Lawyer and former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for North Dayi constituency, George Loh, says the charges leveled against the NDC National Chairman, Ofosu Ampofo are frivolous.
National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo was at the Police Headquarters Monday, March 4 upon invitation following the emergence of a tape recording of a meeting at the party’s headquarters.
The audio, which has been authenticated by NDC Communication member, Kwaku Boahen, exposes the evil intents of some party stalwarts and sympathizers against some members of the ruling party, the Clergy and the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah.
In the said tape, Ofosu Ampofo confirmed that the NDC vigilante group, Azorka boys were bussed from Tamale to Ayawaso West Wuogon to cause mayhem, but they were repelled by the Kandahar Boys from Tamale who had been recruited by national security.
Ofosu Ampofo also suggested that covert operations like abductions and kidnappings could be used to tame political opponents ahead of the 2020 election. The NDC has, however, maintains that the tape was doctored.
Speaking to the issue on Atinka FM’s Am Drive with Ekourba Gyasi, lawyer and former Member of Parliament for North Dayi constituency, George Loh stated that the whole saga is a mere ploy by the opposition NPP to use the Police to intimidate the national Chairman of the NDC, Ofosu Ampofo and demoralize the NDC as a party in general.
He stated that “even if the allegations in the audio are authenticated, people have said worse things in this country”.
“Are the NPP more Ghanaian than others do we have separate laws for the NPP and separate laws for the NDC? Kennedy Agyapong has said worse things in this country, even the death of Investigative Journalist Ahmed Suale is still hanging,” he fumed.
