Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, Director of Elections and IT for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), compared the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) recently concluded super delegates conference to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in terms of warfare.
This comes after the election-related violence that was prevalent in several regions of the nation.
“NPP super delegates elections worse than Russia-Ukraine war,” he tweeted.
For his part, former president John Dramani Mahama urged well-intentioned Ghanaians to denounce the assaults.
He was surprised that an internal conflict might lead to violent deeds.
He views it as the legacy of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, particularly in light of the violence that occurred during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election and the murders of eight Ghanaians during the 2020 elections.
This was announced in a few tweets by the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s 2024 flagbearer shortly after the ruling party went to the polls and chose five of its ten candidates for its November Presidential Primary.
Attacks on several competitors ruined the workout on August 26th. For instance, Ali Zakaria, an agent for Alan Kyerematen in the North East Region, was assaulted and had swollen eyes as a result.
The Upper West Region representative for Ken Agyapong is said to have been driven from the polling place, infuriating the Assin Central MP.
Mr. Mahama said that they should be denounced because the activity was supposed to be peaceful.
“Violence has become the new normal for the NPP,” he tweeted.
“Acts of violence during what should be a peaceful civic exercise must be condemned by all well-meaning Ghanaians.
“More so, in an internal contest involving persons who belong to the same party.”
To run against John Dramani Mahama in 2024, the ruling party will choose one of Dr. Bawumia, Mr. Kyerematen, Mr. Agyapong, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Boakye Agyarko, or Francis Addai-Nimoh.
