NPP wants a “state of Armageddon” – Mornah
The Chairman of the People’s National Convention, (PNC) Bernard Mornah says the New Patriotic Party is likely to plunge the country into violence if plans by the party to declare its own election results are not condemned.
According to Mornah, comments by the campaign manager of the NPP Peter Mac Manu are “distasteful and disgraceful”.
Mr. Mac Manu speaking to a group of supporters in Takoradi in the Western region boldly stated that the NPP would defy every authority in the country including the Inspector General of Police and the Electoral Commission to declare its own election results.
“In this election, the NPP will also declare our own results,” Mr. Mac Manu said amid shouts and cheers from party supporters in Takoradi.
The former Chairman of the NPP added: “...The IGP cannot stop us. Whether you are the Electoral Commission, whether you are a police or security officer, whether you are a polling agent, whether you are a chief, you cannot stop NPP from declaring results.”
His comments have been widely condemned by a section of the public with some institutions calling on the NPP scribe to retract and apologise for the comments.
In an interview with Starr News, Mornah said “the NPP is suggesting a state of Armageddon...I think that it is distasteful and disgraceful that such a statement would come from no mean a person but the chairman of the campaign manager of the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party.
“I think that the NPP itself must call its own to order so as not to jeopardise our fledgling democracy.”
