Tormenting Ofosu Ampofo won’t do you any good – Mahama to Gov’t
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has said actions by the Akufo-Addo led administration towards their party’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo won’t do any good to the already challenged economic hardship.
According to him, the police are only pandering to the government’s partisan politicking and attempts to disrespect the Chairman of the NDC, hence it will not in any way win the NPP the next election.
The letter from the CID to Mr Ofosu-Ampofo explained that some suspects picked up for interrogation in connection with some happenings in the country, suggest his involvement, as part of a grand scheme designed to cause fear and panic in the country.
This is the second of such invitations after the leaked tape saga two months ago. Mr Ofosu-Ampofo was heard on the tape, which he claims has been doctored, giving his support to NDC supporters to attack the Chairman of the National Peace Council and the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.
However Mahama speaking during his coastal tour, he indicated that the NPP was setting a very bad precedent because the investigations that warranted Mr. Ampofo’s questioning were borne out of government’s frustration over the failure to properly manage the economy.
“No amount of harassment of our National Chairman will save the NPP from defeat. Indeed it is a sign of desperation that the Chairman of our party is constantly being harassed by the police authorities. But let them remember that in whatever they do, they are setting precedent. You cannot take any frivolous and vexatious investigation and be inviting the Chairman of the biggest opposition party every day to the CID headquarters on very useless allegations,” he said.
“We are advising the NPP – if you deliver on your promises, the people of Ghana will look favourably at you but if you have failed don’t out of your desperation decide to harass our party officials. Whatever you do, you cannot escape the judgment of the people”, he added
