The Member of Parliament for Builsa South Dr. Clement Apaak has taken a swipe at Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah for making claims that recent events in the country are signs of an attempt to create instability.
The Minister referenced June 28, 2022, Arise Ghana demonstration and the case of the #FixTheCountry case who demanded to organize a protest with arms some weeks ago.
Speaking on Ghana Evening Ghana on Metro TV, the Minister asserted that the two issues gave a clear indication that there is an attempt to create instability in Ghana
“We don’t need to mince words about it. There is a trajectory – first, there was a group that wanted to demonstrate with weapons.
“Then, there was this group that said they wanted to demonstrate at night or to demonstrate from the evening throughout the night till the next morning. The Police raised obvious security questions that it will be difficult,” he said.
This [Arise Ghana demo] is even daytime, broad daylight at Obra Spot here in Accra – we have people attacking Police officers in this manner. Can you imagine what would have happened at night if indeed some of these things were allowed to continue throughout the night?” he asked.
But reacting, Dr. Apaak slammed the Minister, questioning whether the several demonstrations he (Minister) and OccupyyGhana organised were not an agenda to create instability.
He is also asking the Minister to answer why the first suspect who allegedly threw the first stone was apprehended and handed over to the Police by Eric Adjei, was let go.
The lawmaker said the Minister is behaving like a hypocrite and trying to mock the several Ghanaians who participated in the demonstration due to the harsh economic hardship caused by the ”incompetent” Nana Addo-led administration.
”When you and your OccupyGhana were protesting was it your agenda to create instability in the country? Tell us why the guy who threw the 1st stone was let go by the police when he was apprehended and handed over to them by Prince Derrick Adjei etc?”
