National Communications Officer of opposition National Democratic Congress ( NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has reacted to assurances by President Akufo-Addo that there will not be any strife or conflict after the 2020 general elections despite the ‘violent’ posturing of the opposition.
He asserts that a peace-loving John Mahama would not take moral lessons from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who Mr Gyamfi alleges, personifies violence.
President Akufo-Addo, speaking at the 20th anniversary celebration of the founding of the Tertiary Students Confederation (TESCON), on Tuesday, 18th February, 2020, in Ho, in the Volta Region, declared that there will be no strife or violence despite claims by former President Mahama to the effect that there could be strife after the December 7, 2020 elections because the Electoral Commission(EC) has refused to listen to those opposed to the compilation of a new voters register and is going head to compile it.
But Sammy Gyamfi is of the view that it is rather President Akufo-Addo who has a disposition of violence and so former President John Mahama would not take moral lessons from him.
“Since when has Akufo-Addo evinced any semblance of a peaceful disposition? This is a man who is famed for being full of tension and violence both as an opposition leader and President. And yet today he says what?
Well, President Akufo-Addo should be told, that the peaceful and humble John Mahama will not take peace lessons from a man who personifies violence. He will not take peace lessons from the founder and commander-in-Chief of the NPP’s Delta Forces, Invisible forces, Bolgatanga Bulldogs, Kandahar Boys and Volta Crocodiles who have unleashed mayhem on our courts, the police and innocent Ghanaians since 2008,” he wrote in a post sighted by MyNewsGh.com
Mr Gyamfi accused the President of having supervised the brutalisation of citizens during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
“Never! The NDC will not take moral lessons from the man who supervised the state-sponsored brutalization of innocent Ghanaians at Ayawaso West Wuogon and has till date refused to bring the culprits to book. We will never take moral lessons from a brothel,” he asserted.
