A Deputy National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba says his reason for relocating to another country following the victory of President Nana Akufo-Addo in 2016 was to stay and fight the lawlessness under the ruling government.
In 2016 the fierce critic of President Nana Akufo-Addo prophesied that the presidency of the latter would be characterized with lawlessness and impunity.
In an interview with Rainbow Radio in 2016, the Deputy Organizer promised to relocate his family because President Akufo-Addo will unleash terror on Ghanaians under his rule.
However, after nine months Nana Addo was declared winner and sworn in, he [Akamba] has not relocated as promised.
When asked by Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm why he has failed to honour his promise he said, I stayed because I wanted to fight Nana Addo’s lawlessness.
He said, you remember I told you Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, would unleash a reign of terror on Ghanaians if handed the keys to the Flagstaff House on December 7. Has he not done that? Have we not witnessed the lawlessness of the Delta and Invisible Forces? The number of robbery cases recorded under this current government affirms my position held in 2016 that he [Nana Addo] would unleash on us terror.’’
‘’I promised to relocate my family should Nana Addo win but upon a second thought I decided to stay back and fight and that is what I did. We have been able to maintain peace in the country,’’ he added.
