Photo the week: Are NPP and NDC united in the fight against drugs?

In this photo, General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia and former New Patriotic Party (NPP) General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie show another token of unity. 

If only they can show the same posture in the fight against drugs, this photo will not be a mere token or another lip-service.

This week, one single, simple allegation from jailed Nayele Ametefe has set off another guerilla war between the NPP and NDC as to which party is most amenable to pushing illicit drugs.

The NDC’s National Organiser, Kofi Adams has suggested his party is second. Nobody wants the first spot.

But if we can understand and agree and settle it once and for all that a person becomes a drug peddler before he becomes a party figure, then we will no longer be defensive but sober in the knowledge that drug trafficking is too powerful to be one-party phenomena.

In good times, Aseidu Nketia has held hands with popular former General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka ‘Sir John’ but Ghana’s reputation with drug peddling means we are in bad times.

Can the two parties, hold hands once again and fight a menace too powerful for each of them?
