Nana Is The Original Asomdweehene …Says Methodist Bishop
The Methodist Bishop of the Obuasi Diocese, Rt. Rev. Stephen Richard Bosomtwi-Ayensu has attributed the current peace being enjoyed in the country to the decision by the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2012 presidential elections, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo to resort to court.
He explained that the outcome of the 2008 and 2012 general elections could have plunged the country into unceasing political violence but for the patriotic stance taken by the NPP flagbearer.
Speaking at the inauguration of the Brahabebome circuit of the church at Obuasi yesterday, the Methodist Bishop stressed: “we are not doing politics here, but if there is any title that best describes Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo, then this man must be called the better and original Asomdweehene”
The Methodist Bishop who was delivering a sermon on the need for Ghanaians to resort to dialogue at all times and called for prayers for Nana Addo, adding “wherever this man is, we greet him and we will pray for him”.
He added that countries like Kenya and Cote d’voire went through war by the same electoral disputes and that if Ghana had been spared similar ordeal, then it means Nana Akufo-Addo had contributed significantly in promoting the peace being enjoyed now in Ghana.
It would be recalled that the New Patriotic Party (NPP), led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Dr. Bawumia and Jake Obetsebi Lamptey in the aftermath of the 2012 presidential elections, petitioned the Supreme Court to challenge the validity of John Dramani Mahama as president of Ghana.
In the opinion of the NPP, the election results were rigged in favour of the incumbent, President John Mahama, who they claim colluded with EC officials to manipulate the results.
The Methodist Bishop of the Obuasi Diocese, Rt. Rev. Stephen Richard Bosomtwi-Ayensu challenged leaders of the Brahabebome circuit, which is the 16th in the Diocese to work with dedication to ensure the growth of the church.
