The Akuapem North District Chief Executive, Mr. George Opare Addo is besides himself with anger at what he says are deliberate lies on the part of New Patriotic Party’s flag-bearer for election 2012, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and persons around him of events recorded at the 2010 Odwira festival celebration at Akropong in the Eastern Region last week.

Opare Addo claims not only did Nana Addo, who he said had arrived in town early in the day deliberately and mischievously plan to ruin the celebration by attending the durbar of chiefs to climax the celebration late, he also planned to turn it into a political affair.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme with host Nana Kwabena Bobie Ansah, Opare Addo said Nana Addo did it because he has no respect for President Mills.

The DCE, angry at what he says are deliberate lies in various accounts of what actually transpired at the durbar that led to the prevention of Nana Addo from greeting the Eastern Regional Minister, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, who represented the president at the event, explained that early on Saturday, there was intelligence suggesting that the NPP were distributing party paraphernalia to its members to adorn to the durbar, an action which he said was nipped in the bud because an information van was sent round to disabuse the minds of the people from turning the festive occasion into a political rally.
