0

The Independent Parliamentary Candidate for Sunyani West Constituency in the Bono region, Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi has petitioned the police command in the region to investigate into the promotion of vigilantism by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman Kwame  Baffoe affectionately called Abronye DC.

The growing trend in the use of guns and militants in the body politics of Sunyani West Constituency and the Bono Region at large is gaining a notorious and gargantuan root and has the potential to give the peace-loving President, H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo a bad image going into the 2020 Presidential Elections and beyond.

In a petition statement dated 7th July 2020 and signed by the Independent Parliamentary Candidate for Sunyani West Constituency Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi has stated that the actions and commissions of the Bono NPP Regional Chairman are deeply sinking the political fortunes of NPP in the region and this will adversely affect both the National and International commitment of H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo who has laid down a bold legal regime to outlaw Vigilantism with deep-seated commitment from all Political Stakeholders in Ghana.

Bernard Oduro emphasized that he will like to for the benefit of future reference give a vivid account of an unfortunate gun-pulling incidence by the Thugs and Vigilante Group of Kwame Baffoe dated July 5th, 2020 (Sunday) at the Chiraa Presby School Registration Center in the Sunyani West Constituency of the Bono Region.

According to him, he Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi together with His Campaign Team scheduled to visit all the Phase 1 Registration Centers in the Sunyani West Constituency. He said, the Team kicked off from Adantia, proceeded to Kwatire, to Odomase, Office of the EC than to Chiraa. At the visitation to the last Registration Center in Chiraa, Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi interacted with the Registrants, EC Officials and the Policeman who was assigned to the Center.

The independent candidate recounted that, just as the entourage of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi was about to leave the premises of the Registration Center, the Thugs of Kwame Baffoe led by He himself then instructed that all the Posters/Stickers on the Vehicles of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi should be removed under the pretext that they have the Symbol and Colours of NPP adding that unfortunately for the Thugs/Hooligans of Kwame Baffoe, the said Posters/Stickers of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi did not contain the approved EC Logo/Symbol of NPP as well as the True Colours of NPP.

Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi however, stressed that for the records has his Posters /Stickers  has the Star + B.O.T + 2020 as His Logo/Symbol and Black + Light Blue + Light Red for His Independent Candidature

“The action of Abronye DC and his Thugs/Hooligans degenerated into verbal exchanges between the entourage of Hon Bernard Oduro Takyi, Voters Registrants and the Thugs/Hooligans of Abronye DC.” He stressed

Bernard confessed that, whilst the confrontation ensued, two of the Hooligans/Thugs of Abronye DC pulled a Live Pistol/Gun and made 3 attempts to shoot at one of Hon Bernard Oduro Takyi’s Team Members and that this was so scary and condemnable.

The Independent candidate then lamented that, as ardent practitioners of Modern Democracy, he will like to put forth the under-noted questions;

  1. Does Kwame Baffoe know that Ghana is under the ambit of the Rule of Law and not the Rule of Thugs/Hooligans?
  2. Does Kwame Baffoe and His Thugs know that the Electoral Commission of Ghana under the CI for Regulating Public Elections is the only mandated body to approve and disapprove the use of Logo or Political Colours for any entity?
  3. Does Kwame Baffoe think He holds the key to vigilantism which is currently outlawed in Ghana?

“We are of the firmest conviction that the 2020 Parliamentary Election of Sunyani West Constituency will not be a by-product of the use of Thugs/Hooligans or pulling of Live Guns, however, the Electorates of Sunyani West are calling for a real change and looking to see a New Member of Parliament with a Clear Sense of Direction and Vision,” Bernard explained.

He noted that It will not be about who can organize Thugs/Hooligans and shoot at Voters Registering Centers, neither will it be about Symbols and Colours but rather a Leader who has shown in his or her actions and commissions that He or She cares for the Ordinary Residents of Sunyani West.

“The actions and track records of Kwame Baffoe as a Regional Chairman are sending the Great New Patriotic Party in the Bono Region into the Bush in Constituencies like Sunyani West, Jaman North, Wenchi and Dormaa West” he stated.

“In this Modern-day politics, resorting to the use of violence requires the immediate attention of the Security Services especially the Ghana Police Service with the utmost mandate to ensure Law & Order.” He further admonished.

Bernard Oduro Sakyi in his concluding remarks respectfully called on the High Office of the Police Command in the Bono Region to as a matter of urgency, commence an investigation into these criminally violent ongoing activities of Abronye DC and his Thugs/Hooligans in the Sunyani West Constituency and the Bono Region at large whom per their background checks is a Vigilante Group based in Wenchi Municipality of the Bono Region.

This he believes will corroborate the fullest commitment of the President of Ghana to ensure that indeed Vigilantism is really outlawed and must be condemned by all well-meaning Ghanaians.

Sunyani – Bono Region

PETITION CALLING FOR THOROUGH CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION: PROMOTION OF VIGILANTISM IN BONO REGION BY MR. KWAME BAFFOE (A.K.A ABRONYE DC), NPP BONO REGIONAL CHAIRMAN

‘’The most dangerous thing in a democracy is to hand over power to the ignorant, miseducated and violent individuals with an egoistic proclivity for more power at all cost’’ – Dr. J.B Danquah (1948)’’. The growing trend in the use of guns and militants in the body politics of Sunyani West Constituency and the Bono Region at large is gaining a notorious and gargantuan root. This will give the peace-loving President, H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo a bad image going into the 2020 Presidential Elections and beyond. The actions and commissions of the Bono NPP Regional Chairman are deeply sinking the political fortunes of NPP in the Bono Region and this will adversely affect both the National and International commitment of H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo who has laid down a bold legal regime to outlaw Vigilantism with deep-seated commitment from all Political Stakeholders in Ghana.

I will like to for the benefit of future reference give a vivid account of an unfortunate gun-pulling incidence by the Thugs and Vigilante Group of Kwame Baffoe dated July 5th, 2020 (Sunday) at the Chiraa Presby School Registration Center in the Sunyani West Constituency of the Bono Region. Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi (Aspiring Independent Parliamentary Candidate, Sunyani West) together with His Campaign Team scheduled to visit all the Phase 1 Registration Centers in the Sunyani West Constituency. The Team kicked off from Adantia, proceeded to Kwatire, to Odomase, Office of the EC than to Chiraa. At the visitation to the last Registration Center in Chiraa, Hon Bernard Oduro Takyi interacted with the Registrants, EC Officials and the Policeman who was assigned to the Center. This was a very healthy and cordial interaction devoid of any rancour. The beauty of democracy is to build a coordinated environment of trusted relationship by all Stakeholders. In the instance of the ongoing Voters Registration Exercise, Political Parties, Independent Candidates (Presidential & Parliamentary), The Security Service, The Citizenry, The Media, International Community, Observer Missions etc have a bigger role towards achieving a Credible Voters Register for the 2020 Elections and beyond.

Just as the entourage of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi was about to leave the premises of the Registration Center, the Thugs of Kwame Baffoe led by He himself then instructed that all the Posters/Stickers on the Vehicles of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi should be removed under the pretext that they have the Symbol and Colours of NPP. Unfortunately for the Thugs/Hooligans of Kwame Baffoe, the said Posters/Stickers of Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi did not contain the approved EC Logo/Symbol of NPP as well as the True Colours of NPP. Hon. Bernard Oduro Takyi for the records has the Star + B.O.T + 2020 as His Logo/Symbol and Black + Light Blue + Light Red for His Independent Candidature.

This degenerated into verbal exchanges between the entourage of Hon Bernard Oduro Takyi, Voters Registrants and the Thugs/Hooligans of Abronye DC. Whilst the confrontation ensued, Two of the Hooligans/Thugs of Abronye DC pulled a Live Pistol/Gun and made 3 attempts to shoot at one of Hon Bernard Oduro Takyi’s Team Members. This was so scary and condemnable. As ardent practitioners of Modern Democracy, we will like to put forth the under-noted questions;

  1. Does Mr. Kwame Baffoe know that Ghana is under the ambit of the Rule of Law and not the Rule of Thugs/Hooligans?
  2. Does Mr. Kwame Baffoe and His Thugs know that the Electoral Commission of Ghana under the CI for Regulating Public Elections is the only mandated body to approve and disapprove the use of Logo or Political Colours for any entity?
