The Greater Accra regional Branch of the ruling NDC has called on the leadership of the opposition New Patriotic Party to call its “hooligans” to order or risk provoking a violent reaction from.
The warning from the party comes on the back of the Sunday clashes between some members of the NDC, who were on a health walk, and the security detail of the NPP flagbearer, in front of his Nima residence in Accra. The melee which resulted in gunshots was coiled by the Nima police who were swift in response.
The NPP has accused the NDC of starting the confrontation by throwing stones into the compound of Nana Akufo-Addo, who was not in the residence at the time.
But in a statement, the NDC said the attacks were started by the security guards who could not stand the NDC crowd passing in front of the residence.
“We the people of Greater Accra had a peaceful health walk, we got out of our houses around 5:00am and we never gave guns to any of our supporters.” “So we feel that the statement that was issued by the NPP is full of blatant lies and they must be ashamed of themselves for wanting to plunge this country into chaos and we the NPP will not allow that to happen.
“We are here to assure the Ghanaian public and its entity that we the NDC members are peace loving people and will do all possible to maintain a peaceful atmosphere; we will therefore not take any foolishness of the NPP in this region from henceforth. We are sending this strong signal to the NPP to caution their hooligans to refrain from any more attack on our party members in the region. They will face swift response from our men should they dare to do any stupid move from today,” Greater Accra Regional Organizer of the NDC, Anthony Nukpenu warned.
