Spread the love

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asutifi South, Collins Dauda, has refuted allegations of his arrest by the Ghana Police Service in relation to some disruptions at a Limited Voter Registration centre.

He stated that he is not the MP for Asunafo South, as the police statement indicated, nor did he visit the named center to oversee the voter registration there.

He has, therefore, urged the public to dismiss the reports of his arrest as they are false.

“…Collins Dauda vehemently denies any involvement in or connection to the reported violent incidents during the voter registration exercise.

“Contrary to the misinformation being spread, Hon. Collins Dauda asserts that he is not the Member of Parliament for Asunafo South, the constituency in which the alleged incidents occurred. He confirms that he has not visited that constituency during the period in question, thus making any claims of his involvement baseless and untrue,” he clarified in a statement.

Dauda suggested that certain individuals within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) might be disseminating such misleading information to damage his reputation.

He has called on the police in the Ahafo Region to investigate the matter and detain the culprits to face justice.

“These unfounded allegations, purportedly propagated by certain elements within the NPP party in the Asutifi South constituency and the Ahafo Region, are viewed by Collins Dauda as a deliberate smear campaign aimed at tarnishing his reputation and credibility.

“He is actively engaging legal measures to address the dissemination of false information and defamation of character. Additionally, he urges the Ghana Police Service in the Ahafo Region to swiftly investigate and apprehend those responsible for spreading fake news about him,” his statement, signed by Isaac Yaw Mensah, Deputy Constituency Secretary for Asutifi South, said.

It was previously reported by the Ghana Police Service on their official Twitter account that the MP for Asutifi South, Collins Dauda, had been arrested for his role in the disturbances during the Limited Voter Registration Exercise.
