The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was not present at the 26th National Delegates Conference held on Saturday.
As tradition demands, political parties by invited to give solidarity messages at conferences organized by other political parties.
However, the NDC was conspicuously missing at the conference held by the NPP at the Koforidua Technical University in the Eastern region.
Explaining why the party failed to attend the conference, Fred Agbenyo, the Communications Officer of the party said the umbrella failed to attend the event due to the removal of Mrs Charlotte Osei as commissioner.
“One has to do with the fact that we are mourning the former Vice President. The second has to do with the fact that we couldn’t trust the President. We think that the President is becoming a threat to our democracy.”
“If you look at the recent actions he [Nana Akufo-Addo] has taken; that which has to do with the removal of the EC boss and her deputies, and what is happening with the national identification authority, we in the NDC don’t believe that this is a person we want to solidarise with.”
