The Deputy director of communication of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anthony Kwaku Boahen, has described leaked audio by Hon. Ofosu Ampofo as doctored in a plot to disgrace the Honorable National Chairman.
He said: “I was at the meeting, he (Ofosu Ampofo) met with NDC communication officers, members representing NDC at parliament, and communicators on both Television and on the radio. It is not something new, we frequently meet with these people to talk about the way forward of the party”
“During the meeting, he said a lot of things, but people who are cruel and want to tarnish the name of our party always have a way of doing their things. A lot of people said the same thing, but unfortunately his (Ofosu Ampofo) own was doctored by these people because of what they want to achieve but that notwithstanding we have measures in place to see to whatever that went wrong for that tape to come out will not happen again”
Leaked audio of Hon. Ofosu Ampofo surfaced on the internet. In the audio, Hon. Ofosu is heard explaining the party’s intention against some members of the ruling party, the Clergy and the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah.
In the 16 minutes 27 seconds audio, Hon Ofosu Ampofo was also heard to confirm that the NDC vigilante group, Azorka boys were bused from Tamale to Ayawaso West Wuogon to cause mayhem, but they were repelled by the Kandahar Boys from Tamale who had been recruited by national security.
Kwaku Boahen defends Hon. Ofosu Ampofo
Speaking in an interview with Omanhene on Maakye aired on Kessben Fm/Kessben Tv, Kwaku Boahen defended the words of Hon. Ofosu Ampofo and questioned the responsibility of the peace council under the Akofo Addo led administration.
“We accept all that he (Ofosu Ampofo) said, if you listen to the audio very well we were clapping at the background, so that alone should tell you that we were happy and was in agreement with whatever he said, if we were not in agreement with what he said, we would not have clapped for him… the world has to understand that there is no peace council in Ghana, it was only under John Mahama led NDC administration where we had something called peace council.” He opined.
