AFTER THE exposure of a secretly recorded tape at a meeting involving NDC National Organizer Yaw Boateng Gyan and some goons of the party, where a fiendish plan to help the NDC retain power in 2012 was being discussed, a national executive of the ruling party has stated that the NDC has spies within them.
Solomon Nkansah, deputy propaganda secretary of the NDC, alleged that there were several moles in the ruling party who were working assiduously to cause the downfall of the party in the upcoming elections.
He accused the largest opposition political party in the country, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), of using money to bribe some known NDC members that worked at the party’s national office in Accra to work against the party.
Though he did not mention names, Nkansah alleged that the NDC had discovered the person who had been recording the party members’ conversations for the NPP for a fee, alleging that the NPP paid that person 200 million old cedis to record Mr. Boateng Gyan.
According to him, the party member that stooped so low to be bribed by the NPP now knew that the NDC was aware of his wicked intentions, adding that the NDC was now monitoring the actions of the infiltrator.
Nkansah stated that the person that did the recording to discredit the NDC had even stopped coming to the party office to work, though no official had approached him over his wicked actions.
He said the revelation of the secret tape involving Yaw Boateng Gyan and the hoodlums was a blessing in disguise for the NDC as the matter had opened the party’s eyes to people who claimed to be staunch party members but in actual fact were not.
“God loves the NDC so much that is why this matter has come to the public domain at this time,” Nkansah claimed whilst speaking with Akuoko Kwarteng on ‘Adwenkyere’, a current affairs programme, wired on Kessben FM in Kumasi.
Nkansah added that now that the party had come to the realization that it had moles within it, the party hierarchy would prevent people from recording conversations for the NPP.
Nkansah, who claimed to have listened to the 35-minute recording of Mr. Boateng Gyan carefully, insisted that the NDC national organizer did not say anything on the tape which was illegal.
He said the conversation was a normal one; therefore nobody should propose that Mr. Gyan be arrested by the police or sanctioned by the NDC, stressing there was nothing serious on the tape.
Nkansah insisted that the opposition members in the country, especially the NPP, were exaggerating the whole matter in order to score cheap political points, noting that their plans would not succeed.
