Leaders of De-Eye Group have rubbished suggestions by Joy Fm Journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni that their members were being trained by the ruling New Patriotic Party for Election 2020.
A statement issued by the leadership of the group and signed by the Director of Operations, Abigail Osei and its secretary, Ohene Darko said member of the group were being prepared for future job opportunities and were made to submit their CV’s while they awaited such opportunities.
‘’When NPP won power in 2016, a lot of the Ghanaian youth who were unemployed then trooped to the Osu castle and the then Flagstaff house to seek for employment-this situation occurs most often when a new government assumes power. In some situations, the party members expect members of the party that was once in government to be laid off so they occupy the positions. These young men and women couldn’t be driven away by the government. They were made to submit their CVs and subsequently gave them orientations at the Osu Castle to prepare them for future opportunities. Some of these young men and women who qualified from such trainings have fully gained employment and they have left the premises’’.
They argued further that ‘’these are not militia groups that are being trained for election 2020 as being alleged falsely by my good friend and brother, Manasseh Azure Awuni. Manasseh should have done himself good if he had gone further to interview the leader of the group. These are purely Ghanaian youth who were seeking for opportunities to get employed and eventually had. Better means can be used to fight against vigilantism or political militias but must not be done on hatred and falsehood’’.
