- Aggrieved members of the opposition NDC are threatening to curse corrupt part executives
- The youth group has linked their defeat in the elections to issues related to corruption
Call it a witch-hunt against corruption, an aggrieved youth group of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is threatening to invoke the wrath of gods upon any NDC executive who engaged in profiteering during the December 7 elections.
Members of this group, headed by one Seth Okyere are to call on the Antoa deity of the Ashanti region if executives of the party do not own up.
According to the group, some members of the NDC embezzled party funds provided by the former president John Mahama – a scourge they blame on the defeat of the party in the 2016 polls.
“On Monday, we are going to release a press statement to expose all those who ‘chopped’ campaign cash. After the press release, we will summon them to the Antoa river, another river in the Volta Region, and one outside the country to punish or possibly kill all those who spent campaign cash, because their action resulted in our painful defeat,” he fumed.
The concerns raised by these NDC executives follow similar concerns over corruption raised by the founder of the party, Jerry Rawlings during, before and after the elections.
Jerry Rawlings strongly believes that the plights of the NDC are largely to be blamed on Mahama’s failure to tackle issues of gross embezzlement in his administration.
Meanwhile, the Kwesi Botchway report which was set up to tackle the actual cause of Mahama’s defeat has made mention of issues as the abuse of incumbency and also the failure on the part of Mahama to put his ministers in check.
