Real Reason Why Nana Akufo Addo Lost 2008 Elections To John Evans Fiffi Attah Mills Revealed

Published

on

It’s an open secret that former President John Agyekum Kufour doesn’t like the incumbent President, Nana Akufo Addo. Well, that has been the perception and a propaganda tool often spread in the grapevine by National Democratic Congress (NDC) faithful.

We have no evidence to suggest that they don’t like each other but the truth is that even some NPP supporters believe there could be an iota of truth in these popular rumors.

This subject has been given a new lease of life after General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, known widely as General Mosquito explained in an interview on Asempa FM about this famous seeming beef between the two statesmen.

General Mosquito said Nana Akufo Addo harbours element of resentment towards Kufour because of his failure to use his incumbency to ‘hold on to power’ for him during the 2008 elections during the time he was leaving office after serving his two terms.

Nana Akufo Addo wanted the outgoing president, John Agyekum Kufour who was ruling the country on the ticket of the NPP to use his advantage to help him come into power during the second round of the general election which was limited to the Town of Tain.

‘Before we went to the Tain by-elections, President Kufuor said whoever will win Tain he will hand over power to him. Because of that, President Kufuor and Nana Addo fought in Busia’s house at Wenchi in the midst of some NPP top officials who were going to Tain for the by-elections. That is why they didn’t go to Tain at all for the by-elections,’ Mosquito explained.

According to the narrative, Kufour refused to do so which led to some skirmishes at Busia’s house between Kufour and his allies and that of Akufo Addo. Eventually, the NDC, led by John Evans Atta Mills won the elections.

Meanwhile, Nana Akufo Addo has been holding virtual meetings with his ministers since he went on a 14 day mandatory isolation as a precautionary measure against Covid-19. Cabinet met for the 80th time this week since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) took over power under the leadership of Nana Akufo-Addo.

‘I chaired the 80th Cabinet Meeting of my government from the Presidential Villa in Jubilee House,’ President Akufo-Addo told Ghanaians on his official Facebook account.
