Ablakwa Accuses Gov’t of Reducing Ghana Armed Forces to Citizen Inspection Unit
Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party of reducing the Ghana Armed Forces to a citizen inspection unit.
According to him, the Ghana Armed Forces are respected worldwide with the United Nations mentioning the Ghana Armed forces with pride because of their exploits.
He made this statement at a press conference held by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the Volta region over the deployment of some military personnel to the area.
“Why is Akufo-Addo, as commander in chief, reducing the Ghana Armed forces to some citizenship inspection unit? Why? That the respected, revered military and we have friends in there. They are not enthused one bit. They are boiling with anger, reducing them to a citizenship inspection Unit. (They look and you and say) you, you are a Togolese you can’t come here, go back. Is that the Armed Forces is for?” he quizzed.
