Political parties express divergent views on deployment of military in dispersing protesters

Some Political Parties have been sharing their views on the deployment of the military to disperse protesters at Ejura following the death of Ibrahim Mohammed, a member of the #FixTheCountry movement.

While some say it was wrong to deploy the military looking at the excesses, others are of the view they should have maintained the police.

Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen is unhappy with the politicisation of the issue. He told GBC NEWS that the deployment of the military to the area is not wrong.

Director of Communications of the LPG, Samuel Owusu-Afriyie, shared similar sentiments. He said although the military had the right to be there, their conduct was unacceptable.

Meanwhile, the NDC, PPP and APC say they are against the deployment of the military to Ejura to disperse the protestors.

Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boama Otokunor, described the deployment as bizarre. He called for the resignation of the Defense Minister as well as the Minister of the Interior and the IGP.

Director of Communications of the PPP, Felix Mantey, raised a number of questions, adding that, the Minister of Defense should be made to answer to Parliament.

Director of Communications of APC, Francis Ansah Tawiah, described the military deployment as needless and unfortunate.
