National Organizer for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has revealed on Citi Breakfast Show that NDC branded Mahindra vehicles being speculated to belong to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) but rebranded to support the NDC’s campaign ahead of the November elections is false.
When asked whether the arrest of Managing Director of Marbles and Granites, Dr. Edmund Ayo Ani was legal or not he answered that, we shouldn’t limit the whole discussion to just taking of a picture, the mere fact that some people are spreading false news on social media that his political party, the NDC has diverted state vehicles meant for state institutions for their campaign is his major concern because these allegations are false.
‘ The vehicles belong to NDC and as to whether the arrest of the Managing Director of the quarry company, Marbles and Granites for allegedly circulating pictures of the vehicles is legal or illegal will be determined by the court and not the radio station ” he argued
In a seperate chat with GhanaPoliticsOnline.Com, He added that, “state vehicles use to have GV registration numbers, it was the NPP who came to power to change that principles, where they made state vehicles have same numbers with private vehicles, but when NDC came back to power we reverse to giving state vehicle different number plate to differentiate between state cars and private cars, which is a strong decision that no Government who wants to divert Government vehicles will take.”
On Saturday, the Managing Director of Marbles and Granites, a quarry company was arrested for allegedly circulating pictures of the vehicles, which were parked in a yard belonging to the National Security Adviser.
The narrative on the pictures which went viral on social media claimed that the vehicles belonged to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), but were being rebranded to support NDC’s campaign ahead of the November elections.
Dr. Edmund Ayo Ani, who was arrested on the orders of the National Security Adviser, was subsequently released by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) on Sunday
