Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has described the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), as a politician who lacks credibility.
“Asiedu Nketia is not a credible character and so I don’t pay attention to him anytime he talks about politics because he is still on the Kindergarten level and still needs lessons from me” he said.
Nana Obiri Boahen made the comment after the NDC scribe attributed the insistent violence perpetrated by vigilante groups under the Akufo-Addo-led government to the absence of discipline and castigation of culprits by government.
Speaking to the international community at a Socialist forum in Germany, Mr. Nketia said the upsurge of political vigilantism in Ghana is an element that has the tendency to strip the country of its peace and stability.
“These attacks have grown in magnitude and they include attacks on security services, we have incidents where military officers have been lynched by mobs, we have instances where these vigilante groups calling themselves variously; Invisible forces, Delta forces, etc. invade police stations, break into cells and release suspects because they claim the NPP members are immune to any form of arrest in other words, they are living above the law because they happen to be members of a party living in power”, he said.
Reacting to this assertion on Accra-based Neat FM, Nana Obiri Boahen cast doubt on the assertion of the General Secretary.
The NPP deputy General Secretary said they would not kowtow to the whims and caprices of the NDC because they had sworn to protect public property.
The NPP man said his party will not allow NDC’s vile propaganda to distract President Akufo-Addo from fulfilling all his promises to Ghanaians.
