The former Member of Parliamentary for the Adentan Constituency Kojo Adu Asare has stated that the New Patriotic Party is preparing the grounds for violence ahead of next year’s general elections.
According to him, NPP’s “bizarre” claim that the Police and Military is complicit in the raid of the party’s headquarters Monday dawn is to make Ghanaians lose confidence in the nation’s security services.
Addressing a press conference on Friday, the acting national chairman of the party Freddie Blay said the State used “rogue elements within the National Security setup” to ransack its Asylum Down headquarters right after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary and presidential primaries.
“The details unfolding are frightening. After a careful review of the invasion, evidence, and subsequent events to date, the NPP is in no doubt that the attack on our offices was conducted by the State, specifically, using certain rogue elements within the National Security set up, in full collaboration with some identifiable individuals now bent on destroying the fortunes of the NPP,” Blay said on a day dubbed: #RedFriday.
But speaking on Citi FM’s Saturday Analysis programme, the ‘Big Issue’, Mr. Adu Asare described NPP’s position as strange and absurd adding that the ruling stands to gain nothing by raiding the NPP’s headquarters.
“You see NPP is preparing the grounds for violence…all they are saying is that we don’t trust in the military, we don’t trust in the police,” Adu Asare told host Richard Sky.
He added that happenings within the NPP over the last year seems to suggest that the largest opposition party is under some form of spiritual attack.
“I don’t know whether the NPP is under some spell or some curses have been invoked on the NPP.”
