Kwame Zu is the Ashanti Regional Secretary for the NDC,
The New patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region has called on the Ghana Police Service to, as a matter of urgency, arrest the Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for making “treasonable” comments.
The NPP says the Regional Chairman of the NDC, Augustus Nana Akwasi, committed a treasonable offense by addressing defeated presidential candidate, former president John Mahama as “the president-elect”.
Ashanti Regional Secretary for the NDC Kwame Zu had earlier signed a letter announcing the arrival of the former president in the Ashanti Region with the caption “President-elect” contrary to the outcome of the just-ended election.
The NDC Regional Chairman confirmed the origin of the letter and also reiterated on live radio in an interview with Kofi Asante Ennin on GhanAkoma: “Yes, I signed the letter”.
However, First Vice Chairman of NPP in Ashanti Region Kwabena Nsenkyire says the leadership of NDC in the region have been inciting their followers since the declaration of the December 7 election results with their worse being the description of the former president as “the president-elect”.
Mr Nsenkyire, who joined the discussion, urged the security agencies to do the needful by arresting the NDC leader for such treasonable comments.
