A deputy National Organizer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Akamba has dared the elements in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to produce the Ghanaian passports they claimed the then NDC government led by John Dramani Mahama issued to the GITMO two.
According to him, the NPP should produce the Ghanaian passports that were issued for the GITMO two fellows as they claim.
He said if the NPP is serious about living up to its claims of the two Yemenis being a threat to the security of the nation, they should send them back to where they hail from.
He challenged the president to live his words in opposition by the returning the two Guantamo Bay suspects who were arrested by the United States of America on suspicion terrorism in Yemen.
If the president says he is against Ghana admitting the two into the country he should take steps to revoke their refugee status if they have any.
According to him, this clearly shows the president is not against the admission of GITMO two into the country as he (president) made Ghanaians to believe during the 20116 electioneering campaign.
He argued that the president has tendency as the then Attorney-General and Minister of Justice under the first NPP’s administration led by John Agyekum Kufour to revoke a Constitutional provision that demanded for the ex-president Jerry John Rawlings to be admitted to the Very Very Important Person’s (VVIP’s) lounge at the Kotoka International Airport any time he is traveling outside.
Even provisions that were clearly spell out in the 1992 Constitution was revoked by the president and why not the matter of revocation of a refugee status of the GITMO two.
This should be the easiest to have been done by the president since he was against the admission of the two into the country especially when their time has elapsed in the country.
