Asiedu Nketia defends Attivor's alleged tribal remarks

The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Asiedu Nketia, has called on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to stop condemning Dzifa Attivor over alleged tribal comments she made.

Speaking to Accra-based Rainbow Radio, Nketia said  the former transport minister should not be attacked over remarks which he said seemed to be true.

He said it was rather the NPP which must either deny or accept the claim made against the party.

According to him, only people who hate to speak the truth will be worried by the former minister's remarks.

"Are people worried because Madam Dzifa Attivor was speaking the truth or not? If you hate to speak the truth, then you will continue to be worried … The woman said 'vote for us because when the NPP come to power, they will jail all Voltarians', citing examples ... so let the NPP come out to defend themselves."

Attivor provoked outrage when she said during the launch of a group called ‘Ketu South For Fifi And Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South district of the Volta Region on Tuesday, that the NPP targeted only members of her ethnic group for prosecution.
