The Communication team of the opposition National Democratic Congress appears to be in ‘crisis’ with their handling of party National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo’s 'doctored' leaked tape which has gone viral.
Whereas the party’s Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi denies the leaked tape and describe it as 'fake' and 'doctored'– his deputy Communication Officer, Kwaku Boahen has confirmed that indeed the voice and very utterances heard on the tape is that of Mr Ofosu-Ampofo.
Kwaku Boahen in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie’ was very reluctant and said that “We the party [NDC communication] members are very happy of what our Chairman said and we will do exactly that. What he said is dear to our hearts that is why we clapped for him during the meeting which was recorded and leaked.”
National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, has called for a 'relentless war' against Jean Mensa, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC).
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo, in a purported leaked audio recording circulating could be heard telling some party members of the NDC that “ . . the EC Chair, we must wage a relentless war against this EC Chair.”
The recording is believed to have been done at a meeting after the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by-election held on January 31, 2019.
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo could be heard also complaining about the treatment of the NDC’s parliamentary candidate for the by-election, Delali Kwasi Brempong, whose La Bawaleshie residence on the day of voting became the centre for gun battle between National Security operatives and supporters of the NDC.
Backing his Chairman, Kweku Boahen also alleged that "so don’t you know the EC boss is a member of the NPP, she wears their T-shirt at secret meetings. She does their [NPP] works for them as EC boss. We won’t sit and look at her. We have issues with her before her appointment as EC boss. She is not even fit for the position.”
“Just as our Chairman said, we will unleash war against her. She is a member of the NPP. Nobody can shut us up,” he angrily said.
