Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Elvis Afriyie Ankrah says the government is trying to divert attention from its incompetencies by harassing Madina lawmaker, Francis Xavier Sosu.
In his view, Sosu’s issue is being used to intimidate Ghanaians from demonstrating against the economic difficulties they are saddled with at the moment.
Mr Afriyie Ankrah told TV3’s Evelyn Tengmaa in an interview on Friday November 5 that “It is an agenda, the NPP is under pressure, they stole the elections and they cannot manage the economy. Do you know the debt to GDP ratio? It is 90 per cent.
“They are going back to the IMF that they condemned. The country is in a mess, nothing is working. So, these are all diversionary tactics, they want to use fear and intimidation.
“This country does not belong to Akufo-Addo and his people, it belongs to all of us.
“You cannot have one section of the people being treated one way and another being treated the other way. What about Hawa Koomson who fired the gun? She herself said ‘I fired the gun’.”
