A member of New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Communications team, Hopeson Adorye says he will mobilize members of his party to take over all public toilets in the country.
According to him, their move is in retaliation to similar violent takeovers by supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress in 2009 when the party won power.
“We experienced the same situation in the hands of supporters of the NDC when the NPP lost in 2009 therefore will not relent in our efforts to pay them back. We will continue seizing and taking over toilets and all government properties because we are in power” he said on Accra based Okay fm.
Some youth alleged to be loyalists of the NPP in other regions of the country after the swearing in of President Nana Addo Dankwa besieged government offices to take over management, while others have destroyed some government property claiming their party is now in power, and they have the right to take over state agencies.
There have been concerns that the party is looking on unconcerned. But the police said all cases reported to them will be sent to court for prosecution to serve as deterrent.
But Mr. Adorye said, the police especially the Inspector General of Police (IGP) John Kudalor and the Public Relations Director of the Ghana Police Service, Cephas Arthur has no right to arrest them because they have been acting in the interest of the NDC.
“When the NPP is attacked, Cephas Arthur and his cohorts don’t even bother arresting people but when NDC is attacked, then they start taking measures and issuing releases and condemning it”.
“We are going to take action against these bias policemen because they are all active members of the NDC. We are going to make sure that some of these officers will not be at post” he declared.
