NDC’s claim that NPP is recruiting foot soldiers for security agencies is baseless – Majority

The Majority has rejected claims by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the government is illegally recruiting NPP foot soldiers for security agencies.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says these measures are attempts by the NDC to exacerbate tensions ahead of the 2024 elections.

Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson on Monday alleged, without providing evidence, that all NPP parliamentary candidates had been given 30 positions each to fill security agencies.

“The NDC minority can authoritatively state that not long ago, the NPP government again illegally and fraudulently awarded 30 positions to all NPP parliamentary candidates across the country for recruitment into the security services,” he alleged. .

Addressing journalists in Parliament, Deputy Majority Leader Patricia Appiagyei warned the NDC against making false claims that could destabilize the peace and security of the country.

Patricia Appiagyei says the NDC’s claims are so baseless that they defy any mathematical logic as the government cannot afford to recruit almost 10,000 people into the security agencies.

Meanwhile, Majority Leader Frank Annoh-Dompreh suggests that the NDC allegation may further point to the fact that the practice occurred under the NDC.

On Monday, the NPP legislator for Mpraeso, Davis Ansah Opoku, also refuted the allegations.
