A former Deputy National Security Coordinator, Hopeson Adorye, has criticized the presidency, accusing individuals in Jubilee House of using intimidation tactics against him.

He voiced his frustration over what he perceives as unfair treatment by the administration he helped bring to power.

Mr Adorye highlighted his contributions to the current administration’s success and asserted his right to a share of the power held by Jubilee House.

“For me to do party work and employ a strategy for you to win power. I am saying it here today, all those in the Jubilee House, nobody can use the power to intimidate me. I have a percentage in the power,” Adorye proclaimed on a panel discussion on Onua TV on May 29, 2024.

He added “You have cut me off from benefiting from the monetary aspect, no problem. But for the power to defend yourself in town, there is no way for someone to intimidate me.”

Mr Adorye, who was expelled from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) months ago, admitted during a radio interview that during the 2016 elections, he and others used dynamites in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) strongholds to intimidate voters.

This revelation has led to his arrest and pending trial.

He was released on 20,000 Ghana cedis bail by a Circuit Court on May 23 over charges of publication of false news.

This followed his overnight detention at the Ministries Police Station after being invited to the CID headquarters of the Ghana Police Service earlier in the week.
