Some irate members of the NPP’s invisible forces Monday stormed the town hall meeting at Tema to threaten the government of mayhem if they are not immediately given jobs.
According to the group, officials of the Akufo-Addo government, who hitherto to the elections were on good terms with them, suddenly do not pick up their calls if they call them.
“We mobilised ourselves to come and meet you and you promised us that there are some jobs on the way coming, we exchanged numbers with those that were supposed to employ us. I have called them for almost two months now, nobody is ready to answer my calls.
“And we are the soldiers and will still be the soldiers. Please, we want to tell our people, if they will not give us jobs to do, what happened in Kumasi will happen in Accra. We are even ashamed, some of us are home and they are laughing at us,” an angry member of the group told the gathering at the event, which was being hosted by the Ministry of Information.
The invisible forces have been noted for chaos and mayhem since the Akufo-Addo government assumed office.
An affiliate of the group, Delta Forces, in April stormed a Kumasi High court and freed some of its members who were standing trial.
The NPP has admitted they used the youth groups, often made up of muscled men, to protect the ballot during the 2016 elections.
