Claims that the Akufo-Addo government has brought in Mercenaries and military equipment into the country at Jubilee House has been dismissed by the Minister of Defense, Dominic Nitiwul.
The allegation was first made by social media commentator, Kevin Taylor, that some mercenaries were being trained by a top security officer at the seat of government with containers of equipment. Subsequently, the Minority took over the issues, asking the government to probe the allegations.
The Ranking Member on the Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament, James Agalga, called on the government to speak on the issue.
The Defence Minister has however dismissed all the allegations as untrue and baseless.
He was addressing a press conference in Parliament.
“Let me state that this President will hand over to the duly elected President of Ghana on the 7th of January 2025. Nobody will interfere in the choice of the people of Ghana, not from the military, not the Police and not any politician.”
“This government has not brought anybody into the Jubilee House, who is not a soldier, who is not a police or who is not into the national security. We have not done that since we came into power, and we don’t intend to”.
