Ashanti Regional Minister, John Alexander Ackon has refuted claims that President John Dramani Mahama’s convoy was pelted with stones when he began his ‘Accounting To The People Tour’ in the Ashanti Region.

The ruling National Democratic Congress has accused the largest opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) of being behind the attack on President John Mahama’s convoy in the Ashanti Region.

Section of the President’s convoy was attacked Tuesday night at Ejisu after the President had commissioned the Centre for Renewable Energy and Entrepreneurship village for the Kumasi Polytechnic as part of his ‘Accounting to People Tour’.

A long queue of by-standers lined up on the streets of Ejisu and nearby communities hooting at the president and hurling stones at his convoy. Their motive for hooting at the president is not immediately known.

The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC, Raymond Tandoh has said the party will demand that the police launch full-scale investigations into the attack to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.

“This attack is quiet unfortunate and this must stop, the NPP is behind this attack. The Youth Organizer has spoken that he was part of the group that attacked the convoy,” Tandoh alleged.

But Alexander Ackon on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show emphatically averred that claim of attack on President Mahama’s convoy cannot be true as nobody threw any stone at the President’s convoy.

He however added that one of the vehicles following President John Dramani Mahama’s convoy got hit by a stone but they ignored the incident, considering it to be part of life situation.

“Nobody threw any stone at President Mahama’s convoy; the President’s convoy was never attacked except that one of the vehicles following the convoy got hit by a stone, but such is part of life and so we didn’t pay much attention to the incident,” the Ashanti Regional Minister refuted the claim.
