Communications Director of the NPP, Nana Akomea believes gradually the ruling National Democratic Congress [NDC] is taking Ghana back to the “military regime" headed by ex-President Jerry Rawlings where citizens' freedom were unceremoniously curtailed after addressing government issues.
According to him, the high-handed approach by the Bureau of National Investigations [BNI] in effecting "arrests" is “unfortunate” and puts the electorates in a state of ‘panic’.
“Ghanaians must add their voices on what is going on now. What is going on is very serious. This NDC government is sending us back to the military regime where government in power can do whatever they like,” he said.
His comment comes after the Managing Director and security officers of a quarry firm called Granite and Marble located on the Spintex Road in Accra was arrested by the BNI for allegedly taking pictures of some vehicles said to belong to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), being branded with NDC colours.
Dr. Ani was alleged to have leaked pictures of the said vehicles on social media which went viral - The vehicles, 50 Mahindra 4x4 vehicles were being rebranded at a mechanic shop near the MD's office on the Spintex road.
Some Ghanaians have already began accusing the ruling government of abusing its incumbency and using state resources to procure the vehicles for campaign purposes ahead of the November 7 polls.
Speaking on the issue on NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie', Nana Akomea quizzed that – “If indeed the NDC used their own money to purchase those cars and branding them to advertise President Mahama, what is wrong with that if someone is helping them to advertise the president with those pictures? Will those cars remain in their rooms?”
“If truly the NDC used their own money for the vehicles, why must they arrest the man? Why did they relocate the cars at dawn after the pictures went viral? He asked.
