A Phone Call from Nana Akufo-Addo

1763
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. NPP's Presidential candidate for Ghana's 2008 Elections
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. NPP

When I saw a call on my cellular phone from a number +233 10 0000, my heart missed a beat. And why not? This was a very strange phone number that I know does not exist but I still answered the phone, albeit cautiously. Lo and behold, it was the voice of the ruling NPP’s Presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, speaking in Twi and essentially asking me to vote for him. The message lasted exactly 45 seconds.

I could tell that it was a recorded message. This must be one of the last minute campaign strategies by the New Patriotic Party, to sway the floating voters. I can see that we are indeed moving forward with technology in Ghana.

Unfortunately Nana, I am not an eligible voter. All the same, may the best man win!

  1. 😯 😳 Nana Akuufo Addo doesn’t deserve the seat . Insha Allahu someone esle will win this vote either Paa Kwesi Ndoum or John E . Attah Mills. All the best and Happy E-dil Adha

  2. Yeah, same thing happened to me. The call came in at 8:47pm on the 3rd, and lasted 43secs. Only that in this recording Nana Akufo-Addo spoke in English. I must say I was impressed by this technology gimmick even though it’s the equivalent of gsm spam. It sems that the calls were limited to a number of MTN customers. what happened to the other networks?

  3. 👿 he should get off he is not the right man for the seat srrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy brrrrrrrrrrrrrooooooooooo…………………

  4. it seems ghanaians dont what they are about.and its so rediculous when people dont have a taste and they are fisically and spiritualy illitrate.the world itself is moving forward how does ghanaians want us to move backwards.oooohhh iget what the ndc’s want to do:they want to come on power so that they go to other countries and borow and borrow and borrow until we become very depted country but God for-bead it will never happend God will never let it happend God is one-plog God he chooses Kings and make Kings? NPP no shaken we are God’ heart desire.

  5. have u ever seen a human being walking backwards before. NO We will move forward no matter what. Especially in this case of a run-off. Thanks.

    😆

    Nana all the way!!!

  6. please i could not vote the first tiime so please if u wont me to for u this time around, u should explain the reasons for the sudden decrease of fuel price. does thaat suggest thaat u could have done that very long time ago or suppose u won the first round, do you for seen the possibility of fuel decrease and the realise of the jailed drivers and the subsquent payment of their fine.

  7. PEOPLE CALL FOR REDUCTION IN ANSWER TO FALLING OIL PRICES. ANY COMPANY WORTH ITS SALT WILL OBSERVE THE MARKET BEFORE TAKING A STEP EXPECIALLY IN A VOLATILE INDUSTRY AS THE OIL INDUSTRY.

    NOW THAT THE OIL PRICES HAVE BEEN REDUCED, IN CONSONANCE WITH THE STABLE OIL MARKET AND THE REGULATIONS IN THE OIL INDUSTRY, WE ARE CRYING WOLF.

    I WONDER WHAT THE GHANAIAN PEOPLE WANT.

    GOVERNMENT IS IN POWER FOR FOUR YEARS. IN THE CASE OF THE NPP, THEIR MANDATE ENDS ON JANUARY 6TH.

    SO WHATS WRONG IF THE FUEL PRICE REDUCTION HAPPENS NOW OR ON JANUARY 6TH.

    IF I WERE KUFOUR, I WILL REDUCE THE PRICE TO GHC 10 AND SEE WHAT THE NEXT GOVERNMENT WILL DO.

    BUT SINCE THE KUFOUR GOVERNMENT IS NOT AN IRRESPONSIBLE ONE, MY GUESS IS THAT PETROLEUM PRICES WILL BE TIED TO WORLD PRICES.

  8. nana, i love u n foreever i will follow the npp. forward ever backwards never.u are goin to win this run off becos u are the right man for ghana. god bless u and all the faithful members of npp are prayin for your victory come this dec 28. rumours are goin round that kuffuor voted for atta, whether he likes u or not u are goin to win. akuffo all the way.

  9. i like the way u express yourself. u are gee. we have confidence in you and we know that u can do it. u did it when u were the foreign minister n u will do it when u become the president. u posses all the leadership qualities n i dont see that in attta. he is physically n politically unattractive n we ghanains want someone like your type.im campaigning for you. see u as the next president of ghana. luvv uuuuuuu. u are my man.

  10. I think Nana is the best man for Ghana cos when Ghanaians analyses his policies for this country,He should be the man to take this country to the promised land Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has promised. Indeed ghana should be transformed into an Industrialised country,an outstanding policy of Nana Addo. Kudos to President Kufuor for laying the foundation or this country in areas likr health,Education,unemployment problems etc. Good job Done to President kufuor for endorsing Nana Addo. NPP all the way. WOYA WOHIE.WE ARE MOVING FORWARD.YERE KO HEN ENIM.ZAMU GABA. But Nana i hate how u mention ZAMU GABA.its ZAMU GABA not ZAMU GA BA tru to bury GA AND BA TOGETHER or else it means something else. NANA,BAWUMIA AND NPP ARE THE WINNING TEAM.WE ARE INDEED MOVING FORWARD >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WITHOUT SEASON.THANKS BEN,SALTPOND. [email protected]

  15. Nana is a man of conviction. He fought for all Ghanaians to have the freedom we are all enjoying today. He is not arrogant and proud BUT BOLD AND DECISIVE able to call a spade a spade. He is not a hypocrite; not a pharisee. He is a real leader, tried and tested, dedicated and committed to the cause of Ghana and therefore Ghanaians.
    With God’s grace we shall have a new President in him.
    God bless Nana.
    God bless Ghana.
    We are moving forward!!!

  16. Nana will be a better President. He a VISIONARY. That is the kind of leaderhip Aficans need to propel our nations to the second world and first world status. We are fed up with people with small minds. This is not the time to joke with our destiny as a nation. It is a time to believe in our God-given abilities and move the Nation forward. Can we afford to let all these nations, some of which are not as much endowed as ours, to leave us behind? Please fellow Ghanaians, let us leave the times and people of rancour, vengeance and violence behind and rather match on to consolidate the liberty and the progress the nation is making.

    With the grace of the Almighty Jehovah God and as He gives us Nana Akufo-Addo as the next President we are surely going to get there very soon. Ghana is surely going to make it BIG in development:education, health, economy, industrialization, law and order.

    Lets believe in the abilities God has given us as Ghanaians. Let us be bold and determined. And as Nana rightly said: The sky will be our limit.

    May the good Lord bless Nana Akufo-Addo, our next President.
    May the Good Lord bless All Ghanaians.

  17. Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is the Best Man for Ghana so please lets vote massively for him and the NPP government. NANA, U ARE SECOND TO NONE……………

  18. David love your site. I want to comment on the recent elections held in Mother Ghana. First of all CONGRATS! to Ghana and Ghanaians for what we see as a peaceful election. From what I observed from Nigeria and the international news and my friends that I keep in touch with in Ghana, everyone assumed the ruling party was a shoe in. Of course there was the opposition that did not see it that way. But in all, the opposition won, there are alot of unhappy people right now and I am sure are still in shock of the out come. I now that Nana would someday make a good president with his expierience,and charisma,education and love for Ghana, but right now the voice of the people want Atta Mills.
    So whoever is in power the good people of Ghana should give them a chance and support The President Elect. Like in America it was and still is a shock that Barack Obama is President , No matter what, His race Or Atta Mills, affiliations, they will have to prove themselves worthy of their positions. I wish the NDC and Atta Mills the very best, the voice of the people is the voice of GOD and I thank the NPP for being good sports and not rigging and influencing the election committe and doing the right thing, that takes dignity and integrity ,especially in this part of the world were it is a do or die situation. Both parties seems to be credible as well as the other parties with PA Ndoum and Dr. Mahama. Ghana you are trying with politics and I am personally so Proud of you. Ghana keep your dignity and continue to be a shining star for West Africa, maybe the rest of us will try and immulate you. God Bless Mother Ghana-God Bless Africa!
