Caleb Kudah’s National Security arrest; Taste it, NPP is your own people -NDC MP



Mr Kudah

The Member of Parliament for the Jirapah Constituency, Mr Cletus Seibu Dapilah has waded into ongoing discussions about assault on the life of the Citi FM/TV journalist, Mr Caleb Kudah for filming in a security zone without permission.

According to him, the media station supported the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in campaigning against the then John Dramini Mahama administration hence they were reaping the results of their own works.

Speaking on Pan African Television’s Good Morning Africa on Wednesday, May 12, the National Democratic Congress(NDC), MP described the media house as an affiliate of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) adding “they should taste it, that is their own people, the people that they are always writing stories supporting them”.

“……Citi FM, If you ask any Ghanaian, they will tell you Citi FM is affiliated to the NPP, they will tell you that because of what they say, because of their stories, because of all of them helping to campaign against the then Mahama administration so I wasn’t surprised when they went in that jetigese style to arrest Caleb and his friend, they should taste it that is their own people, the people that they are always writing stories supporting them”.
