The manner in which the military acted was cruel and unethical. How can you presume that every body has gotten an information and acted on that presumption.
I was part of the group that was taking our father to his final rest. We were whipped like small children for no crime offended.
I don’t want to believe that these soldiers are acting on their volition but on the command and directives of both the Mayor and the Regional minister. They canned us and seized some of our motorcycles that was part of the entourage up till now we are yet to collect our bikes.
The most annoying part of their stupid animalistic behavior was when after they stopped our entourage they bust all the four tyres of the paramount chief of the Dohni traditional area pick up.
I speak for the NPP and Government but what the mayor and the military are doing is foolishness and must be condemned in no uncertain terms. More so the deceased who we went bury yesterday has been a founding member of the NPP at Tolon since 1992 and so deserved better treatment from the quarters of the NPP.
Prior to the 2016 general elections he was sick but we had to drag him to the voting center to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP which eventually gave birth to the NPP Government today.
I’m sending a serious signal to the mayor to born in mind that he’s a Government appointee and must work in the greatest interest of the party that gave him that mandate.
We must think before we act!
