There is blood on Akufo Addo’s hands – Joshua Akamba
National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Joshua Akamba has blamed President Akufo Addo over lives lost in the Ejura riots, saying his hands are stained with blood.
The firebrand NDC executive says the Government’s failure to clamp down on the lawlessness in the security services is an indictment to the 77- year old president, who seems to have no direction in the country’s security affairs.
Speaking to Oheneba Boamah Bennie on Battleground on Power FM, Akamba said the militarisation of civilians under a supposed human rights lawyer-turned president is unprecedented.
“Akufo Addo will go down in history as the worse president in Africa,” Akamba said in reaction to the Ejura shooting that killed two protesters last week.
“Nana Akufo-Addo, there is blood on your hands because he is the Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, so when soldiers shoot anyhow on innocent, rioting citizens, their blood will have to be on the president’s hands.
“President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia, blood stains are on your hands for looking on for that to happen to innocent people, he added.
He said his party will continue to hold the government to account in the face of what he described as growing lawlessness by militias of the NPP administration pushed into in the security services.
The NDC organized a demonstration last Tuesday to seek justice for the family of a social activist Ibrahim Mohammed (Kaaka) who was murdered by a mob at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
Kaaka’s death sparked an angry protest at Ejura in the Ashanti region last Tuesday where a joint taskforce of police and military shot sporadically into the civilians, killing two.
6 others were injured in the process, sparking a national conversation on insecurity in the country.
Akamba believes the inquiry set by the government will not provide justice for the aggrieved families.
