The General Secretary of the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia says Ghana will be an interesting place to live under the leadership of Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom.
The comment comes on the back of calls by the politician-cum-businessman that leaders of political parties must held responsible for violence perpetrated by their supporters.
“The nation will be an interesting place to live in under Paa Kwesi Nduom’s Presidency if that’s the way he thinks. That when an adult citizen commits an offence you go look for the parent and punish him and leave the person, what about people who have lost their parents? I don’t agree with his mode of punishment but I entirely agree with the suggestion that people who commit electoral offences ought to be punished and a citizen after 18 years ought to be held responsible for his or her own conduct. So it shouldn’t be necessarily visited on the party. I’m not sure any party leadership will order the membership to go and behave the way maybe some of them behave throughout the country, it’s not possible” he said.Ahead of the November general elections political parties have been charged to eschew from violence as stakeholders as the Peace Council predicts that a much peaceful general election best lies on the resolve of all political parties to maintain peace and tolerance.
