A Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has said that critics are saying he is ungrateful to Former President John Dramani Mahama because Mr Mahama supported him when he was arrested and taken to the then Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) now known as the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB).
Koku said Mr Mahama only visited him to take a picture with him for his parochial political agenda.
“People think John Mahama took me out of BNI cell and I am being ungrateful to him. Respectfully, John Mahama visited me just as many people did. John Mahama chose to take a picture with me obviously for his parochial political agenda. John Dramani Mahama, had no hand in my release; the law released me,” he tweeted following his campaign against John Mahama to be elected flagbearer of the NDC.
On March 28, 2018, Mr Mahama visited Koku Anyidoho who was in the custody of BNI on a charge of treason felony.
Mr Anyidoho was arrested Tuesday following a statement he made on Accra-based Happy FM that President Akufo-Addo was likely to suffer the fate of his father who was overthrown as President by a military coup in 1972.
“Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself.
“On January 13, 1972 a certain Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong led a movement that removed the Progress Party from power.
“Busia was the Prime Minister and Akufo-Addo’s father was a ceremonial president. Somebody should tell Nana Akufo-Addo that history has a very interesting way of repeating itself. There’ll be a civil revolt. There’ll be a people’s movement. During President John Mahama’s tenure didn’t we receive similar threats from the likes of Let My Vote Count and OccupyGhana,”
“There’ll be a civilian coup d’etat; there’ll be a social revolution and the movement is starting on Wednesday. He [Akufo-Addo] will be fed up at the Presidency.”
