They left their bags and laptops: Mac Manu’s ‘old’ interview confirms Rojo and Kpessa-Whyte’s statement

Published

on

In the ongoing election petition hearing at the Supreme Court, a video of the New Patriotic Party’s Campaign Chairman for the 2020 general election, Peter MacManu, which has resurfaced, seems to indicate some iota of reality in statements made by witnesses to the petitioner.

One of the controversial parts of the petitioner’s witness statement states that John Dramani Mahama’s electoral agents were sent out of the strong room of the Electoral Commission, moments before the 2020 presidential election results were announced.

Rojo Mettle Nunoo’s assertion, corroborated by Dr. Kpessa-Whyte, suggests that the two members of the National Democratic Congress were asked to send a message to Mr. John Dramani Mahama by the EC Commissioner, Jean Mensa.

However, the witnesses claimed that the intention of the Commissioner was to send them out and take advantage of the opportunity to announce the results in favor of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

As part of their defense, they claim that, as indicated by the lawyer for the respondents, they never wanted to leave their place, but left in good faith, having been questioned by the EC head herself and that it accounted for them leaving their laptops and bags in the strong room.

During cross-examination, however, Justin Amenuvor, lawyer for the Electoral Commission, told Dr Kpessa-Whyte that he and his colleague had only left the Strong Room because they knew that their candidate had lost.

JB Danquah Wanted To Name The Newly Independent Gold Coast ‘Akan Land’ – Kwesi Pratt Jnr

Managing editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has debunked claims by adherents of the Danquah-Busia tradition that Joseph Boakye (JB) Danquah suggested the name ‘Ghana’ to be given to the newly independent Gold Coast Colony.

Speaking on his television station, Pan African TV, Kwesi Pratt said J.B Danquah actually wanted to name the country ‘Akan Land’!

“The name J.B. Danquah suggested for the Gold Coast was Akan Land. Can you imagine that we were struggling for independence one of the people said after independence, we should call this place Akan Land?” he said.

Pratt said the name ‘Ghana’ was suggested by a priest and historian who made the connection between the historical Ghana empire and the Gold Coast.

He also added that whilst the Danquah-led faction wanted a fragmented nation, Kwame Nkrumah was the one who fought for a united nation and even brought in Transvolta Togoland.

“There is this argument that he [J.B Danquah] is the one who actually suggested the name Ghana, it is not true. The historical record is there and clear. Lord Lugard and his wife, even before then there was a priest who had traced the link between the Gold Coast and the new Ghanaian empire. The record is there and clear.

“The name J.B. Danquah suggested for the Gold Coast was Akan Land…The referendum which led to the inclusion of British Togoland, the campaign was led by Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. There is no dispute about it. Ghana has always not been like this. Something went into bringing Trans-Volta Togoland, consolidating Ashanti space in Ghana, and bringing the Northern Territory to Ghana. What did J.B. Danquah do to bring Trans-Volta Togoland to Ghana? What did he do?” he queried.
