The youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Young Democrats, have expressed worry over recent pronouncements of leading members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) saying it is a “grand scheme by the leadership of the NPP to throw darkness and evil on the peace and development that the country currently enjoys”.
In a statement, the Young Democrats warned the likes of Ken Ofori-Atta and Gabby Otchere-Darko that the law will deal with them if “they try anything sinister”.
Below is the full statement:
NPP, ASARE OTCHERE-DARKO PLOTS & CO. PLOTS TO UNLEASH VIOLENCE BUT PEACE AND THE RULE OF LAW WILL PREVAIL. YOUNG DEMOCRATS.
Leadership of Young Democrats are extremely worried about the penchant of the NPP and its leaders to quickly spit fire of violence and threats to the Justices of the supreme courts in respect of the impending election 2012 court case, yet to be determined.
It will be recalled that the Africa Watch Magazine recently alleged that Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP were scheming to bring about chaos if the Supreme Court ruled against the party.
This was part of a grand scheme by the leadership of the NPP to throw darkness and evil on the peace and development that the country currently enjoys. We all recalled the infamous “all die be die” and “we have to win the election at all cost” statements declared by Nana Akufo-Addo. We also recall failed calls by the NPP on its members to go on the streets to jubilate at a time when the EC was yet to declare the presidential results.
As if it was not enough, when these wicked orchestrations failed, the NPP violent group quickly metamorphosed into “Let My Votes Count” gallivanting the length and breadth of this country with diabolical plans to throw bombs on schools and innocent Ghanaians going about their normal duties amongst various threats of death and violence on the Supreme Court judges.
Just recently, Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh was also heard on air threatening the Supreme Court judges on the NDC joinder case if judgment went in the joinders’ favour.
So why will Asare Otchere-Darko see his own mentor Nana Addo as a weak leader and assert that Ghanaians are lucky Nana Addo chose the cheap option of seeking redress? Does the NPP feel the prescriptions from the 1992 Constitution to pursue electoral disputes are cheap? Do they (NPP) believe in the Rule of Law at all?
If the NPP and Nana Addo think the path of going to a competent court of jurisdiction to seek redress is weak, then why did they in the first place chose that path?
Could it be that they (NPP) wanted to only buy time with the slow court processes so that they can hatch evil on Ghanaian?
The NPP indeed represents a REAL AXIS OF EVIL in Ghanaian politics and should be watched carefully.
Young Democrats also wish to assure Ken Ofori Atta, Asare Ochere-Darko and the NPP that the law will deal with them severely should they try anything sinister.
We (Young Democrats) also wish to assure Ghanaians that those who plan in the night to rain violence on us are all timorous and does not believe in the forward march and should be exposed never to lead this nation.
We also condemn the NPP and Nana Addo who have remained silent on these matters. Civil society organizations, religious leaders and all stakeholders of Corporate Ghana should as a matter of urgency come out to condemn these violent attitudes of the NPP and their leaders to order, before things fall apart.
Young Democrats will continue to support H.E President Dramani Mahama and all well meaning Ghanaians whose objective is to promote peace, security and the rule of law in the country.
God bless the people of Ghana and God bless Ghana
