The pro-democracy group, Mass Action Committee, is calling for the arrest and prosecution of Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, and some NDC fanatics for attempting to disrupt an internal meeting of the staff of the Electoral Commission at a hotel in Accra.
The controversial MP, together with over 100 NDC activists stormed a hotel in Accra to disrupt a meeting by the EC under the pretext of enforcing a court order.
The Ningo -Prampram MP had secured an ex- parte injunction against the meeting in Prampram, which is within his constituency. However, unknown to Sam George the meeting was moved to a hotel in Accra, rendering his injunction useless.
However, a statement signed by the Convener of the Mass Action Group, Atik Mohammed, said the action by the MP and his supporters posed a danger to the safety of the EC officials.
“It is the view of MAC that, the mob’s presence at the meeting venue and their ensuing actions posed a danger to the safety of the EC officials. We further contend that; these actions could have degenerated into chaos but for the timely arrival of the police and national security officials. To the extent that these actions violate our laws, we demand that the police administration arrest and prosecute the perpetrators. In making this demand, we are minded by the fact that Ghana is ruled by law and not men. To this end, we will be petitioning the Inspector General of Police to cause an investigation to be conducted into the matter and those found culpable dealt with according to law,” the statement said.
