Ghana: NPP Pressure Group Warns Trouble Makers

A group in the Abuakwa North Constituency, calling itself 'Nana for President' (NAFOP), has warned any person or group of persons planning to cause trouble before, during and after the December elections to have a change of mind.

According to the group, despite their quest for peace and demonstration of sense of patriotism ahead of the elections, they would not fold up their arms and look on, as unscrupulous individuals take the law into their hands.

They have, therefore, indicated readiness to resist any form of oppression and intimidation as well as calling on all true supporters of the NPP to be vigilant before, during and after the elections.

This was made know at the official inauguration of the group at New-Tafo over the weekend.

The Secretary to the group, Mr. Kwasi Boahene also took on Mr. Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Information, for trying to throw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians, that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) government has removed schools under trees.

He disclosed that, the Deputy Minister of Information's observation was a complete falsehood and deliberate attempt to divert attention of Ghanaians on the free Senior High School (SHS) campaign of the NPP.

According to the Secretary of NAFOP, even though there are number of schools under trees at Osiem and Tontro- all in the constituency- the Deputy Information Minister, who has carved, a niche for telling lies, still insists the schools have been removed under the trees.
