The Founder and leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana LPG, Percival Kofi Akpaloo, says, that the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, must be arrested for allegedly inciting some members of the opposition NDC to storm the Electoral Commission’s meeting at a Hotel in Accra over the weekend.
Sam George, secured an ex-parte injunction against the meeting in Prampram, which is within his constituency. The injunction is in place from April 24, 2020, to April 27, 2020.
An unhappy Kofi Akpaloo, speaking on Accra-based Kingdom FM, noted that that, the violent behavior of the Member of Parliament was criminal hence be arrested immediately for his conduct.
“Why must Sam George, Otukonor and other NDC members attack the Electoral Commission (EC) for performing its legal duties, I don’t even know why they have not been arrested for the violent and criminal behavior towards the EC. I’m urging the Ghana Police Service to arrest Sam George and the other NDC members now to serve as a deterrent to others,’’ Percival Kofi Akpaloo mentioned.
“I want to say that no one can prevent the EC from compiling a new voter’s register, so the intimidation by the National Democratic Congress(NDC) will not end anywhere, ’’he added.
The law-maker, is said to have led over 100 NDC supporters to the new venue in an attempt to disrupt the meeting, an action observers, believe but for the intervention of the police, would have led to violence.
The election management body had planned its workshop for directors and deputy directors across the country from April 24 to 29 at Prampram.
