According to former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Alhaji Innusah Fuseini, the impeachment petition against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is more than likely to fail because the Minority in Parliament lacks the needed number of votes to push it through if the speaker eventually grants the request.
He mentioned that a decision of this kind will necessitate the approval of one-third of Parliament’s members.
However, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmakers have stated that they will not support it, implying that the opposition legislators will lack the necessary numbers to carry it out if they also find wisdom in the petition.
On Thursday, April 21, three people, Issifu Seidu Kudus Gbeadese, Elikem Kotoko, and Stephen Kwabena Attuh, petitioned Parliament to begin impeachment proceedings against President Akufo-Addo over the ‘Serwaa Broni’ controversy.
if the allegations raised by one Evelyn Aidoo Alias Serwaa Broni against the President are found to be valid, it would amount to “human rights abuse, abuse of office, exposing the security of Ghana to external threat… as well as …dragging the name of the high office of President into disrepute,” according to the three petitioners.

Serwaa Broni claimed to have had an intimate connection with President Akufo-Addo, among other things.
This further resulted in death threats, and the use of Mr. Hopeson Adroye, the Deputy National Security Coordinator in charge of the Airport, and other national security operatives to stage an armed robbery attack on her in order to recover evidence of the said encounter with the President from her phone and other electronic gadgets.
From her narrative, the attack left her traumatized, which, if true, would constitute a violation of the President’s oath of office.
