Celebrity lawyer, Maurice Ampaw is claiming credit for President Akufo Addo’s political victory in last year’s hotly contested presidential elections.
According to Maurice Ampaw, his hunger strike played significant spiritual role is securing victory for the then opposition New Patriotic Party.
It will be recalled the private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw declared a ten day hunger strike in protest of the pardon granted jailed Montie FM presenter, Mugaabe Maase and two others-Godwin Ako Gunn and Alistair Tyron Nelson for remarks made against the Chief Justice.
Maurice Ampaw said as part of the protest, he will go on a nationwide anti-Mahama campaign to thwart his second term bid in the upcoming elections.
Speaking to host of Abusua Nkmo, Kwame Adinkra at the time, Maurice Ampaw said “President Mahama will pay dearly politically for freeing the Montie 3…he cannot do things to please his party to the detriment of majority of Ghanaians.”
But in another interview today on Abusua FM’s Abusua Mmre hosted by Ekow Mankatah (Mr. Katah) and Nana Hemaa, Maurice Ampaw claimed “during my hunger strike, I told God to punish Mahama politically for disrespecting Ghanaians.”
“It got to a point where arrogance of power and abuse of incumbency became too rampant and we needed spiritual intervention to curtail that,” he added.
