Cut Off My Head If NPP’s Votes In Ashanti Region Does Not Reduce In Gargantuan Proportions – Prophet Declares

Published

on


Prophet Johnson Adu Boahen, the host of ‘Ogyie Mmere’ on Accra-based Angel 102.9 FM, has made a shocking and bold declaration that his head should be cut off if the NPP’s votes in it’s ‘world bank’, the Ashanti Region does not reduce in gargantuan proportions.

According to the Prophet, who claims to have done the majority of the spiritual work that ushered the NPP into government in 2016, the revelation he has received from God concerning this year’s election is quite different.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Angel 96.1 FM, the Prophet claimed that the current happenings in the Spiritual realm do not in any way favour the ruling Party.

The Prophet also claimed that he had a vision in which he saw a man nicely adorned with NPP colours, and with a massive following suddenly turning into a goat after his followers had asked him to remove his face covering.

According to him, in his vision, the large following disappeared immediately the nicely dressed man in NPP apparel turned into a goat.

Explaining the meaning of the vision, the Prophet narrated that the people in the Ashanti Region will for the first time refrain from voting for the NPP in a manner that will ensure that the ruling party will lose votes in epic proportions.

Stop Wasting Your Votes On NPP And Nana Addo – Asanteman Told

Published

on


Known NDC loyalist and 3Music CEO, Sadiq Abdulai Abu has asked the people of the Ashanti Region to start looking beyond the NPP for developments.

The entertainment critic in a post on twitter challenged his followers to lead him to one project that President Nana Addo and the NPP has done for Asanteman in the last three and half years.

He stated in his post that all the President did in his recent visit to the Ashanti Region was to commission projects by the erstwhile Mahama government.

“So wait oh, aside commissioning JM’s projects in Ashanti Region, Nana Addo doesn’t have a single “full” project in Ashanti Region. So what exactly did Nana Addo for Asanteman?

Can anybody point to me 1 significant infrastructure Nana Addo initiated, designed, sought funding and completed for Asanteman? Asanteman need to stop wasting their votes on the NPP”, Sadiq wrote on twitter.
