The Minority in Parliament has accused government of wrongfully recruiting footsoldiers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) into the various security services to serve the cause of the party in the 2024 General Election.

Addressing the media on Monday, May 20, Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said “The NPP government again has illegally and fraudulently given out 30 slots to all NPP Parliamentary candidates across the country for the recruitment into the security services.”

According to him, the recruitment into the Police Service, Immigration Service, Fire Service, Ghana Army, Navy, and Air Force is a calculated attempt by the government to compromise the 2024 general election in favour of the NPP.

“The recruitment of NPP foot soldiers into the security services especially in this election year is a calculated attempt to compromise the elections given that the loyalty of the new recruits in the event that they are deployed will be to the ruling NPP and not to the state as it’s required of all security personnel,” Dr. Ato Forson said.

In his address to the media, the Minority Leader warned that supporters of the NDC are ready to face off with the NPP footsoldiers to resist any attempt by the government to compromise the integrity of the December 7 polls.

“We wish to remind President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Alhaji Bawumia that they will not have their way this time regardless of whatever manoeuvrings that they will roll out in the 2024 elections.

“We will resist these shenanigans with all our might and all our strength. Our members, supporters and sympathisers will not just defend themselves against unlawful attacks by NPP thugs in uniforms, we shall hold these NPP hoodlums personally responsible for their unlawful violations of the laws of Ghana and the legitimate rights of our people. It is in the interest of the NPP footsoldiers to act lawfully or face the full consequences of their actions and the wrath of our supporters,” Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson warned.
