The Akufo-Addo, Bawumia Presidency has suddenly found its voice after former President John Mahama sent a strong warning to the Western Togoland secessionist insurgents in the Volta Region to stop their activities.
After the Akufo-Addo Jubilee House had remained mum over the recent incursion by the group in Mepe and Aveyime, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has suddenly come out to denounce the group.
According to Bawumia, the Togolanders are criminals that the government will not negotiate with.
He made the comment in an interview he granted to Accra-based Asempa FM. According to him, negotiating “with criminals does not make sense.”
Many are wondering why it took the Akufo-Addo Jubilee House so long to react to the secessionists. The group first struck in Mepe and Aveyime where they raided Police stations and carted away weapons from the armoury.
They later also attacked a district Assembly and burnt an STC bus. As part of the drama, the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa has also been outed by the group as a long time comrade and financier of the group’s activities.
Somehow, through it all, the Jubilee House had remained silent with many wondering if President Akufo-Addo is still the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces.
Meanwhile, many are wondering why the Volta regional Minister is still at post after the secessionist terrorist named him as a long time financier and comrade.
Archibald Letsa’s office, the Volta Regional Coordinating Council building had been decorated with Western Togoland flag as part of the recent incursion by the group.
