High Court asked to declare Nana Akufo Addo unfit to contest for President

NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo Addo has been dragged to the high court for allegedly keeping a state vehicle for his private use. 

A writ filed at the court today by two activists of the governing National Democratic Congress and sighted by JOY NEWS says the Nana Akufo-Addo illegally kept a Toyota land Cruiser for nineteen months.

NDC activists George Spencer Quaye and Alex Doe are asking the court to declare that his decision to keep the state vehicle for his private use for more than 20 months makes him unfit to be President of Ghana.

Spokesperson for Nana Addo, Mustapha Hamid says the flagbearer has not received any writ.

According to Hamid, the former Attorney-General Nana Addo has never used public property since he left government in 2008.

He made reference to the fact that Nana Addo didn’t even use a government bungalow he was entitled to while in office.

The case is an attempt at “political equalization”, Mustapha Hamid argued, adding, because in recent times, a pressure group, Occupy Ghana has dragged a former NDC minister  Oteng Agyei to court for using a government vehicle years after he exited government, the NDC in a haste and without any justification wants to equalize.

The writ, Mustapha Hamid maintained “betrayed a certain ill-intent”. He also called it “frivolous”.

He is calling the bluff of the NDC activists to do their worst because he believes the party will have the last laugh in court.

“Let them go to court….We will meet them in court”, Mustapha Hamid said.
