MILLS MEN FIGHT TSIKATA
Mr Porsper Tao Tsikata, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the yet to be established security company called Mazze Security Group of companies is on a warpath with the President, Prof. John Evans Atta-Mills and some party stalwarts at the office of the President for seizing his license to operate a security company in the country.
Sources say some staffers at the office of the President are strongly against Mr Tsikata’s establishment of a private security company in the country simply because of the sophisticated state of the art security equipments he has imported into the country.
Some officials at the office of the President have condemned Tsikata’s yet unborn security company, claiming that it would pose a threat to national security since his equipments are much more sophisticated than that of national security.
Mr Tsikata who has been mentioned as one of the key financiers of Prof. Mills’ 2008 general elections campaign is being harassed and unnecessarily vilified by some National Security elements as pressure is being brought to bear on him to revoke his decision of operating a security company.
A source close to Mr Tsikata told the New Crusading Guide that some security officials stormed the house and the offices of Mr Tsikata around IPS road to ransack some of his equipment and also harassed his kids and house help.According to sources, the man who was said to be in charge of President Mills’ security in the run up to the Tain elections in the Brong Ahafo Region is now facing stiff opposition from his own party.
The source hinted that Mr Tsikata who is now hospitalised has all his cell phones, e-mails tapped and bank accounts frozen by the NDC bigwigs who are bent on monitoring his business plans. The New Crusading Guide can report that the fates of some 200 young men who were recently recruited by Mazze Security and were undergoing training at East Legon in Accra are in a balance as signals points to high indications that the company may never see the light of day.Meanwhile, the New Crusading Guide can confirm that some National Democratic Congress (NDC) top shots who are contesting for various position in the party have called on him for monetary supports for their campaign.
