Nana Shocks NDC Protestors In London

President Akufo-Addo pulled a major surprise on some supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in London at the weekend.



That was when he had gone to the prestigious London School of Economics (LSE) to deliver an address at the ‘Africa Summit’ under the theme, “Africa at work: educated, employed and empowered.”

Even before he arrived at the school, located at Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE, UK, the protestors, numbering about 20, had gathered in front of the entrance.

Their mission was to register their protest against the Ghana-United States military agreement which seeks to allow the US government to bring its soldiers to Ghana for training and deployment purposes – a standard military practice the world over.

The protesters, most of who were adorned in red attires, arm and head bands, did not only brandish the Ghana flag, but also bore placards with various inscriptions amidst chants of ‘Akufo-Addo is a traitor,’ ‘Ghana, not for sale.’

Unfortunately for them however, the convoy of the president did not stop for them to get the attraction they wanted, putting them in a fix.

After delivering an inspiring address to a packed auditorium, President Akufo-addo emerged beaming with smiles when he saw the NDC protestors at the premises of the school.

As he was being ushered into the waiting vehicle, the president waved at the handful of protestors believed to have been led by one Kofi Adoli, a known NDC activist.

Not even the advice of the security detail would deter him. He walked past the open door of the vehicle and waved at them to the surprise of the many who had gathered there.

But that was not enough for the protesters, some of who decided to deride him simply because of the over-flogged Ghana-US military agreement which details the opposition NDC claims are a virtual sellout of the country – even though the pact was begun by previous NDC administrations.

As the presidential convoy started moving, the protesters had no other option than to turn back.
