Politics of Friday, 26 August 2016
Acting General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has indicated that the party will not leave any ‘attack’ from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) “unreplied”.
He claims there are Ghanaian some electorates who can be induced with money as low as 5 cedis to change their minds and vote for a particular political party.
Due to this, the NPP will counter every criticisms from the ruling party directed at the party’s flagbearer, Nana Addo.
“In Ghana, 10 cedis can change somebody’s mind to vote. Ghc 10 is even huge. Sometimes, 5 cedis; so if you leave it this way, you create problems for yourself,” he said.
John Boadu noted that though President John Dramani Mahama and his appointees are making up stories about Nana Addo and deceiving Ghanaians about the NPP flagbearer’s personality, their height of absurd allegations was when they (NDC) accused him (Nana Addo) of being a “dictator”.
“…under no measure can you even describe Nana Addo as a dictator. You can’t,” he stressed
According to him, NDC is the only party that has been persecuting its members to the extent that some of the party folks were compelled to form their own political sects.
He believed no smearing of Nana Addo’s character will change the minds of Ghanaians as the Mahama administration has worsened the plight of Ghanaians.
“There is no political party whose members have been persecuted with three other political parties formed out of that persecution….nothing in the annals of this country’s political history can beat what happened in the NDC. The NDC has no peers when it comes to that,” he emphasized on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’.
