The Member of Parliament for the Ningo-Prampram Constituency, Samuel Nartey George wants the Ghana Police Service to evacuate the premises of the National Democratic Congress Presidential Candidate, John Dramani Mahama.
According to reports, some sympathizers and National Democratic Congress had planned a road block leading to the house of the former president after the media reported that the Ghana Peace Council was going to convince the opposition to concede defeat in the election.
But when police personnel got to the house of the NDC flagbearer, they were denied access to the building and were informed that John Mahama had stepped out.
Briefing journalists shortly after a confrontation with personnel from the Ghana Police Service, Hon. Sam George noted that the former President has not requested for the presence of Ghana Police.
“I just arrived and had a confrontation with the police,” Sam George told TV3.
He added, “We’ve tried to de-escalate the situation we don’t need the police. They are needed for other things but John Mahama does not need them.”
With regards to the various reports of road blockage, he said, “As you can see, these are vehicles passing so I don’t see any blockage.”
According to the MP-elect, the presence of the police “is going to escalate the situation we cannot be intimidated.”
