If the undercover work done by Manazeh Azure Awuni of Joy FM, had anything to do with the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the rustic Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), whose voice sounds like he has swallowed frog, would quickly have organized a press conference to rain insults on the NDC.
Issues that are nowhere near the magnitude of what was captured in the undercover work, had Mr Asamoah, leave his work in Parliament to the NPP headquarters to address the media and concoct lies to paint the NDC black.
A principled man does not pick and choose, what is wrong is wrong, no matter who commits it. When the doctored voice recording of the Chairman of the NDC, Ofosu Ampofo, was released, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, in less than twenty four hours, hurriedly called a press conference to lambast not only the chairman but the NDC.
Yaw Buabeng Asamoah’s defeaning dramatization of that issue, as if he himself, was not in the past a victim of leaked tape, exposes the hypocrisy that defines his character.
One spoke of the possibility of an attack, the other is a video of young men, who are being trained in all manner of military tactics, including weapon handling, who among the two is a threat to our existence as a country?
Instead, the rustic man, could only manage a press statement to weave around the issue. The NPP, cannot claim innocence over the issue.
The use of the Osu Castle, a former seat of government, as a training ground for a pro-government militia group called ‘De-Eye’, is enough testament that, the NPP, is only running away, because they have been caught pant down.
We are of the considered opinion that, the insincerity so far displayed by president, Akufo-Addo and the NPP, is the stumbling block to finding lasting solution to vigilantism in the country.
The president promises one thing and then turns around to do the opposite.
