In the heat of the by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon on 31st January, 2019, the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said that Mr. Delali Kwasi Brempong, was being held hostage in his own house by armed men.

He cited that particular reason as one of the reasons why the NDC was withdrawing from the race. However, addressing the Short Commission yesterday, the man at the centre of the drama, Mr. Delali Kwasi Brimpong, said that he was not in his house when the alleged incident took place. In effect, either Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is right, and Delali Brempong was in his that both men cannot be right. Both version of the story cannot be true. One of them is lying at a monumental level, and it is not funny.

Indeed the events of 31st January has so worried the nation, that the president found it necessary to establish a whole Commission of Inquiry to go into the matter.

Yesterday, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate in the January 31 by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon, disputed claims that his house was used as a harbor to hoard firearms and thugs.

He also said that he had left his house in the morning and so was not present throughout the alleged incident of violence.

Strikingly, it was the very fact that Delali Brempong was being held hostage in his house by armed men, that served as a reason for the NDC led by Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo to withdraw from the Ayawaso race.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo said the party’s candidate, Delali Brempong, was being “held hostage” in the house. “In the circumstances, I have conferred with the parliamentary candidate and the leadership of the NDC. We have no option than to withdraw from the ongoing exercise,” the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, said to the press. So who is lying? Delali Brempong, or Samuel Ofosu Ampofo?
