The opposition leader for United Progressive Party (UPP) has heavily castigated the sitting President of Ghana for deploying armed military personnel to the Volta part of the country.
Mr. Akwasi Addai Odike has condemned the action and has underlined that the blatant refusal on the part of the President of Ghana to heed to the call for a withdrawal will eventually heighten the friction between Asantes and Voltarians.
Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa Hon K.T Hammond according to a report carried by ghanaweb claimed last week that the deployment is to check foreigners in Togo from entering Ghana to register in the voters registration exercise which kick-started on Tuesday.
However, Mr. Akwasi Addai Odike, National Chairman, Founder and leader for UPP rubbished the statement.
He said on Abusua Fm on Monday as scooped by www.leakynews.net that there is no sense in sending out another group of soldiers when Volta region already has an existing military complex.
“…The core mandate of the military is to protect the citizenry against external aggression and after all there is no war between us and Togo”, he told listeners.
The die-hard opposition leader described the above decision as a foul tactics employed by the ruling President His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, aimed at sustaining him in power for a second term. “He wants to use ‘buga-buga’ to win the elections…Where lies your (Ghana President) battle is the Lord’s mantra”.
The businessman cum politician said on the airwaves that the political idiosyncrasies of the sitting presidents portray the fact that his anticipation for another political power is too high.
“When your anticipation is too high, your downfall will be great. President Akuffo Addo’s anticipation for victory in the upcoming December 2020 presidential elections is too and therefore his downfall will be too great”, he announced philosophically.
“Every moment he provokes Ghanaians with his crooked style of leadership… The love that Ghanaians had for him is wearing out due to his bad organizational behavior”, the outspoken opposition leader Mr. Odike noted.
