A Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), lawyer Obiri Boahen has taken the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the cleaners over claims that government was scheming to have Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo arrested.
He told Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that it makes no logical sense for the NDC to make such frivolous claims.
Lawyer Boahen said the NPP’s chairman, Freddie Blay was also facing charges in court, a case filed by CHRAJ over the 275 buses he bought for the various constituencies.
He has therefore quizzed if it would be proper for the NPP to also accused the NDC of using CHRAJ to have Mr. Blay frustrated.
The opposition NDC says it has gathered information government has secured a court warrant to arrest its National Chairman, Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.
A statement signed the party’s Director of Communications, Kakra Essamuah said, “The NDC takes a very serious view of the government’s intention, if our information is correct, and wish to bring to the attention of the country that, as the Chairman of the largest opposition party in Ghana, our national Chairman is entitled to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity. ”
It added: “Whilst still respecting the already-stated stance of the Council of Elders regarding police invitations, we wish to state that the national Chairman is a law-abiding citizen who will never flout an order properly obtained from a court with authority to do so.”
But lawyer Boahen says the statement and the claims contained in it makes no sense hence the NDC should give them a break.
