NDC Wants To Ruin Ghana – Govt

According to Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, minister of information, the NDC’s “Arise Ghana Demo” actions against the police are a clear attempt by the opposition party to sow unrest in the nation.

He asserted, “We don’t need to mince words about it; there is an apparent attempt to sow instability in our country at this time. There is a progression. At the beginning, there was a group that wanted to demonstrate with weapons. This group claimed that they intended to demonstrate all night long till the next morning. Evident security concerns were expressed by the police regarding that.

Speaking on the subject, he said that the officers maintained their composure and completed their task even when they were attacked by the protesters.

“First, we should commend the Policemen and women for their professionalism. IGP was very clear that [the demonstrators are supposed to be your brothers and sisters, treat them with decorum, assist them to exercise their constitutional right under Article 21(1)(d) which gives you the right to join an assembly to protest as you please”.

“Even when they were attacked by these persons, though they had a superior force that they could use even in their defense, in compliance with the instruction of their superior they still kept their calm and did their best to control the situation”.

“This is even daytime, broad daylight at Obra Spot here at Accra, you have people attacking Police in this manner, can you imagine what could have happened at night if some of these things were allowed to continue throughout the night,” he said on the Good Evening program Tuesday, June 28.

The Police announced that 12 officers have been injured during the demonstration by members of the Arise Ghana pressure group on Tuesday, June 28.

The injured officers have been transferred to the Police hospital in Accra for further treatment.

“Some Police vehicles have also been damaged,” the Police said in a statement.

The Police further described the development as shameful.

“What a shame, we were there to protect you and ensure your safety, but you throw stones at us, injure and hurt us. This behavior is unacceptable and must be condemned.”
