National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, says the charges leveled against the National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo were borne out of sheer hatred and malice.
According to him, the NDC National Chairman did no wrong, as what was happening was a clear politically-motivated case which the government was using the security force to send Ofosu- Ampofo to court, simply because he is ‘worrying the ruling NPP government’.
Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Sammy Gyamfi insisted that the government wants the police to prosecute the NDC Chairman just to waste his time and also instil some form of fear in him as well as NDC members.

“These charges don’t make sense; we cannot see the logic in the charges, because which Public Officer has the Chairman asked to be attacked or assaulted?,” Sammy Gyamfi opined.
He maintained that President Akufo-Addo and his government want to use the law to intimidate and suppress the leaders and members of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, was reportedly captured on a tape, detailing plans to tarnish the reputations of some people in key public offices.
