Former Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has sarcastically admitted the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is teaching his party how to govern the country.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region observed that certain decisions the National Democratic Congress (NDC) should have taken in respect of comments made by leading opposition members while in power were ignored bit it is now being played back to them.
In a post on his Facebook page sighted by MyNewsGh.com, he said “the silver lining in this Ofosu-Ampofo affair is that the NPP is teaching the NDC how we should have handled the Akufo-Addo “All die be die” tape, the Anthony Karbo “Bad Boys from Libya, Benin and Liberia” tape, the Atta Akyea “Dead Bodies” tape, the Sammi Awuku “Target Judges for Elimination” tape, et cetera; and what has now been established as the new standard moving forward. Perhaps this new standard cannot be bad for our national politics if we reflect deeply”
His comments follow last Tuesday’s arrest of the National Chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) over arson and kidnappings.
The NDC executive is currently being prosecuted by government over comments he is purported to have made in a leaked tape after January 31, 2019, Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election at a meeting with party communicators at the headquarters in Adabraka.
Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo has described contents of the tape as doctored and will not admit or deny whether that is his voice or otherwise.
