Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has alleged that the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has contracted some Americans to train young men to serve as security detail for the party in the November polls.
The opposition lawmaker’s allegation follows the arrest of three South African ex-police officers for training party members of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), as security men to protect flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, and his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Speaking to Class News, Mr Agyapong questioned why government was bent on victimising the three South Africans, and by extension, Nana Akufo-Addo, when the governing party, according to him, had also engaged the services of some foreign experts to do the very thing they are speaking against.
“Everybody has a right to live, and nobody has the right to take anybody’s life. That is why we are here,” he stated.
“You see a lot of things going on and I am surprised the whole world has kept quiet. As I speak, [the] NDC has Americans training people at Asutsuare and nobody is saying anything about it.
“A Member of Parliament [Joseph Boakye Dankwa-Adu] has died and nobody knows what is happening, and if our flagbearer gets people to train his own security, then you call it espionage.
“They [government] rushed and they have embarrassed themselves again but, you know, all I will say is: ‘Let’s have patience’, let’s have peace’; they only want to come out and say that NPP is violent, ‘we told you Nana Akufo-Addo is violent’. Every move they have made, they failed because Nana is not like that; NPP is not a viole
