Mahama doesn’t want the Akyems and Ashantis to unite-Andy Owusu


Former President Mahama’s decision to declare his intentions to contest for the National Democractic Congress’ flagbearership race on the same day that marked the historic visit of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to Akyem to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Ofori-Panin, has landed him in trouble.

A special aide to the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Andy Owusu, has released a statement accusing the ex-president of not wanting to see the two tribes flourish in unity and peace.

According to him, though “his visible absence did not in anyway dim the beauty of the event, it was a golden chance for former president Mahama to dispel the notion many had about his feelings towards the two tribes.”
