The immediate past Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Free Zones Board, Kwadwo Twum Boafo has for the first time admitted peddling falsehood about then candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo now president of the country.
Mr Twum Boafo is reported to have described then flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as a violent thug, who wants to be president of this country at all cost.
“I will say it again that this country is on a precipice, that we have a violent thug, who wants to be president of this country at all cost. We have a man who absolutely has no campaign message, who is now begging to be voted for. Ghanaians should never make up their mind to vote for an unforgiving individual, causing all the mess in the country just for his personal interest to become the president of this land.”
“I have faith in the Ghanaian people that they would never vote into power such a man who has on three (3) occasions within his own party and twice from the Ghanaian people lost elections due to his lack of respect….”He was reported to have stated on Radio Gold Alhaji and Alhaji.
But on State of Affairs on GHOne on Wednesday, he said, “I don’t want to go back to the history of Nana Addo. All the things I said about him were a strategy. I am proud of Nana Addo for a reason….he has suffered and tried very hard to be President.
Four decades is not a joke. He needs to be given the chance to succeed. We need to give him the necessary support and respect to succeed. As I am talking to you, I am jobless. So if Nana Addo succeed and I get a job again, I will be happy”
