Serwaa Broni’s allegations call for Akufo-Addo’s impeachment – Twum-Barimah

Private legal practitioner Alexander Twum-Barimah has indicated that the allegations by Canada-based Ghanaian Serwaa Broni against President Nana Akufo-Addo has brought the presidency to disrepute.

Serwaa Broni born Evelyn Aidoo has got social media talking after she granted an interview to Kevin Taylor on US-based Loud Silence TV about her affair with Ghana’s president.

In the interview on Easter Sunday, Serwaa Broni alleged that President Akufo-Addo sent thugs to torment her after having a sexual intercourse with her.

Narrating how it all happened she said the president abused her through a former national security coordinator at the Kotoka International Airport, Hopeson Adorye, who sent thugs her way when they realised she had naked pictures of Akufo-Addo.

Analysing the legal side of the issue, Twum-Barimah noted that the way the presidency has been reduced to following the revelations of Serwaa Broni calls for the initiation of an impeachment process against Akufo-Addo.

He quoted Article 69 (1) (a) and (b) stressing that the conduct of the president, per the video clips and evidences available and the silence of the presidency on the matter makes Akufo-Addo a candidate of impeachment.

Article 69, he said, defines what will trigger a president’s impeachment, ND added that “when the president behaves in a way that disgraces his office, he can be impeached.”

“His seat is the highest office of the land and that is why he swore an oath before Parliament and we know Parliament is a full representation of Ghana,”he added.

Twum-Barimah’s comment comes on the back of a move by the Minority Caucus to probe the matter and possibly begin an impeachment process.

Serwaa Broni’s Security

As the matter is being discussed by some media houses, a deputy national youth organiser of the NDC, Ruth Dela Seddoh has called for protection for Evelyn.

She believes Serwaa Broni’s revelations has endangered her life and has therefore called for activists to fight for the Canada-based Ghanaian woman.

Reacting to what she described as an impending danger towards Serwaa Broni on the Gumbe Show on TV XYZ, the politician quizzed, “where are the feminists and human rights activists?”

Currently, some three persons have also petitioned the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, to take the matter up.
