A communications team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has described President Nana Akufo-Addo as a ‘wicked’ President who does not have the well-being of the poor at heart.
According to the vociferous NDC communicator, the ‘wicked’ nature of the President caused him to approve the eviction of hawkers and squatters around his residence in Nima.
“The president is very wicked, otherwise he wouldn’t have approved of the eviction of the squatters near his house…” he said.
Traders and squatters around the Nima residence of the President finally moved out after a directive for them to vacate the premises expired Thursday, March 15.
The National Security is set to take over the land which is directly opposite the president’s house.
Some of the squatters expressed disappointment in the President.
And Sammy Gyamfi, speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Friday, said the President has demonstrated that he is wicked than Biblical King, Nebuchadnezzar, and former Ugandan dictator, Iddi Amin
“I wonder if he came to steal, kill and destroy because he is wicked than Nebuchadnezzar, Iddi Amin, a very heartless man…,” he said.
Sammy Gyamfi said his description of the President is borne out of the fact that the “poor people” around the President’s house wouldn’t have been ejected if he had moved to the Flagstaff House.
“The President had a choice to continuously live with the poor neighbors but he chose to sack them because he’s wicked and fed up with the poor people after begging them to vote for him…,” Sammy Gyamfi stated.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the NDC, Kwame Baffoe, Abronye DC who was also on the show responded that he wasn’t sure Sammy Gyamfi knew the President that well.
According to him, the President had no choice as the decision was a national security one which he had no control over.
To Abronye, the NDC should have been the last party to talk about the eviction of people in Nima as the party is on record to have ‘insulted’ the people of Nima.
