Institutionalisation Of State-Sponsored Thuggery In Nana Addo’s Gov’t Cause Of Upheaval In Ejura – NDC

Published

on


The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has alleged that, the incidence which led to the death of Kaaka Macho and others was a state-sponsored thuggery unleashed by the Akufo-Addo.

According to the biggest opposition party, these thugs have become weapons of oppression for the tyrannical Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government.

This was revealed in a letter issued by the National communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi.

He also bemoaned the state of which the uniformed military officers pointed guns into the crowd killing unammed protesting civilians.

Below is the full statement…

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS CONSOLES FAMILIES OF VICTIMS OF STATE-SPONSORED EJURA KILLINGS AND CALLS FOR SWIFT PROSECUTION OF ALL CULPRITS INVOLVED

The Functional Executive Committee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has this morning dispatched a delegation to the town of Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

The visit comes in the wake of the mindless killing of Mohammed Ibrahim alias Kaaka by known assailants said to be bodyguards of the Municipal Chief Executive of Ejura, Mohammed Salisu Bamba and the subsequent murder of two other individuals, namely, Nasiru Yussif and Murtala Mohammed by a combined team of military and police personnel.

The NDC condemns in no uncertain terms the killing of “Kaaka”, a social media activist who has been using the power of social media to champion change and development in the Ejura community. “Kaaka”s activism predates the Akufo-Addo government, as he has always been known to be an influencer who highlights the ills of his society in dynamic ways to achieve the desired development for his community.

For him to have therefore been ambushed and killed by persons believed to be bodyguards of the Municipal Chief Executve for Ejura, who accused him of making the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government unpopular, is most unfortunate and reprehensible to say the least.

As if this incident was not dastardly enough, the youth of Ejura who took to the streets to protest the killing of their compatriot were then met with the brute force of uniformed military and police officers, who pointed their guns into the crowd, took aim and shot into the unarmed, harmless protesting civilians, killing two people instantly and injuring several others.

These incidents yet again highlight the institutionalisation of violence and state-sponsored thuggery that have taken center-stage under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo. The NDC has constantly bemoaned how state security has been abused and used as a veritable weapon of oppression against Ghanaians by the tyrannical Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government.

The NDC joins other well-meaning Ghanaians in moral society, the media and from all walks of life, in condemning the gruesome killing of the three individuals, and thus demand that justice be served without delay in order to appease the souls of the departed, their families and to serve as a lesson to all who think they can act criminally and brazenly get away with same.

Even as we console and support the families whose loved ones were murdered and injured few days ago, we wish to call for the following immediate actions from the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government:

  1. The immediate prosecution of persons who have been arrested and all the other assailants of “Kaaka” who are known associates of the MCE for Ejura, Mohammed Salisu Bamba.
  2. The immediate dismissal and prosecution of the Municipal Chief Executive for Ejura, Mohammed Salisu Bamba, who as Chairman of the Municipal Security Council, sanctioned the deployment of armed Military and Police personnel who shot into the crowd of peaceful protestors and murdered the two young men in cold blood.
  3. The immediate interdiction and prosecution of the District Police Commander and the Army Commander who sanctioned the said mindless deployment of the trigger-happy Military and Police Officers on the day.
  4. The interdiction, arrest and prosecution of the military and police officers who were deployed on the day, especially those caught on camera squatting and shooting directly into the crowd of protesters.

The NDC’s delegation comprises, Comrade Joshua Hamidu Akamba, National Organiser, Comrade Sammy Gyamfi, National Communication Officer, Dr. Hanna Louisa Bisiw, National Women Organizer, Comrade George Opare Addo, National Youth Organizer, Comrade Peter Boamah Otokunor, Deputy General Secretary, Comrade Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Director of Elections, Mr. Haruna Rashied, Director of IT, Comrade Kobby Barlon, Deputy National Organzier, Comrade Ruth Dela Sedoh, Deputy National Women Organizer, and Comrade Edem Agbana, Deputy National Youth Organiser.

Signed,

SAMMY GYAMFI

(National Communication Officer).

Is The Fight Against LGBTQI Going To Solve All Our Problems? – Gabby Questions Sam George’s Strong Advocacy

Published

on


Leading member of the NPP, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has questioned the essence of the strong advocacy against LGBTQI to the overall development of the Country.

The phenomenon of LGBTQI has gained massive attention once again after a Private Members Bill by some parliamentarians including MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George was laid before parliament.

The said bill seeks to criminalize the practice of homosexuality in its entirety as well as the advocacy of the phenomenon.

Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George has defended the bill extensively on social media, and has insisted that the bill will definitely be passed, even though there has been fierce opposition from sections of the Ghanaian public.

One of such critics is the cousin of President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, who appears definitely unimpressed with the aggressive effort against the LGBTQI community.

Why Don’t You Legalize Polygamy? – Sam George Clashes With UK MP Over LGBTQI

Published

on


MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has clashed with a UK MP over the LGBTQI brouhaha.

Sam George has been trending on Twitter following a spirited Defense he has mounted for the anti-LGBTQI bill which is currently before Parliament.

However, many Ghanaians including some celebrities have lambasted the MP, describing his strong advocacy as backward.

As the back and forth continued yesterday, a UK MP, Seb Dance also chastised Sam George for what he termed as colonial legacies.

Mr Dance wrote, “What an appalling way to treat your fellow human beings. I hope you come to your senses and reconsider rather than build on backward, colonial legacies that have damaged and limited the lives of so many. Where is the love?”

In his response, Sam George wrote, “Mr George in response said: “I would be glad when you and your fellow MEPs come to your senses and legalise polygamy. Can you show me the science or common sense behind your criminalisation of polygamy? You may think yourselves so wise but the joke is on you mate. The love is in the common sense”.

Sam George insists that the bill will be passed into law.
