Maverick New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North Kennedy Agyapong has alleged that the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has connived with the government to select only National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters for the newly formed taskforce.
The NPP MP charged his party to resist any attempt by the current government to rig the upcoming November general elections.
He believes the military is being compromised because it is in bed with the government, machinating to harass NPP members during the November 7 polls.
Addressing hundreds of party supporters at Asokwa a suburb of Kumasi over the weekend, the firebrand MP charged them to be vigilant and fight with their lives to foil plans by government to deploy a military police task force to intimidate voters on election day.
‘After voting in either November 7, or December 7 don’t go home, stay behind and watch activities that will unfold, even if you have to sacrifice for the party by fasting do so, the Military Police led by their Chief of Staff Adazi has selected NDC members to form elections taskforce, they have planned to intimidate voters who will hang around after voting. Bet you the military will even forget how they were trained, will we run if military personnel attempt to kill a larger crowd like this, there is no way the military will shoot all of us, Layi lala,’ he asserted.
