The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has called on his fellow National Democratic Congress (NDC) members to be bold as the party prepares for the 2024 elections. His comments came after Abetifi Lawmaker Bryan Acheampong stated that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would never hand over power to the NDC.

Reacting to Acheampong’s comments, Sam George took to Facebook to urge his party members to ignore the “rantings of scarecrows and hype simpletons into cult status.” He went on to call for a return to the party’s “old days” and reminded his followers that the NDC is a “revolutionary party.”

However, a follower of Sam George named Nana Hesse Ogyiri replied to his post, stating that former President Jerry John Rawlings, who was instrumental in branding the NDC as a revolutionary party, is no longer with us. Ogyiri went on to suggest that the current NDC leader, John Mahama, is “toothless.”

Meanwhile, Acheampong assured members of the NPP that the economy would bounce back and that the government was working to secure a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He stated that if the NDC tried to use threats, violence, and “foolishness” in the 2024 election, the NPP would show them that they have the men to remain in power.

Acheampong’s comments have been criticized by many, with some suggesting that they were unnecessarily confrontational. However, others have praised him for his confidence in the NPP’s ability to stay in power.

As the political climate in Ghana continues to heat up ahead of the 2024 elections, it remains to be seen how the various parties will respond to each other’s comments and actions. The call for boldness from Sam George may resonate with some NDC members, but it remains to be seen how they will channel that boldness in their bid to regain power.
