The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says evidence available to it affirms that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is training thugs at Asutuare in the Eastern Region to cause mayhem during the 2020 election.
According to the party, former President Mahama’s comment on the training of thugs was nothing but the truth.
“It is obvious from the overwhelming evidence available to us on this matter that President Akufo-Addo himself is the chief mastermind and promoter of these illegal acts which threaten the very core of our democracy,” it said.
In statement signed by the National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC said “we have in our possession pictures and other pieces of indisputable evidence about on-going training of more of these thugs at Asutuare towards election 2020 as was revealed by President Mahama.”
According to the party, its position is fortified by the sad events of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election and the gut-wrenching details that were uncovered during the Emile Short Commission hearing “which speaks to a more pervasive enterprise of the Akufo-Addo government in breeding state-sponsored monsters under the guise of National Security Council.”
