“You Are Politicizing The Issue” – NPP Big Wig Boldly Tells Randy Abbey In The Face

The Ghana Statistical Service is due to start this year’s census soon. The census was due to come off last year but due to Covid-19 it was postponed to this year. One of the matters that is arising in the wake of the census is the issue of whether the people of Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) will also be counted after they were left out of the Parliamentary elections of last year.

Today, Thursday, April 29, 2021 on ‘Good Morning Ghana’, Nana Fredua Agyeman Ofori-Atta, the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Okaikwei South clashed with Kofi Adams, the MP for Buem over the issue. According to Kofi Adams, the situation of the people of SALL should be resolved before the census in the area. He maintained that this was an anomaly that can be corrected so as to forestall any issues in the next election.

However, Nana Fredua disagreed and maintained that Kofi Adams was politicizing the issue. He wondered what will happen if the counting happened before the SALL issue is resolved. He hit at Randy Abbey, host of the show for allowing Kofi Adams to politicize a simple issue.

“Randy, you are politicizing the issue. You should have stopped him when he started. He did not speak to the issue, he only politicized it. Don’t politicize it because the people must be counted. Don’t create a situation that will make people doubt the process of counting” Nana insisted.

Randy explained that he was only worried that a situation that could have been solved long ago has been left to such a time when an important event like the census was coming up. However, Nana failed to understand and insisted that both Randy and Kofi were up to mischief.

Should the people of SALL participate in the census?
