The Minority in Parliament has called for the President to relinquish his office immediately following the investigations of JoyFM’s Manasseh Azure expose` which revealed some group of militias believe to be backed by government who were undergoing training at the Christianborg Castle.
According to the Parliamentarians Akufo-Addo has lost all moral right to occupy the high office after evidence suggests his backings in the operations of a private militia, De-Eye, at the Christiansborg Castle at Osu; the seat of government annex.
“We insist that Nana Akufo-Addo must resign as President of the Republic of Ghana with immediate effect,” Deputy Minority Leader, James Avedzi said with cheers from his colleagues while addressing the media in Parliament Friday morning.
The MPs also want the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to carry out a swoop to arrest the members and leaders of De-Eye group, which owes allegiance to the governing NPP. On Thursday, Joy News premiered the documentary, “Militia in the heart of the nation.”
A number of the group members train at the Christiansborg Castle despite attempts by the National Security to evict them. The group’s responsibility is to provide security for the officials of the NPP and serve the same purpose at party events.
