The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has blamed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the insecurity situation in the country.
The party is also alleging that the ongoing kidnappings and insecurity in the country has increased because the vigilante groups and their members used by the NPP to win power in 2016, have been neglected hence their decision to unleash their anger through criminal activities.
The party’s Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi at a press conference on Thursday alluded to the fact that the NPP was reaping from the evil seeds they planted.
‘’Indeed, today, the world has seen the true character of President Akufo-Addo and the NPP. They are reaping the fruits of the evil seed they planted. Their evil agenda against the NDC and its National Chairman has backfired terribly. We now know who the real kidnappers are, and the political party they belong to and work for.’’
He said the NDC had consistently told Ghanaians the persons behind the kidnappings were not ordinary criminals but strong supporters of the NPP and associates of influential leaders of the party and top government officials.
‘’Ladies and gentlemen of the press, we have amply demonstrated to you, that the ringleader and masterminds of the nefarious kidnapping of the two Canadian girls are not ordinary criminals. These are party thugs associated with the New Patriotic Party vigilante group, Delta Forces in the Ashanti Region.
We in the NDC have always maintained that the phenomenon of political party vigilantes could have the potential of a tailspin into full-blown violent crime. This is because, criminals will always remain criminals, irrespective of whether they are clothed in party colours or not,’’ he said.
According to him, ‘’the devil will always find work for the idle hands, and after using these thugs for the purposes of winning elections, President Akufo-Addo and the NPP have abandoned them to fend for themselves. In their quest for survival in these difficult times, resorting to kidnapping has become a lucrative venture for them.
He concluded by calling on Ghanaians to pray in order for the situation to be resolved.
‘’We urge all Ghanaians to continue to remember our nation in prayer at this difficult time. May God deliver us from oppressive and treacherous rule,’’ he noted.
