General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Asiedu Nketia, has said that 'all-die-be-die' is in Nana Akufo-Addo's DNA.
His comments follow the shooting incident which occurred in La-Bawaleshie during the Ayawaso by-election.
In a report that YEN.com.gh sighted on Peacefmonline.com, Asiedu Nketia in an interview with Okay FM, made some allegations against the president.
He noted that the violence which greeted the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election is a fulfillment of President Akufo-Addo’s campaign promise made to Ghanaians prior to the 2012 elections.
“What happened at Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election is a fulfillment of Akufo-Addo’s campaign promise regarding the ‘all-die-be-die’ mantra," he alleged
"He said he showed us something small in Atiwa. There was a by-election in Atiwa and same by-election took place in Ayawaso West Wuogon,” he slammed.
To him, Ghanaians made a huge mistake buying into the ‘fake’ apologetic nature that President Akufo-Addo posed during the 2016 elections.
Meanwhile John Mahama, a presidential aspirant of the NDC went tough in his responding comments to the Ayawaso incident.
He noted that his party, the NDC will match the NPP boot for boot if similar violence erupts during the 2020 general elections.
According the former president, the NPP must be ashamed of themselves for deploying violent tactics during the by-election.
He opined that if this happens in the 2020 general elections, the NDC would be forced to respond with violence as well.
Concerning Mahama's comments, some NPP members and officials of some civil organizations have condemned them.
They claimed Mahama's comments could plunge Ghana into chaos during the 2020 elections thus he should apologize.
In John Mahama's defense, the Commissioner for CHRAJ, Joseph Whittal has said that it is unfair for some Ghanaians to call on Mahama to apologize.
He said even though the taste of Mahama's comments are not positive, the National Security should be called to apologize instead.
