Kwame Anokye (PhD) Responds to Professor Mike Ocquaye

I read with incredulity the darkest attempt by a self described Pastor and chairman of
the New Patriotic Party’s legal and constitutional committee Professor Mike Ocquaye,
to whitewash the demagogue (Akufo-Addo) he keenly worships and adore, from his
inherent REIGN OF VIOLENCE AND TERROR as captured on the front pages of the
Informer Newspaper “Afoko is the Source of Violence in the NPP”.
It is sad that, the grown dishonest Mike Ocquaye will hide behind his Professorial
title to make exploits in Lying just to please the originator of “All Die Be Die”, Akufo-
Addo. I have no qualms whatsoever with Mike Ocquaye if he worships and sings
praises to the father of “All Die Be Die” at the Nima fortress like he’s always done,
however, I am deeply saddened about the fact that, Mike Ocquaye has chosen to
abandon his profession for the peddling of spurious lies and slander, which rather
embarrasses his own conscience and dignity of his family. He is a self-style baptist
pastor and he should know better.
For where Professor Mike Ocquaye is traversing in
recent times, if I don’t awake him from his sycophantic venture, he will end up not
only as a DISHONEST HISTORIAN , but his Maker will tell him, ” YOU WERE AN
IRRELEVANT AND A WORTHLESS PASTOR” on the day of judgement.
Before I start, I want Mike Ocquaye to put his hand on his heart to say again the lies
that “Haruna Esseku was suspended as a Chairman”
Between 1994 and 2007 where Candidate JA Kufour took over from Candidate
Professor Albert Adu Boahene, the NPP has never witnessed any form of violence and
thuggery. Candidate Kufour even when he was left to carry his own cross by
proponents of the dreadful G-15 Led by Akufo-Addo, Ala Adjetey , Kwabena
Agyepong, Victor Newman, and Co, he steered affairs of the party with remarkable
tolerance, genuine heart and mind , and a crave for Unity in diversity. Irrefutably,
President JA Kufour is the most successful Presidential candidate and flagbearer the
NPP tradition has ever had. He remains the Most successful leader and elder, the
NPP has ever had. In terms of government, his sterling leadership, his unique desire
for tolerance, genuine unity, transparency, accountability and Peace has earned him
the accolade in a gold plate “THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CIVILIAN TO HAVE RULED
Akufo-Addo who, has , for propaganda value, embellished himself as the convener of
the “Kume Preko” demonstration in his overly contrived CV strewn on Google and
other places, albeit he was a member, abandoned the victims and families of violent
killing in the demonstration. Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe a joint organizer of the event said
and added that Kwesi Pratt Jnr could corroborate the claim, captured it as ” Out of
Kumi Preko we lost about eight people and up until this very day nothing has been
done for the families of these fallen ones. Believe me or not, through Kumi Preko, a
young man of thirteen years, Ahunu was shot in front of the Adabraka Primary School
so you can imagine if he was alive today what his age would be. But when we came
to power under President J.A Kufuor, we had then promised to help these people but
we did nothing for them. They are there at Adabraka as I talk now. This same family
approached Nana Addo but he did nothing for them when we were in power”.
The NPP after shortlisting the numerous candidates for the flagbearership position to
17 of which Professor Ocquaye was part, ended up in University of Ghana, Legon to
elect the next Presidential candidate of the Party who will take over from President
JA Kufour. Prior to Legon, Akufo-Addo’s campaign was characterized with insults
and verbal abuses from his hirelings and cousins against leading contenders such as
Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Alan Kyerematen, Papa Owusu Ankomah, etc. This was
succinctly captured in an article in the Daily Graphic by one Kwasi okai “The stain
that marred the beautiful but heated campaign to elect the next successor to
President Kufour was that of Akufo-Addo. His surrogates such as Ursula Owusu ,
Gabby Okyere-Darko, and Co never missed chance in lashing verbal abuses at the
Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama and Alan Kyerematen. Akufo-Addo as I have
known him is full of agitation and Violence, he is taking this contest as a life and
death one with his unpopular campaign message “Y3 Nim Me Fre Tete. I wouldn’t be
surprised if his highly incensed supporters cause mayhem in Legon.””
In Legon, when it dawn on Akufo-Addo’s gangs that, Alan Kyerematen was winning,
they devise a cruel, heinous and violent orchestration to disrupt the process of
harmonious Voting. What happened was captured on several media platforms as
Chairman of the NPP Paul Afoko was captured in pages 35 of the New York based
African Watch Magazine as saying” Indeed what happened at that congress at Legon
was outright thuggery!
I went to the Legon congress – and the pictures are there – wearing a pair of jeans
and a T-shirt with NPP colors embroided around the neck. How could I have carried
half a million US dollars in the pockets of my jeans? And to go into the conference
hall, we all went through a metal detector and a body search. I didn’t have a single
penny on me. Not a penny! I had left the cash I had on me in my car parked in front
of Volta Hall, locked. The congress was held in the Great Hall. I had no cash on me.
When the Akufo-Addo team realized that the voting trend was going firmly in favor of
Alan Kyeremateng, they orchestrated this whole thing that Afoko was distributing
money to delegates to vote for Kyeremateng, to create confusion and an immediate
disaf- fection for the man and to change the trend.
I had gone to the washroom, and when I came back I walked towards where the
delegates were. The Northern Region had finished voting and they had left, so the
whole of that area was empty. Empty seats! I have got the TV footage because I tried
to go to court over this matter.
It was in the middle of those empty seats that a group of people just rushed up and
grabbed me and said I was giving out money. They pushed and kicked at me. In the
middle of empty seats! I wonder whether I was giving money to empty seats.
So the whole attention of the congress now turned to me. Somebody then took the
micro- phone and started working the emotions of the delegates. “Paul Afoko is
sharing money over there. Is this party for sale?” That sort of thing.
For the first time I tasted the rough end of politics internally within my own party.
Immediately it was all over for me. I told myself, “Disengage, you don’t want any
more of this, focus on your business.””
After the Counting of ballots and everything has been done, Akufo-Addo never had
the 50%+1 threshold which the constitution of the party demands. Hence, the need
for a rerun between the two leading contenders, Alan Kyerematen and Akufo-Addo.
For the sake of peace and unity, Alan Kyerematen on his own volition with no
condition, gave up the contest and announced that, he was going to support Akufo-
Addo as the Presidential candidate of the NPP.
Insatiable in his thirst for violence and thuggery, Nana Akufo-Addo established a
reign of terror in the NPP right after assuming the Flagbearership position of the New
Patriotic Party in 2007. Akufo-Addo began to impose his Inherent Intolerant beliefs
on the party such that today when he says he wants something, no INDEPENDENT
MIND should attempt to disagree with his position. Akufo-Addo and his hirelings
assume their first responsibility, which was a show of vindictiveness and attacking of
any NPP member who supported Alan. One Alan loyalist who was at party’s Asylum
Down Headquarters, identified as Nana Kwame is a victim of Akufo-Addo’s thuggery
and Violence addiction.
Nana Kwame was trapped in a dark room at the party’s headquarters by hirelings of
Akufo-Addo, they punched Nana Kwame in the face, knocking him to the ground;
bloodied by bludgeoning the side of his head with cutlass and a sledgehammer;
leaving him paralysed. Nana Kwame underwent a Brain surgery at the Korlebu
Teaching Hospital. Today, he is paralyzed and walks with an aiding material. Quite
apart from that, Aspirants for the Parliamentary candidate Positions in 2008 who were
known supporters of Alan Kyerematen tasted open persecution, bias, and ostracism
from Akufo-Addo. A clear case in point was the Asante Bekwai Parliamentary contest.
Because Joseph OWusu Alias “Joe Wise” never supported Akufo-Addo in the 2007
primaries, Akufo-Addo told party executives in the constituency just as others in
Akan parlance, “Men Tumi Ne No Ny3 Adwuma” to wit “I can’t work with him”.
Joseph Owusu contested as an independent candidate and he won the seat against
the all the odds of the naked emperor Akufo-Addo.
Akufo-Addo as part of his inordinate desire to take over the party, in connivance with
the scoundrel Peter Mc Manu who was then party chairman, amended the party’s
constitution. Something Akufo-Addo and his Kyebi mafias plan of doing after the
2016 elections, against the backdrop as having been denied of that request by the
duly elected Independent minded and fair minded National Chairman of our time ,
Paul Afoko.
The trade fair Congress was again stain with Violence abuse from Akufo-Addo and
his hirelings against supporters of Alan Kyerematen. Isn’t it curious that , Professor
Mike Ocquaye, for fear of been denied his malnourished body from elevated
sycophancy , will reluctantly decide not to remember all these reign of chaos and
awkward mannerism of his tinpot, Akufo-Addo?
By the start of 2012 calender year, Akufo-Addo has absolutely metamorphosed the
good NPP left to him in 2007 by President Kufour into a home grown entity,
synonymous with dark violence, vindictiveness, thuggery chaos and intolerance. The
Washington Based Centre for Strategic And International Studies, Page 16 of its Africa
Report in June 2011, authored by David W. Throup captured the inherently Violence
addiction of the toxic Flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo as “The role of the
NPP leader and expected presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, will be crucial,
and early signals suggest reason for worry. Akufo-Addo is desperate to mobilize
support, and He has played the ethnic cards, referring to the NPP as “We the Akans,”
urging his supporters to “all die be die”–that is, they should be willing to die to
ensure the NPP’s victory”
Undeniably, Akufo-Addo is the only Ghanaian politician ever to have an incessant
flirtation with violence words. Terrifyingly, anytime Akufo-Addo travels outside
Ghana, violence befalls the NPP, making Akufo-Addo’s travel to become of national
Security concern. His fiercest loyalist and family members have not been left out of
this craze.
Addressing gatherings of his newly created Polling station ie the UK Branch, Akufo-
Addo said “The judge’s told us that whatever happens at the Polling stations,
whether good or bad, whether it is in accordance with the law or not, once it has
been recorded at the polling stations, they the judge’s can do nothing about it… We
have learned our lessons and we are going to take our fight to the polling stations.”
Ashanti Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Bosiako, A fiercest loyalist of Akufo-Addo
who slapped MP for Manhyia North and got hailed by Akufo-Addo at a fund raising in
London for acting as such is quoted as saying ” “This is an elections of our lives”.
Elsewhere in Ghana, Akufo-Addo is quoted as “we are going to use the MILITANCY
on ourside to fight them”
A ferocious loyalist of Akufo-Addo who Akufo-Addo, described as “Redoubtable” for
insulting the Former President JA Kufour and his Chief Of Staff as Murderers, Ken
Agyapong was quoted as saying on his own Oman Fm “Kill Gas and Ewes.”
Prior to the 2014 Presidential contest, Akufo-Addo’s cousin Atta Kyea said this to a
gathering in Kyebi -” Anybody who fails to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo is a wizard.”
A goon and a fiercest loyalist of the Kyebi beast, Akufo-Addo who is the Eastern
Regional chairman of the NPP, Kinston Akomeng-Kissi is not left out of this affection
with violence. He is quoted as saying “We will kill Anybody who stands on the way
of Nana Akufo-Addo”
The Kyebi beast Akufo-Addo killed Adams Mahama. Let Akufo-Addo put his hands
on his heart and say he never had a hand in Adams murder. A steering committee
meeting where National Chairman Paul Afoko told the meeting his intention to visit
the three northern regions had Akufo-Addo and Adams Mahama as participants in
that meeting. Adams Mahama and John Boadu were both with Kwabena Agyepong
the night before the visit to Upper East Region planning on how to go about with the
meeting in Bolga. On the Following day, Adams and John Boadu after listening to the
deception of the Nima beast Akufo-Addo, pretended ignorance of the said meeting
they both were planing with Kwabena Agyepong. Indeed, John Boadu came to drop
Adams Mahama at the airport. Adams vilified Kwabena Agyepong to the amazement
of passengers and it took Lawyer Ambruse Derry to restore calm. In Bolga, Adams
armed the thugs (loading boys) at Bolga station to come and attack party officers
who had thronged from their various constituencies to meet with Chairman Afoko and
Kwabena Agyepong. Police fired tear gas and Adams and his thugs dispersed. Next
moment, Adams directed the thugs to beat mercilessly, his regional Organizer whose
crime only was to organize the meeting. The Organizer had blood running all over
his body. Akufo-Addo kept quite and never condemn this act of Violence from his
ferocious loyalist Adams Mahama. All he did was to pack his luggage and left for a
two weeks tour in Europe. Whiles Akufo-Addo was away, Adams was Killed just as
Akufo-Addo had planned.
Few hours after Adams was confirmed dead, Kamal Deen said on CitiFm that, he was
the last person to call Adams Mahama and ” as a brother when he [Adams Mahama]
called me I didn’t mince words at all, I just told him this is a signal I have received,
and that he should be mindful of his security and above all be very prayerful.”
Then Akufo-Addo and his unwise goons, foolishly found it worthy to hang the
murderer on Gregory Afoko, brother of the NPP National Chairman Paul Afoko, who
was fast asleep in his father’s room, just to justify their hatred for the pride of the
North. You see how they are struggling to prove the cause of Adams death with
cheap conspiracy theories? So Akufo-Addo and his bunch of goons began asking
Chairman Afoko to resign. Why is Akufo-Addo not resigning over the murder of his
brother JB Dankwa Adu when indeed, all proves points to him as the prime suspect
in the murder of the late legislator and entrepreneur?
Few days before this incidence, Adams had a confrontation with his First Vice
Chairman over Monies meant for “Dumsor demonstration” in Bolga, and Adams is
reported to have slapped the Vice Chairman.
Security Changes at the headquarters was done by Musah Superior who was then
Executive Secretary of General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong.
Violence erupting at the party headquarters against a Press conference organized by
the party was orchestrated by Akufo-Addo and Hackman Owusu-Agyemang. Akufo-
Addo and Hackman organized the thugs and armed them with machetes, metals,
guns, cutlass, pickass, bows, etc
Akufo-Addo’s thugs at the headquarters trapped again Atluk Ibrahim, an aide to
Chairman Afoko in a room at the party’s asylum down headquarters and roughed him
up under the instructions of Akufo-Addo. Atluk suffered a fracture in the bone of his
left arm as Akufo-Addo’s thugs broke his arm. He underwent a surgery at the 37
military hospital
On the blindside of the party, Akufo-Addo and his cousin Ken Ofori-Atta imported
militants from Serbia and South Africa to do what they called “ASSAULTING THE
PILLARS OF POWER” They trained Akufo-Addo’s gullible fanatics in gun wielding,
building of bombs, etc.
On Asawase Killing of Sadiq, it was Akufo-Addo who orchestrated it and this
happened the next moment, after Akufo-Addo had left out of the country. It is said
that, Akufo-Addo organized Sadiq and some other thugs to come and attack the
constituency Chairman Brenya and his other Executives. It is reported also that,
Sadiq and his gangs used red substance to damage the Asawase constituency office
of the NPP and that among other reasons ensued into Violence. There was a tussle
and as Akufo-Addo had planned, they killed Sadiq to justify a position.
After Akufo-Addo had exhausted all means to remove the Member of Parliament for
Manhyia North who is a strong ally of Alan Kyerematen, Ashanti Regional Chairman
Bernard Bosiako Alias Wontumi on the advise of Akufo-Addo, slapped the Manhyia
North MP. Akufo-Addo hailed Wontumi for this abuse at a fundraising event in UK.
Father of Popular host of Neat Fm program Lawyer Adakabre Frimpong Manso ,
confirmed how Akufo-Addo accosted and sent severals of threatening messages to
his son to stop critiquing him. The versatile Kwame Tikesie has faced same
threatening from Akufo-Addo. Former President of Ghana Journalist Association
Kabral Amerehe Blay, has also stated in his book as been accosted and attacked by
Akufo-Addo for using his (Kabral) own Newspaper to support the Presidential bid of
Candidate Kufour prior to the Sunyani Congress in 1998
It has been reported widely on several media platforms that Akufo-Addo instructed
his security capo, the usher forts prison jail breaker and conman Captain Koda , to
apprehend and attack a lone verbal dissenter at a function in the UK branch. The
dissenter, Ohene Boakye whose crime was to only disagree with Akufo-Addo’s extol
of Wontumi for his reckless conduct against the MP for Manhyia north, was left at the
mercy of dogs of Akufo-Addo led by Captain Koda. The dogs of Akufo-Addo knocked
the head of Ohene several times and they thorn his shirt.
After reading through few examples of Akufo-Addo’s inexcusable flirtation with
violence, you would understand why his dishonest hireling, Professor Mike Ocquaye
was rejected miserably in the party’s 2007 flagbearership race. The abandoning of
God’s Word for Lies has not only made Mike Ocquaye an indictment to the world of
honest historians and the world of pastors but also, it has made his professorial title
patently irrelevant to academia.
NPP members who intuitively understand the peril in Akufo-Addo’s abiding of
violence in politics understand that it has ultimately empower Akufo-Addo to become
the most thuggish, ruthless, impulsive politician ever in Ghana.
The party’s very ethos and principles under Akufo-Addo is been defined by dark
violence, hawkish, recycled rhetoric, intolerance, indiscipline, thuggish and the
haughty behaviour of the beast and naked emperor Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Professor Mike Ocquaye, it is better late for you to start veering from that path of
elevated sycophancy , mentally enslaved, breach of common sense,
intellectual dishonesty
