“I can state category that Kennedy Agyapong is a devil and needs to be clamped down by NPP or they suffer the repercussions of his actions. His actions are disgracing the party and the country as a whole and needs to be stopped”, Azourka fumed.
The regional chairman continued by stating that he will not be surprised if the current happenings in the country by Delta force will eventually be turned to the presidency if their are not stopped.
He further stated that there is the need for the arm forces and the security agencies to stamp their feet down in other to curtail any similar occurrences. He continued by stating that there was no rampage after the 2012 election, neither was there any violence associated with any pressure or vigilante group connected to the NDC party. “There was no violence because we respect our leaders and do not take the law into our own hands”,he declared.
When asked whether his group was established by the NDC party, the regional chairman Azourka, rejected the claim and stated that the group has been in existence before the party’s inception and that the difference between him the Delta force is that he as a person is a regional chairman and not violent. He further stated that there is no vigilante group under NDC’s constitution or structures.
In his conclusion the NDC Regional Chairman stated that this is the time for all well meaning Ghanaians to stand up and condemn the activities of Hon. Kennedy Agyapong and Delta force.
