Akufo-Addo should speak up

Franklin Cudjoe

Franklin Cudjoe, Founding President of IMANI Africa has described as sickening President Nana Akufo-Addo’s silence on the melee that occurred at the Steps to Christ registration center at Kasoa that resulted in the Minister for Special Development Initiatives, Hawa Koomson, firing gunshots.

Mr. Cudjoe was at a loss as to why 48 hours after the incident, the president has issued no official statement to condemn the act.

“President Akufo-Addo’s silence is sickening, at least he should issue a statement on the incident saying he doesn’t condone such actions and that he would take up the matter, before going ahead to do whatever he intends doing about the incident,” he said on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem on Wednesday.

“It’s very irresponsible on the part of the president to still be mute on the issue 48 hours after it happened and I would be very sad and hurt if President Akufo-Addo doesn’t sack her,” he added.

Mr. Cudjoe, speaking further, noted that Madam Koomson’s action was premeditated.

“I don’t believe her story that she did what she did in self-defense because the police were around. What was she going to do at the registration center with a gun? Her action was pre-meditated,” he said.
