Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), issued a resounding call to action against the misuse of state power during a press briefing held urgently at the party’s headquarters on June 8. With an air of urgency and importance, Nketia underscored the NDC’s unwavering commitment to upholding freedom for all Ghanaians, stressing that the laws must be enforced impartially.

This imperative declaration followed the recent release of Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor, the NDC’s parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya East, who was detained by police alongside two others. The trio’s arrest near the Electoral Commission (EC) Office at Ofankor, Central Region, was linked to a stabbing incident involving the son of Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Mavis Hawa Koomson.

Notably, a firearm was discovered in their possession during the apprehension, although Naa Koryoo Okunor clarified that it was legally registered and intended solely for self-defense. Asiedu Nketia urged the Ghana Police Service to act swiftly and judiciously in addressing such matters, particularly with the approaching 2024 elections heightening tensions.
