Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George who was unfortunately assaulted during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by election wants the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to be truthful in disseminating information on the circumstances that led to the disturbances during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
Government officials including National Security Minister and Deputy Information Minister have said that Sam George was at the centre of the incident that triggered the gunfire at La Bawaleshie, leading to several persons getting injured.
But Sam George says the claims are to tarnish his image hence, should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Samuel Nartey George, was assaulted by some security personnel believed to be members of the SWAT team of the Ghana Police Service at the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
Mr. Sam George was seen in a video shouting at the security personnel in a parked vehicle, claiming they wanted to kill a man in his house.
This is connected to the incident which occurred at the La Bawaleshie polling station constituency where some groups of persons were shot by unknown gunmen, disrupting the voting process.
However , the outspoken NDC legislator said allegations that he incited the violence are unfounded and has threaten to take legal actions against the government particularly, Pius Enam Hadzide, Deputy Minister of Information for peddling falsehood against him.
“It appears this is the new line of communication by the ruling government. Let me state without any equivocation that they ought to tell the people the truth. At no point in time did I even move with a driver on the day of election. I drove myself; I was alone not even to talk of moving with 25 motor bikes. That is a lie and I expect better from government.”
