The largest opposition NDC has expelled from the party with immediate effect, the Chairman of the Ayawaso North Constituency, Mr Tahiru Ahmed for what the party described as expelled from the party with immediate effect for “breaching article 46 (8) of our party’s constitution.”
In a press statement signed by the NDC Greater Accra Regional Secretary, Theophilus Tetteh Chaie, “All party property in his possession should be handed over to the Vice-chairman of the Constituency to act.”
The action of the Party is coming early less than 24hours after the National Vice Chairman of the NDC, Alhaji Said Sinare was invited and charged for Court by the Ghana Police Service over allegations that he – Alhaji Sinare was distributing firearms to youth in the Ayawaso North Constituency to cause mayhem during the December 7, 2020 general elections.
Alhaji Said Sinare was invited by the police after the NDC Constituency Chairman for Ayawaso North, Ahmed Tahiru reportedly confessed to the police that Sinare had supplied guns to some youth to cause chaos during the upcoming December 7 general elections.
Mr Tahiru Ahmed is said to have presented an AK-47 and a pump-action gun to the police as evidence of the arms being distributed by the NDC Vice-Chairman to the youth to foment trouble.
Alhaji Sinare, however, denied culpability in an alleged plot to arm people with weapons to cause chaos during the December 2020 polls whiles admitting that the pump-action gun belongs to him and has licence covering adding that the gun has got missing for which he has files complaint at the Cantonment Police.
“He [Ahmed Tahiru] is the Ayawaso North constituency chairman. He is my boy and I groomed him. He is my employee, and he has been working for me for the past 8 years and I fired him exactly about five weeks ago because of so many reasons. That blackmail will never work because I am a very clean person with a good track record. I am not going to cause mayhem anywhere, I have been preaching peace everywhere I go,” he said.
“I don’t own an AK-47. I don’t even know where this guy got the AK-47 but the pump-action gun is my pump-action gun that has been registered. I reported to the police that my pump-action gun has been missing some few months back. I have got an extract of that report so at the end of the day I will be cleared because that guy, that constituency chairman must be caught, and they must put him behind bars, and they must find out from him how he got the AK-47,” he added.
The Police has since dropped the case against Alhaji Said Sinare
