The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to arrest, investigate and prosecute Bryan Acheampong.
This follows some comments made by Mr. Acheampong who is the Member of Parliament for Abetifi and Minister for Food and Agriculture.
Addressing members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after a health walk at Mpraeso on Saturday, April 8, 2023, Mr. Acheampong stated categorically that the NPP will never hand over power to the NDC. He said the NPP will use whatever means possible to hold on to power come 2025.
“If the NDC think they will go into the 2024 election with intimidation, harassment and foolishness, then we will show them that we have the men”, he emphasized.
“It will never happen that we the NPP will hand over power to the NDC”, he added.
The petition which was signed by the Director of Legal Affairs of the NDC, Abraham Amaliba is calling on the CID and the Inspector General of Police to immediately arrest and prosecute Mr. Acheampong.
Mr. Amaliba described the statement by Bryan Acheampong as an affront to the constitution and a threat to the security of Ghana.
Excerpts of the petition read, “Your Petitioner notes as a matter of fact that, the alacrity with which you are prosecuting the NDC Suame Constituency Youth Organiser and urges you to replicate same to the Hon Bryan Acheampong. One of the foundation pillars of the rule of law is equality before the law and the maxim of equity is equality is equity.”
“Your Petitioner says that he is certain without any fear of contradiction that the statements of Hon Bryan Acheampong is on all fours with the pronouncements of the Suame NDC Constituency Youth Organiser that led to his arrest the basis upon which he currently stands trial in Court in Kumasi.”
“Your Petitioner well-nigh believe that arrest, investigations, preferment of criminal charges, arraignment and prosecutions are discretionary but good conscience, equity and natural justice require that precedents be followed to uphold the sanctity of criminal prosecutions in the Country.”
