The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is calling for the arrest of the Abetifi MP, Bryan Acheampong, for stating that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not hand over power to the NDC. The party claims that Acheampong’s comment poses a threat to democracy and must be dealt with accordingly. The NDC also demands that the current President, Akufo-Addo, intervenes in the matter to prevent tensions from escalating.

In response, the National Organiser of the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye, has declared his party’s support for Acheampong’s comment. Boakye cited economic stabilization in the country as a reason for the NPP’s confidence that they will not hand over power to the NDC in 2024.

However, Dr. Emmanuel Akwetey, Executive Director of the Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG), has called for Acheampong to be invited for questioning. He argues that the comment, made by a minister and member of parliament, cannot be taken lightly and that public questioning would serve as a caution to others.

The ‘never handing over power’ comment has stirred up tensions between the two major political parties in Ghana. It is important for the government and other stakeholders to address the issue and prevent any potential threat to the country’s democracy.
