Lead Counsel for the Deputy National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe has called the prosecution of his client, Mr. Kweku Boahen as ridiculous.
According to the attorney, the government would have discovered that his client was miles away from the party’s headquarters where the alleged meeting is believed to have been held should the government had conducted a thorough investigations into the issue before taking the case to court.
“It is disappointing that with all the security apparatus the Republic has, the Republic comes to court and says my client Kweku Boahen on the 3rd of February was at the Party’s headquarters whereas a little investigation would show that Kweku Boahen was nowhere near the party’s headquarters on that day. ”
He further cautioned the Attorney-General to desist from using the dignified and distinguished office of the Attorney–General to be pushing political party agendas.
He explained that, if the AG had wanted to work objectively, she would have identified that Mr. Kweku Boahen was nowhere close to the meeting.
“I will like to advise the learned Attorney- General to desist from some of these foot-solidarism activitiesas the office of the Attorney-General is a very noble office. I mean, how can you bring a citizen of this country to the court and press criminal charges against the person as a little investigation would disprove all allegations.”

General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. Asiedu Nketiah has described the trial of their Party’s Chairman, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, over the purported violence inciting leaked tape as a mere intimidation of the party by the ruling New Patriotic Party government.
The long standing General Secretary of the party in an interaction with the media explained that, the accusations leveled against the Chairman and his prosecution is a clear indication of government’s attempt to intimidate the party as the incumbent government failed to establish a concrete and confident case in court.
“It is just political intimidation and I am not sure it will end anywhere because the government wasn’t confident in the charges they were claiming and as such we the NDC think this is intimidation.”
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah popularly known in the political circles as General Mosquito stated that the entire process would not have any major setback on the NDC but would result in the removal of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo from office or his “unconstitutional rule”.
“This is the beginning of the fall of Nana Akuffo’s government. He has demonstrated to the whole world his disregard for rule of law but Insha Allah; it will result in his removal from office.”
