Former Deputy Ashanti regional Minister, Joseph Yammin says former President John Agyekum Kufour himself asked Ghanaians to deliver power to the NDC’s John Mahama in 2012.
He said on Angel FM’s breakfast show Wednesday that “in 2012, President Kufour urged Ghanaians to deliver the Presidency to the “chief apprentice”. As at that time, Nana Akufoo addo did not qualify as Chief apprentice. The highest level he was able to reach in the governance structure was a ministerial position. John Mahama was Vice President who became President. So naturally, it goes without saying who President Kufour was referring to”.
Mr. Yammin is confident Ghanaians won’t vote NPP’s Nana Akufo Addo into the Office of the President because all he says is “try me”. “There is someone who keeps saying “try me, try me”. I am not sure we want to hand over the country to anyone on a “try me” basis”, Yammin stated.
He was full of praise for the NDC party officials and loyalists who were working so hard to ensure that the ongoing limited registration exercise went on successfully. He was impressed that things were going on well in spite of pockets of misunderstandings in some places.
Joseph Yammin, who is currently the Deputy National NADMO Coordinator expressed worry over media comments surrounding the Wontumi arrest especially at the utterances of Kennedy Agyepong. “Kennedy Agyepong is also a Member of Parliament and should pray no such thing happens to him. I’m not sure he will be happy if such predicament befalls him or his relative”.
He believes the incited crowd that massed up at the Kumasi Central Police station were being agitated by some media houses and would not have tolerated any non-NPP person including himself who wanted to step in and help secure bail for Chairman Wontumi who he says is his close friend. “I was going to bail out Wontumi but had to return due to the crowd and commentary on radio inciting the people; a situation I felt made my safety hung in the balance. No non-NPP person’s safety could have been guaranteed there”, he said.
