The Greater Accra regional branch of the National Democratic Congress has sent a warning to the opposition New Patriotic Party to call their aggressive members to order or face a violent response of their own.
Their statement was in reaction to the Sunday clashes between members of the NDC who were on a health walk and the security personnel of NPP at Nana Akufo-Addo's Nima residence. The violent confrontation resulted in gunshots, to which the Nima Police quickly arrived to stop the situation from escalating.
The NPP accused the NDC of starting the conflict by throwing stones into the compound of the NPP flag-bearer who was at his residence at the time of the incident.
However the NDC has come out to debunk the accusations stating that, it was the fault of the NPP members who were displeased to see the NDC on their health walk, passing in front the residence.
The Greater Accra regional organizer of the NDC Anthony Nukpenu, released a statement which was a warning to the NPP, saying, " We the people of Greater Accra had a peaceful health walk, we got out of our houses around 5:00am and we never gave guns to any of our supporters. So we feel that the statement that was issued by the NPP is full of blatant lies and they must be ashamed of themselves for wanting to plunge this country into chaos and we the NPP will not allow that to happen."
Mr Nukpenu further added that, “We are here to assure the Ghanaian public and its entity that we the NDC members are peace loving people and will do all possible to maintain a peaceful atmosphere; we will therefore take any foolishness of the NPP in this region from henceforth. We are sending this strong signal to the NPP to caution their hooligans to refrain from any more attack on our party members in the region. They will face swift response from our men should they dare to any stupid move from today,”
