The NPP communication team condemns without reservation the actions of Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan, National Organiser of the NDC and his efforts at using the state machinery to recruit his party members to carry out criminal acts against Ghanaians who want to exercise a universal right, the right to vote peacefully at elections. We are greatly surprised that till now he has not been suspended and investigated by his party neither has he been called for questioning by security agencies after his admission of his actions.
For us in the NPP UK communication team, Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan alone cannot carry out these wicked acts without the support of people higher up and for us there can be only one department who will sanction these kind of diabolical schemes and that is the Presidency. President John Mahama is chair of the National Security Council and was previously chair of the Police Council as Vice President. How much does he know about these criminal activities and how far was he prepared to go to fund this evil program?
Civil Society and religious groups and opposition parties groups have already expressed concern about the formation of these special forces and the fact that Yaw Boateng Gyan and the NDC are recruiting their members to wear uniforms to cause chaos shows that that are not interested in peace or protecting lives and property in Ghana.
We call on the United Nations Secretary General Mr Ban Ki Moon ,the Chairman of the African Union, President Yayi Boni, Ecowas chairman Mr Alhassane Ouatarra, the diplomatic community in Ghana and all Ghanaians living abroad to take note of the violent activities being orchestrated by President John Mahama and his party members to cause mayhem in this years elections in Ghana.
President Mahama and NDC must stop the culture of violence and impunity. Ghana is not their personal property.
