JM Speaks on by-election violence at Ayawaso West



Former President John Dramani Mahama has condemned the violent attacks and intimidation of supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Thursday’s by-election in the Ayawaso West constituency in Accra.

Mr Mahama described the unfortunate development as “a sad day for Ghana’s democracy”.The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), unleashed terror and violence on supporters of the NDC at the residence of its parliamentary candidate, Mr Delali Kwasi Brempong with several round of ammunition fired into his residence.

The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Hon. Samuel George, was also brutally assaulted by pro-government vigilante forces.Elsewhere in the constituency, masked gunmen clothed in police uniforms, armed to the teeth and riding in military grade vehicles violated supporters and members of the NDC, injuring
scores of them.

Addressing delegates of the NDC in the Adaklu constituency as part of his flagbearership campaign tour of the Volta Region, Mr Mahama said “it is unacceptable that a by-election is
characterised by such violence and intimidation with many of our comrades brutalised and injured”.

He warned that as a democratic party, the NDC would resist any attempt by the Akufo-Addo government to subvert Ghana’s constitution as it happened during Thursday’s by-election.

Mr Mahama is suspending his tour to return to Accra to visit the victims of the NPP’s rampaging thugs.For his part, the Member of Parliament for Adaklu, Mr Kwame Agbodza also expressed outrage at what happened in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency
