Richard Ahiabgah, National Communications Director of the NPP, has revealed that the CSU student who was allegedly assaulted by suspected National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters has officially lodged a complaint with the Ashanti Regional Police Command.

In a press conference on Monday, he condemned the act committed against the student.

He said the case has already been reported to the Ashanti Regional Police Command, while the PNP is closely monitoring until the perpetrators are brought to justice.

During a public lecture by former President John Dramani Mahama at the CSU on Wednesday, Nana Boakye, a member of the NPP student wing, responded with “Mahama will lose” to a comment about Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the NPP flag bearer.

He was later allegedly assaulted by suspected NDC supporters who were in the vicinity.

But reacting to the student’s conduct, Richard Ahiagbah said Nana Boakye did nothing wrong with the comment he made.

According to him, the TESCON member was only expressing his fundamental human right which allows all Ghanaians freedom of expression and thought.

“The University invited all students to join the public lecture without discrimination. As the fundamental human right in our constitution allows everyone to express their views, President Mahama expressed his views during the lecture. He even mocked our standard bearer. and received applause.”

“His opinion was to mock our flag bearer, and Nana Boakye equally expressed his opinion by saying: ‘Mahama will lose’. Why did he have to attack someone for equally exercising his fundamental human rights as a Ghanaian? Or would it have been normal for the NPP Will he also attack the former president for mocking our standard bearer? Return? We respect peace and that is why we want the police to guarantee that justice is done,” he stated.

The national director of communications, however, wants the police to accelerate action by bringing perpetrators to justice to serve as a deterrent to others.
