The Member of Parliament for Nsawam Aduagyir, Annor Dompreh is calling for the arrest of persons believed to be members of the New Patriotic Party who are trying to use illegal means to take over government establishments.

The NPP MP maintained that the president was elected by and for the people of Ghana, which means he is not the president for a selected few.

Annor Dompreh speaking on Onua FM morning show, Yen Nsempa, urged the leadership of the New Patriotic Party to talk to the youth of the party to desist from the act.

According to him, government business is by appointment and not by force seizure of state institutions.

“If they needed jobs, it has to be applied for,” he asserted.

Since President Akufo-Addo assumed office, there have been several reports of some identified and unidentified members of the NPP establishing their intention to take over state institutions. Some went to the Passport Office in Tema, some tollbooths in the country as well as NHIS offices. There is currently power struggle between the executives and youth of Asuogyaman as to who takes charge of the Adome Bridge.

Mr. Annor Dompreh however suspects the attacks may be perpetuated by persons who are not members of the NPP, trying to paint a bad image for the party.

He therefore charged the security agencies to investigate and bring the perpetrators to book.

The MP has also asked youth of the party to have confidence in the leadership, adding, “they should also understand that it wasn’t their vote alone which made the victory of the elephant party”.

Meanwhile,  Okyere Osubu Fiifi, an NPP youth activist in the Asuogyaman area has told host of Onua FM’s morning show Bright Akwasi Asempa that they want to take over the Adome Bridge because they are “hungry for jobs”.
