The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has attributed the happenings in the eighth Parliament to the law of karma catching up with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for allegedly scheming with the Electoral Commission (EC) to steal the verdict of the people during the December 2020 general elections.
According to the NDC, what is happening in Parliament under the watchful eyes of the sitting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is the price the party has to pay for the atrocities it committed against the good people of Ghana during the last elections.
The NDC is of the view that under the current president who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, eight innocent voters lost their lives because of security heavy-handedness during the last elections.
The NDC further explained that It is the first time in the history of elections that people who set out to exercise their civic duties were killed by security operatives.
The National Organizer of the NDC, Joshua Akamba made this revelation in an interview with Iddrissu Awudu, host of the Ghana Yensom morning show on Accra 100.5 FM.
He said this is the price the NPP in government subtly has to pay for after conniving with the EC; led by its Chairperson, Madam Jean Mensah to change election results six times in favour of the sitting president.
According to him, what is happening in the eighth Parliament is a result of the atrocities the NPP committed against the good people of Ghana in the last elections.
Commenting on the purported meeting between a cousin of the President, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, and former President John Dramani Mahama at his private residence in Accra, he questioned the locus of the president’s cousin on matters of national interest.
“As a party, we have always believed that it is the likes of Gabby Otchere-Darko who are ruling the country with the president sitting aloof in the coziness of the Jubilee House,” he said.
He added that Mr Otchere-Darko’s meeting with Mr Mahama confirms their suspicion that Mr Otchere-Darko is a defacto president.
