The National Youth Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), George Opare Addo says under no circumstances will Major (Rtd) Kojo Boakye-Djan call for war in the country after his experience some years ago as a military capo.

According to him, Boakye-Djan’s comment was to alert a possible violent if the Electoral Commission [EC] proceeded to compile a new voters’ register in this epoch of Coronavirus.

“What he [Boakye-Djan] said was to forewarn government. He will never call for war. And besides this has been said several by others. Many have registered their disapproval of this new voters’ register,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

NPP & EC Leading Ghana Into Civil War

Major Osahene Boakye Gyan (rtd) is warning of impending doom should the Electoral Commission connive with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to rig the upcoming December polls.

The former military officer accused the EC of gradually leading the country into a civil war with its bull-headedness, particularly regarding the decision to compile a new voters register.

If They Want Civil War, They Will Get It!

The fomer military capo strongly held that the country can go to the polls this year without resort to putting together a new register as was done in 2016.

Sounding a note of caution, he pointed out that most electoral disputes in Africa have resulted in civil wars and Ghana is not immune to it, and warned that "should the EC continue to toe the line of their paymasters, it will certainly spell doom for this country."

CID Invite

Four personnel of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, on Tuesday, 19th May, 2020, arrested and questioned Major Kwadwo Boakye-Djan (Rtd) for allegedly saying on public radio that there would be a civil war in Ghana should the Electoral Commission go ahead with its plan to compile a new voters' register.

Mr. Boakye-Djan was made to write his statement at the police station in the Bono Region where his lawyers joined him at the police station.

He was later granted bail and asked to make himself available at the station at least once in a week.
