Number12: Biased and political CID cannot do a good job – Asiedu Nketia
General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Mr Asiedu Nketia has waded into the number 12 investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas stating that, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service (CID) cannot be trusted to thoroughly investigate the contents contained in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s Number 12 undercover documentary done on the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Mr Nketia complained that, the current head of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), DCOP Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah, was appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to do a hatchet job for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said since the names of the president and his vice, as well as some government officials were mentioned in the expose, the CID cannot investigate the matter thoroughly and bring the desired results Ghanaians expert.
“The president’s name was mentioned in the video, the name of the vice was also mentioned. Some other government officials were also mentioned, and, so, how can the CID do a good job”, he told on AccraFM on Thursday, 7 June.
“The CID boss herself said she was put there to do the job for the NPP, and, so, to the extent that she continues to remain there, no proper investigations will be conducted into this matter,” he added.
The Number 12 documentary was premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre on Wednesday, 6 June.
GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, in Anas’ #Number 12 tried to involve the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong into his alleged dubious deal.
In the video, Mr Nyantakyi tells a supposed investor (Tiger Eye reporter): “There is a man called Kennedy Agyapong. He is an MP. He is one of the biggest financiers of the NPP. He is very loud. He owns OMAN FM and NET2 TV. He is criticising the government, his own government, yes. He wants to control everything.”
Kwesi Nyantaky continued that: “… Because of the [money] he [Kennedy Agyapong] put into the campaign, nobody can call him to order. They will be begging him when he is insulting them. So, Karbo was saying that after the President and the Vice-President, we should involve him.”
