NDC must not just react to Bryan Acheampong’s speech, they must act ~ Security expert



Listening and analysing Bryan Acheampong’s stage speech as an expert in Security gives me a clear picture of how the NPP intend to approach 2024 election in the context of Security. Obviously, it is not a surprise to me seeing Bryan Acheampong leading this crusade. As a former minister of state in charge of national security at the presidency with his background in Security intelligence and a lead marshal in the gruesome brutality that took place in the Ayawaso West Wuogon by – election 2019, a clear public known evidence.

Bryan Acheampong’s speech indicates clearly that, NPP is going into 2024 election with the adoption of what we call OFFENSIVE SECURITY STRATEGY as it’s major Security strategy and DEFENSIVE SECURITY STRATEGY as it minor Security strategy. Having these strategies in mind are what had confidently and vehemently triggered Bryan to voice out how the NPP has plan not to hand over power to the NDC.

The NPP’s believe that, it is possible to break the eight(8) since they have succeeded in recruiting their own party royalists with no certificates into all the Security institutions; the likes of NIB, SWAT, National security, Military, Police and many others.These guys within themselves believe their livelihood largely depends on how long their party stay in power and for that matter are ready to die for the party. Most of these guys were members of the Invisible and Delta Forces used in their 2016 COMPETITIVE SECURITY STRATEGY adopted by the NPP. Knowing well their royalists are on the ground, believe there can be no betrayal in it’s intelligence forward operations towards 2024 election unlike the failure and the betrayal of the Security architecture or apparatus of the NDC in 2016 election.

In actual fact, the rank and file of the NDC must not just verbally REACT to Bryan’s statement but must ACT strategically. An attempt to react to Bryan’s statement without any actions will enable the NPP’s to predict how the NDC is prepared towards the 2024 election.

Political Security statement like Bryan’s statement are more of a defensive mechanism than anything, inasmuch as it hype up him, it can also cause the opponents in this case the executives of the NDC to become angry or irrational and say certain things that will not contribute positively to the party ahead of the 2024 election.

Even though Bryan’s statement could be considered as psychological warfare, NDC Stalwarts must not rubbish it or take it for granted but rather should be calm, focus and strike at the appropriate time. This is because in Security, there is a strategical principle that states “A tactical framework that has been implemented successfully, can be implemented again to achieve a target”. Meaning the strategy implemented in Ayawaso as a case study can be implemented again in a broader context.

NOTE : The questions the rank and file of the NDC must urgently ask themselves are as follows;

1. What Security strategies are the party adopting to counter and overpower the NPP’s strategies going into 2024 election to achieve a win result?

2. How prepared is the party in employing experts in Security and it’s financial strength mobilization towards the successfully implementation of those strategies?

3. Are the party’s loyalists ready to sacrifice their lives and what do they intend to benefit in return?
