LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT H.E. NANA ADDO DANKWA AKUFO-ADDO


​Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the president elect was born and raised in Ga-Maami (Accra Central) and in the Nima area of Accra.

His father’s residence, Betty House at Korle Wokon in Accra, was effectively the headquarters of the country’s first political party, the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), after it was formed at Saltpond on 4 August 1947.

Three of the “Big Six” – the founding fathers of Ghana – were his relatives: J. B. Danquah (grand-uncle), William Ofori-Atta (uncle) and Edward Akufo-Addo (the third Chief Justice of Ghana and later ceremonial President of the Republic from 1969 to 1972), (his father).

Akufo-Addo received his primary education first at the Government Boys School, Adabraka, and later at the Rowe Road School (now Kimbu), both in Accra Central. He went to England to study for his O-Level and A-Level examinations at Lancing College, Sussex . He began the Philosophy, Politics and Economics course at New College, Oxford in 1962, but apparently left soon after. [2] He returned to Ghana in 1962 to teach at Accra Academy Secondary School, before going to read Economics at the University of Ghana , Legon , in 1964, earning a BSc(Econ) degree in 1967.

He subsequently studied law in the UK and was called to the English Bar (Middle Temple) in July 1971. Akufo-Addo was called to the Ghana bar in July 1975. Legal and business career Akufo-Addo stayed in France for five years as a lawyer at the now-defunct New York-based international law firm Coudert Brothers. Apart from the welcome exposure to the dynamics of international corporate transactions, his stay in France also made him fluent in French. In 1975, he returned home to Accra to continue with his legal career.

He joined the chambers of U. V. Campbell from 1975 to 1979, and in 1979 co-founded the law firm Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co., which has become one of the prominent law firms in Ghana. Some Ghanaian lawyers who passed through his law firm are among the most outstanding lawyers at the Ghanaian bar today. They include Sophia Akuffo , Justice of the Supreme Court; Joyce Darko; Daniel Afari Yeboah; Philip Addison; Joe Ghartey , a former Attorney General and Minister for Justice; Alex Quaynor; Frank Davies; Kweku Paintsil; Ursula Owusu; Atta Akyea, Akufo-Addo’s successor as MP for Abuakwa South constituency; Akoto Ampaw; Yoni Kulendi; Kwame Akuffo; Kwaku Asirifi; and Godfred Dame. Like the “Doyen of Gold Coast politics”, J. B. Danquah, and others before him, Akufo-Addo used his law practice to champion the cause of human rights, rule of law, justice, freedom, and democracy.

He was well known for giving free legal assistance to the poor and fought for the rights and liberties of the Ghanaian people. Indeed, many of the important constitutional cases of the modern era, which, inter alia, protected the independence of the judiciary, the right of the citizen to demonstrate without police permit, and the right of equal access of all political parties to the State-owned media, were undertaken by him. Akufo-Addo has served on the boards and committees of a number of political, legal, commercial, and social organizations in the country.

He was the first Chairperson of DHL (GH) Ltd; Chairperson, Kinesec Communications (Co) Ltd, publishers of The Statesman; and the first Chairperson of the Ghana Committee on Human and Peoples’ Rights. He was responsible, through his association with the US company, Millicom, for introducing mobile telephony into the country. Political career In his early thirties, Akufo-Addo was the General Secretary of the broad-based People’s Movement for Freedom and Justice (PMFJ), which was composed of political stalwarts such as Akwasi Amankwa Afrifa, William Ofori-Atta, Komla Agbeli Gbedemah , Albert Adu Boahen , Sam Okudzeto , Obed Asamoah , Godfrey Agama, K. S. P. Jantuah, Jones Ofori-Atta, Johnny Hanson and Nii Amaah Amartefio (“Mr. No”). This group led the “NO” campaign in the UNIGOV referendum of 1978, designed to solicit popular support for a one-party military-led State.

The “No” campaign ultimately brought about the downfall of the Acheampong military government on 5 July 1978, and the restoration of multiparty democratic rule to the country in 1979. Akufo-Addo had to go briefly into exile after the referendum, when his life was in danger. But, from Europe, he could be heard constantly on the BBC World Service , vigorously criticising the military rulers back in Ghana and calling for a return to democracy. He is acknowledged as one of the leaders of the pro-democracy movement in Ghana. In 1991, Akufo-Addo was the chairman of the Organising Committee of the Danquah-Busia Memorial Club, a club dedicated to the preservation of the memory and ideals of the two great advocates of Ghanaian democracy, J. B. Danquah and K. A. Busia , Prime Minister of the Progress Party government of the 2nd Republic of Ghana. Akufo-Addo travelled throughout Ghana to establish branches of the Club all over the country in the grassroots style for which he is known.

These branches eventually transformed into local organs of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) prior to the elections of 1992, which heralded the reintroduction of democratic governance under the 4th Republic. In 1992, he was the first national organiser of the NPP and, later that year, campaign manager of the party’s first presidential candidate, Prof. Albert Adu Boahen, the man of courage who broke the “culture of silence” in Ghana, and played such a crucial role in the reintroduction of democracy.

In 1992, Akufo-Addo set up and financed The Statesman newspaper, which has become the unofficial mouthpiece of the NPP. In 1995, he led the famous “Kume Preko” demonstrations of the Alliance For Change (AFC), a broad-based political pressure group, which mobilised millions of people onto the streets of Ghana to protest the harsh economic conditions of the Rawlings era. Some pundits in Ghana believe that this was instrumental in re-establishing the NPP as a more formidable force after Professor Adu Boahen. Akufo-Addo was elected three times between 1996 and 2008 as Member of Parliament for the Abuakwa South constituency in the Eastern region of Ghana.

From 2001 to 2007, as Cabinet Minister, first as Attorney-General and Minister for Justice for two years, and later as Foreign Minister for five years, Akufo-Addo served in the government of President John Kufuor with distinction. As Attorney-General, he was responsible for the repeal of the Criminal Libel Law, which, hitherto, had been used to intimidate the media and criminalise free speech.

The repeal has enabled the Ghanaian media become one of the most vibrant and freest in Africa. Under his chairmanship of the Legal Sector Reform Committee, the implementation of the court automation programme was initiated. As Foreign Minister, he was fully involved in the successful Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) peace efforts in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, and Guinea Bissau, and was chairman of the ECOWAS Mediation and Security Council in 2003. In 2004, Ghana was elected one of the 15 pioneer members of the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Council, a mandate that was renewed at the AU Summit in Khartoum in January 2006.

Akufo-Addo was chosen by his peers on the AU Executive Council to chair the Ministerial Committee of 15 that fashioned the Ezulwini Consensus, which defined the African Union’s common position on UN Reforms. He negotiated for the 2007 AU Summit to be held in Accra as part of Ghana’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, and chaired the AU Executive Council in 2007. Ghana was elected by her peers to take the non-permanent West African seat on the UN Security Council for 2006-07.

In August 2006, Akufo-Addo chaired the meeting of the Security Council which took the decision that halted Israel’s massive incursions into Lebanon. Again, Ghana was elected to the new UN body, the Human Rights Council, with the highest number of votes—183 out of 191—of any country, and as a pioneer member of another UN body, the Peacebuilding Commission. Presidential bids In October 1998, Nana Akufo-Addo competed for the presidential candidacy of the NPP and lost to John Kufuor, the man who eventually won the December 2000 presidential election and assumed office as President of Ghana in January 2001. Akufo-Addo was the chief campaigner for candidate Kufuor in the 2000 election and became the first Attorney General and Minister for Justice of the Kufuor era.

Akufo-Addo resigned from the Kufuor government in July 2007 to contest for the position of presidential candidate of his party, the NPP, for the 2008 elections. Competing against 16 others, he won 48% of the votes in the first round of that election, but was given a unanimous endorsement in the second round, making him the party’s presidential candidate.

In the 7 December 2008 presidential race, he received, in the first round, more votes than John Atta Mills, the eventual winner. In the first round, Akufo-Addo received 4,159,439 votes, representing 49.13% of the votes cast, placing him first, but not enough for the 50% needed for an outright victory.

It was the best-ever performance for a first-time presidential candidate in the Fourth Republic. In the run-off, Mills received 4,521,032 votes, representing 50.23%, thus beating Akufo-Addo by the smallest margin in Ghana’s, and, indeed, in Africa’s political history. Akufo-Addo accepted the results without calling even for a recount, thereby helping to preserve the peace, freedom and stability of Ghana. Akufo-Addo again contested in the 2012 national elections against the NDC candidate, the late Mills’ successor as President, John Mahama , and lost.

That election generated considerable controversy, and was finally decided by the Supreme Court in a narrow 5/4 decision in favour of John Mahama. Akufo-Addo is credited with helping to preserve the peace of the country by the statesmanlike manner in which he accepted the adverse verdict of the Court, at a time of high tension in the country. In March 2014, Akufo-Addo announced his decision to seek his party’s nomination for the third time ahead of the 2016 election.

He secured an unprecedented, landslide victory of 94.35% of the votes in the party’s presidential primary in October 2014, in a contest with seven competitors. Akufo-Addo also served as Chair of the Commonwealth Observer Mission for the South African elections in 2014.

On November 30, Addo received the endorsement of the All People Congress in the North region. [3] Personal life He is from Kyebi in the Eastern Region.

He is married to Rebecca Akufo-Addo (née Griffiths-Randolph). They have five daughters and five grandchildren.

PATRIOTIC PROFESSIONALS GHANA-CALLS FOR PEACEFUL AND CREDIBLE ELECTIONS.

​PATRIOTIC PROFESSIONALS GHANA-PPG CALLS FOR PEACEFUL AND CREDIBLE ELECTIONS
Patriotic Professional Ghana-PPG is calling on all stake holders in Ghana’s elections including the international community to take steps to ensure a peaceful and credible elections.
Elections all over the world are exciting events that ensure citizens participation in the governance of their country. However in our part of the world election periods are scary moments, with everybody sitting on tenterhooks until the final whistle is blown, mainly because of egocentrism , greed and fear of unfair election management.
Ghana has successfully gone through this event six times from 1992, thereby winning the accolade ‘beacon of hope in Africa’,PPG is therefore unable to understand why the 2016 version of this recurrent event is characterized by violence, ethnocentrism and official unprofessionalism.
A few days ago,the residence of the flag bearer of the opposition NPP, Nana Akufo Addo was attacked by supporters of the governing party and no one has answered for it yet. A few months ago, a gentleman lost his life in the Asawase constituency in an election related violence, the perpetrator is yet to be subdued. Scores of violence have been reported in many parts of the country including Sunyani, Odododiodio, and Eastern Region.
In all these what is very loud and deafening is the silence of the police service and the security agencies. It is our opinion that such officious silence is undesirable. The security forces must be seen working faithfully, deligently and professionally without fear or favour.
The electoral commission of Ghana which is seen as the most experienced in Africa south of the Sahara has also come under intense criticism. In many circumstances it has been seen singing the same song with the ruling party. This is not a healthy development since such acts compromise the credibility and integrity of the the process. We believe that only a credible election would be accepted by the citizens of Ghana. 

 

The media is expected to play a neutral role and give accurate report, however some of them have side stepped their professional duty and have engaged in sensationalism and biased reportage. A lot of circumspection is needed by the media to ensure that Ghana comes out of the elections peacefully.
Ethnicity,which is the quickest button to triggering conflicts has also gained deep grounds in the 2016 electoral process with the first gentleman of the land playing a key role in this regard. This is very unfortunate and must not be condoned at all.
These challenges if not expeditiously dealt with may have a dire consequence on the country.
We therefore call on all professionals who have a role to play, especially the electoral commission, the security agencies and politicians to exhibit highest professionalism to ensure a peaceful and credible elections.
PPG also calls on the international community to make conscious efforts to force all stake holders to succumb to best practices in the elections.
In this regard we do not 

only support moves by the UK and USA to freeze vivas of politicians until the election has ended, we also call on them and all other countries to stop issuing new vivas to politicians, and all major stake holders until the election has ended peacefully. This would ensure that each and everyone of them works as an ambassador for peace in the elections.
As a professional body, our doors are open to the electoral commission, the security agencies, the political parties, the international community and all other stake holders in this election, for offering both technical and legal advice.
We wish Ghana a peaceful and credible election that would be accepted by all. 
Long live Ghana, long live PPG.

FOREIGN ADVERTS BEEN AIRED IN “MAHAMA BRANDED ” BUSSES EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT. 

​FOREIGN ADVERTS BEEN AIRED IN “MAHAMA BRANDED” BUSSES – Eye Witness Account 


I joined one of the Mahama brandes buses from Kasoa to Kaneshie this morning and you won’t believe what I saw. 
The bus had tv inside and instead of them to allow Ghanaian companies to place their advert which will one way generate revenue for the nation, they were rather airing an advert of the company who manufactured the buses in China. 
We (Ghanaians) are hereby demanding answers from government on whether the adverts are paid for or not, if yes, what’s the cost but if no Ghanaians deserve to know why.
This is truly gross incompetent and mismanagement on the part of government we have ever had in Ghana.
Remember during John Agyakum kufour’s era, churches placed their adverts on the buses not for free, but to generate revenue for the nation. John Mahama and his people are truly sending the progress of our mother country backwards. 
Because if you have a way of making money from your country for Development and you go back for loans for Development, I simply can’t think far.

NANA IS THE MAN FOR YOU. 

​NANA IS THE MAN FOR YOU – REBECCA AKUFO-ADDO

 

Hundreds of voters have responded positively to Mrs. Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo’s message to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP, as she campaigns in the Greater Accra Region.

At La Dadekutopon, she met some youth groups, who pledged to vote for Nana Addo and the Parliamentary candidate, Vincent Odotei Sowah. Mrs Akufo- Addo assured the youth, many of whom are unemployed, that job creation is top on the NPP agenda for growth and policies like the one district one factory, one million dollars for each constituency and sound economic management would ensure jobs for the youth.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo also said a Nana Addo- led NPP government would make the free maternal healthcare, the school feeding programme and the NHIS work, to make life better for all Ghanaians. She promised to use her position as first lady, to empower the youth thorough skills development and other training, if Nana Addo becomes President of Ghana.

Mrs. Akufo –Addo later donated what she called her “widow’s mite” to fisher folks  at Chorkor, who lost property as a result of damage caused by tidal waves and told them a Nana Addo- led government would support women in the fish smoking industry, with more environmentally friendly equipment and ensure  they benefit from MASLOC loans. She also assured them that premix will be in constant supply, while coastal sanitation will seriously be tackled during Nana’s presidency.STORY BY OSIKANI.

Accompanied by the Parliamentary candidate of Ablekuma Central Constituency, Ebenezer Nii Narh Nartey, Mrs Akufo-Addo, called on the Chief of Samara line Chief Issu Something where she told them to disregard the propaganda that an NPP government would deport them from Ghana, adding “ my husband has always fought for individual rights and freedoms and would never infringe on the human rights of anyone. Again be assured that Nana Addo who is committed to improving the lives of all Ghanaians, regardless of tribe, religion, gender or class, would be a father for all”

At the   Sukura and Zongo markets in Ablekuma central, Mrs Akufo-Addo, had lively discussions with the market women, on the tough economic and business environment and asked them to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP to fix the economy and make the business environment better for their businesses to thrive. “You know that as women we are the major beneficiaries of an improved NHIS, free maternal healthcare and free quality SHS, so on December 7, vote for these social interventions for you and your children; vote for Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP”

Mrs Akufo-Addo  also met drivers at the Kaneshie-Dansoman and Takoradi stations, and asked them to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP, who would ensure measures that woul drive down the cost of doing business for them.

At the Ayawaso North Constituency, Mrs Akufo-Addo who was accompanied by the NPP parliamentary candidate—Aminu M.Z called on the Moslem Council in Nima. She appealed to the community to vote for Nana Addo on his third try, adding that the promise of a Zongo development fund would be fulfilled. “My husband is a man of peace someone you can trust. Don’t believe those who say the Zongo Development fund is mere campaign talk. He means it, so give him the opportunity to prove to you, he is a man of his words”.  

Mrs.Akufo-Addo, later visited the Mamobi market, where she commissioned a structure constructed for the market women by her and the parliamentary candidate Aminu M.Z and appealed to the market women to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP, to develop Ghana.
