In this political era of secret tapes popping up from every angle, many are those who have proclaimed that the content in Yaw Boateng Gyan's tape stands tall as it reveals a vicious plot by the NDC’s National Organizer to destabilize the country’s peace ahead of this year’s election.

But Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., posits that after listening to the latest secret tape streaming on various media outlets which captures the voice of the New Patriotic Party (NPP's) National Youth Organiser, Anthony Abaayifa Karbo, the conclusion he arrived at was that its content poses a “far more serious” threat than the contents on the Yaw Boateng Gyan tape.

“I have listened to the tape, and some of the things on the tape are exceedingly troubling…these are more serious matters, in fact far more serious than some of the statements attributed to Yaw Boateng Gyan and I would be surprised if we just let it go,” Mr. Pratt stated.

The NPP National Youth Organiser has been accused by a youth group under the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) called Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) of planning to use mercenaries “from some neighbouring West African countries and beyond to ‘instigate’ violence during the elections”.

Though the NPP activist says the allegations are "a complete fabrication and concoction", Kwesi Pratt is of the opinion that the nation should simply apply science to authenticate who was behind the recording.

In a chat with Shamima Muslim on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana Show, the seasoned journalist posited that if the country's security services lacked equipment to analyze the tape and the need arose for the said tape to be sent outside the country for authentication, so be it.

He congratulated the leadership of the NPP for taking the bold and matured step to do an internal investigation on Karbo’s alleged tape but advised them to also allow the state agencies and institutions to play their role in the matter.

“When the Yaw Boateng Gyan tape came out, opponents of the National Democratic Congress raised hell and insisted that he should be arrested, he should be interrogated and so on...subsequently, he was invited by the security services, he was interrogated and the tape was examined. The security services came to the conclusion that there was nothing untoward about the thing that he said and that they didn’t constitute a threat and so on. In the same vein, I would expect that Anthony Karbo would be investigated properly”, he noted.
