The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has registered his displeasure at the defense put out by former President Mahama to insulate his party's National Chairman from crimes that the police believe he could have contributed to.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako stated that, the former president had no point attacking the police during his recent tour.
The former President, during his coastal tour said the NPP was setting a very bad precedent because, the investigations that warranted Mr. Ampofo’s questioning were borne out of government’s frustration over its failure to properly manage the economy.
Chairman for the National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has in the past months been invited to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to assist with police inquiry.
Mr. Ampofo was first invited by the CID for allegedly condoning political violence and urging threats against the lives of some personalities including the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission in a leaked audio.
The latest has to do with his alleged involvement in recent kidnappings and fire incidents in the country.
According to the CID, Mr. Ampofo has been identified as being part of a grand scheme to cause fear and panic in the country.
Rather than defending Mr. Ampofo’s action, Mr. Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, noted that if he (Mr. Mahama), were to be in the shoes of parents whose children were recently kidnapped or been a victim of traders who lost their valuables through arson, he would have “made room for no loose talks.”
“Ofosu Ampofo has been caught on tape plotting evil on this nation and we have Mahama who is only interested in political power so he sees nothing wrong with the invitation from the police to his Chairman to assist them in investigation. If his daughter had been kidnapped, would he have spoken this way?
"Ofosu Ampofo should have kidnapped Farida Mahama to teach Mahama some pain and discomfort. Innocent and poor parents are wailing day and night following the plot Ofosu Ampofo and his NDC guys hatched to make Nana Akufo-Addo’s government unpopular. Instead of Mahama demanding the whereabouts of the innocent girls from his party Chairman, he is shamelessly defending him- Christ have mercy on him!”
Chairman Wontumi went on to state that even the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump is going to prison for doing something negative against the state.
“Better people like Bill Cosby and Mike Tyson were all made to face the law when they erred so why should Ofosu Ampofo be a free man after his crime? This is the time Mahama ought to reason up like a matured person. He should come out and name one country that would be happy to have kidnappers sabotaging the ruling government.”
Lastly, Chairman Wontumi revealed that former President Mahama took exceptional delight in chartering a flight to Kumasi just to order his men to jail him when he refused to honour an invitation which was extended to him by the police and wonders why he doesn’t want the same rule to be applied to Ofosu-Ampofo.
“When Mahama wanted me jailed, he chartered an empty flight to Kumasi and ordered his people to ensure I am kept in cells. Is that demon Ofosu Ampofo better than me? I want his spokesperson Mahama to give me an answer”, he ordered.
