NDC officials ordered to reverse curses on NPP’s Parliamentary Candidate

The Effutuakwa Traditional Council has found the executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Assin Central Constituency in guilty of violating the council’s customary regulations in the Fosu Municipality in the Central Region.

Within two weeks, they must deliver ten sheep, six boxes of Heineken Aromatic Schnapps, and GH¢10,000.00 for the necessary rituals to reverse the curses.

Kasapa News’ Yaw Boagyan reported that they are also required to visit Antoa and Assin Nyankomasi towns, whose powerful deities they invoked, to perform the necessary rituals to revoke the curses.

The Assin Fosu Queenmother, Nana Afranse IV, and Okumaneng Baffuor Asare Kyeahene II, representing the Traditional Council, stated that the directive serves as a deterrent to others.

The NDC had accused the NPP’s Parliamentary Candidate (PC) of bringing individuals from Kasoa to transfer their votes to the Assin Central Constituency.

The incensed party members slaughtered sheep to invoke the river gods, Antoa Nyama and Betinsin, to deal with anyone intending to rig the December general election in the Assin Central Constituency.

The Assin Central NDC Women’s Organizer, Agartha Yawson, led the group to invoke the dreaded deity against the NPP candidate.

However, following reports in the community that the NDC officials had invoked curses, the Party was summoned before the Traditional authorities.

The Chiefs and elders were outraged that the party officials had invoked curses, emphasizing that such acts are prohibited in the town.

“Invoking curses is not allowed on Effutuakwa land; the act of invoking curses should not have happened. It is an act that the traditional authority strongly disapproves of. If you invoke a curse and slaughter a sheep, causing blood to spill onto the ground, it signifies a call for blood. It is taboo to call for the blood of any inhabitant of this community. There are severe consequences for invoking curses, and we, as leaders of this community, do not wish to experience any calamity. That is why we have summoned you here to reverse the curses you have cast. We must appease the gods and other spirits on Effutuakwa land for what has transpired.

“As politicians, you dine together, socialize together, but when you appear on radio and TV, you act like enemies, yet we know you are friends. So why is it that in your quest for political power, you wish to harm the people of this land? We have never heard John Mahama, Bawumia, Asiedu Nketiah, or NPP General Secretary Justin Frimpong Kodua invoke a curse. So why is it that those lower down the political ladder are the ones invoking curses, willing to harm each other to gain political power?” Chief Okumaneng Baffuor Asare Kyeahene II inquired.
