Ghana government’s acceptance of Guantanamo Bay ex-detainees has sparked a lot of controversies and generated diverse views and confrontations from both security and political experts.
In recent developments, the founder of the Progressive People's Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has expressed his disappointment over Hon Nii Amasah Namoale’s comments on ATV in defending government’s decision in accepting these detainees into the country and citing the African Union and Zimbabwean President Robert Gabriel Mugabe as an example of terrorists who came to Ghana for asylum in the early 70s.
Dr Nduom at a press conference said these African leaders Namoale referred to as terrorists are people who run to different African countries including Ghana for political asylum and not because they were terrorists.
He further explained that these are leaders who fought for the liberation of Africa and cannot be compared to any person in Ghana in the same circumstance.
He called on the privileges committee to invite the Namoale for interrogation on reasons why he describes the Chairperson of the African Union as a terrorist and if possible demand that he apologize to Ghanaians and the Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.
He also asked president Mahama to advice the Member of Parliament who doubles as a communication team member for the NDC party to be mindful of how he communicates on radio and television.
