In a press statement issued by the group and copied to News Ghana, they also questioned the seriousness of the “so called security experts” who keep quiet when atrocities are committed against members of opposition parties but wake up from their sleep when opposition parties takes steps to secure and protect themselves.
The statement said, “The current politicisation of our security services in particular the police and the internal security organisation the Bureau of National Investigations to serve the interests of the ruling National Democratic Congress rather than the National Interest is a dangerous development and will definitely undermine the peace and stability of the nation.”
They however disagreed with Dr Kwesi Aning of the Kofi Annan Peacekeeping Centre and Mr Emmanuel Bombande of the West African Network for Peace building on their position that providing and protecting oneself from harm using a private source is improper.
They noted that, “In 2007 TheNational Democratic Congress brought in security advisors from Libya and Cubato train members of the JUNE 4TH Movement and the defunct Peoples Militia now rebranded into the United Cadres Front. These two groups were part of the security detail for the late professor John Evans Atta Mills. This was organised by the late Rear Admiral(rtd)Owusu Ansah, Head of Security for the NDC’S 2008 Campaign .In 2008 Azorka Boys led by the current NDC Northern Regional Chairman Sofo Azorka which still operational despite several calls for it to be disbanded, were given security and close protection training in Bawku under the watchful eyes of Colonel (Rtd) Pascal Ameyoh of the Afidava Security Insitute based in Togo.”
‘… This was organised by Yaw Boateng Gyan,the former National Organiser . We did not hear any complaints from Dr Anning and Emmanuel Bombande when these acts took place and neither was anybody harassed or arrested or had the human rights sabotaged.”
Members of the group also noted that Dr Kwesi Anning and Emmanuel Bombande only come out to make soundbites only in election year, to put the ruling party in a good light and support the subversion of the constitution by President John Dramani Mahama and the security agencies, adding that “These two experts support the bringing of terrorists and Al-Qaida operatives from Guatanamo Bay to be housed and fed millions of cedis in Ghana at the expense of the poor Ghanaian taxpayer yet they will make noise on the desire of innocent political leaders to do more to secure and protect themselves from harm and be accountable to their supporters and Ghanaians.”
