Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George, has charged the party to take action against violent acts being perpetrated by alleged thugs of the NPP.
He said members of the opposition should not resort to only press conferences the NPP thugs continue to brutulise them in the Electoral Commission’s ongoing voter’s registration exercise.
In an interview with Dwaboase host Kwame Minkah on Power 97.9 FM Wednesday morning, the legislator stated the failure of the NDC candidates to be sturdy and face the thugs, that have been deliberately unleashed to terrorize innocent citizens in the party’s stronghold, would be a huge blow to the victory cause of the umbrella family.
“We are only registering people so if the NPP guys misbehave because they have power and are landlords of Ghana and the NDC candidates sit aloof and watch, they would have disappointed the party,” Mr George opined as he condemned the violence being perpetrated by some persons linked to the NPP.
“Why we have you as candidates of NDC means you need to lead your people and not to sit on the fence and look on; you need to work for the party at all times. Look, the press conferences are many. Our people are tired of the press conferences they want to see action,” Sam George urged.
NPP sponsored violence have been reported in some constituencies, including Banda, Awutu Senya East, Tano South, Krowor, and Ayawaso West Wuogon.
Renowned actor and parliamentary candidate for NDC at Ayawaso West Wuogon, John Dumelo has expressed concerns over the violent attacks on his agents, indicating his agents were brutalized by persons linked to the NPP candidate Lydia Alhassan in the presence of Policemen.
