Statement On Arrest Of Abirem Constituency NDC PC & Three Others

On Friday, September4, 2020; the NPP, as a law abiding party in Abirem Constituency, lodged a complaint with the New Abirem District police station on the removal of the NPP party flags and posters at Adausena by some NDC apparatchiks.

The police followed up on the report and the culprits of the said act were arrested.

The Abirem Constituency NPP wants to unequivocally state that the DCE, Hon. Remond Nana Damptey, did not instruct the District Police Commander to detain the culprits.

Again, it must be stated that the NDC Parliamentary Candidate, Mad. Mavis Ama Frimpong, was neither arrested nor detained as the NDC party in Abirem wants the public to believe.

We believe this is a calculated diabolical and malicious attempt to create an unfounded diversion in order to win sympathy for the NDC party in Abirem.

The NPP in Abirem Constituency believes and holds firm to democratic principles and condemns all forms of indiscipline.

We are grateful to the Police Service for their prompt response and do applaud them for maintaining peace and tranquility in the Constituency.

Thank you.
