Some heavily built men numbering about 20 and believed to be associated with ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPPs) Invincible Forces, have reportedly besieged the offices of the Eastern Regional National Health Insurance Scheme, and forcibly locked the office of the Regional Manager.
According to them, they cannot work with the Regional Manager who they claim is an outsider and not a member of the party.
The Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, confirming the story said: “They came in, entered the office of the new scheme manager for the region, who has been appointed, and took the keys to the office and locked up the offices.”
Meanwhile, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo has hinted that, Ghana will not be lawless under his watch.
He gave the assurance when he paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II as part of his three-day, thank your tour.
He specifically made reference to the recent attack on his nominee as the security coordinator for the Regional Security Council, Daniel Adjei by Delta Force, a vigilante group associated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He described the incident as unfortunate and noted, efforts are underway to ensure that the offenders are punished.
“It will not be under my watch that people will take the law into their own hands, neither will it be under my watch that the laws of our land will not be enforced. That will never happen. The law will work without fear or favour.’’
