Your Demonstrations Are Useless, We Will Not Stop Saying ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’- Asiedu Nketia Mocks Akufo-Addo

Published

on


The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said that his party does not intend to stop using the nickname ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ anytime soon.

According to him, the President’s complaint to the Catholic Bishops’, expressing his dislike of the name tag also gave more flesh and drew the attention of the country to the “Akyem Sakawa Boys” comment which was reposted by former President John Dramani Mahama.

“I think that the impatience of the President to complain about it has rather escalated or re-echoed the ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ comment; he has rather spread and drew attention to the ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ comment where everyone is now talking about it”.

“If you are a teacher and your students give you a nickname and you beat them then you have established or confirmed the nickname to stay forever. So, the way the President discussed the issue with the Catholic Bishops’ and followed by demonstration have established or have made the ‘Akyem Sakawa Boys’ comment become a permanent name or a nickname,” he asserted.

He insisted that nothing can be done to avert the “Akyem Sakawa Boys” nickname as those who are demonstrating and explaining the comment are making people understand that there are “Akyem Sakawa Boys” in the country.

He was of the view that the issue would have died naturally if the President had not complained his frustration about the name given to those Akyem people who are involved in the Agyapa Royalty deal, toppled with a demonstration.

Mahama’s Statement On Mortuaries For Zongos Has Been Distorted, Ignore False Claims – NDC Campaign Team

Published

on


The Campaign Team of the Opposition National Democratic Congress for the 2020 Elections has clarified it’s position on claims making round that the Party intends to construct Mortuaries in Zongo Communities when given the nod in December.

In a statement, the campaign team of John Mahama described the publications as false, misleading and a deliberate attempt to whip-up anti-Muslim sentiments against the NDC and the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign.

Below is the full statement by the campaign team of Mr Mahama

2020 ELECTIONS: MAHAMA PROMISES MORE MORTUARIES FOR ZONGO COMMUNITIES

The attention of the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign has been drawn to a false, misleading and inaccurate claims in publications carried by sections of the online media titiled “2020 elections: Mahama promises more mortuaries for Zongo communities”.

For the records, the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, during a live interview with TV XYZ and Woezor TV, took the opportunity to highlight his party’s proposed interventions in the People’s Manifesto for Zongos and Deprived Urban Settlements.

Reading from page 82 of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto, Mr Mahama mentioned a number of interventions aimed at addressing “the historical inequalities between Zongo, Deprived Urban Settlements and other communities, including the negative effects of the Alien Compliance Order implemented by the Danquah-Busia tradition on Zongos”.

Acknowledging the concerns of Muslims about how traditional mortuaries handle their beloved ones when they pass on, Mr Mahama quoted the specific section of the People’s Manifesto which addresses the issue and aims at lessening the burden of bereaved Muslims by treating their deceased loved ones in line with accepted practices of the Islamic faith.

“So a lot of the Muslim communities have not been happy. And so we say ‘we will facilitate the establishment of mortuaries in accordance with Islamic custom and practices and collaborate with the Ministry of Health to set up focal teams responsible for procedures that are compliant with Islamic custom and practice at all public mortuaries’ ”, he quoted.

For the avoidance of doubt, the said publication is mischievous, deliberately distorted and calculated to whip-up anti-Muslim sentiments against the NDC and the JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign.

Muslims,in particular, and the general public are therefore entreated to disregard that offensive publication by treating it with the contempt it deserves.
