Anthony KarboAnthony Karbo Opens Up On Allegations To Disrupt Elections With Mercenaries

23 October 2012

National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anthony Abaayifa Karbo, who stands accused of planning to use mercenaries “from some neighbouring West African countries and beyond to ‘instigate’ violence during the elections,” has officially commented on the allegations.

The NPP activist says the allegations are "a complete fabrication and concoction".

A youth group under the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) called Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP), on Monday released a secret tape recording with the voice purported to be that of the NPP activist allegedly planning to disrupt the December polls by engaging the services of mercenaries described as "bad boys" from Togo, Liberia, Nigeria and Libya.

At a press conference addressed by the Convener of the group, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, called on “all Ghanaians, Civil Society Groups, Religious Leaders and members of Moral Society" to "condemn in no uncertain terms this dastardly attempt to undermine the peace and tranquility which has prevailed in Ghana all these years.”

But in a strongly worded statement, the NPP National Youth Organiser stridently denied the allegations claiming he had not had "any meeting with a person or group of persons where the agenda of that meeting is to destabilize this country".

Karbo, who wondered whether the false tape was fabricated to shut him up for his recent exposé on President John Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama’s failure to repay the over GH¢50 million debt owed to Merchant Bank, challenged the group to "confirm where this meeting was held, who were the people in the meeting and what the agenda was".

The NPP Parliamentary candidate for newly-created Lawra constituency, who demanded an apology from RAP, vowed to exposed the masterminds of the diabolical act.

"I demand an unqualified apology from this group situated deep in the partisan stable of the NDC and dedicated to publishing falsehoods about the New Patriotic Party...I will make sure the perpetrators behind this disgraceful scheme are unveiled. This gutter politics to score cheap votes must not be tolerated in our beautiful democracy," Anthony Karbo said.

STATEMENT

ANTHONY ABAAYIFA KARBO REACTS TO LATEST NDC AUDIO CONCOCTION…..IT IS NOT ME.

Felix Kwakye OfosuMy attention has been drawn to an audio tape generated and is currently being circulated by a pro-NDC group, Research and Advocacy Platform, in which a voice planning chaos and mayhem in the run-up to the December general election is being attributed to me.

I would like to take this opportunity to expressly state that although the voice on the tape sounds like mine; it is not me. This is a complete fabrication and concoction. I have not had any meeting with a person or group of persons where the agenda of that meeting is to destabilize this country. I challenge the group to confirm where this meeting was held, who were the people in the meeting and what the agenda was.

It is not surprising that this said audio tape is emanating from a political party with a propaganda desk which is remarkable for its disingenuity, disregard for the truth, and its unrepentant penchant for fanning ethnic and tribal sentiments. It is an audio tape baked in the dilapidating kitchen of falsehood and served on the cracked plate of malicious assassination of character.

This tape can only be a desperate attempt at political equalization following the recent expose of a tape having the NDC National organizer, and a presidential staffer at the seat of Government, admit to having planned and executed criminal activities in the past and planning such activities in the run-up to the December polls using state funds provided by the minister of finance, Dr. Duffuor and under the protection and cover of the National Security Coordinator, Lt. Col. Gbevlo-Lartey. What is more criminal and diabolical than that? What is most distressing is the NDC's shameless and consistent use of tribal discord to achieve its political aims. Ghanaians will and must not buy into that disgraceful strategy this crucial election year. Ghana is a country which belongs to all of the ethnic groups that constitute this great country of ours.

Or, is this false tape fabricated to shut me up for my recent exposé on President John Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama’s failure to repay the over GH¢50 million debt owed to Merchant Bank, or, are they afraid of my rising popularity in the Lawra constituency as a candidate of the NPP, a seat I am destined to win come December.

The content of the tape clearly shows it is an attempt to create a diversion from the activities of the NDC, as they are the party planning mayhem and chaos in the upcoming elections. This is/was evident in the violence unleashed by the NDC during the biometric voter registration exercise, the by-elections conducted in Atiwa, Akwatia, Cherponi, the gruesome murder of three NPP activists in Agbogbloshie and the Tamale arson attacks in 2009. The content also confirms Yaw Boateng Gyan’s (infamous tape) grand scheme to tag the NPP as a violent party.

I demand an unqualified apology from this group situated deep in the partisan stable of the NDC and dedicated to publishing falsehoods about the New Patriotic Party.

I also appeal to the general public to, once again, ignore this false tape for what it is - an obvious concoction. Ghanaians want practical remedies to the ailing Better Ghana Agenda and not practical, ugly jokes thrown in the public arena in the forlorn hope of diverting attention from the crass incompetence, economic hardships and growing unemployment being endured under this current administration.

I will make sure the perpetuators behind this disgraceful scheme are unveiled. This gutter politics to score cheap votes must not be tolerated in our beautiful democracy.

I also urge the NDC to join the NPP in the debate and battle of ideas, policies and programs aimed at moving this country forward: Ghanaians deserve the best.

……Signed……

Anthony Abaayifa Karbo

NPP Parliamentary Candidate, Lawra.
