- NDC's chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has advised the CID to deal with their failures
- This comes after the CID invited him to assist with investigations
- In his reply, he stated that the CID merely wishes to use him as a scapegoat
The national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has advised the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), to focus on fixing its failures.
His comments follow an invitation from the CID to him, with regard to an ongoing investigation about kidnappings and fire outbreaks.
According to him, the CID intends to use him as a scapegoat to cover up its challenges in performing its duties.
Per a Dailymailgh.com report, the CID explained that some people, who have been picked by the police, mentioned Ofosu Ampofo’s name in the course of investigations.
The NDC has meanwhile written to the CID to inform it of their decision to prevent Ofosu Ampofo from honouring their invitation.
Their reason, YEN.com.gh understands, is because the CID, as well as other units of the Ghana Police Service (GPS) are colluding with the government to harass NDC members.
“Our client has instructed us to make it abundantly clear to you, which we hereby do, that he is a politician, and as the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, the largest opposition party in the country, he and his party leadership and members cannot help but notice the failing security situation in the country since the present government took office,” the letter said.
