Busia Legacy Society Slams Anyidoho
Just when the dust seems to be settling over the Koku Anyidoho’s ‘treasonable’ statement descendants of Ghana’s first Prime Minister, Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia are demanding an apology from the camp of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) or face the wrath of their ancestor.
Speaking on Accra based Hot FM; the Convener for the Busia Legacy Society, Shadrach Abrefa Mensah, said the NDC Deputy Secretary’s statement has reopened wounds that family had tried in a long while to recover from.
According to him, “What is the morality of this man (Koku)…we are telling Koku Anyidoho to come again. We in the Brong Ahafo, we will deal with him both spiritually and physically.”
When asked how Koku would be dealt with spiritually, the Busia family representative said, apparitions of the late Abrefa Busia and Edward Akufo-Addo—former President and father of Ghana’s sitting President, would fight to preserve their dignity.
But how the Busia family intends to evoke the spirits of two gallant men who died over three decades ago is not known.
“We are Africans and we believe that the spirit of the dead still lingers…Busia’s Ghost is still around and if you speak against it, it would haunt you. If he (Koko Anyidoho) doesn’t say something sensible, Dr Busia’s Ghost will awaken,” Shadrach Abrefa Mensah threatened.
He continued: “He must come out and apologise and say that the utterances he made were senseless. We are tired of their propaganda and the people of this country are not ready to listen to their planted and rooted lies…if the NDC does not advice Koku Anyidoho for him to come and beg Dr Busia’s ghost, if he doesn’t come and beg Akufo-Addo’s father’s Ghost, he would have the full rigorous of the spirit.”
Wenchi, in the Brong Ahafo Region is the hometown of Dr Abrefa Busia and the youth of the town say, they would not allow sleeping dogs lie until Koku Anyidoho is punished for his unguarded statements.
Almost a fortnight ago, the Deputy Chief Scribe of the ruling opposition, NDC, was arrested after predicting the overthrow of president Nana Akufo-Addo.
