The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says he is praying the CID boss, COP Tiwaa Addo- Daquah would not make a U-turn to tell Ghanaians the arrest of National Chairman for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was to give hope to Ghanaians just like she did in the case of the kidnapping of the three kidnapped Takoradi girls.
The legislator in a post on his official Facebook page said ‘’ Just read the CID statement on NDC Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo’s arrest.
Like many Ghanaians, I am hoping and praying that the “credible and actionable intelligence” is not of the kind that led to the infamous “Azugulicious” bloodshed in Ayawaso West Wuogon.’’
He continued: ‘’Like many Ghanaians, I am hoping and praying that the “credible and actionable intelligence” is not of the kind that will cause CID Director-General Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to soon make a U-turn and announce to the nation that it was intended to give HOPE to the families of kidnapped victims.’’
The MP further said: ‘’In any case, shouldn’t there be a positive correlation between “credible and actionable intelligence” and finding the kidnapped girls who remain helplessly missing for the longest period?
In his view, ‘‘the security of a nation is too serious a matter and should never be reduced to comical partisanship.’’
He added: ‘’I still believe there can be a far better and transformational use of POWER, which in all reality belongs to the PEOPLE and not hawkish manipulative politicians.’’
In another post the MP says the arrest of the party’s chairman has thought the NDC how it should have dealt with the infamous ‘All Die Be Die’ mantra and other comments made by the then opposition NPP.
‘’The silver lining in this Ofosu-Ampofo affair is that the NPP is teaching the NDC how we should have handled the Akufo-Addo “All die be die” tape, the Anthony Karbo “Bad Boys from Libya, Benin and Liberia” tape, the Atta Akyea “Dead Bodies” tape, the Sammi Awuku “Target Judges for Elimination” tape, et cetera; and what has now been established as the new standard moving forward.
Perhaps this new standard cannot be bad for our national politics, if we reflect deeply.’’
