The President was making a “fool” of the King of Asante, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II when he assured the King that government will not countenance lawlessness and indiscipline acts involving members of Delta Force, a private security wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who recently assaulted the Ashanti Regional security coordinator, George Agyei.
Former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Obuasi and the defeated National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Akwasi Agyemang Boadi observed that the assurance from the President to the King was just a lip-service because President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo does not intent to walk-his-talk.
“Do you know that President Akufo Addo said during the state of the nation address never will lawlessness happen under his presidency when NPP thugs were attacking state institutions immediately they took power from us”
“Who is the President fooling? Me or the King? He is just fooling wise Ghanaians who are supposed to get protection under his government. I do not believe what the King believed the assurance from the President a bit “the former MCE popularly called Zuba said on Kumasi-based Ultimate Fm.
The President over the weekend during his visit to Kumasi assured Otumfuo Osei Tutu II of his resolve to deal with lawlessness and condemned the assault of the regional security coordinator while assuring the people that security agencies have been tasked to arrest and prosecute persons even within NPP who will go contrary to the law.
The NDC Communicator stated that what is happening currently under the presidency of President Akufo-Addo even did not happen in the history of the country’s military regime.
“Have you ever heard under military regime of this country where thugs went to attack security officer at seat of government before or thugs assaulting security coordinator like that of Delta Force and Mr. George Agyei. And nothing has been done about it. Did it happen?”
Akwasi Agyemang Boadi therefore said he and other NDC will resort to God or deities to protect themselves as they do not trust state security agencies any longer.
