‘I have been raised to glory’

Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant Hopeson Adorye has sarcastically thanked the party, the President and the Chief of Staff for his recent arrest.

Adorye was released on bail of 20,000 Ghana Cedis by a Circuit Court (May 23) after being prosecuted for publishing fake news.

In his first interview since his release, he spoke to the Announcer Newspaper Facebook page and detailed how his lawyers secured bail for him.

“Have we heard that he has been granted bail?” asked the host, Dad Fred.

Adorye replied: “Yes, we were in Dansoman Circuit Court, the police wanted me to be remanded for investigations, but this was all a question of law, so my lawyers prevailed.

“President Akufo-Addo, Frema Opare, the chief of staff and the NPP party have elevated me to glory and the battle remains the Lord’s. That is my message to all Ghanaians,” he stressed.

His arrest is linked to a public claim that he had detonated explosives in parts of the opposition stronghold in the Volta region during the 2016 general election.

He admitted that the operation was a personal mission that he carried out behind the backs of regional executives. He later clarified that the incident occurred in neighboring Togo, arguing that there were no reports of an explosion in the Volta region before or during the 2016 elections.
