A member of the Council of Elders of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Ato Ahwoi, has sounded a note of caution to the Nana Addo-led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government warning the ruling party of severe repercussions if it tries to suppress the will of Ghanaians, especially members of the opposition party.
According to him, the NDC will resist any attempt by the NPP government to subject them to any form of intimidation and injustice with the active connivance of state agencies.
As sighted on peacefmonline.com, he was commenting on the invitation by the Criminal Investigations Department [CID] of the Police Service to the NDC’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, to appear before the state security department on Thursday, May 9, 2019 to assist with investigations.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM News@6pm on Thursday, the NDC stalwart was bewildered by the action of the Police Service to invite someone to assist in investigations when that same person is before court on “similar trumped up” charges.
“If you think you have fresh charges against him, go to court and amend the charges,” a furious Ato Ahwoi stated.
Recounting how he was put before court 48 times in 2001, despite only two witnesses testifying against him, the usually calm Ato Ahwoi vowed in his personal capacity and that of the NDC, not to allow the same thing repeat itself.
“We know why the NPP is behaving like this and we will not allow them to oppress us . . . If he ( Prez Akufo-Addo) believes this country is governed by rule of law but he wants to violate or contravene the laws of the land, we will reply him in equal measure.
“The NPP is behaving like oppressors and by the dictates of the country’s national anthem, we will continue to resist them until they stop. If they (NPP) do not want peace, we will also not give them Peace,” he warned.
