Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

AFAG seeks NDC Chairman's prosecution

The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) has formally lodged a complaint with the police asking for the arrest and prosecution of the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Dr. Kwabena Adjei .

The group is accusing Dr. Adjei of making subversive comments against the Judiciary when he called on the Chief Justice to purge the Judiciary of corruption and biases or the party shall purge it for her.

His comments drew lots of criticisms from the general public, the Bench and the Clergy, while many others, including the minority in Parliament, also called for his arrest and prosecution.

On Thursday, leading members of AFAG, a pressure group aligned to the opposition New Patriotic Party, filed a complaint at the Nima Police Station in Accra.

Martin Adjei Mensah, a leading member of AFAG told Joy News' Justice Baidoo that their action is “to ensure that Dr. Kwabena Adjei is brought to book.”

“We find his comments subversive and we think it largely infringes on several aspects of our laws.

“We expect the police to arrest, investigate and possibly prosecute him."

It is not yet clear if the police will act on the matter.
