‘If the Akyems do not stop their nonsense, they’ll take VISA before entering Accra’ – NDC MP

Member of Parliament for Odododiodioo, Nii Lantey, has said that the people of the Akyem tribe should be very careful of their comments against the Flag Bearer of the Opposition NDC because if they do not take care, they will take visa before they enter Accra.

His comments comes in the wake of a recent demonstration by the people of Akyem to register their displeasure of a statement endorsed by former President John Dramani Mahama.

Mr Mahama, on his Facebook page, endorsed a Facebook post by Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, who described the Akufo-Addo led administration as a corrupt one.

The post was captured as: Agyapa Royalties fraud is the last straw: The Akyem Sakawa boys and Grandpas must go.

This infuriated the peoole of Akyem who took to the streets to demonstrate and dmenad an apology from the former head of state for tagging the people of Akyem with that description.

However, the lawmaker said, “John Mahama is not going to apologise today, he’s not going to apologise tomorrow”.

“If the Concerned Citizens of Akyem in the Eastern Region do not stop their nonsense, they will give them visa before entering Accra.”

He said, “if today, we, the Ga, get up and say the Akyem should remove the so-called Akyem Traditional Office from Adabraka and carry it to Kyebi, will it be good?

All of us will demand every politician, every leader in this country, apologise for one statement or the other; from today. Some of us are even going to insist that some people will take a visa even to enter Accra. Why? Are we not in a united Ghana anymore? This nonsense must stop.

Very soon, some people will also bar some people from campaigning in another region. If Volta Youth get up and say because of what the government did during the registration exercise, no NPP person should campaign in that region, will it be fair?

So, will Akufo-Addo go and campaign in Bole or in any part of Gonjaland? Will he go? Why do you want to virtually break down this country because of people’s selfish aggrandisement, capricious political intents”.
