Mahama is a leader of a thugs party – NPP youth organizer

Estimated read time 3 min read

Salam Mustapha, the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, has accused former President John Dramani Mahama of leading a violent party. He said the former president’s comments that “violence has become the new normal for the NPP in any electoral contest” is a mark of hypocrisy.

Following the conclusion of the NPP’s super delegates congress on Saturday, August 26, which was marked by pockets of violence, Mahama said the party is now synonymous with electoral violence.

He said “Acts of violence during what should be a peaceful civic exercise must be condemned by all well-meaning Ghanaians. Such brutal acts have no place in modern society, especially during an internal contest among persons who belong to the same party and have known each other for many years. This is detrimental to democracy.”

Mr Mahama added, “The barbarity of Ayawaso West Wuogon in 2019 and the murder of eight innocent Ghanaians during the 2020 elections will forever be a blot on the legacy of President Akufo-Addo and VP Mahamudu Bawumia”.

But that did not go down well with Salam Mustapha who rebutted with strong words during an interview with Citi News. He said the NDC is no saint when it comes to electoral violence and pointed out incidents that occurred during the opposition party’s congress in Cape Coast to elect its youth leaders.

Mustapha said, Mahama “is the leader of such a violent party. When they went to Cape Coast to elect their youth and women organisers, they chased each other with machetes and guns. Ayawaso West Wuogon was an electoral violence that involved two parties, NDC and NPP.

“There is no orchestration anywhere. You see hypocrisy is engrained in the DNA of the NDC and former president John Dramani Mahama. He was president when we went to Talensi, Talensi was a blood bath, and he was the beneficiary of it. Maybe he has forgotten but I am clearing his eyes that he should remove those pegs of hypocrisy and he will begin to see very well.

“I keep telling the NDC that the war drums they keep singing, the war drums they keep beating, you don’t know how people will prepare for it. I am the National Youth Organiser of this party if you keep telling me this 2024 election you see it as war, I will also prepare and come for you,” he warned, adding, “I will never sit down for any man to lord over me. It will never happen.”
