- The Brong-Ahafo NPP youth organizer believes NDC members against the prosecution of Ibrahim Mahama are witches
- According to him, they should be sent to a witch cam since they do not want Ghana's progress
Kwame Baffoe a.ka. Abronye DC, the Brong-Ahafo Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, has demanded that members of the opposition National Democratic Congress, who are protesting against the recovery of monies owed to the state should be sent to witch camps.
According to him, such persons have ill intent towards the state, as they do not want progress, making them no better than the alleged witches in those camps.
Speaking on an Adom FM, the NPP youth leader said, "I think some politicians especially the NDC members are witches and should immediately be sent to the Gambaga witch camp because they are no different from them.
So the NDC members expect the NPP government to laugh because if Ibrahim’s conduct. Just imagine the huge money involved, even the person in the middle of this issue has said he will pay the money and so I don’t understand why those around him are fighting for him. A person who does not have the nation at heart has issued dud cheques to an institution which is against the laws of the country."
He further stated that his party now sat on the seat of government, with the majority vote in parliament, as such "if the NDC are not comfortable when people are punished for squandering states money then the majority should make a law that will see to it that all those who are against such act and are always talking about political witch hunting are transferred to the Gambaga witch camp because they are all witches and don’t want the country to move forward."
Abronye DC's comments come in the wake of the tax default scandal involving the CEO of Engineers and Planners and the brother of former president John Mahama, Ibrahim Mahama.
Ibrahim is currently being investigated by the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) for allegedly issuing 44 dud cheques to the Ghana Revenue Authority to settle duties on his goods at the Tema Port.
Following the revelation of his conduct, the GRA in the past week, ordered Ibrahim Mahama to pay over GHC 12 million to offset the debts he has incurred or facing having his goods auctioned off by the state.
Meanwhile, the GRA has denied requesting assistance from EOCO to investigate Ibrahim Mahama.
According to them, they have their own internal mechanisms for handling such cases and as such, have reached an agreement with the parties involved.
