The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has advised the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to do politics devoid of vituperative languages to help build the country.
The deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen, who was presenting their solidarity message at the Accra International Trade Fare Centre, La, Accra, on Saturday indicated that “insults, character assassination” was not the best in the country’s body politicking.
Nana Obiri Boahen said the NDC and the NPP are the only two (2) major political parties that are likely to rule the country from time to time, noting with concern the practice of mudslinging, lies, propaganda that continues to divide the nation on political lines would not develop Ghana.
The former minister said there must be a collective effort to change the paradigm shift to help bring decency in the political space of the country.
Nana Oniri Boahene further appealed to NDC delegates to exhibit maturity to make the national elections successful.
Nana Obiri Boahen, a private legal practitioner, did not end his speech without taking a swipe at the NDC to be a responsible opposition party and make constructive criticisms that will help improve governance.
