Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, has issued a bold challenge to the Minister of Home Affairs, Henry Quartey, to release the names of people he claims were sent by NDC MPs for his secret recruitment. Dr Ato Forson criticized the minister for his response to the minority’s concerns, calling his comments “empty, hollow and ridiculous threats”.

Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, in a press conference on May 22, 2024, said the challenge arises from concerns raised by the minority regarding the clandestine recruitment of foot soldiers of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the security services before 2024. general elections.

He highlighted the lack of transparency and equity in the hiring process. “These secret recruitments, which take place behind the public’s back, are characterized by outright nepotism and procedural violations. Instead of the Minister of Home Affairs addressing concerns raised by the NDC Minority Caucus about the serious implications of illegal recruitment for the peace and security of our country, especially with the crucial 2024 elections on the horizon, he chose to peddle lies shameless

“Henry Quartey’s insinuation that members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have benefited from questionable recruitment practices without providing the slightest evidence is a clear attempt to confuse the issues and divert attention. The Minister’s comments, made during interviews with FM stations on May 21, 2024, were an empty, hollow and ridiculous threat aimed at silencing legitimate criticism from the NDC minority. “The minority group stands firm and cannot be silenced, not even through veiled threats and cheap blackmail from the Home Secretary.” He said.

He accused the minister of spreading falsehoods by insinuating that members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have benefited from questionable recruitment practices without providing any evidence to support his claims. “This issue is serious and deserves a substantive response, not a deflection. We therefore challenge the Minister of Home Affairs to publish the names of persons he claims were sent by NDC MPs for secret recruitments. If the Minister does not provide these names, then his statements must be taken as they are; unfounded, ridiculous, frivolous, provocative and false.

“The minority group stands firm and cannot be silenced, even through veiled threats and cheap blackmail from the Minister of Interior,” said Dr Ato Forson.
