Hon. Seth Kwame Acheampong, Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Defense and Interior, has called for investigation of Chairman for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo over the leaked tape.
In an interview with Ark FM’s Ogya Kasebo, Mr. Acheampong, who is Member of Parliament for Mpraeso, explained the investigation would help to unravel the mystery surrounding the leaked tape of the NDC chairman.
“If the content of the tape is true I will be very disappointed because the NDC chairman should know better, since he has occupied many positions including as a District Chief Executive (DCE), Member of Parliament (MP), Minister and the security of the country should be a priority to him”, he added.
Mr Ofosu Ampofo has come under fire following the
emergence of an audio recording of a meeting held at the party’s headquarters,
which exposed the intent of some NDC stalwarts and sympathizers against some
members of the ruling party, the clergy and the Chairperson of the Electoral
Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensa.
The audio has been authenticated by the first deputy national communication director of the NDC, Kwaku Boahen.
Ofosu Ampofo confirmed in the said tape that the NDC vigilante group, Azorka
boys were bused from Tamale to Ayawaso West Wuogon to cause mayhem, but were
repelled by the Kandahar Boys from Tamale who had been recruited by the national
The NDC Chairman also suggested that covert operations like abductions and kidnappings could be used ‘to tame’ political opponents ahead of the 2020 general election.
Mr. Acheampong further debunked the notion that the purported audio of the ill-intent of the NDC towards the 2020 elections suggested that the security of the country was not stable however, calling for immediate investigation of the tape and the later.
“The state of security in the country is in good health with the numerous measures implemented by the government, so the comment by the NDC chairman does not in any way suggest that the security of the country is at stake”, he stressed.
