Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has denied making tribalistic remarks during a recent NDC retreat in the Volta Region, claiming the charges are a deliberate attempt by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to damage his name and manipulate public opinion.
This follows a video circulating on social media that claimed to show him making disparaging statements against Ashantis and Ewes during the retreat.
In a statement, he refuted the charges, saying the NPP’s use of divisive practices including religion and tribal politics revealed a feeling of desperation, and that “their reliance on deception and distortion suggests a belief that these tactics are the only means to cling to power”.
He went on to say that the NPP’s charges were false and intended to take advantage of political conditions.
“These accusations not only lack merit but also are a deliberate attempt to tarnish my reputation and manipulate public perception.
“Despite these base and vile efforts, Ghanaians will stand united, regardless of tribe and religion. Divisive tactics will continue to fail,” he said.
He reaffirmed his commitment to a unified and thriving Ghana.
He also asked well-meaning Ghanaians to see the NPP’s desperation and treat such publications with the derision they deserve.
