The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on the Police to take a relook at its position on Bryan Acheampong’s comments. The party’s Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, signed the press statement on Friday, April 21. The party contends that the comments made by the Minister for Agriculture have criminal tendencies. The NDC has, therefore, called on the police to act on the matter with the speed and urgency with which they acted in apprehending and prosecuting other political actors for making similar statements in recent times.

Acheampong’s incendiary comments have been deemed “reckless, dangerous, instigation and unparliamentary” by the NDC. The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has, in turn, petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Police Service to arrest ex-president John Mahama. According to the National Organiser of the party, Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as ‘Nana B,’ the NPP wants the CID to arrest the National Chairman of the opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia. Mr. Asiedu Nketia’s comments are also believed to portend great danger to the peace and stability of the country.

The Police Service has engaged the two major political parties on two new security measures instituted to help maintain the peace as the country nears the 2024 general election. The NDC’s petition follows Acheampong’s comments that the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not hand over power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC). According to him, the NPP will use whatever means necessary to remain in power in the 2024 general election. He added that if the NDC dares to use threats and brute force in the 2024 election, the NPP will show them that they have the men.

In a nutshell, the NDC has called for the Police to reconsider its position on Bryan Acheampong’s incendiary comments. The NPP has, in turn, petitioned the CID to arrest ex-president John Mahama and the National Chairman of the opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia. The Police Service has engaged the two major political parties on two new security measures to help maintain the peace as the country nears the 2024 general election.
