The Minority in Parliament is calling for a swift investigation into claims that the government is preparing mercenaries and thugs in the Jubilee House in advance of the elections in 2024.

Ghanaian TV personality Kelvin Tailor, who is living in the US, made the initial claim and named specific people engaged at the presidency.

Speaking to the media in parliament, Minority Spokesperson on Security James Agalga claimed that several events in the security system left a lot to be desired and support Kelvin Tailor’s assertions.

To calm public concerns, the Builsa North MP demanded an investigation into the accusation.
Dominic Nitiwul, the minister of defense, and Ambrose Dery, the minister of the interior, both promptly replied to the charge by disputing the assertions of the minority.

According to Nitiwul, the administration would not even consider taking the security risk of hosting thugs at the Presidency, regardless of any potential political advantage.

Assuring that President Akufo-Addo won’t do anything to undermine national security, he acknowledged that, given the circumstances in which the country finds itself, there is increased security at the Presidency, but that this has nothing to do with training thugs.

On his part, Ambrose Dery fiercely refuted these claims, stating that the individual whose name was stated by Kelvin Tailor is really a police officer who has been assigned to the president as part of a security detail.
No matter whatever party wins the polls, President Akufo-Addo will cede office in 2025, Ambrose Dery promised.
