Abu Jinapor : Kufuor would campaign massively for Nana Addo in 2012


Abu Jinapor : Kufuor would campaign massively for Nana Addo in 2012

Samuel Abu Jinapor has rubbished claims by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) that there is tension between the flag-bearer and former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

“President Kufuor is an NPP leader and he will work for NPP in 2012 to ensure that we restore his legacy and Nana Akufo-Addo would continue with his good works” he added.

According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo would not have made former President Kufuor head of his Campaign Advisory Board for election 2012 if indeed they are at loggerheads.

The ruling NDC have argued that President Kufuor’s inability to criticise the Mills-led administration is because President Mills has performed exceptionally well in his effort to fulfil the Better Ghana Agenda he promised Ghanaians.

Describing him as a true statesman, some members of the NDC have said former President Kufuor is not comfortable entrusting the governance of the country in the hands of Nana Addo hence would rather prefer President J.E.A Mills to retain the seat in the 2012 elections.

Former President Kufuor earlier in an interview with Joy FM's Super Morning Show host Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah declined to comment on the performance of the Mills administration but rather preferred Ghanaians who voted the NDC into power do the assessment in election 2012.

But Abu Jinapor on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Wednesday stated that, contrary to suggestions by the NDC, President Kufuor would mount the campaign platform together with Nana Akufo-Addo to ensure the party is voted back to power in 2012.

He said considering Kufuor’s excellent performance as president for eight years on the ticket of the NPP, his role and commitment to the party is not in doubt.

Abu Jinapor observed that, with Kufuor’s credential as a Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Busia administration between 1969 and 1972 and also a former Member of Parliament for Atwima Nwabiagya and his recent award by the Word Food programme, his expertise is greatly needed in the party’s bid to unseat the NDC in the 2012 general elections.

He expressed shock at the NDC’s sudden admiration for former President Kufuor whom he said the NDC's founder ex-President Jerry Rawlings accuses as corrupt and even likened him to a convicted, hardened criminal ‘Ataa Ayi’.

Abu Jinapor urged the NDC to solve the internal wrangling in the party ahead of their July 8-10 delegates congress in Sunyani rather than trying to make former President Kufuor their ally.

“For me President Kufuor is doing what every statesman ought to do. When we mount the political platform, you will see President Kufuor in full political regalia canvassing for Nana Akufo-Addo. The best always comes from the NPP”, Abu noted.
