The New Patriotic Party has said it has uncovered plans by the National Democratic Congress to “actively weaponise” and destabilise the country’s democracy by creating mayhem, violence and overturn the state.
Following the leaked audio tape from the camp of the NDC, the NPP says it has exposed the opposition party's plot to unleash assassination, kidnappings and violence in an elaborate plan to disturb the peace in Ghana.
Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, February 27, 2019, the NPP communications director claimed former president John Mahama was re-elected to lead the NDC into the next elections by using “violent, extremist” tactics to become president.

“They’re weaponising their political party and put [it] on a path, literally to becoming an internal terrorist organisation. You heard them, a coordinated plan of kidnappings, physical and verbal attacks and infiltration of the security services,” Yaw Buabeng Asamoah told journalists.
Buabeng Asamoah’s accusation stemmed from the leaked audio tape which has gone viral since Tuesday night, February 26, 2019.
A voice purported to be that of the national chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo was heard raging war on the EC chairperson and threatening to kidnap family members of NPP militia groups.

“We will go after them. But not face to face. We will let them know that their lives are in danger. Our people have identified a number of them,” the voice said at a meeting with some NDC communicators.
The communications director said the noise made about the violence at the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election “was built on nothing,” adding the NDC’s “deliberate orchestrated lies and crafted events have crumbled into nothing.
“They have found themselves out; the leadership of the NDC have found themselves out. They’ve exposed themselves to the nation,” Buabeng Asamoah stated.
