Ghanaian Minority in Parliament is requesting the immediate resignation of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over the Osu Castle Militia exposé arguing that he has lost every moral right to lead the country. (Video below)
Addressing the media following the exposé by Journalist Manesseh Awuni, the deputy minority leader, James Klutse Avedzi, charged the Inspector General of Police to arrest all the young men caught in the documentary.
The documentary revealed the existence of a pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) militia that trains in a top government security facility. The pro-governing NPP militia, De-Eye Group, trains and is headquartered at Osu Castle in Accra, a security zone.
Until 2013, the Osu Castle was the seat of government. Currently, it is an Annex to the Seat of Government, the Jubilee House.
But according to the Ketu North MP the Police must conduct further investigations into circumstances under which the young men were given access to castle which a while ago served as the seat of government.
The content of the undercover report which was aired last night is not only unsettling, it makes for grim commentary. Indeed, it shakes the very foundations of the notion that Ghana remains a stable democratic State. That façade appears to have been stripped bare.
Since the airing of “The Militia in the Heart of the Nation,” dark clouds now hang over our dear nation as many ponder deeply on the direction of our country under the duplicitous and deceptive leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Mr. Avedzi reiterated demand by religious bodies and CSOs to take charge of dialogue towards disbanding political party vigilante groups given in the wake of recent revelations.
