NDC Leadership of Ningo-Prampram has strongly condemned the recent attack on its Member of Parliament, Samuel George Nettey.

In a statement copied to Peacefmonline.com, the leadership called on the police to with immediate effect “do the needful and approach this case with all the seriousness” to redeem their “bad image” under the Nana Addo-led administration.

“Whilst condemning this heinous attack on our Member of Parliament, we wish to urge the Ghana Police Service, to as a matter of urgency do the needful and approach this case with all the seriousness and the professionalism it can command, to help redeem its rather sinking image under this Nana Addo-led NPP administration,” Constituency Secretary Okoe Mensah said.

Sam George was assaulted during the confusion at the La Bawaleshie Presby school polling station in the early hours of Thursday morning.

He, however, accused the NPP of unleashing vigilantes on him – but the NPP, however, denied any of the accusations leveled against them.

Below is the full statement

The leadership of the NDC and the Ningo-Prampram Secretariat has taken notice of the brutal and barbaric attacks on our Member of Parliament, Hon. Samuel Nartey George and many other innocent party folks.

The Member of Parliament, who was going about performing his lawful duty of monitoring the by-election at AYAWASO WEST WUOGON CONSTITUENCY on Thursday 31st January 2019, was bounced upon and brutally beaten amidst several gunshots by heavily built gunmen, purported to be members of the NPP's "Invisible Forces" at the La-Bawaleshie Presby polling station. 

The MP has sustained several wounds on many part of his body as a result of slaps meted at him, as well as the back of a gun used to physically assault him.

This we see as an attack on constitutional democracy and the rule of law. This condemnable act is a significant case of the state of insecurity that we find ourselves in as a country. This act reflects a complete breakdown of law and order under the Nana Addo led NPP government and an affront on the Democratic gains made so far as a country, where a Member of Parliament gets attacked by gunmen in the full glare of the police, without any protection.

Whilst condemning this heinous attack on our Member of Parliament, we wish to urge the Ghana Police service, to as a matter of urgency do the needful and approach this case with all the seriousness and the professionalism it can command, to help redeem its rather sinking image under this Nana Addo-led NPP administration.

We also wish to remind the NPP government about its cardinal responsibility to keep Ghana, all its citizen and their properties safe at all times without any fear of discrimination,  be it ethnic, religious or Political !

We also wish to take this opportunity to express our deepest sympathy and solidarity to our Hon. Member of parliament, Samuel George Nartey and all other victims of the brutalities that happened at AYAWASO WEST WUOGON, urging him to exercise maximum restraint in this very difficult times with the assurance that he can count on the support of the NDC leadership and the constituency Secretariat at all times till this issue is brought to its logical conclusion.

Thank you.

Long Live the NDC. ..
Long Live Ningo-Prampram

ƐYƐ ZU.... ƐYƐ ZA.

...Signed...

OKOE MENSAH
Constituency Secretary
