General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has disclosed that management of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) ordered his son to be fired from his private company because they feared he might import weapons in the country to overthrow government.

According to the NDC chief scribe, two of his children have become victims of political victimization because of his affiliation with the NDC and his political stance on issues.

Speaking in an interview monitored by ABC News, Asiedu Nketia said his son, who has been unemployed for the past three years, was sacked from his job because authorities at GPHA blackmailed his former employers to terminate his contract in order to secure a license to operate at the harbour.

He revealed that the private firm his son used to work for at the harbour made him resign because that was the only assurance the firm’s license will be secured.

Narrating how it all happened, Asiedu Nketia said “My son is out of work. He happened to be working with a private company at the harbour. Now that private company operates with a government license, then the management of the GPHA squeezing that private company that unless, until my son is sacked, the license will be withdrawn. So my son had to be sacked. He’s in the house currently.”

He elaborated further that, “the GPHA instructions they gave to that business was Asiedu Nketia’s son is too politically exposed. When he’s here, engaged in clearing of goods and so on, he can import weapons to come and overthrow government so he must be kicked out. My son has been home for more than three years not working.”

The NDC General Secretary said not only has his son suffered political victimization but his daughter has suffered the same fate making her jobless at the moment.

He said “My daughter was also working with another government institution involved in auditing. Because of my children’s moral upbringing, they are very strict when it comes to speaking the truth and remaining with the facts.”

“So she happened to be working with the Internal Audit Department of a government institution. She was sent on an assignment and given instructions to find something to implicate an innocent person for political reasons and she said she cannot do it.”

“So she refused to do it and when she came back from the assignment, they had to take her from one head office to some district branch in Greater Accra and when she went there the manager [at the district branch] said there is no desk for you,” Asiedu Nketia narrated.

Describing it as unfortunate, Asiedu Nketia condemned and called for a stop to such acts.
