Any person who tries to intimidate or attack members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not be let off the hook, Member of Parliament (MP) for Nsawam/Adoagyiri Frank Annoh Dompreh has cautioned.
His comments come in the wake of last week’s assault on the Loyal Ladies of NPP at Suhum by some thugs believed to be affiliated to the governing National Democratic Congress when the ladies were there to canvass for votes for NPP flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo.
Mr Dompreh said NDC parliamentary candidates who were intimidating members of the NPP and employing underhand means to enter parliament should desist from the act because the house is for decent people.
He added that even though the NPP had not reacted violently to the attacks on their members in the region, the NDC must not think that they would have it easy in the coming days.
He cautioned the NDC parliamentary candidate for Suhum, Margaret Ansei, to desist from instigating attacks on members of the NPP in the Eastern Region else they will meet them squarely.
“Parliament is not a place for physical assault; parliament is a place for intellectual discourse, and it is place where we abide by laws. I want the lady to understand that if they dare us, we the people of Suhum, Nsawam, Ayensuano, and environs will retaliate,” he stressed.
Mr Dompreh issued the warning when he addressed members of the NPP in the Suhum constituency after a health walk dubbed 'Walk for Change'.
For his part, MP for Suhum, Frederick Opare, urged supporters to be calm and not allow themselves to be provoked to react with violence as a result of the attacks on the NDC.
He, however, cautioned the NDC to also desist from the attacks on the NPP else they may be forced to respond when the situation becomes unbearable.
“Nobody has monopoly over violence. If they do not desist, we will be forced retaliate,” he threatened.
