NDC deputy general secretary ‘hot’

The Ghana Police Service says they have commenced an investigation into a dreadful comment made by the Deputy General Secretary of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Mustafa Gbande was reported to have said in an interview on OKAY FM that – his party members must be prepared to protect their ballots in the upcoming 2024 general election.

He urged them to do so by carrying machetes or any deadly weapon to their various polling stations.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he explained that he has told the leadership of the NDC that they have to prepare in advance for the NPP ahead of the elections.

” . . they think the way to go is violence so I’ve told our leaders that if possible let’s prepare twice the NPP and wait for them, when you are going to the polling station put a cutlass in your pocket . . . if we do, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not be able to misbehave toward us.”

This, he noted is the only way to guarantee a free and fair elections.

However, the police in a statement said they would investigate Mustafa Gbandi and take legal action.

“We wish to assure the public that under our watch no one will be allowed to undermine the peace, security, law and order in our beloved country,” a portion of their statement said.
