Young Patriots accuse NDC of circulating Nana/Bawumia victory T-shirts ahead of SC judgement
Pro opposition group The Young Patriots say the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has not printed any victory T-shirt to celebrate a possible win after the Supreme Court announces its decision on the Election Petition challenging the legitimacy of President Mahaha.
The group believes the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is behind the printing of the said T-shirts which they say has the pictures of NPP flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia embossed on them.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the group said: “If the NDC is so certain of an Akufo-Addo victory in this election petition, then our only advice to them is to hold on to their stock of ‘victory’ t-shirts and release same after Thursday, [August 29 after the court has announced its decision]“.
Below is the full statement
Nana/Bawumia victory T-shirts a ploy to tarnish NPP’s image
Our intelligence indicate that some unscrupulous opponents of the NPP have printed victory T-shirts with the embossment of Nana Akufo Addo and Dr Bawumia pictures. This would not wash! Let them rather spend their energies to intensify their prayers.
The said T-shirts are not of the NPP. While, we cannot stop anyone from printing T-shirts, we only hope that this is not yet another reckless abuse of public funds.
If the NDC is so certain of an Akufo-Addo victory in this election petition, then our only advice to them is to hold on to their stock of ‘victory’ t-shirts and release same after Thursday.
The national peace council should also call the said journalist and media houses to order and ensure such provocative and wicked tricks are discouraged as the nation awaits this historic verdict.
To all NPP supporters, we urge you to be calm, prayerful and ignore any diversionary tactics from our opponents, who are masters of communist inferior tactics.
We will also urge our party supporters not to react to any form of provocation. Whether it is a doctored tape or any form of propaganda, seeking to pitch the NPP against the Supreme Court.
The Battle is the Lord’s and the Lordships shall take a decision without fear or favour, one way or the other. Let us grant them the space and serenity to do so.
