The NDC Media Analysts Group has launched a barrage of criticisms against the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo.
The group says the NPP flag-bearer is not fit to be president of Ghana.
According to them, issues of drug addiction as well as his daughter’s drunk driving that occurred two months ago are enough reasons for his inability to govern the nation.
The spokesperson of the group, Peter Quarshie claimed that some NPP functionaries in the lead up to the party’s 2007 delegates’ conference, circulated text messages that called into question, Nana Akufo-Addo’s moral sanctity.
He said if Nana’s fitness for the leadership of the NPP was being challenged, then the former Foreign Minister is equally unfit to be Ghana’s president.
“When he was campaigning in 2008 to become president, instead of organising educative, interactive programmes with the youth, Akufo-Addo preffered to organise a beach party at the La Pleasure Beach, where lots of young men and women got drunk, smoked wee, sniffed cocaine and had indiscriminate sex,” Peter Quarshie alleged.
The spokesperson accused the media of purposefully turning a blind eye to the story about the drunk-driving of the daughter of Nana Addo.
“It is shocking and amazing the manner in which a large section of the electronic media has deliberately turned a blind eye to Akufo-Addo’s inability to give his daughter any proper upbringing in their waywardness and deviant behaviour,” the group stated.
