Akufo-Addo To Announce Political Future After UK Trip

The 2012 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo left Ghana on Sunday, with his wife Rebecca, to the United Kingdom for a short break.

A statement issued by his office said the former Attorney General is expected to announce his political future upon his return home.

The statement, signed by his Aide, Herbert Krapa, said: “Nana Akufo-Addo wishes to use this opportunity to call on his party, the NPP, to be united and strong for the battle ahead, as he remains convinced that Ghana’s progress and the Ghanaian people’s prosperity depends largely on an NPP government”.

The statement said the former Attorney General “also requests his supporters and sympathisers to remember him in their prayers” as he takes a “political time out”.

He said: “the battle continues to be the Lord’s”.

Nana Akufo-Addo announced that he was taking a short break from politics after Ghana’s Supreme Court upheld President John Mahama’s election in its final verdict on the election petition case filed by the 2012 NPP flagbearer, his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and party Chairman Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey.

He has since been inundated with calls from party leaders and supporters to have a third try at the presidency on the ticket of the NPP as flagbearer.

The lobbying, started by the Party’s General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, sparked a debate about the propriety and timing of such calls.

Amidst the debate, a suspended founding father of the NPP, Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby, advised Nana Akufo-Addo to travel outside the country for peace of mind.
