Makafui Kofi Wanya, who was part of the campaign team, says there was nothing like a sabotage in what happened since it was realized that the truck carrying tubers of yam was stuck on the ferry that was to transport him.
The NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, and his campaign team on the tour of the Volta Region were held up for almost three hours on the banks of the River Oti in Dambai on Tuesday.
Nana Akufo-Addo was crossing the Oti River to Krachi Nchumuru on Tuesday when it emerged that a truck carrying tubers of yam was stuck on the ferry that was to transport him. The captain of ferry and his team together with some NPP youth around took about three hours to move the truck off the boat to enable Nana Akufo-Addo and his team to their destination.
The NPP Regional Secretary, Makafui Kofi Wanya told Onua FM’s Ghana Dadwene that they have successfully resumed the tour to that side of the Region. He explained that the holdup could affect the schedule of the team but that will not deter them from campaigning.
