Oseadeayo Kwesi Kennin IV, Paramount Chief of the Atti Morkwaa Traditional Area, said Ghana is indebted to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, for accepting the split 5-4 verdict in the 2013 election petition.
According to Oseadeayo Kwesi Kennin IV, “because of Nana Akufo-Addo’s patience, peaceful nature and love for Ghana, he accepted the verdict and let everything go. He gave Ghanaians the opportunity to experience the difference between water and wine these last 4 years, so that when the time for elections are due, he will present himself to the Ghanaian electorate. His actions brought peace and unity to Ghana. We thank him very much for that.”
The Paramount Chief of the Atti Morkwaa made these remarks on Friday, June 17, when the NPP flagbearer paid a courtesy call on the Chief at his palace.
Bemoaning the ‘winner-takes-all’ syndrome in Ghana’s politics, which in his opinion alienates brilliant Ghanaian minds who can help solve Ghana’s problems, ?seadeayo Kwesi Kennin backed Nana Akufo-Addo’ call for the election of MMDCEs.
