President urged to restore sanity

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has condemned the dastardly lynching of Maxwell Mahama, a serving Captain of the Ghana Armed Forces, near Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.


“We share in the pain of the Ghana Armed Forces and express our heartfelt sympathy to the Chief of Defense Staff, all his officers and men, who are at this moment seething with grief,” a statement copied The Ghanaian Times in Accra said.


“We also send our utmost heartfelt condolences to the widow, children, parents and family of the late Captain Maxwell Mahama: an officer and a gentleman.”


However, the party blamed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the killing of Captain Mahama, adding “ever since President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC handed over a peaceful Ghana to President Akufo-Addo’s New Patriotic Party (NPP) on January 7, 2017 the nation has known no peace.”


“Under the direct supervision of President Akufo-Addo, the state has watched and sponsored its goon squads to unleash wanton mayhem on innocent Ghanaians,” the statement added.


The statement recounted the beating of a police officer at the Flagstaff House, molestation of Ashanti Regional Security Co-ordinator, disruption of a court process, the burning of toll booths and the harassment of civil servants as some instances of lawlessness under President Akufo-Addo.




It said: “The NDC will sooner than later if this level of impunity persists, be compelled to engage in a legitimate social revolution to protest the inability of President Akufo-Addo to protect the good people of this country.”


“If it is the case that President Akufo-Addo has come to the realisation that he is unable to manage the affairs of the state, he should do the honourable thing and resign so we get a more competent leader to lead Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana,” the statement said.


It said for the avoidance of doubt, the NDC shall “resist oppressors rule with all our will and might forevermore”.
