NDC diverting public vehicles for election campaign - NPP

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused the President John Mahama's National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration of diverting vehicles belonging  to government agencies for its November 2016 election campaign.

In a press conference held in Accra on Tuesday, the communications director of the NPP, Nana Akomea, described as credible, news that the NDC had rebranded Mahindra pick-ups belonging to the National Commission of Civic Education (NCCE) in preparation for its campaign.

He said if the NDC did not have anything to hide, the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) would not have arrested the Managing Director of Marbles and Granites on suspicion that he took and circulated pictures of the the pick ups while they were being rebranded at a yard on the Spintex Road in Accra.

 Mr Edmund Ayo Ani and two others were arrested last week on the orders of the National Security Adviser, Baba Kamara, for allegedly taking pictures of the vehicles and circulating them on social media.

They were held for sometime before being released.

Condemning the development, Nana Akomea accused Baba Kamara of taking Ghana back to the period when civil disputes were settled through the use of the coercive tools of the criminal justice system.
