Managing Editor of Gye Nyame Concord newspaper, Alfred Ogbamey has taken a jab at former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Francis Kpegah, over his suit at the Fast Track Court accusing Nana Akufo-Addo of impersonation, describing him as a nuisance.
He was speaking in reference to Justice Kpegah’s absence in court during the first hearing of the writ he filed.
Contributing to a panel discussion on Thursday’s edition of “Kokrokoo” with host Kwami Sefa-Kayi, Alfred alluded that Justice Kpegah just wants to disturb the NPP and Nana Akufo-Addo, adding; ‘he is just being a nuisance’.
“If you listen to him, he is just enjoying being a nuisance; he is enjoying being a nuisance to the NPP and Nana Addo…he is saying, I have confused them. He has retired and sitting in the house doing nothing so he has time to bother people,” he stated.
He however said Justice Kpegah’s actions has some positive lessons because he know ‘you will not change your name without going through certain process’
According to him, the fact that Nana Addo replaced his Christian name; William with Nana, Justice Kpegah who is aware of that is intentionally disturbing him because probably he didn’t go through the right process in changing it.
He indicated that there are legal procedures to be followed when one wants to change his /her name and Justice Kpegah’s case underscores the danger in neglecting such processes.
Ogbamey maintained that it is not incumbent on Justice Kpegah to produce the said W.A.D Akufo-Addo who Nana Akufo-Addo is alleged to be impersonating, adding that he needs to do is show that there was no legal name change from William Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo to Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“There is a slight name change. Nana Addo’s name is William Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, he was given that name at birth, schooled under that name, qualified as a lawyer under that name. As time went on he replaced the Christian name with Nana. Unfortunately, in filing for his presidential candidature, he didn’t use William, he used Nana and so there is a slight difference. I have the feeling Justice Kpegah is aware that Nana Akufo-Addo is the same as William; he knows what he is doing. He is just irritating him. He is acting as a nuisance and he is enjoying it. He is of a nuisance value…” he indicated.
