Ofosu Ampofo’s leaked audio doctored – Sammy Gyamfi
The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi says a tape circulating in which their National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is heard saying that the party deployed its thugs the “Azorka Boys” during the recent Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election which was characterized by violence was doctored and untrue.
A leaked tape purported to be the voice of NDC national chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo in a meeting with party communicators said “we’re going to take her [EC boss] to the cleaners.”
“As for the EC chair, we must wage a relentless war on this EC chair. Me, she doesn’t want to see my face,” Ofosu-Ampofo allegedly said at the meeting which took place after the Ayawaso by-election.
As part of strategic communication plans for the NDC going into the 2020 elections, Ofosu-Ampofo also gave his blessings for the communicators to verbally attack the Peace Council chairman Professor Emmanuel Asante.
“For the first time, I will endorse insulting the National Peace Council Chair,” he said to cheers from the NDC Communicators. Mr. Ofosu Ampofo is yet to comment on the tape and whether it is his voice.
However the National Communication Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi responding to the leaked tape purported to be the voice of the NDC Chairman said, “…the NDC is fully aware of evil and wicked plots by certain elements within National Security and Government to spy on meetings of its officials, record and in turn doctor such recordings for their spiteful ends,”
Describing the alleged “state-sponsored espionage” as “dastardly and shameful”. Mr Gyamfi said the NDC “is currently considering all legal options available to it and will take appropriate steps to halt this phenomenon immediately”.
Mr Gyamfi added that they “are not surprised about this act of desperation on the part of the ruling NPP” in the wake of an impending damning expose by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, on illegal mining popularly known as ‘galamsey’.
