I will feed ex-Gitmo prisoners if… Akua Donkor

Founder of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) says she is ready to accommodate the ex-Guantanamo Bay prisoners at her home if she is asked to do so by the Mahama administration.

According to Akua Donkor, the presence of Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby in the country will not pose any threat to Ghanaians as claimed by a majority of the citizenry.

“Bring the Gitmo detainees to my home, I will stay with them and take good care of them. I will even feed them.

“These people do not pose any threat at all and so I don’t understand why Ghanaians and other bishops are raising their voices at government” she asserted.

Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby will be living in the country for the next two years following an agreement between Ghana and the US.

Government has been assuring Ghanaians the two ex-detainees of Yemeni origin pose no threat to the country as their activities will be closely monitored.

Their arrival has sparked massive public outcry with many, including notable religious groups calling for their rejection.

But the calls will not amount to much, according to Akua Donkor, because the deal has already been sealed.

She called on Christian groups and other religious bodies who have kicked against the issue to put a stop to their calls and show compassion.
