Former National Organizer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC], Kofi Adams, has described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as a “hypocrite” for his call to disband party militia in Ghana’s politics after Manasseh Azure’s exposé.
Joy News reported that a militia group associated with the governing New Patriotic Party [NPP] is being trained at the Christiansburg Castle, popularly called the Osu Castle in Accra.
The group named ‘De-Eye Group’ has been meeting at the facility for close to two years – investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni claimed in his exposé.
President Nana Addo is believed to be aware of the operations of the ‘De-Eye Group’ at the important state facility classified as a security zone.
Manasseh’s exposé has, however, raised many questions on President Akufo-Addo’s recent call for both NPP and NDC to dialogue on disbanding the party militia during his State of the Nation Address.
Speaking on the issue on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Kofi Adams was of a view that the President’s ‘two-faced’ approach of handling issues mainly on parties militia has been exposed.
“The President is a hypocrite. He doesn’t mean well in his speeches. According to the video [exposé], he [President Nana Addo] is aware of the vigilante camp at the castle, yet wants NPP and NDC to dialogue on vigilantism,” Kofi Adams said.
