Asiedu Nketia's comments very 'reckless' - Nana Boakye

Nana Boakye, Deputy Executive Director of the National Service Secretariat (NSS), has described as "reckless" comments by the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia over the murder of the late Capt. Maxwell Mahama.

Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Nana Boakye believed the NDC General Secretary's remarks offend the sensibilities of the deceased's family and Ghanaians.

According to him, the murder of the Military Officer is a sad issue that should not be toyed with by the NDC General Secretary.

Nana Boakye wondered why Mr. Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito, would play politics with the issue by asking the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to resign.

He further condemned mob justice in the country and called on all Ghanaians to be each other's keeper, and ensure that any person suspected of a wrongdoing is sent to the security institutions for the country's laws to take full course.

Also addressing the issue on 'Kokrokoo', seasoned journalist Kwesi Pratt Jnr. called on the government of Ghana to prepare packages to cater for people who lose their lives in the course of service to the country, particularly security personnel who die in the line of the duty.
