The National Democratic Congress has advised party communicators to desist from speaking on the controversial Airbus scandal after the Office of Special Prosecutor invited some persons to help with ongoing investigations.

The said persons were invited by the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to answer questions relating to their roles in an alleged act of bribery and other offenses in government’s acquisition of three aircraft from Airbus. The four individuals are believed to be Samuel Mahama; a brother of former President John Dramani Mahama and three others, who are British nationals.

In a statement signed by the General Secretary of the party, Asiedu Nketia alleged that government is using the Airbus scandal and matters arising from the Electoral Commission as a ploy to divert the attention of Ghanaians from the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

He, therefore, urged party members to avoid commenting on the Airbus scandal and rather, channel their energy to the fight against the coronavirus and how government is handling it.

“In the past few days, it has been reported that a senior official at the Electoral Commission has declared that if the Commission is unable to compile a new voter’s register, there would be no elections in December this year. Again, the Special Prosecutor is also reported to have formally invited some personalities to assist his office in investigating the so-called Airbus scandal.”

“We in the NDC view these pronouncements as statements designed to create a controversy when the attention of the people of Ghana is focused on the efforts of the government and other stakeholders to take the necessary measures to ensure the preservation of the lives and welfare of the good people of Ghana.”

“Accordingly, the NDC is by this statement urging all its communicators to avoid being drawn into matters that are irrelevant to the fight to stop the spread of the pandemic. We value the lives of our fellow citizens and will not spend any time responding to issues that have no bearing whatsoever on the preservation of life,” part of the statement read.
