The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is asking the newly elected executives of their political opponents, the NDC, led by Johnson Asiedu Nketia to change from engaging in unwarranted political violence.
Speaking to the press at the party’s headquarters in Accra, Justin Frimpong Kodua, the General Secretary of the NPP noted that the NDC is currently the most violent political party in Ghana.
According to him, a comment by former President John Dramani Mahama which affirms that the party was established on the foundations of violence is something the NPP will never condone.
"We wish to use this occasion in the interest of the nation to admonish the Asiedu Nketia-led national executives to take steps to reform the NDC and get rid of the party’s addiction to violence," he said.
"Indeed, John Mahama was right then, and he is still right today. No political party can match their records when it comes to political violence," he added.
Due to how his outfit loves and cherishes the development and peace of Ghanaians, JFK said they are nowhere close to the opposition party in terms of violence.
"We in the NPP can certainly not compete with the NDC in unleashing violence because we love our dear country," he said.
He claimed that the NDC had become very addicted to violence to the point where they could not hold a single event without exhibiting violence, citing the 10th Youth and Women’s Congress on Saturday, December 10, at Cape Coast as an example.
