Odike cons ex party chair to rejoin
Founder of the United People’s Party (UPP), Akwasi Addae Odike, has been caught in another web of controversy after a secret audio tape recording revealed the Kumasi-based business tycoon trying to con the party’s Central Regional Chairman, one Gideon who has defected to rejoin.
Odike was also heard on the audio tape recording, a copy of which is in possession of Kasapafmonline.com, bragging and making wild allegations about his source of funding from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), a party he claims has been very loyal in financing all his activities.
His detractors, he argued, have on numerous occasions tried to block him from receiving funds from the NDC but each time they make the move, “it backfires”.
“Gideon I have walked with you for so many years so I am pleading with you to rescind your decision and come back. I am only advising you because you are my younger brother. I don’t have any problem with you at all. Come and let us work together”.
“Do you think that John Mahama is dim-witted and will come and give you guys money when Odike is not part of the team? If you like go and bring the Pope on board the party, it will never work. I am the only one they know”.
“They’ve gone to Asiedu Nketia and others but it didn’t work. When the money is ready, I am the one that they will call. Tell Razak that enough is enough and come back”.
“Gideon, I like you so much so change your mind and come and let us work together. This is the time that we are going to make money so come on board. They will soon send us some money so go and tell them that you have rescinded your mind and come and let us work together”.
“They have not brought us any money. I swear to God. I can’t do that. You know that I, as your father, am a show boy when I have money. So come and let us work. Razak will not give you money so come back”.
