The New Patriotic Party has admonished the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, to undertake reforms that will help the NDC get rid of its addiction to violence.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, December 21, General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Frimpong Kodua, said Mr Asiedu Nketiah’s first task as national chairman is to help the NDC shed off its violent tag and respect the laws of the country.
“We wish to use this occasion in the interest of the nation to admonish the Asiedu Nketiah-led National Executives to take steps to reform the NDC and get rid of the Party’s addiction to violence.
“John Mahama was right then, and he is still right today, no political party can match their records when it comes to political violence. We, in the NPP, can certainly not compete with the NDC in unleashing violence, and we do not intend to give this an attempt. It is thus an established fact that the NDC has no regard for the nation’s laws.
It is not surprising that the Ghana Police has listed sixteen (16) NDC thugs as its most wanted individuals as a result of their violent behavior at the party’s recently concluded Youth and Women Congress, which was held in Cape Coast on Saturday, December 10, 2022. As a result, some of their thugs and supporters suffered serious injuries, and several properties were destroyed.
They essentially transformed their congress into a battleground.
We call on members of the public to provide the police with information that would enable the officers to apprehend these NDC vigilantes and subject them to the full force of the law.
Additionally, the NPP has urged Ghanaians to applaud President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his administration for taking action to address the economic issues they faced.
