Majority Leader and Minister in charge of Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, has said the motive of National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was meant to create fear, panic, violence and anarchy hence the need for him to dealt with.
Reacting to the leaked tape of the NDC chairman, the legislator described the contents as wicked and evil.
In an interview with Kwabena Agyapong on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the legislator said he was extremely shocked at the comments passed by Ofosu Ampofo.
The MP is therefore calling on the law enforcement agency to deal ruthlessly with Mr Ampofo for making such criminal comments.
He has also advised Mr Ampofo to apologise to Ghanaians and seek for forgiveness because he has offended the state through the violent comments he made.
To him, if the NDC chair apologises for his misbehaviour, he should be forgiven.
”Samuel Ofosu Ampofo should come out and offer an apology to Ghanaians. I have listened to the audio and I must confess it was extremely bad. He was promoting violence. He was inciting his party members to engage in lawlessness. That was bad and so I will admonish Ofosu Ampofo to apologise,” he aded.
Meanwhile, the CID has officially invited Mr Ampofo to assist them in investigations.following leaked audio circulating on both traditional and social media platforms in the country.
In some of the recordings available to DGN Online, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo could be heard calling for “relentless war” against the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa.
He said in the tapes “the other aspect is the EC Chair. We must wage a relentless war on this EC Chair.”
As part of strategic communication plans for the NDC going into the 2020 elections, Ofosu-Ampofo also gave his blessings for the communicators to verbally attack the Peace Council chairman Professor Emmanuel Asante.
“For the first time, I will endorse insulting the National Peace Council Chair,” he said to cheers from the NDC Communicators.
“…You have Chief Azorka in my meeting saying, Chief thank you, I said why, he said if you had not taken this decision I don’t know how my men would have gone back to Tamale. The issue is that they had brought down the Kandahar Boys and the Kandahar boys know our boys from Tamale. You know it was a targeted attack and so once they spot you they invite them, and then around that time my people were so defenseless and they had packed themselves in pickups so cordon off and hounding them was very very easy and they had not anticipated all these things coming so it hasn’t been easy but for me how we take the battle from here is most critical.
