Upper East Regional Chair of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Lawyer Anthony Namoo has called on the state to deal with Talibanist Sam George for defying the imposition on the ban on public gathering.
The Member of Parliament of Ningo Prampram, Sam George secured an ex-parte injunction against the meeting in Prampram, which is within his constituency. The injunction is in place from April 24, 2020, to April 27, 2020.
The controversial law-maker led over 100 NDC supporters to the new venue in an attempt to disrupt the meeting, which observers believe would have led to violence without the police presence.
The election management body had planned its workshop for directors and deputy directors across the country from April 24 to 29 at Prampram.
The EC spread the meeting across multiple days so they could adhere to social distancing protocols amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
But Lawyer Anthony Namoo in a sharp reaction wants the law to deal with Hon Sam George for disobeying restrictions on public gathering by leading over 100 NDC supporters to the new venue in an attempt to disrupt the meeting.
” This could have led to violence without the police presence, ” he told Oheneba Nana Asiedu on Wontumi Radio 101.3 and Tv in Kumasi.
Lawyer Anthony Namoo explained that it was wrong for the Ningo Prampram MP to amass people to disrupt a constitutional duty of the Electoral Commission.
