General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has asked the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to remain calm and stop complaining about what they have termed as violence and thuggery under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.
Mr Boadu in an interview with Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said, the NDC as a party, is known to be violent, lawless and irresponsible.
The leaders of the umbrella are not supposed to comment on issues relating to violence because they lack the moral right to do so.
The NDC he opined is full of evil and wicked people who unleash violence on people for pleasure and their personal political interest.
He cited Talensi and Atiwa as examples to buttress his point of the NDC being violent.
John Boadu said he had his fair share of the violent attacks unleashed on the NPP when the NDC was in power.
He described the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, as a violent person who presided over all the attacks unleashed on the NPP when the party [NDC] was in power.
‘’Asiedu Nketiah has experience in hooliganism, violence and thuggery in this country because he has supervised these things over the years. Asiedu Nketiah led violence in Asutifi, Talensi and other areas. I was personally attacked. Some of our leaders were chased with guns and clubs. Did we not have a president in Ghana at the time? Was it water that was flowing through our veins after the NPP members were attacked? The NDC is a violent party so they should stop crying like babies. Most of them are wicked people. It is the NDC we are talking about so Ghanaians should not sympathise with them.
Reacting to the shooting incident that marred the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, he said although the incident was unfortunate, it saved the NDC from snatching ballot boxes and engaging IN violent activities,.
He also described the decision by the Minority not to recognise Lydia Alhassan as the MP of Ayawaso West Wuogon as laughable.
‘’It is laughable because they do not have the right to take that decision.’’
