The largest opposition political party in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has through its Greater Accra Regional executives assured its supporters across the country that, the party will not walk into any future elections with its bare hands again the current government of President Nana Akufo-Addo does not understand that language.
According to a press statement issued and signed by the Regional organizer of the NDC, Anthony Nukpenu,
“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. We shall stand and defend ourselves at the peril of any attack that comes our way. Let the president, Akufo-Addo be told, he is not an embodiment of violence. He and his security apparatuses are inadequate for the mass revolution.
“I want to assure all party executives in the region and outside, party members and the entire Ghanaians of our collective resolve to put in all necessary measures to win the 2020 general election. Nothing will intimidate us. We shall stand by the truth and the truth shall give us victory” he added.
He said, the decision of the national leadership after the violent incidents at Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election was not palatable to many members but upon a far-reaching analysis, it was the best to save Ghana from taking a bath in blood.
He assured them of a strong collaborative effort to put in combating measures to avert such occurrences in the near future.
He urged NDC members and supporters to stand firm and that it is never true that the party has turned into a church as some are terming it.
Hoodlums of ruling NPP government, led by President Akufo-Addo, went to a shooting spree on innocent voters at Awayaso West constituency in Accra where a by-election was held to replace the late Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko. About 18 people sustained life-threatening injuries, which led to the opposition NDC boycotting the election.
So far the United Nations and other international bodies have issued statements to condemn the barbaric acts of the NPP vigilante groups sponsored who are alleged to be receiving sponsorship from the Akufo-Addo government.
