…Over His Linkage To UN Demo Against Nana
The New Patriotic Party government’s attempt to water down the disgraceful spectacle that became of the President’s trip to the United States to address the 72nd General Assembly of the United Nations, by linking a private demonstration against him, to members of the opposition National Democratic Congress has invoked objection from a targeted fall guy.
Former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu, has served notice to the public that his lawyers have been put on cue to drag anybody who links him to the demonstrations to court.
In the wake of claims on social media that he was behind the demonstrations, Mr. Bonsu has replied that, “I take serious exception to the unfounded sinister allegations and have instructed my lawyers to take the necessary steps to deal with any persons who are part of this nauseating agenda.”
According a release on the issue, Mr. Bonsu explained that he was a patriotic Ghanaian who would never be a part of anything that will bring Ghana and her leadership into disrepute.
“I am a patriotic citizen of the Republic of Ghana and will not under any circumstances involve myself in any action that would dent the reputation of my country.”
The release comes amidst claims on social media that Mr. Bonsu is behind the demonstration against President Akufo-Addo by Ghanaian citizens in the US.
Ghanaians domiciled in the States, disappointed and disgusted with massive corruption and cronyism in the Akufo-Addo government, used his visit to the US to address the 72nd General Assembly of the United Nations to stage a demonstration near the Dag Hammarskjold Building in New York.
The demonstration which had been massively patronized saw the Ghanaians expressing their sentiments mainly with placards that, among others, called on the President and his family members, who he has filled his government with, to tackle corruption and lies in the administration.
They also decried witch-hunting and victimization of appointees of the former NDC regime.
A successful and well patronized demonstration had however been crowned by a lackluster performance by President Akufo-Addo, who read a generic speech that called for reforms at the UN and proclaimed his government’s implementation of Free SHS, even though more pressing global issues, such as the US’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Change agreement, were not touched.
On top of that, in the aftermath of the trip, it has emerged that the President had carried along an entourage of 196 people, including 114 party members and supporters who have not returned.
The whole trip has therefore turned out to be disgraceful, sending the NPP government in a groping escapade in attempt to blame the demonstration on others and victimize some.
Consequently, Appiah Stadium has since been invited by National Security over harp on well known public knowledge that Akufo-Addo is addicted to wee smoking.
“It is as the NPP government is looking for victims to vent its frustration on, over the disgraceful spectacle that the UN trip became that Mr. Kojo Bonsu, the former Mayor for Kumasi, has been linked to sponsorship of the demonstration by the US-based Ghanaians.
“My attention has been drawn to a publication circulating on social media referring to me as the planner of a demonstration against the President of the Republic of Ghana during his recent visit to New York for the United Nations General Assembly.
“I hereby state categorically that I never participated in the planning or organization of the demonstration, neither do I have any knowledge of any person who planned or organized the demonstration.
“I am a patriotic citizen of the Republic of Ghana and will not under any circumstances involve myself in any action that would dent the reputation of my country.
“I take serious exception to the unfounded sinister allegations and have instructed my lawyers to take the necessary steps to deal with any persons who are part of this nauseating agenda.
“I advise all to disregard the publication,” Mr. Bonsu underscored in a disclaimer.
Interestingly, Kojo Bonsu is not the first NDC man that has been alleged as a sponsor of the demonstration. Before him, the NPP had claimed that President Mahama had paid the organizers of the demonstration $76,000 to carry it out.
This has however proved to be a lie.
