The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Former President John Dramani Mahama was the keynote speaker for Christian Service University’s 50th anniversary in Kumasi. Delivering his lecture, John Maham jabbed Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia by describing his campaign trail as a “concert party”. A student at the gathering who is reportedly the organizer of pro-NPP group on the university campus, TESCON, wasn’t pleased with the statement.

Narrating the incidence to the media, the second year student of the university whose name is Nana Boakye said “I also responded and said, ‘Mahama wo boa’ na wo b3 wi’ [Meaning Mahama you’re lying, you will lose]. Later on, I saw a macho man who approached me and gave me a warning that I should be careful. So, I also asked him ‘What have I done’? And the moment I asked him the question, he came directly and slapped me in front of the former President. So on our way out of the auditorium, when we got to the main entrance of the auditorium, I heard another slap. Out of that, I was not able to see anything, and I also saw one guy who held my hand backwards, and they started beating me in my stomach, my head and stuff like that.”

 An attempt to rescue him proved futile, as some irate NDC affiliates broke into an office where he was kept. Police later intervened and rescued the student, but it is unclear whether the student received medical attention. The victim has yet to file a complaint to the Police.

The Ashanti Regional NPP is appalled by the incident and has called out the violent act of the NDC violent group. The National Youth Wing of the NPP has called out the flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama to apologize to the victim.

The Ato Forson Ambulance trial in court has brought a media frenzy causing the two leading political parties in Ghana, NPP and NDC  to organize press conferences. The NDC organized a press conference and played a recording which alleged the Attorney General, Godfred Dame ‘coerced’ the third accused, Richard Jakpa of which the NPP refuted in their counter press conference.

Asiedu Nketiah addressing the media.

In response, the NPP claimed the AG in no way tried to “coerce” the third accused but rather he has been strong in refusing the NDC’s plea to discontinue the case. The Chairman, Legal and Constitutional Committee for NPP, Frank Davies, in the press conference said there has been numerous attempts to mount pressure on the AG “from every angle including the Former President Mahama, the leadership of the minority in parliament, clergy, business friends of Ato Forson etc”.

Frank Davies addressing the media.

Speaking at the press conference, Frank Davies said “indeed, former president Mahama specifically maintained the discontinuance of the Ambulance Trial as a condition to get members of the minority in Parliament to agree to the recent recall of parliament and has on several other occasions, stated it as a condition for the cooperation of the minority in parliament”.

He further said the calls for the Attorney General to resign is “unwarranted and misplaced and the attorney general will continue to remain witty, resolute and focused in the delivery of his work”.
