Head of Communications at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho has rubbished the Press conference held by flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo where he stated his position on the political standoff in Cote D’Ivoire, describing it as “much ado about nothing”. He has also admitted to deliberately causing the publication of the President Mills’ Vindicated story carried out by two state-owned newspapers (Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times) and some other pro-government tabloids.
The NPP Flagbearer, at a press conference he addressed on Thursday, January 20, called on President Mills to be bold and support ECOWAS’ decision of a legitimate military action in Cote D’ivoire, pointing out that his inconsistency pertaining to his stance on the Ivorian crisis, has the potential of denting Ghana’s image in the eyes of the international community.
To him, the conflicting signals being sent out by the president portrays Ghana as inconsistent, unreliable and a dodgy partner in the ECOWAS sub-region.
But in a sharp rebuttal on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, an emotionally charged Koku Anyidoho was emphatic that there was no sense in what Nana Addo said at the Press conference. He felt the NPP flagbearer was not on top of issues and failed to answer the questions thrown at him cogently.
“Their Press Conference is much ado about nothing; there was no sense in what he said. The question was simple but he failed to answer it, he was rather circumlocuting. You just cannot see the head and tail of everything he said…What is Nana Addo saying; did President Mills say his stance will be the that of Akumfi? His stance has always been that of support for ECOWAS unless Nana Addo says he has not been in this country or he doesn’t read the newspapers,” he posited.
He charged Nana Addo to be man enough and answer whether he would take Ghanaian soldiers to war in Cote D’Ivoire and stop beating about the bush.
“…this is a class one question…he’s been dancing adowa, kpanlogo, kete, agbadza all day over that question…I just smile when i listen to him, he can’t answer the infantile question and i’ll continue to ask him…Nana should tell us what he would have done if he was president and whether he would have taken the soldiers of Ghana to war…Mr. ‘Matured Man’ just answer the infantile question…and in the process kill them (Ghanaian soldiers). Nana Addo should be a man and let us know what he will do and stop dancing around the issue. Stand out of your conviction and let us know your position. If he wants to be taken serious, he should stand as a man and give a yes or no answer to the question,” he added.
He contends that the NPP’s position on Ivorian political impasse clearly shows that they are not ready to handle the country’s state of affairs.
