A Member of Parliament for Ghana’s ruling National Democratic Congress has moved swiftly to distance himself from his constituency youth organiser, David Tettey Kwame, who was arrested two weeks ago over cocaine possession.
The MP, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi of Lower Manya Krobo, Eastern Region, admits that Kwame is his constituency youth organiser, but “the cocaine suspect is not my special assistant”.
The NDC MP also denied that the container from China on which Kwame’s cocaine was found belonged to his son.
“As a party person when my executive gets into trouble, I must be concerned but not when they want to press the thing and say the consignment that is coming is mine and all of a sudden I have a son and things like that…,” he said.
“I don’t have a son; maybe that’s the reason why God never gave me a son, neither do I have a daughter . he fumed, warning, “Whoever says he’s my son will have to come and prove it”
According to reports, the NDC Youth Organiser was rounded up together with others at the Kotoka International Airport during a swoop by security officials.
Sources disclosed that the 29-year-old, who was said to be the special assistant in- charge of protocol to the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, was arrested two weeks ago and had since been remanded into prison custody.
David, a clearing agent, is scheduled to reappear in court on Friday February 6, 2015, according to sources.
