General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has accused the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of attempts to eliminate some of its Members of Parliament elects.
According to him that is the NPP’s only hope of controlling Parliament and therefore are trying every means to make it come to life.
“Our candidate in Techiman has been attacked twice. His houseboy has been shot and he was attacked two days ago. They want to take his life. They think that is the way to get out of this mess. Once he is killed then everything comes to a close.
“The modus operandi of the NPP now is that if the NDC has won seats that they cannot contest then let us find a way of eliminating some of the people who have won so that the remaining number will be less than what we have won so that on that they can determine who becomes the Speaker of Parliament”.
“More than four of our candidates have come under attack in these past two weeks. Our candidate-elects for Keta, Jomoro, Savelegu and Christopher Bayere have been all attacked. Bayere has been attacked twice”.
