The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stated that some happening has become topical and need to be addressed.
Speaking at the NDC weekly press briefing, Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Director of Elections of NDC, says our nation is on a downward spiral fast descending to the edge of the preescipers.
He further stated that the earlier men and women of conscience spoke the better it will be for the peace and stability of the nation.
“What are the crimes of these innocent people who are being beaten, attacked, maimed and killed? Friends, their only crime is to grave the odds, particularly in this period when COVID-19 is ravaging our country to exercise their rights to be registered as voters in the ongoing voter registration exercise and to ensure vigilance needed to protect the integrity and sanctity of our electoral process,” Elvis Afriyie Ankrah stated.
Speaking on the incident involving the MP for Awutu Senya East, at Step to Christ polling station, said Mavis Hawa Koomson without any provocation invaded the voter registration centre in the company of gun welding thugs of the NPP to assault NDC party agents.
He further stated that they burnt motorbikes belonging to NDC supporter and ordinary Ghanaians mailing around and fired a sporadic gunshot endangering the lives of the constituents and distracting the entire voter registration exercise.
“It is worthy to point out that this incident is one of several coordinated and unprovoked attacks on our members and ordinary Ghanaians in the ongoing voter’s registration exercise in the Awutu Senya District by Hawa Koomson and her NPP goons whom she has imported from Bawku,” he added.
Mr Adams also says these attacks started from the first day of the registration exercise when an NDC Agent named Daniel Takyi Mensah was assaulted by some hooligans numbering about fifteen (15) who were lead by the Michael Esuman Mensah, NPP Kasoa municipal chief executive.
He noted that the case was reported to the Kasoa Divisional Command yet no arrest has been made.
He also noted another attack on a branch executive and NDC party agent called Ebenezer Tetteh whose head was smashed with a concrete block by a member of NPP bandit which is lead by Hawa Koomson. He said this case has also been reported to the Kasoa Divisional Police with a video capturing Francis Tetteh a known NPP thug hitting the parties agent head with the block, yet no arrest has been made.
He said a third attack was on an NDC agent called Prosper Amuzu executed by these same gangsters brought in from Bawku by Hawa Koomson numbering thirteen (13) but led by Ato Koomson, her son.
He said as though these attacks were not enough, their next stop was Kasoa New town electoral area which happens to be another stronghold of the NDC in Kasoa. Nana One NPP constituency youth organizer and a member of the delta forces stormed the Ayawaso west by-election let these gangsters of land guards brutally assault NDC agents living them with deep cutlass wounds on their heads, again the case was reported to the Kasoa Divisional Police with no arrest till date.
“Two (2) days before the shooting incident at the step to Christ polling station, the NPP thugs led by Hawa Koomson attacked and assaulted our ward coordinator Abdulai at the Jomans electoral area. Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, it is worth noting that all these violent attacks on our innocent supporters were committed by the same thugs imported from Bawku to Kasoa by Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson,” he noted.
