The National Democratic Congress's moral rights have been called into question by the New Patriotic Party over the accusations thrown at the NPP for post-election violence and unlawful takeovers of state facilities.
The NPP has said that all forms of political violence need to be condemned, as such the behavior of the NDC playing victim in the matter comes as a surprise.
According to the Deputy General Secretary of the party, Nana Obiri Boahen, his party has denounced these acts of violence and have urged the police to take control of the situation.
In a press conference earlier this week, the NPP expressed disappointment in executives of the NDC throwing accusations at them and playing the victim.
He expressed surprise at the NDC's stand on the issue, however, noting that they also engaged in such unlawful actions when their party came into power in 2009.
Obiri Boahen said, "the police did not effect one arrest. Ghana has not forgotten this. And listen to who is playing victim; Kofi Portuphy of all people? The institutions of state were all bent to do the bidding of the NDC then.”
"It is most shocking to have Mr. Kofi Portuphy lead the charge against the NPP about seizures. The NDC National Chairman was one of the principal persons who masterminded or conducted to use foot soldiers who descended on state institutions and facilities. In 2009, Mr. Portuphy led the NDC to physically take over NADMO and impose himself on NADMO until the late President Mills formally requested him to take over. Indeed, Mr. Portuphy was the one who signed the dismissal letter of Mr. Asiedu Akrofi. That is the nature and character of the person who now is charging the heat from his nostrils on the shoulder of Ghanaians and he wants the rest of us to keep mute over his own lack of morality."
The NPP deputy general secretary further warned the NDC executives, stating that if their constant jabs at President Akufo-Addo did not cease, there would be counter-attacks from their end.
"As for Kofi Portuphy, Asiedu Nketia and Koku Anyidoho and their gang, we shall caution that from now on, if they throw mud on the president in whom we unprecedentedly, overwhelmingly, majority Ghanaians reposed their confidence in, we will pay them back in equal measure. Enough is enough; the rains must fall on their ravings and ranting…," he said.
