Politics: NPP Supporters Destroy NDC Flags in Suhum

There is confusion in the Suhum constituency between the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) over the removal of NDC flags and banners.

Sources say, former President Dramani John Mahama was initially invited by the organizers of the traditional event but some NPP elements kicked against the move forcing the cancellation of the invitation.

Owing to this, the NDC’s constituency executives hoisted the party’s flags and John Mahama’s banners in Suhum township to welcome the former President.

But the flags and banners were violently removed by thugs deployed by the MCE, Margret Darkwa.

A statement by the National Democratic Congress of Suhum constituency Monday stated that the party has “learnt with great disappointment, to the destroying of NDC’s flags hoisted on the principal street of Suhum township by NPP thugs led by the Suhum MCE.

Before our people could say anything, these NPP hooligans with the MCE visibly involved, started destroying our party flags”.

The statement issued by Dove Maxwell, constituency communication officer further stated that” NPP is very much aware of the humiliating defeats that await them as we inch closer to December 7, 2024, General elections hence have adopted this childish and disgraceful tactic just to intimidate our people and scare them from coming out in their numbers to vote for President John Dramani Mahama and our Parliamentary Candidates on election day

“However, we will be forced to retaliate in double measure if they don’t put a stop to these acts”.

The statement further said “We have constantly challenged them on issues and called for a comparison of achievements of the two parties. Suhum deserves mature politicking and campaigning off and on issues. Suhum does not deserve this needless instigation and antagonistic attitude.

We call on the security agencies to urgently investigate this series of attacks and appropriately call to order the perpetrators and assigns in other to boost the confidence of Constituents in the constituency and the region at large.

Suhum Constituency is a very peaceful place, hence this shameful act being executed by the NPP and the MCE to destabilise the seeming peace enjoyed should be of great concern to all and sundry”.
