The Minority in Parliament has accused the government of illegally recruiting NPP foot soldiers into the security services ahead of the 2024 general elections.

The caucus alleged that all NPP Parliamentary Candidates have been offered 30 slots for recruitment into the various security services in a calculated attempt to compromise the December polls.

The Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, conveyed these concerns during a press briefing, asserting that any unauthorised actions by these recruits, referred to as NPP thugs in uniform, would be met with strong resistance from National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters.

“It is unacceptable that the government continues to put cheap partisan considerations ahead of the overall peace, security and stability of our country in the run-up to the 2024 elections,” he stated.

Dr Ato Forson added that any strategy by the government to skew the 2024 elections in their favour would not succeed, emphasising that the NDC is prepared to counter such manoeuvres.

“We wish to remind President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Alhaji Bawumia that they will not have their way this time regardless of whatever manoeuvrings that they will roll out in the 2024 elections.

“We will resist these shenanigans with all our might. Our members, supporters and sympathisers will not just defend themselves against unlawful attacks by NPP thugs in uniforms, we shall hold these NPP hoodlums personally responsible for their unlawful violations of the laws of Ghana and the legitimate rights of our people.

“It is in the interest of the NPP footsoldiers to act lawfully or face the full consequences of their actions and the wrath of our supporters,” he stated.
