Govt Assures Citizens Of Their Security Amidst Anyidohos Threats

2:32:00 PM

The Government, Tuesday, assured Ghanaians that it would appropriate lawful steps to protect the security of the state, while urging the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to condemn the treasonable comments of its Deputy General Secretary, Mr Koku Anyidoho.

In a statement issued by Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, the Minister of Information, the Government, however, said it had taken note of the statement made by Mr Johnson Asiedu-Nketia, by the General Secretary of the NDC, which dissociated the Party from Mr Anyidohos comments.

The statement said: The Governments attention has been drawn to the treasonable comments made by the Deputy General Secretary of the ... NDC, Koku Anyidoho, to the effect that the Government of President Akufo-Addo will be overthrown.

We find the NDCs reluctance to condemn Anyidoho, as particularly, disturbing because Anyidoho alleges that, ‘the coup détat is starting on Wednesday, and we know that the demonstration on Wednesday has the full endorsement of the NDC.

It is, therefore, critical that NDC demonstrates its commitment to democratic governance by showing that the Wednesday demonstration is not just a smoke screen for fomenting insurrection as Anyidoho claims.

We, therefore, call on the NDC to show its commitment to Democratic Governance by condemning unreservedly, the treasonable comments of its Deputy General Secretary.

Meanwhile, Police on Tuesday afternoon arrested Mr Anyidoho at and NDC press conference over the Ghana-US Military Cooperation agreement, at the Accra International Press Centre.

He has been sent to the Police Headquarters for investigations. Hundreds of party supporters have since besieged the place to show their solidarity.

Mr Anyidoho, in an interview with an Accra-based radio station, Monday, reportedly announced that a series of activities to unsettle the Akufo-Addo Government would take place, beginning with a planned nationwide demonstration, on Wednesday, March 28.

He referred to the overthrow, in 1972, of the Busia Administration, in which Mr Edward Akufo-Addo, the father of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, was the President, stating that history had an interesting way of repeating itself, among other things.
