The Bole-Bamboi constituency communication officer of the National Democratic Congress,Mr Amantana Bashiru, has vehemently chastised Ernest Owusu Bempah,the Convener of the Fixing the Country Movement for politicizing crime in the country.
He said such a stance by Ernest Owusu Bempah is not only childish but highly inimical since crime has no colour.
Speaking on Yagbon radio morning”Tea cup” on Monday September 27, 2021, Mr Amantana emphasized that crime is a national issue which affects every individual irrespective of one’s religion, political or social background.
‘Politicising crime is a shame and must be stopped”, he told host Abdul Fataw.
He made these revelations in a reaction to comments made by the Convener of the Fixing the Country Movement, Ernest Owusu Bempah accusing the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and former President John Dramani Mahama of being behind the lie told by 28-year-old Takoradi woman Josephine Panyin Mensah that she was kidnapped and was also pregnant.
At a press conference in Accra on Sunday, September 26, 2021, Owusu Bempah indicated that the current National Chairman of the NDC is caught on tape allegedly plotting with some bigwigs of the party regarding how they are going to destabilise the country and make it ungovernable through actions such as kidnapping.
Ernest Owusu Bempah during the press conference said ” The National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, in the run up to the 2020 elections was caught on tape hatching an evil plot against the state. Per the voice on the tape, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is allegedly heard talking about planning a road-map of criminal activities targeted at the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Chairman of the National Peace Council, among others.
The Fixing The Country Movement is not unaware of the political machinations of the NDC and how they are desperate to plunge this country into chaos. It is quite clear that this is the handiwork of those who are desperate for power and will do and employ any tactic fair or foul to achieve their selfish ambition. And this their latest shenanigan has back fired, Ernest Owusu Bempah stated.
