Ranking member on Parliament’s Defence and Interior, James Agalga, has strongly condemned the comments made by Bryan Acheampong, the Food and Agric Minister and Member of Parliament for Abetifi, regarding the NPP not handing over power to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2025.

In a statement, Mr Agalga expressed concern that Mr Acheampong’s statement reflects the NPP’s tendency to use violence to disrupt elections. He stated that the conclusions drawn from Bryan Acheampong’s statement manifest the overall conduct of Akufo-Addo’s government’s approach to issues bordering on the impartiality and credibility of the Electoral Commission moving into the 2024 elections.

According to Mr Agalga, the NPP is prepared to use violence to disrupt the upcoming elections if it becomes apparent that they will lose. This statement, he believes, poses a direct and grave threat to Ghana’s democracy and should not be taken lightly. Mr Agalga called on the Inspector General of Police, Dr Akuffo Dampare, to arrest Bryan Acheampong and cause his prosecution for engaging in conduct that has the potential to undermine the peace and security of the country.

It is crucial for political leaders to refrain from using violent and inflammatory language in their political campaigns, as it can lead to civil unrest and put the country’s peace and stability at risk. The upcoming elections must be conducted in a peaceful and transparent manner, and all political parties must work together to ensure that the will of the people is respected. As citizens, it is our responsibility to speak out against any conduct that undermines our democracy and threatens our country’s security.
