The National Democratic Congress(NDC) claims it has information that the government, using the security agencies, has obtained a court warrant in the past few days for the arrest of its national Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.

According to the party, it has further learnt that the security agencies intend to do this apparently in conjunction with elements of NPP vigilante forces and that they intend to arrest the Chairman in a manner aimed at lowering him in the esteem of Ghanaians.

The NDC says it takes a very serious view of the government’s intention, if the information is correct, and wish to bring to the attention of the country that, as the Chairman of the largest opposition party in Ghana, the national Chairman is entitled to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity.

The party in a statement signed by its Director of Communications, Kakra Essamuah stated “Whilst still respecting the already-stated stance of the Council of Elders regarding police invitations, we wish to state that the national Chairman is a law-abiding citizen who will never flout an order properly obtained from a court with authority to do so.”

It also notified “the teeming supporters of the National Democratic Congress to expect the imminent arrest of the National Chairman for the purpose of advancing the narrow political interests of President Akufo-Addo to silence all legitimate political opposition.”

The statement concluded by saying “at all times, the national Chairman of our party can count on the solidarity of the entire membership of the party and we stand solidly behind Hon. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.”
