The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo has rubbished an advert running on social media which claims he will drive away settlers in Ghana if he wins the 2016 elections.
According to a statement from the main opposition party, no such advert has been sanctioned by the campaign office, adding the “cooked advert” comes as “no surprise” to them.
“We wish to state, unequivocally, that no such advert has been commissioned by the 2016 campaign of the New Patriotic Party. Indeed, any official adverts for the party will also be sighted on the official pages of the campaign (www.nanaakufoaddo.org; newpatrioticparty.org; www.iamfornana.com; www.facebook.com/NAkufoAddo; www.twitter.com/NAkufoAddo; and www.youtube.com/NAkufoAddo),” Anthony Karbo, a communications executive of the NPP said in a statement.
Below is the full statement:
RE: NPP TO DRIVE AWAY SETTLERS FROM GHANA ADVERT
The attention of the New Patriotic Party has been drawn to an advert running on social media, which is being falsely and mischievously described by known NDC propagandist on Facebook as NPP campaign adverts.
Of particular interest is one advert which states that Nana Akufo-Addo, as President, will drive out settlers and non-Ghanaians should he be given the mandate by Ghanaians.
We wish to state, unequivocally, that no such advert has been commissioned by the 2016 campaign of the New Patriotic Party. Indeed, any official adverts for the party will also be sighted on the official pages of the campaign (www.nanaakufoaddo.org; newpatrioticparty.org; www.iamfornana.com; www.facebook.com/NAkufoAddo; www.twitter.com/NAkufoAddo; and www.youtube.com/NAkufoAddo).
On top of that, this fraudulent video uses the NPP’s 2012 campaign signature, including slogan.
In this critical election year where desperation and dirty propaganda are the hallmarks of a ruling government, who for no solid economic record to fall back on are now resorting to evil and crude tactics to enable them hold on to power, this “cooked advert” comes as no surprise to us in the NPP.
Nana Akufo-Addo has stated his position clearly on the Fulani/cattle crisis. Whilst campaigning in Drobonso in the Sekyere Afram Plains constituency in the Ashanti Region on Saturday, March 26, 2016, he cited the example of Brazil that has a cattle population of about 213 million, but does not face the type of problems Ghanaians face. He stated that, as President, he would replicate the Brazil success story in Ghana.
“Brazil has put in place policies and measures to ensure that the animals are ranched and therefore do not ‘mingle’ with the human populace. These are the kinds of policies we will put in place if we win the election to ensure this situation is curbed, once and for all,” Nana Akufo-Addo has said.
We urge all well-meaning Ghanaians to, once again, treat with the utmost contempt this vile propaganda from the stables of the ruling government.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Continues To Instigate Beef With Chief Keef & Chicago Rappers
Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t concerned about his well being, apparently.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s is no stranger when it comes to beef. In fact, it seems as if he thrives off of it. While his feud with Trippie Redd has died down, he’s been beefing with many Chicago rappers, namely Chief Keef and the GBE crew. Over the weekend, Chief Keef was shot at during his stay at The W in Time Square. Thankfully, the shooters missed but many speculated that Tekashi 6ix9ine may have had some sort of involvement in it. The “GUMMO” rapper has completely denied it but it looks like he’s still into trolling the Chicago emcee and his crew.
Tekashi 6ix9ine can be considered more of a troll than a rapper and his latest Instagram post might further prove this. The rapper shared an incredibly short clip on his Instagram saying: “How mad would y’all be if I said I was the new king of Chicago?”
He’s clearly warranting a response from one of the Chicago rappers, whether it’s in person or on Instagram. The rapper caused an uproar after he claimed to be the “King Of New York.” 50 Cent may have co-signed it but there was definitely many others that haven’t been feeling the sentiment.
Earlier today, 6ix9ine was interviewed on TMZ where he spoke about the situation with Chief Keef. He completely denied any sort of involvement in the shooting, although it coincidentally happened after 6ix9ine reignited the feud with Chief Keef.
“I guess Chief Keef, he’s a gangsta rapper. He promotes violence. I mean, I guess he has a lot of beef on these streets. I don’t know who he’s beefing with that’ll hurt him but it’s definitely not me. I’m actually a fan,” he said.
