The Deputy Campaign Manager of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, has called on stakeholders including the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to place peace and stability ahead of the elections.
He made the call at a press conference held in Accra yesterday. “As indicated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, efforts have been made by the relevant State security agencies to ensure that the sanctity of the elections is safeguarded. Hence, this election will undoubtedly pass the test, and Ghana will again emerge victorious,”, he said.
Dr Abdul-Hamid, urged all Ghanaians, especially, Civil Society Organisations (CSO), the National Peace Council, leaders of religious organisations and Chiefs, to denounce any plan by any political party to mislead Ghanaians and to create terror and panic in the country. He said the NPP picked up signals that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was planning to reject the results of the 2020 general election.
He further stated that the NDC intended to do that by unleashing a series of attacks on the basis of a non-existent collusion between the Electoral Commission (EC) and the governing to rig the 2020 general election.He added that the NDC has also set out to project the EC as not credible, incompetent and also create a false sense of insecurity to hoodwink the electorate.The NPP Deputy Campaign Manager’s claims were evidenced by the NDC’s continual attacks on the EC, the integrity of its processes and persistent doomsday sensational proclamations.
