Some members of the pro governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Vigilante Group, Invisible Forces, in the Asutifi North District of the Brong Ahafo Rgion are seething with anger over what they describe as “failed promises” made by Member of Parliament for the area, Hon. Joseph Daha.
According to the irate members, the MP promised to provide five of them with motorbikes as a reward for their hardwork in providing security for the party during the electioneering campaign ahead of the 2016 general elections but has failed to do so years after winning the elections.
A member of the group, Mark Abire told SilverFM’s Nana Kwabena Ampratwum on Omanbapa morning show that the MP and DCE had taken them for granted, stating that they are fed up waiting endlessly for the reward and have decided to make sure the NPP lose the seat in next general elections.
“There were 36 of us who worked hard and provided security for the party. However, along the line some of the members stopped the work after they developed the fear of being attacked and killed by Naaba, the dreaded brother of Hon. Collins Dauda. We soldiered on and went into certain no-go areas in the constituency and managed to do our work effectively culminating in the NPP’s victory”. he said.
“The MP promised the five of us who were left to do the work till the end of the campaign, and that he will buy for us Azonto Motorbikes but has not honoured his promise over a year after the elections. If he is able to bring the motorbikes, we will not have any issues with him, but if he dares step in this constituency without honouring his promise to us, we will advise ourselves” he grumbled.
He said the president has fulfilled his promise to Ghanaians by implementing the free SHS programme and as a government official under the NPP they expect that he does same by fulfilling his promise made to them.
The aggrieved members have vowed to revenge by scheming a way to stop the community from voting for the NPP and to unseat Joseph Daha in the 2020 elections.
They also recounted how they were promised jobs during the 2016 electioneering campaign but now that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is in power, officials have turned their backs on them to the extent that the MP and DCE have declared that they do not know them as members of the NPP vigilante group, Invisible Forces.
The angry members therefore made it clear to the MP and DCE, Anthony Mensah to work together and find a lasting solution to their plight.
