Sam George rants; says Kan Dapaah and Bryan Acheampong lied about Ayawaso incident

The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, has stated that the accounts of all three security ministers who appeared before the Emile Short Commission were total fabrications and outright lies.

According to Sam George who appeared before the committee today, their claims about how he ended up at the La-Bawaleshie polling centre were lies.

"On the issue of my arrival at the La Bawaleshie polling station, My Lord, I have followed the work of the commission, there have been several versions of my arrival that contradict themselves, but altogether are pure fabrications," he said.

The MP refuted claims that he came to the polling station on motorbikes or he came with fellow MP, Okoe Vanderpuye.

Sam George said DSP Azugu who was SWAT commander for the operation of masked armed men also lied in his testimony to the commission.

In his narration to the Justice Emile Short Commission today, Monday, February 25, 2019, he denied arriving at the La-Bawaleshie polling station in the company of NDC supporters on motorbikes.

He claimed he drove to the polling centre alone in his vehicle after touring the Okponglo polling station having arrived on Legon campus earlier in the morning.

The MP also added that claims by the Minister of State in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong, that he was in the company of MP, for Ablekuma South, Okoe Vanderpuye when he arrived in the constituency are all untrue.

After the Ayawaso violent incident, Vice President Bawumia constituted a Commission of Inquiry into the incident.

The committee who is chaired by Emile Short has began interrogating prime officials who were mentioned in the incident.

After interrogating some officials, the commission invited Sam George who was slapped by some macho men at the La-Bawaleshie polling station.

Mr. George explained that he only sought to ask the National Security operative he identified as Mohammed Sule if he was a national security operative or a party agent and that led to the slap.
