The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is calling for the resignation of the National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah following claims of the manhandling of journalists associated with ModernGhana.com, an online news portal by operatives of the National Security.
According to the party, it is a shame that President Akufo-Addo is presiding over these ‘barbaric attacks’ on press freedom and extreme human right violations.
The NDC has expressed its deepest concern over the deteriorating press freedom under President Akufo-Addo.
The party also raised concerns over the deafening silence of the president on this and similar acts.
“The NDC hereby calls on Albert Kan Dapaah to immediately resign as National Security Minister or be suspended by the President, to allow for a full-scale investigation into allegations of torture of the journalists. We submit that all those found culpable must be dealt with in accordance with the law.”
