- The minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has reacted to calls for the resignation of President Akufo-Addo
- According to him, the call for the resignation is nothing more than an attempt to divert attention
- The call for the president's resignation followed the discovery of a group of people who operated from a military facility
The minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has dismissed calls for President Akufo-Addo’s resignation, following a report of the activities of militias in a security facility.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the people, known as De-Eye Group, have since been ousted from the facility
According to a report by Citinewsroom.com, Nkrumah has described the call for the president’s exit from office as a “vain political attention seeking attempt.”
He added that the move is nothing more than an attempt to divert attention from the ongoing investigations against the national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
Ofosu Ampofo was reportedly captured on tape calling on NDC members to attack the personalities of some prominent Ghanaians.
He also allegedly admitted that the NDC brought vigilante groups to the venue of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
Nkrumah went on to say the video released by the Multimedia Group concerning the De-Eye Group is sensational, misleading and has nothing to do with a militia operation from the heart of the nation.
He explained that the documentary “carried a number of significant misrepresentations and misleading impressions.”
He also insisted that the documentary did not offer any evidence linking the group to any act of violence.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has also denied having any form of affiliation with the De-Eye group, and said it did not support their activities in any way.
