The national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has denied he is behind the recent fire outbreaks in some markets in Ghana.

According to him, the NDC is a party that rather builds markets, so that people could trade and lead decent lives.

For that reason, he went on, the police should not come to the NDC for answers to mysterious fire outbreaks.

Per a Graphic.com.gh report, he added that burning and destruction of markets was not an agenda of the NDC.

In his opinion, it was not the culture of the NDC to engage in such acts to make the governing party unpopular, but the NDC would engage in a vigorous campaign to brighten its chances of wresting power from the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP).

He explained that the records of the party while in government was that, it constructed many markets and that it was not in the DNA of the NDC to encourage hooliganism and arson, saying that, “any member of the NDC who decides to engage in such a despicable act would not be shielded.”

He noted that the accusations were orchestrations by his detractors to paint him black due to his 30 years of political experience, and tarnish his image in the name of politics, to score cheap political points.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), on May 8, 2019, invited Ofosu Ampofo, to assist in investigations into some recent kidnappings and fire outbreaks.
