The Ashanti Regional branch of the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC), has confirmed an attack on regional executives of the party who were part of President Mahama’s convoy, during his ‘Accounting to the People Tour’ in the area.
There were earlier media reports that some vehicles in the President’s convoy had been attacked by protesters during the tour. But the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC, Raymond Tandoh, told Citi News’ Umaru Sanda Amadu that although there was a confrontation, it was between constituency executives of the party, and people protesting high utility bills.
According to him, it was not an “attack on the presidential convoy. It was some people along the road that were misbehaving towards the presidential entourage, not even the presidential entourage, the constituency entourage. It is not an attack on the presidential convoy.”
A photo available to citifmonline.com, shows a vehicle in the convoy with a cracked window.
Tandoh explained that “It was on a street where the constituency executives were following later after the presidential convoy had passed.”
“These were the constituency executives who were organizing the programme for the president. So it was after the president had left that they had the confrontation,” he added.
According to him, the police have commenced investigations into the incident.
“It was just an exchange. It wasn’t any major incident at all… we have reported the case to the police and police are investigating so maybe we will get the full report in the evening.”
