-Government has rubbished claims by the opposition New Patriotic Party of attempted attacks against their flagbearer, Nana Akuffo Addo
- Communications minister has described such claims as a 'prank'
Government has maintained that claims by some members of the opposition New Patriotic Party, of it planning to raid the residence of the party’s flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo are false.
The supporters were seen to have converged at the residence of the flagbearer in their numbers as they claimed their move was to protect Nana Akuffo Addo from being attacked by the Mahama-led administration.
Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, has in a statement revealed that said such claims should be ignored stating it is a calculated attempt by some individuals to create artificial tension in the country.
“I have contacted the BNI about a so called intended raid of the Nima offices of Mr Akufo Addo. BNI categorically denies any such intentions and urges the general public to ignore the pranks being played by some individuals to generate artificial tension in the country,” Dr. Omane stated.
The said claims come on the back of an alleged raid on the office of the Danquah Institute in the late Thursday night in which the NPP alleged that personnel believed to be drawn from the Ghana Police Service and the BNI on Thursday evening raided the office of the policy think tank, Danquah Institute in Accra.
