The NPP branch at the Upper Denkyira East has accused the opposition party, NDC for defacing their campaign posters and billboards belonging to the NPP Parliamentary Candidate in the area.
Meanwhile, the NDC has denied the New Patriotic Party’s claims of being responsible for defacing the posters. The posters and billboards were defaced with dirty oil.
This situation has sparked some tension in the town with some NPP supporters threatening to disrupt the visit of former President John Mahama to the constituency, a situation the police are trying to bring under control.
Addressing the disgruntled supporters of the New patriotic party, the party’s parliamentary candidate for Upper Denkyira East, Festus Awuah, alleged that the billboards and posters are being defaced by their political opponent, the National Democratic Congress.
“This act could only come from someone who has already lost a political battle even before the general elections,” the NPP parliamentary candidate said.
“Today is a good day for the NPP because so many good things are happening within the constituency. But we woke up only to see this dastardly act. Our opponent has decided to employ this strategy after coming to terms with the realities that they cannot wrestle and win the seat,” Festus Awuah said.
