Prez Mahama Condemns Attacks on NDC Supporters

Share

President John Mahama has condemned unprovoked attacks on supporters of his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) by members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) following the outcome of Wednesday’s presidential and parliamentary polls that went in favour of the opposition party and its Presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo.

The Mahama-led NDC government was thumped at the polls last Wednesday losing out to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who secured 53.85% of the total valid votes cast. He won the popular vote in six of Ghana’s 10 regions.

But following attacks of his party’s supporters, the out-going president said he is disappointed at the inability or unwillingness of the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to call its rampaging supporters to order.

In a statement signed by Communications Minister Edward Omane Boamah, Mr. Mahama directed security personnel to station themselves across the country and arrest any person(s) caught vandalising government property or attacking innocent Ghanaians.

Below is the statement from the Ministry of Communications:

President John Dramani Mahama has expressed disappointment at the inability or unwillingness of the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to call its rampaging supporters to order, following a series of attacks on innocent citizens and supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Some supporters of the NPP have also attacked government installations across the country.

President Mahama has accordingly directed the security agencies to deploy across the country and arrest any person(s) caught vandalising government property or attacking innocent Ghanaians.

Signed:
Edward K. Omane Boamah (Dr.)
Minister for Communications
Accra.
