NPP scribe warns public against defacing party posters

Agona Swedru, Aug 31, GNA -Mr Henry Taliskis, Agona West Constituency Secretary of the NPP, has warned members of opposing parties to desist from destroying and disfiguring the party's flags and posters.

He said NPP would not hesitate to hand over perpetrators to the law enforcing agencies when caught.

Mr Taliskis gave the warning when he spoke to the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday at Agona Swedru over the destruction of the party's flags and defacing of its posters, particularly in the Swedru township.

He said the national, regional and constituency executives of the party do not want to offend any Ghanaian before, during and after the December general election, and urged NPP supporters to conduct their campaign in peace.

"The NPP will always respect the code of conduct signed by political parties," he said, adding that it would conduct its electioneering campaign devoid of rancour, insults and acts of intimidation against its opponents.

Mr Taliskis urged the supporters and members of the party to rally behind the party's flagbearer, Mr J.A. Kufuor, and its parliamentary candidate, Mr Samuel Obodai, to win the election.

Nana Kofi Eku, Constituency Treasurer, noted that mistakes that occurred in the last election had been identified and rectified, adding that the NDC would lose its parliamentary seat. The NPP, he said, has capable men to put the ailing economy back on track.
