Ofosu-Ampofo Jumps To The Defense of Mahama; Insists Akyems Were Not Insulted



Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has defended flagbearer of the party, John Dramani Mahama after continued pressure on him to apologise for his association with the ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ comment.

He noted that the accusations and demonstrations by some supposed Akyem groups are attempts under the influence of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to divert attention from the kind of earthshaking effect the NDC’S ‘The People’s Manifesto’ has brought.

“If somebody puts up a post and refers to a group within government pursuing something and the person speaks about them, I don’t see why the whole Akyem community will appropriate it to themselves and decide to go and demonstrate,” Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo said at a training programme in Accra for lawyers and other NDC members on electoral laws ahead of the December 7 polls.”

According to him, the recent demonstration by some Akyems is to “divert attention from our manifesto and the kind of earthshaking effect that it has brought to the government. Otherwise I don’t think anybody has insulted the people of Akyem.”
