Kokofu is a coward – Ade Coker

ade-cokerThe Greater Accra chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Kobina Ade Coker has described the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama, Henry Kwabena Kokofu as a ‘coward’ who lacks the ‘balls to execute herculean tasks.’

The vociferous NPP MP made the headlines last weekend after he filed to contest the Bantama seat as an Independent candidate.

Kokofu who is currently in the Germany said yesterday that he took the decision as a result of certain problems he has been facing in the party.

He however claimed that he has ordered his representatives to go to the offices of the Electoral Commission (EC) in the region and withdraw his nomination forms.
“I have not resigned from the NPP and will never resign and I’m not ready to talk about what pushed me to take that decision. I have called my people in Ghana to go to the EC and withdraw my nomination,” he stated.

Reacting to this, Ade Coker said he sees the U-turn by Kokofu as an action borne out of fear and not out of genuine convictions.

According to Ade Coker, the fear of been victimized by NPP supporters especially persons who are not in the Alan/Afoko camp of the party caused him to rescind the decision.

“Kokofu is a coward…he wanted to test the waters but saw it was hot and hence decided to pull his legs and that is not brave enough…,” Ade Coker said on UTV Tuesday.

Ade Coker continued that Chairman Kokofu is suffering same fate as other persons in the Alan/Afoko camp in the NPP.

These perceived Alan/Afoko boys, he said are being sidelined and prevented from exercising their right to free speech in the NPP which according to him is heading to a crush under the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He further called on the Bantama MP to thank his stars that the EC wasn’t immediately accepting the filing fees as he wouldn’t have had his money refunded to him.

“What I can bet is that Kokofu would never have rescinded his decision to contest as an independent candidate if he had filed and paid the GHC10, 000 cedis filing fees…,” he said.

But his views were not subscribed to by the NPP MP for Nsawam-Adoagyiri, Frank Annoh-Dompreh who insisted the NPP is a party that gives opportunities to all irrespective of your views.

He said it is as a result of this that the likes of him are now legislators.

Annoh-Dompreh accused the NDC of ‘getting disturbed anytime they hear of unity in the NPP’.
