A former General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Yaa Jantuah, has disclosed how she used to shield President Akufo-Addo from arrest due to his vision of becoming President one day.

Madam Jantuah, discussing how she became a politician at a Thought Leadership programme organised by Onua FM Wednesday, June 12, 2024, indicated that she was born into a political home where her father and uncles were all into politics.

She narrates members of the Movement for Freedom and Justice at the time used to hold meetings at her father’s residence at Asokwa, a suburb of Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.

According to her, the documents of the movement was in her custody, the time her father made her meet people like Paa Willie of the Big Six, Akufo-Addo, Afrifa and a host of others.

She explains the police used to raid her father’s residence at the time to arrest leadership of the Movement who used to meet there.

Nana Yaa Jantuah disclosed to Nana Yaa Brefo Danso, moderator of the event, how she was made to whisk Akufo-Addo through the back door to escape arrest since it was deemed a ‘taboo’ for someone aspiring to be president one day to be arrested.

“I remember the Movement for Freedom and Justice, they used to meet in our house so their documents were in my custody. So whenever I take their documents, my father will tell me that I’ve seen Paa Willie, I have seen Nana Addo, Bomti, my uncle KSP, and will tell me their lives are in my hands so whenever the police come on raid, I will keep the documents and send them away through the back gate.

“So, what they used to do was that, they said Nana Addo was going to be present so he wasn’t supposed to be arrested so whenever the police use the front gate, then I escape with him through the back gate. They used to raid our home in Asokwa. Afrifa and others were all part. So my father always told me to be bold,” she relayed.

The programme also hosted Oheneyere Gifty Anti, a renowned broadcaster and Dzifa Gomashie, Member of Parliament for Ketu South, to discuss on the theme: Women in Politics and their Impact on Governance.
