A pressure group calling itself United Zongo for Bawumia is urgently on the security agencies to arrest the National Democratic Congress (NDC) general secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketiah.

IMG_20160108_110651Addressing Journalists at a press conference in Accra the Communication Director for the groupMr Ibrahim Ajei stated unequivocally that Mr. Asiedu Nketia, a.k.a ‘General Mosquito’ imported about 10,000 Togolese nationals to Ghana to register to vote in the 2012 elections.

Adding that, the NDC Generalc Secretary tasked some party members to do the recruitment.
“On August 20th 2015 a group of NDC activists engaged the media to communicate how they have been financially resourced by the leadership of the NDC, led by its General Secretary to illegally recruit over 10,000 Togolese citizens to register on the Ghana electoral roll in 2012,” Adjei alleged.

“The leader of the group, Robert Tetteyfio Adjase, accompanied by other leaders of the group namely Hohoe NDC chairman Harker Brempong, Ketu South chairman Doe Gadekah, Public Relations Officer Robert Kabutey and Victor Bogah stated categorically that the current register is riddled with names of Togolese from Aflao to Nkwanta in the northern Volta and that the over 76,000 Togolese found in the Ghanaian register was just an insignificant number compared to what really is the case,” the group said.

The group has therefore petitioned the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and other state security agencies to arrest and prosecute Nketia.

“The revelations by Adjase and his colleagues clearly affect national security yet the institutions that protect our state – in this case the BNI are sitting idle. So we urge the security services to exercise the authority that the State has invested in them and in light of the revelations of Adjase and his colleagues about how the NDC party financed the illegal registration of Togolese citizens – proceed forthwith to arrest Johnson Asiedu Nketia,” Adjei said.

The group warned that failure to do so will lead to a citizen’s arrest of the ruling party’s General Secretary.

According to the group, on January 6, 2015 at a press briefing in Accra , the NDC General Secretary John Asiedu Nketia demanded the arrest and prosecution of Alhaji Dr. Mahamadu Buwumia.

For all allegedly falsifying information about the Togolese voters’ register as a basis to demand for a replacement of Ghana’s electoral roll.

In his words : The reason why we are calling for the arrest of Alhaji Dr. Mahamadu Buwumia is that if you falsify public public documents with the intentions of deceiving people our laws should have away of dealing with you,”.

According to the Communication Director for the United Zongo for Buwumia Mr Ibrahim Adjei stated unequivocally that Asiedu Nketiah’s, comment and utterances are reprehensible and devoid of maturity.

This he said, there is no iota of truth in the statement the General secretary is giving to the public.
Besides, the office he holds lacks the respect and dignity of the people of Ghana.
