NDC advises supporters to refrain from chieftaincy/religious conflicts

By gna

Alhaji Seidu Jamatutu, Wa Central Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, has advised party supporters to refrain from chieftaincy and religious issues in their campaigns to win votes.

He said the NDC was committed to ensuring peace through out the campaign and election period and as a result, it had restrained its supporters from reacting to provocative utterances by its opponents.

Alhaji Jamatutu, who was speaking to the Ghana News Agency at Wa, said the party would retain the Wa Central seat without insulting or intimidating anyone.

He accused the New Patriotic Party of not bringing development to the constituency for the eight year reign and added that the NDC was set to reverse the trend when it won power in the December 7, 2008 election.

“The NPP has not done anything for the Wa Municipality. We have not seen any investments through out these eight years and even the few construction firms that employ our youth have all collapsed”.

Alhaji Jamatutu said the NDC was matching its achievements while in office against the numerous unfulfilled promises of the NPP for Ghanaians to judge and bring the NDC back to power.

He said Ghanaians needed a change in governance since another victory for the NPP would see an emergence of dictatorship in the country.

He appealed to supporters of the other political opposition parties to conduct peaceful campaigns so that the Municipality would be spared the violence that had characterized political campaigns in other parts of the country.
