The First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Eastern Region, Alhaji Umar Bodinga is alleging that some elements of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are printing President Akufo-Addo and NPP’s T-shirt for vigilante activities.
According to him, NPP executives in the Eastern Region had intelligence that NDC executives are printing fifty thousand (50,000) NPP T-shirts to cause mayhem in the coming days.
“We had an intelligence that some NDC members are printing 50,000 NPP T-shirt for vigilante activities” he said on Accra based Neat FM.
He accused members of the NDC of being behind vigilante activities ongoing in the country after the 2016 general election to make President Akufo-Addo and NPP unpopular.
“President Nana Addo is deeply worried about the activities of the vigilante groups but NDC want to make Nana Addo unpopular. We know the NDC executives are behind vigilante activities in this country after the December 2016 general elections” he stressed.
About 20 attacks under the aegis of vigilante groups allied to the NPP party have taken place in Ghana after the December 2016 general polls.
But Alhaji Umar Bodinga warned the NDC members to refrain from their actions else they will meet them boot for boot.
He said the matter is yet to be reported to the police.
However, the NDC’s Eastern regional chairman, Bismarck Tawiah Boateng denied the allegations insisting the NDC is not responsible for vigilante activities in the region.
“How can we print 50, 000 t-shirts to cause mayhem. The NDC is not behind any vigilante groups. They only want to divert attention from the ailing economy. We won’t take the NPP serious because we are only interested in moving our party forward and not divide it” he noted.
