Former Deputy Information Minister Felix Kwakye Ofosu’s supporters have caused chaos in the Central Region of Ghana. Three members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), who support Kwakye Ofosu’s bid to represent the party in the constituency, disrupted the campaign of his main opponent, Prof. Nana Ama Brown Klutse.

The supporters allegedly destroyed Klutse’s campaign vehicle and pelted other items with stones. The incident occurred after misinformation spread that the National Organiser, Joseph Yamin, was in the area to campaign for Klutse. However, Yamin was not in the region at the time and expressed shock at the reports.

It is disheartening to see such political violence in Ghana. The behaviour of Kwakye Ofosu’s supporters is unacceptable and undermines the democratic process. It is important for political parties and their supporters to engage in peaceful campaigns, and to respect the views and opinions of others. Violence should never be a means of gaining power or influence.

For the most part, Ghana has been a shining example of democracy in Africa. However, incidents like this serve as a reminder that there is still work to be done to strengthen the country’s democratic institutions. Political leaders and parties must work together to ensure that elections are free and fair, and that the rights of all citizens are respected.

In a nutshell, political violence has no place in Ghana’s democracy. We must all condemn these actions and work together to ensure that they do not happen again. It is important for political leaders and parties to set a positive example and promote peaceful campaigns, so that Ghana can continue to be a beacon of democracy on the continent.
