The National Democratic Congress (NDC) party branch in the Effutu Constituency has condemned what it describes as the overpolitisation of the ECOWAS session in Winneba, Western Region.
A maiden organization of ECOWAS parliamentary meeting is being held in Winneba this week with the Parliament of Ghana being a key sponsor of the event.
According to the Effutu NDC, it has observed with keen eyes and share reservations about the conduct of the political initiators of the programme.
According to the party, the programme has been politicised especially with the wearing of T-Shirts of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as well as the display of other materials of the ruling governing party.
“Further worried we are as a party, is the over politicization of the session, which has not been the case in previous times in other West African nations. The wearing of NPP political party’s T-shirts and paraphernalia, obviously whittles the unity, beauty and motive behind the organization of the session in Winneba.
“We perceive what we have noticed so far in the constituency as a political event than an ECOWAS parliamentary session to discuss, debate and deliberate on policies that affects the wellbeing of the ordinary West African citizen,” a statement from the NDC in Effutu shared on Wednesday.
As the meetings continue, the Effutu Constituency NDC is calling on stakeholders to intervene to check the conducts of political actors and the future consequences of their ill-motives, which wasn’t the situation before their assumption of office.
