... As he maintains Kufuor wants him dead THE MEMBER OF Parliament for Wench West, Hon. Johnson Aseidu Nketia, otherwise known as General Mosquito, has accused the Police Administration of extreme exhibition of incompetence and inefficiency in investigating matters involving the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government against individuals in the country.

He noted that following the silence of the NPP government over the newspaper publications that President John Agyekum Kufuor wanted to kill him, he was inclined to believe that the alleged plot was true.

He said Ghana's police was efficient and effective in combating crime but not issues pertaining to the presidency, adding that he felt it was waste of time therefore to inform the Police about the alleged threat on his life.

Hon Aseidu Nketia who was speaking to a Kumasi-based FOX FM radio station said it was within the jurisdiction of the police to initiate investigations into the matter to ascertain the truth in it, adding that nothing as such had been done by the police.

He maintained that the security agencies should have by now contacted the Editor who published the story demanding documents to facilitate the investigations in the matter.

According to him, since such actions had not been initiated by the police, the only option for him was to pray for God's protection and inform the public about the Kufuor administration's intention to kill him.

He however alleged that the plot to kill him and other opposition members in parliament who had been identified as frequent critics of the NPP government's policies would not terminate his political career adding “I will prefer to die for a good purpose since everybody will die”.

Hon. Aseidu questioned why he has been fingered out from the vast number of government critics in the country. He said the editors who published the story can provide the right answer.

General Mosquito, who sounded optimistic about retaining his seat in Parliament in this year's parliamentary elections, said the NPP had already organised 40 boys to lynch him in a radio station.
