Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, Koku Anyidoho has found himself on the wrong side of the law after he granted an interview with Accra-based radio station, Happy FM, and made statements to the effect that President Nana Akufo-Addo could be overthrown by a coup d’état just like his late father, for his mismanagement of the country.
That threat of a coup has not gone down well with the security apparatus of the country, who arrested the tough-talking NDC deputy general secretary in a dramatic fashion, Tuesday afternoon at the International Press Centre where the party in collaboration with other individuals were planning a mammoth demonstration against government for ratifying the controversial Ghana-US Military Cooperation agreement has been charged with treason.
His lawyer Victor Adawudu who confirmed the charge to Joy News monitored by Razzonline.com also reported the police as saying the suspect will not be released.
Coincidentally,Razzonline.com has come across an article by which a staunch member of the NPP,Samuel Awuku who was then the National Youth Organizer also calling for a ‘Civil revolt’ against the John Manaha-led administration in 2014 in an interview at Oman FM.
- Kindly read what Sammy Awuku said in the article below:
The National Youth Organizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Samuel Awuku is calling for a ‘civil revolt’ against the Mahama-led administration.
According to him, this is the time when sacrifice must be borne in the supreme interest of Ghana.
“Let’s put our destiny into our own hands and demonstrate against government because that is the only language the government understands,” Awuku told Accra-based Oman FM.
He said the administration of John Mahama for the past two years has subjected Ghana to abuse with his incompetence.
“Mahama is raping Ghana with his incompetence. The NDC only came to create, loot, share and kill us,” he added. The NPP youth leader said he is not surprised with NDC’s performance because ‘they came to power based on false promises.’
He described as worrying the treatment meted out to Ghanaians by “this incompetence”. “Ghanaians have been tolerant for too long and it is time to take our destiny into our own hands. There has to be democracy on the streets,” he exclaimed.
Sammy Awuku also advised members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to stop the internal bickering and unite for power. He noted that: “we should not delude ourselves into thinking that 2016 will be a cool chop if we are divided. “We have an election to win in 2016 so let’s stop massaging egos in 2014” Awuku stated.
Well,was Sammy Awuku’s comments liable for treason ?
