A Leading member of the New Patriotic party (NPP) Dr. Yaw osafo Marfo has been challenged to produce the un- doctored version of the tape which was alleged to have made ethno-centric comments.
Convener of the Coalition for the Defence of Equal Citizenship (CODEC) Godwin Edudzi Tamaklo disclosed that Dr. Yaw Osafo Marfo’s Comment were captured during a meeting with the Eastern Regional Council of Elders of the NPP on January 29, at the Oyinka Hotel afiduase in Koforidua.
At a news conference in Accra, Mr. Tamaklo urged Dr. Osafo Marfo to admit his wrong doings and desist from making his party members cast doubt over the authenticity of the tape.
Mr. Tamaklo said it was sad that after alleging that the tape was doctored, Dr. Osafo Marfo failed to indicate which portions had been tampered with.
He said the comments represent a major setback to the effort made by their forbears, and the current generation of citizen’s in this country, to build a country in which tolerance, unity, togetherness and respect for diversity exist.
He said they are committed to all the equality of all Ghanaians and all person liberty.
The Convener therefore pledged the readiness of CODEC to remain totally committed to the principles of equity and fairness in the extension of opportunities to the people to aspire to the leadership of the country, irrespective of their ethnic background.
“Dr. Osafo Marfo strategy to cast doubt over the tape has only strengthened our resolve to create even a greater awareness through series of activities about the dangers inherit in hated speeches,”
“We are resolved and determine to defend the 1992 constitution of the republic of Ghana which provides that all people should be equal before the law.
