CID snub: NDC spreading impunity, lawlessness - Obiri Boahene

Deputy General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has accused the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) of endorsing lawlessness and indiscipline.

According to him, the decision taken by the party to defy an invitation from the police CID to its National Chairman, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo is a dangerous act.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo was invited by the CID to assist in investigations into kidnapping and fire outbreaks in the country after his name was allegedly mentioned as the mastermind of the crimes.

Addressing the press yesterday, Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu a member of the Council of Elders of the NDC accused the NPP of using the country’s police service to intimidate the party’s National Chairman.

He stressed the position of the party that it will not allow Mr. Ofosu Ampofo to honour the invitation because he “is not under any compulsion or obligation to assist the police in their investigations.”

Reacting to this development Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen on Thursday, 9 May 2019 that the NDC’s posture smacks of indiscipline.

He said: “You’re calling for total refusal to honour an invitation [from the police] and by extension even the EOCO and BNI, that is dangerous, that argument is disingenuous. The police have extended an invitation to you, it’s a matter of honouring that invitation, you go there and go through the procedure, that’s all. I’m not holding brief for the police but for goodness sake they [NDC] should not rope in the New Patriotic Party, they should not rope in the president, they are preaching indiscipline and lawlessness.”
