A Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress,(NDC) Koku Anyidoho has dismissed reports that claims he’s said the party will not proceed to the courts to support any corrupt official of the erstwhile Mahama administration, who may be facing prosecution for alleged corruption.
Some online portals have quoted the NDC scribe as saying the party will not storm the court to solidarize with the former government officials, adding that the relatives and friends of those officials can do that but not the entire party and its supporters.
This comment which is now in contention directly contradicts an earlier call by former President Mahama on party supporters to solidarise with members charged with any offences.
Speaking at the 31st December Revolution Anniversary held in the Volta Regional capital, Ho recently, he said, “we must be prepared to face any prosecution that this government throws at us, but we must do so with commitment and solidarity.
“Solidarity with our colleagues who may fall foul of the law because the law says you are innocent until proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.”
But Mr. Anyidoho clarifying issues on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM Thursday, said he doesn’t know any NDC former government appointee to be corrupt for him to have said such a person will not have support from the party when he/she is being prosecuted.
“We as a party will solidarize with our people, we’ll not buy into the propaganda of the NPP. The NPP will not use the courts to divert our attention from our re-organization exercise.”
