Savannah Region NDC Wing Sympathizes With Jailed Chief
The Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress in the Savannah Region has expressed their solidarity and candour to the family of Chief Dinipewura Alhaji Osman Salifu Mimin who was among three others convicted for causing financial loss to the state yesterday.
According to its Chairman Alhaji Inusah Mahama they were dismayed by the decision of the Accra High Court: "The Youth Wing was shocked and pained by this ruling of the Accra High Court on a case which is pending before the Appeals court. We were left with no option than to conclude that this ruling was politically motivated and part of the scheme of the Nana Addo’s NPP government to engage in political persuasions and with-hunting."
The Accra High Court yesterday sentenced three former government appointees: William Mathew Tetteh, Eugene Baffoe Bonnie, and Alhaji Osman Salifu unanimously to a total of 16 years imprisonment for causing financial loss to the state by 5_ 2.
But since the passing of the judgment, many individuals have expressed their opinions about the judgment.
The NDC Youth Wing Chairman indicated that a new government under Ex-President John Dramani Mahama will set up investigations into any allegation of corruption in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo's government in the country if NDC wins the 2020 polls.
"But we want to serve a notice to the government of Nana Addo that we shall not be intimidated with these persecutions and we shall ensure that the next John Mahama’s government will resume full-scale investigations and prosecutions into all the corruption and broad day stealing the Nana Addo’s government and its appointees are engaged in on daily bases."
He further reiterated the party's commitment to the family of the former Deputy National Security Coordinator under the erstwhile John Mahama administration
"We will stay and pray with our revered chief Osman and his family in these trying times. We will stay strong behind him and the others. But we will call for the prosecution of all those who are engaged in any wrongdoings in this NPP government even if those people were freshly installed Paramount chiefs in any Traditional Area in any part of this country."
