The National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi and other NDC members have been reportedly chased out of the Revenue Division at the Tema Port on Friday, June 26, 2020.
Sammy Gyamfi was in the company of Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, and Isaac Adongo when the incident happened.
Officers at the port took the decision to throw them out of the premises when the members of the opposition party attempted to address the media at the revenue office of the port.
Speaking to the media after the incident, Sammy Gyamfi said they were at the Tema Port to evaluate the impact of the newly-introduced Integrated Customs Management System, ICUMS.
“As a political party, we heard and took notice of agitations of various stakeholder groups here about the implementation challenges associated with the newly introduced UNIPASS ICUMS system. So we came here to engage with the stakeholders to better understand what the challenges are,” he said.
The newly-introduced goods clearing system known as ICUMS which went live on June 1 has been widely criticized by freight forwarders who continue to lament over the delays they endure in an attempt to clear goods.
Meanwhile, former president and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has expressed his party's disappointment in the ruling of the Supreme Court.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, June 25, 2020, Mahama said the legal team of the NDC is examining this decision even as they await the full judgment from the Supreme court.
