"Stop posting pictures with Prez. Mahama online" – Minister to slim ladies

Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has cautioned all fair coloured and slim ladies who have posed for a photo session with President Mahama in the past against posting them on any social media site because they are at risk.

According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not hesitate to destroy anyone’s reputation, in their bid to make sure the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) equals its bad record in the fight against narcotics.

To him, it is not fair what some political party activists of the NPP are doing to young Ghanaian ladies just because they are looking for a “twin”.

“..They are looking for a ‘twin’. They are looking for an ‘ataa’ in the cocaine matter…if you are a Ghanaian lady, fair and slim, and you have ever taken a picture with the president and you have ever put it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you are under risk.

“Now that is the operation. That is the modus operandi. So please Ghanaian ladies, especially our NDC women Organizers who took a lot of pictures with the President. Please don’t put up those pictures because you are all now at risk,” the Deputy Education Minister said on radio Gold’s “Alhaji And Alhaji” programme last Saturday.

This advise was given during a discussion of what many believe is an unfair treatment meted out to NDC sympathiser, Francisca Adjei on the publication of her pictures in the media portraying her as Nayeli Ametefe, who was arrested at Heathrow Airport on charges of drug trafficking.

Pictures of Francisca Adjei adorned in NDC colours; standing by a Hyundai i-10 went viral when the news of Nayeli Ametefe’s arrest broke creating the impression she had been arrested, but Francisca Adjei quickly came out with a statement to refute the publications.

But Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa is of the conviction that the damage to her reputation would be long lasting and all ladies who have pictures with the president must refrain from posting them online in order not to fall victim to the orchestrations of the NPP.
