NPP has been the most violent party both in rhetoric and in action – Kpessa-Whyte

A Fellow at the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana, Dr Micheal Kpessa-Wyhte has said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been the most violent party in Ghana both in rhetoric and in action.

He recounted that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo incited his followers to engage in violence when he was seeking political power.

After winning the elections, he said, the supporters of the NPP formed vigilantes groups to cause mayhem

Speaking on the Big Issue on TV3 on Tuesday April 11, in relation to the comment by Agric Minister Bryan Acheampong that the NPP would not hand over power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Kpessa-Whyte, who is also a member of the NDC said “If we have to speak about which political party has been most violent both in rhetoric and in action, it is the NPP.

“The man we call President today once upon a time incited his supporters asking them that all die be die and that they should be willing to engage in violence of whatever form just for him to obtain political power and soon after he obtained political power we saw the extent to which they unleashed violent vigilantes on innocent Ghanaians across the country.”

Bryan Acheampong had assured members of the NPP that the economy would bounce back.

He said the government was working to secure a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Hopefully, he said, by June this year the deal will be closed, a situation that will lead to the resurgence of the economy.

Speaking to members of the NPP in Kwahu after a health walk on Saturday, April 8, the Abetifi Lawmaker said “NDC party will collapse. If the NDC dares to use threats, Violence and foolishness in the 2024 election we will let them know we have the men. We will show them that we have the men. We have the men.

“It will never happen that we the NPP will stand on a platform to hand over power to the NDC. It will never happen! We will make sure NPP remain in government at all cost”.

The former Minister of State in Charge of National Security added “Now with the way things are changing the economy will bounce back again, I am telling you that we are going to come around that curve and we are going to win the 2024 elections hands down.”
