The Communications Director of the Asokwa New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Edmund Kyei has described Koku Anyidoho as someone who is ‘unfit’ to talk about issues of political vigilantism.
According to Mr Kyei, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy Scribe was part of both the Mills and Mahama governments that superintended over lawless acts in 2009 and late 2016 when the NDC was in power.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper, the NPP man wondered why Koku Anyidoho and the NDC just after ten months in opposition are behaving as a frustrated bunch of people.
He has advised the NDC to stay calm and watch how the state institutions clothed to maintain law and order do justice to their respective mandates.
Mr Kyei recalled how the NDC in 2009 just after winning the elections of December 2008 chased out many NPP officials who occupied various offices in the President Kufuor administration.
He also noted the unruly attitude of some of the NDC support groups such as the Azorka boys who beat up people in the Chereponi bye-election.
Mr Kyei furthermore narrated how these same Azorka boys threatened the late President, Professor Evans Atta Mills not to set foot at the Northern Region for not kowtowing to the demand in appointing a District Chief Executive (DCE) of their choice.
Summing it up, the NPP aspiring Asokwa Constituency Vice-Chairman recounted how these NDC youth groups in an intolerable manner subjected their own General Secretary, Asiedu Nketiah to several threats of life when the latter visited the North to conduct a vetting exercise for the party’s then parliamentary hopefuls.
Expressing confidence, Mr Kyei noted the Nana Addo government will effectively deal with the current trend of lawlessness.
According to him, unlike the NDC regimes the President has given his word to the Security agencies to deal with crime with the full force they can muster.
He also recounted how the President has in countless occasions given his backing to the law courts in dealing with criminals as they deem fit.
All these, the NPP man stressed are ways the Nana Addo Government was dealing with the unfortunate trend of lawlessness.
