Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has officially reacted to the recent arrest of Citi FM’s Caleb Kudah and the manner in which his colleague, Zoe Abu-Baidoo was treated by National security Operatives.
In a press release signed by the General Secretary of the party, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the NDC condemns what they described as Akufo-Addo’s degradation of the Ghanaian democracy.
According to the statement, they condemn in the strongest possible terms the continuous abuse of the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of the Ghanaian people.
According to the statement, by “the brutish assault of Mr. Caleb Kudah of Citi FM and the harassment of his colleague, Ms. Zoe Abu-Baidoo, the Akufo-Addo government has now demonstrated clearly that it does not believe in the rule of law nor common human decency, as the continued presence of Deputy Superintendent of Police, Samuel Kojo Azugu in the National Security apparatus and the brutish conduct of Lt. Colonel Agyemang fly totally in the face of the solemn recommendations of the Emil Short Commission of Inquiry.”
According to the NDC, the genesis of these state -sponsored trends can bee traced back to the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election in January 2019, the virtual militarization of the voters registration process in the run-up to the 2020 election, and the massive violence that characterized the election to the extent that about 8 innocent Ghanaian lives were lost.
