After being in the custody of the Criminal Investigations Department for some hours for allegedly threatening a coup by a comment he made on radio about Ghana’s president, the Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Cngress(NDC), Koku Anyidoho, says he still remains unrepentant.
Koku Anyidoho made the comment on Citi FM’s news analysis programme, ‘The Big Issue’ on Saturday when the host asked whether he has repented after his experience during his detention.
“I remain an unrepentant social democrat, I remain an unrepentant member of the NDC and I remain an unrepentant supporter of the progressives thinking and the progressive forces. Issues to do with what I was reported to have said that the police dutifully started investigating is within the law, let the law take its course,” he said.
Feeling reluctant to talk more about his detention which he described as an “experience”, Anyidoho said Ghanaians should allow the laws and security agencies to work without hindrances.
He also indicated that the security agencies did not manhandle him as has being widely speculated by the public and urged the media to stop reporting falsehood.
Koku Anyidoho was picked up last Tuesday by the CID for allegedly making some claims on public radio which have been deemed as treasonable.
He had early on indicated in an interview on Accra-based Happy FM that President Akufo-Addo will be overthrown because of the ratification of the controversial Ghana-US agreement saying it could spark a “social revolution” in Ghana and that history might repeat itself.
In the video below, the deputy education minister, Mrs Barbara Ayisi, speaks on how President Akufo-Addo inspires her, and how the president's success story must also inspire the youth of Ghana to greater heights.
