SACK GBEVLO, & ARREST YAW GYAN
From Sebastian R. Freiku, Kumasi
The Kumasi Polytechnic branch of the Tertiary Education Students Confederation of the New Patriotic Party (TESCON) has called on President John Mahama to give the head of National Security, Lt. Col. Larry Gbevlo Lartey (rtd), the boot, following the security chief’s inability to arrest Mr. Yaw Boateng Gyan, National Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress, after the infamous secret tape.
The student body made the call at a news conference at K-Poly on Tuesday.
The President of the K-Poly TESCON, Kofi Poku Abrante, urged President John Mahama to walk his talk of a peaceful election by relieving Larry Gbevlo Lartey of his post to avert any breach of national security.
The students also want the NDC National Organiser arrested to help with thorough investigations into the said audio recording.
Mr. Poku Abrante said the equation was always the reverse that when members of the ruling NDC make such sensitive pronouncements, which have the potency of overturning the peace in our country, no action is taken.
He wondered why the security capo could draw such a blind conclusion and not find anything worth investigating about the tape, after he claimed he had listened to the infamous audio recording.
The local TESCON President stated that the security chief had brought his outfit into great disrepute, for which reason, the President, without pretending that he does not know the security implications of Gbevlo Lartey’s insensitivity, should show him the exit and cause the arrest of Yaw Boateng Gyan.
“President Mahama has been tight-lipped over the developments. If he could kill a fly with a bulldozer, then he should tell us the appropriate tool for killing his own people for beating war drums,” he stated.
