Bryan Acheampong’s statement echoes NPP’s propensity to use violence to disrupt election -James Agalga

The ranking member on Parliament’s Defence and Interior has condemned the Abetifi MP, Bryan Acheampong’s comment about not handing over power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a statement, James Agalga said that Mr Acheampong’s statement echoes the propensity of the NPP to use violence to disrupt elections.

“If one unpacks Bryan Acheampong’s statement, two irresistible conclusions will be arrived at; First, the NPP is hell-bent on subverting the will of the Ghanaian people in order to perpetuate their stay in power even when they lose the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections which is almost certain given its abysmal performance in government and the pain, suffering and hardship they have inflicted upon Ghanaians.

“Secondly, the NPP is prepared to use violence to disrupt the impending elections if it becomes apparent that it will lose,” he stated.

His comment comes after the Food and Agric Minister, Bryan Acheampong says the New Patriotic Party will not hand over power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2025.

He added that if the NDC dares to use threats, and brute force in the 2024 election, the NPP) will show them that they have the men.

According to him, the NDC will collapse and the NPP we will show them that “we have the men”.

Mr Acheampong said this will never happen and that the NPP will stand on a platform to hand over power to the NDC.

However, Mr Agalga noted that the conclusions drawn from Bryan Acheampong’s ominous statement manifest the overall conduct of Akufo-Addo’s government’s approach to issues bordering on the impartiality and credibility of the Electoral Commission moving into the 2024 elections.

He added that the “recent appointment by President Akufo-Addo of Dr Peter Appiahene, Hajia Salina Ahmed Tijani and Rev. Ofori Boateng who are known activists of the NPP is consistent with Bryan Acheampong’s effusion.”

He went on to say that the Abetifi MP’s conduct poses a direct and grave threat to Ghana’s democracy, adding that he must be held accountable.

As a result, Mr Agalga called on the Inspector General of Police, Dr Akuffo Dampare to arrest Bryan Acheampong and cause his prosecution for engaging in conduct that has the potential to undermine the peace and security of our country.
