General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has asked officials of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop explaining the audio in which their party’s chairman was heard allegedly inciting violence.
According to Mr Boadu, it does not make sense to hear officials of the party explain away audio they claim to be doctored.
“Sometimes I don’t understand my colleagues in the opposition. You claim a tape has been doctored. At a point, you have some communicators justifying the same tape and then also claim it has been doctored. How do you explain a tape you claim has been doctored,” he queried.
Mr Ofosu Ampofo is under pressure from members of the public who are asking his church, the Church of Pentecost, where he is an Elder to sanction him.
Former President John Mahama who has said the tape “should be dismissed with the contempt that it deserves”, saying only a lazy and idle government would have time on their hands to bug an opponent’s office.
Mr Boadu, however, believes the comment by the NDC Chair has revealed the plans of the NDC to create insecurity ahead of the 2020 elections.
He wondered why the NDC Chairman has been tight-lipped since the audio leaked.
“Why is he not speaking? We all know the kind of person he is. So now he can write letters but can’t speak,” he asked.
