The Movement of Truth and Accountability (MTA), a pro-opposition group with strong leanings with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is urging the National Security Directorate to cause the arrest of two assigns of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahen and Robert Owusu, deputy communications officer and Adansi South constituency executive respectively.
According to the group, these two NDC assigns have uttered words that are not only threatening but could be enough fodder for violence if they are not stopped on time.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper after addressing a press conference and official launch of the movement in Kumasi, convener for the group, Joseph Bediako said the two had dared to stop people from casting their ballots on election day.
This threat, Mr Bediako noted, if not nipped in bud by the security agencies could be e recipe for chaos and confusion on election day since no political party would allow for its members to be cowed into submission.
Playing a video recording of a political program that was recently aired on TV Gold, a television channel belonging to an NDC member, one of the accused, Kwaku Boahen was heard threatening to physically stop known NPP people from casting their ballots.
Robert Owusu, the Adansi South NDC executive also threatened to behead any NPP man who tried challenging him at the polling station on election day.
Mr Boahen, on the tape was heard saying, ‘this 2016 elections some will queue, some will vote half, some will queue but cannot vote and if care is not taken some cannot even come out of their houses to vote’.
”You beat us when we were in opposition and now we are in power and you want to beat us, this will never happen”, the Deputy Communications Officer threatened the NPP.
Drawing conclusions from the president’s muteness about the behavior of the two party assigns, Mr Bediako who heads the over 2,500 membership group inferred the NDC was planning mayhem on election day.
He stressed the verbal diarrhea from these two NDC chaps go a long way to expose the plans of the president to devise diabolic strategies to change the verdict of Ghanaians at the upcoming polls in December.
The Convener disclosed attempts by the ruling party to use monetary influence to subvert the will of the people by buying out those they see as threats to them hatching a successful rigging plan.
He, therefore, called on diplomats who were in charge of the various Embassies in Ghana as well as civil and religious leaders to do their part to ensure the upcoming polls were held in an extremely transparent and peaceful manner.
