Former Ghanaian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Emmanuel Victor Smith has said his outfit will be putting all arsenals together to ensure they win the 2020 general elections.
According to him, the NDC would win the elections to send the New Patriotic Party (NPP) back to opposition.
“In fact, they’re recruiting and I’m stating on record that they’re still recruiting people without advertising. In the last year alone they’ve recruited about 1500 prison officers, it was never advertised. It was people who come from their constituencies and branches, NPP people who are being recruited,”
“They go to the borstal institute and they’ve done medical checks, they’re given letters appointing them as staff of the prisons of Ghana. And they’re doing the same thing for the military and for the police. My concern is that the intention is to use these ones to police the elections instead of the regular professional men and women of the Ghana Armed Forces and the police.”
“When President Mahama said boot for boot, I am mentioning fire for fire,” he said. “Those guys misbehave we will face them on election day, let the worse happen because we cannot allow one party to design some communist inferior tactics to hold on to power whether the people like it or not, that won’t happen.”
“So they should listen and listen well, you bring chaos into Ghana, the professionals will take over the country and that’s their business. You kick me I kick you, you fire me I fire you back, that’s what I mean so don’t misbehave.”
He said the electorate would vote massively for former President John Dramani Mahama as president in this year’s polls for him to continue his good works as the government had failed to deliver on its promises made to the electorate.
