A Deputy Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahene, has confirmed that a leaked audio recordings in which the National Chairman of the umbrella family, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, is heard giving account of what necessitated his call for the party to withdraw from the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election is indeed the voice of the party’s chair.
However, he said some of the aspects of the audio has been doctored and therefore cannot vouch for its entire authenticity.
He told Accra-based Adom FM, Wednesday, that the leaked audio was recorded by somebody he couldn’t identify except to describe that person as a nation wrecker who does not have the interest of Ghana at heart.
He also shied away from disclosing to the listeners of the local radio the exact date the said meeting in which Chairman Ofosu Ampofo was said to have made those hateful comments.
The said meeting, he added, is a regular meeting being party communicators which takes place once every week and which Chairman Ofosu Ampofo joined to address them on happenings in the country.
“Yes the meeting was organized by our communicators. We meet once every week and somebody infiltrated our camp and recorded the voice of our chairman, Ofosu Ampofo. Last week, Kennedy Agyapong played some aspects of the recorded audio of the same meeting. But this will not discourage us from speaking and fighting against what is happening is the country. Sammy Gyamfi, Ako Gunn and myself are leaders of the party’s communication team”, he noted.
According to him, Chairman Ofosu Ampofo only stormed the meeting to advise and motivate the party communicators that despite the country being in dark days, they shouldn’t be worried since God will see them through for the NDC to come to power.
“He told us that we will experience temptation and that some will lose our lives, others will be injured while some will be persecuted. However, he told us to remain resolute and work for mother Ghana. So, we are happy as a party and fully supports whatever Chairman Ofosu Ampofo said.”
