Akamba Breaks Silence...

The Deputy National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress Joshua Hamidu Akamba says he is ready to endure any ‘harassment’ from the police as he sacrifice to improve the lots of the Tempane SHS students who are enduring hardship as a result of the Free SHS policy.

” If they’ll{Police] sacrifice me for the children to be liberated, I’m fine. I’ll seek to achieve that and overlook the troubles I’m going through now; they’re not important to me. What is very crucial for me is to help ease the predicaments of the school children because I’ve been having nightmare since I encountered the troubles of these young ones.

He believes his woes since that viral video that captured him allegedly inciting the SHS students up-north against government’s free SHS policy is just mere tactics by the ruling government to tame him.

“I have heard NPP members saying I should be tamed, but what they should remember is that they won’t be in power forever. For me, even if we’re in power or not I don’t encourage Police harassment,” he said.

The youth wing of the party has slammed the NDC official and described his action as reckless and irresponsible.

Mr Akamba who is seeking to take over the national organizer position on a campaign tour of the Upper East region visited a secondary school in the Tempane constituency where he admonished students to reject President Akufo-Addo in 2020 because he is the cause of the changes they are faced with.

Mr Joshua Akamba made the children show their bedbugs bite scars to the cameras, promising them their headache will be over by 2020. Asking them if they will vote for Akufo-Addo again after the bedbug bites, they all screamed “Nooooo!”

A statement, which was signed by Nana Boakye, the Youth Organizer, called for the head of Mr Akamba.

‘’This irresponsible, repulsive, reckless and unpatriotic act clearly flies in the face of the Ghana Education Service regulations that forbid active partisan politics on the campuses of Pre-Tertiary Education Schools.

Akamba is expected to report himself to the Garu-Tempane Police today, October, 08, 2018 to assist in Police investigations over the matter.

Meanwhile, the Upper East Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES), has directed the headmaster of the Tempane Senior High School, to hand over the running of the school to the directorate with immediate effect.

The directive follows a visit by the Deputy National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the school last week.
