A former Deputy Northern Regional Minister Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini has observed that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is doing the reverse of what it promised Ghanaians in the run-up to the 2016 general elections.
He said the party and its leaders criticized the former administration of being incompetent and also led by incompetent leadership, but four months after taking the reins of power it appears to be at sea and not knowing exactly how to manage the country’s economy from its diagnosis.
The Sagnarigu constituency lawmaker wondered where the competence it claimed it has, had gone in the wake members of its vigilante groups flouting the country’s laws with impunity and being aided by the party to get away with it.
Commenting on the acquittal of 8 members of Pro-NPP vigilante group, Delta Force, he questioned the competence of the current regime if it could allow persons who physically attacked a state institution in a Hollywood style to walk free.
Speaking on Pan Africa TV on Friday, Alhaji A. B.A expressed shock on how the state through the Attorney General showed “crass incompetence” in the case by allowing the suspects off the hook in the name of lack of evidence.
While standing by the calls on the minority side of parliament for the re-arrest of all 8 suspects to face prosecution, he concurred with proposition by former Deputy Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Joseph Yamin that the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akuffo be fired for doing a poor job.
“She has failed in her position as the legal advisor of government and must be shown the exit.
It would be recalled that Eight (8) members of the Pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Force who were standing trial for aiding 13 of their colleagues to abscond were on Wednesday May 17, 2017 freed by a Kumasi Circuit Court for want of evidence.
When the case was called, the Principal State Attorney Marie Louise-Simmons told the Court that the state was no longer interested in pursuing the case indicating it was as a result of the fact that “the evidence available makes it extremely impossible to successfully prosecute any of the suspects.”
Adding, “two police officers who were at the court when the accused persons committed the offence could not identify the suspects”.
