Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide, Kweku Baako says Communications Officer of the NDC Sammy Gyamfi’s threat to Security Officers could have collateral damage on his party.
Sammy Gyamfi who is the Communications Officer of the NDC threatened security officers that they will lose their jobs if President Nana Addo is voted out of power.
Kweku Baako speaking on Joy FM’s NewsFile said these comments could have a collateral damage on the NDC and urged Mahama to caution or even reprimand him.
“He has shown he has no knowledge of how the police operate, policemen have had cases, gone to court and won. So Sammy Gyamfi going on that line is totally out of place. What he said is avoidable because it has collateral damage for the NDC, these are things you don’t say. For a Communication Officer for a party to go about and make such a statement if I were former John Mahama I would have called him and caution him or even reprimand him.”
Sammy Gyamfi in a press conference held on July 22, 2020, indicated that security officials who he accused were in bed with the President will be mercilessly dealt with when the NDC comes into power.
“The police officers and the military officers are making their career conterminous with that of President Akufo-Addo. The day President Akufo-Addo exits office will be the last day they will serve as policemen and military men and we will deal with them mercilessly”.
Sammy Gyamfi further took to his twitter handle to stress his message as he tweeted: “Notice is hereby served to all unscrupulous Security Officials who have lent themselves to the despotic Akufo Addo-gov’t as pliant agents of violence against innocent citizens, that the next NDC gov’t will fish them out and deal with them mercilessly when power eventually shifts”.
These comments by the Communications Director did not sit well with many who have hit back at him and asked him to apologize and retract.
