The Chiefs and people of the three Akyem states, Abuakwa, Kotoku and Bosome have issued a one-week ultimatum to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, to retract and apologise to Akyems for the “Akyem Sakawa Boys” tag or be banned from campaigning on any Akyem land.
To the Akyem natives who took to the streets of Asamankese to demonstrate today, September 9, 2020, such ethnocentric statements from the former president and his party folks can throw the nation into chaos if not condemned by all Ghanaians.
Archibald Ntiriakwa, the president of Okyeman Youth Association and one of the convenors of the demonstration called on Mr. Mahama to retract and apologise in his own interest.
The Anum Asokwahene, Barima Asuokwasi Mensah Bediako Ill, also gave the former President and the NDC an ultimatum apologise or be banned from campaigning on Akyem lands.
“We are all one before individuals… we don’t want politics that emphasises our differences and where we come from.”
“We are not doing politics here. What is paining me is that the Chairman of the NDC is from Akyem land,” the Anum Asokwahene stated.
