The National Democratic Party (NDP) has sent a strong warning to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) not to draw it into its diabolic agenda against the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Supreme Court.
The party has thus denied its involvement in a demonstration planned by the NDC against the Electoral Commission of Ghana and the Supreme Court.
A statement signed by the General Secretary of the NDP, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong, declared that the NDP is not party to any joint committee and has no knowledge of collaboration with the NDC to embark on a demonstration against the EC and the Supreme Court.
The statement said such notices were purely orchestrated by some fanatics of the NDC to advance their own diabolic assignment.
It further regarded the inclusion of the NDP in the fake notice as a deliberate attempt to garner credibility for their cynical actions which have the potential to plunge the nation into a state of insecurity.
“We of the NDP are of the conviction that the attempt by the NDC to discredit the EC and the Supreme Court through the post-election petition violence are deliberately calculated to sustain their futile hopes of a possible Mahama comeback. Indeed the willingness of the NDC to advance such parochial political interest without recourse to the preservation of the peace and security of Ghana should serve as adequate basis for Ghanaians to reject them again in the next presidential and parliamentary elections.”
The Party thus serves notice that they will faithfully guard their integrity by taking all necessary steps to expose the individuals behind the shameless association of their party with NDC in executing such a nation-wrecking agenda.
“By this notice, the NDP totally dissociates itself from any demonstration by any acts of conception, planning or participation, against the EC and the Justices of the Supreme Court of Ghana. Again, it important to put on record that Owusu Cobblah Richard and Kobby Ramson, conveners of the purported demonstration, are not members or founding fathers of NDP and must be disregarded as heartless political imposters,” it said.
The NDP also mentioned that the party is made up of reasonable likeminded people who believe in the rule of law and that their goal as a party is to contribute meaningfully to nation building through political discourses that positively reflect the needs and aspiration of the Ghanaian citizenry.
“Ours is not to embark on Faustian political machinations geared towards collapsing the State. To this end, we are fully committed to strengthening Ghana’s democracy by upholding the institutions of State in high esteem. And we shall respect the ruling of the Justices of the Supreme Court regardless of the outcome. Most importantly, we also entreat all well-meaning Ghanaians to do same. For that is the only way to ensure development in a sustained democracy.”
