The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has described the arrest warrant issued for Nana Appiah Mensah as fake.
According to Asiedu Nketia, the document was just part of government’s plan to cover up the relationship between Nana Appiah Mensah and President Akufo-Addo.
He said there was no way a warrant would be issued in the name of the President, hence the document was fake and therefore should be disregarded.
“Have you heard any warrant issued in the name of President, how the President comes in. They have intentionally come up with a warrant and a circuit court stamp just to fool us.
No circuit judge will command you in the name of the President” Aseidu Nketia said. Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday, the NDC chief scribe stated the NDC had records to show that President Akufo-Addo knows NAM 1 and had been dealing with him and Kwasi Nyantakyi.
“He cannot dissociate himself from these two people. I have records of how President Akufo-Addo was using Kwasi Nyantakyi for his dealings.” General mosquito opined.
