Chief Scribe of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia has explained the rationale behind the appointments of Mr. David Asante Apeatu and Georgina Theodora Wood as Inspector General of Police (IGP) and Chief Justice (CJ) respectively.
According to him, former President Kufuor chose the outgoing Chief Justice to head the country’s judiciary to cover up the party’s alleged links with the infamous missing cocaine saga under the erstwhile New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration.
“The current IGP has been elevated because he covered up NPP members who murdered Ya-Naa Yakubu Adani II in the Kufuor administration” he alleged on Kumasi-based Nhyiria FM.
Mr. Asante Apeatu was the lead investigator tasked by the Kufuor government to investigate the death of the late King of Dagbon but Mr Asiedu Nketia insists he was only given the current top police job following his alliance with the NPP.
Commenting on the recent allegation of murder against the Upper East Regional Minister, Hon. Rockson Bukari and the Gender Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba of having hand in the gruesome murder of the former Region chairman of NPP, he said Daniel Bugri Naabu, Minister for Gender and Social Protection Ms Otiko Afisa Djaba and Minister for Upper East Region Rockson Bukari must immediately bearrested.
He indicated that the three following allegations made by Bugri himself are complicit in the death of the former Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, Mahama Adams and should arrested and investigated for their roles.
Though the Daniel Bugri Naabu has publicly apologized for the comments indicating that he has no facts to back the claim except what police investigators put out and that his comment was borne out of a slip of tongue, the NDC scribe believes that should not be accepted.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia accused NPP National Executives of concealing the main suspects behind the death of the former Regional Chairman.
He observed that the apology and retraction of the allegations against the Ministers by the NPP Northern Regional Chairman is not enough unless the suspects are identified and brought to book.
