National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has reacted to a leaked tape making headlines in the media purporting that he has called for an attack on the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Jean Mensa.
The National Chairman says, the purported tape was a strategy used by the New Patriotic Party to distract the NDC from focusing on regaining political power in the 2020 general election.
Speaking at a mini-rally held at Elwak after the party's vivtory walk, he said he has been in politics for almost 30 years and not once had it been said of him, to have verbally assaulted somebody or called for attack on anyone.
“I have been in politics for almost 30 years there is no evidence that I have involved myself in any violence or spoken against anybody” he said.
He assured party members of the party’s focus, saying, the leadership of the party was in control and would ensure that they worked together to bring the party back to power come 2020.
Reacting to a call made by the NPP for his resignation, the Ofosu Ampofo assured those present that he was a man of peace and thatat hi hands were clean.
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.
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.
