Deputy General Secretary of the opposition NDC, Peter Boamah Otokunor has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for being the orchestrators of the arrest of his driver on his alleged involved in the recent fire outbreaks in markets.
According to Mr. Otokunor, the arrest is to sway the focus away from the NDC’s protests happening across the country to challenge the 2020 election results.
Speaking to the media after his driver, Eric Adogla was released today, Mr. Otokunor said, “The NPP arrested my driver to divert attention from the critical issues of our resistance. They want the critical issue of our protest and the critical issue of our fight to protect democracy and the sovereignty of this country to be ignored. They did not find anything on him and no charges have been leveled against him. I think that this is one of the few things the NPP are doing to divert attention.”
He added, “I heard the General Secretary of the NPP issue a frivolous and childish statement that the NDC that our party is involved in fires. They know what exactly they are doing. They are using that to create some form of public disquiet and public dislike for the NDC and that has certainly failed. We would not go that low.”
