The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has resorted to propaganda and untruths to create a false sense of insecurity in Ghana ahead of the 7 December polls, a Deputy Campaign Manager of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, has said.

“The NDC, through propaganda, is creating a false state of insecurity in the country to play on the emotions of Ghanaians for electoral gains.

“Statements by its leading members affirm this assertion”, Dr Abdul-Hamid said at a press conference.

He said the “NDC General Secretary, Aseidu Nketia, in a report dated October 11, 2020, alleged that the government was issuing over 4,000 weapons from the state armoury to over 4,000 Pro-NPP vigilantes.

“This is to create a worrying state of insecurity to deceive electorates,” he told journalists in Accra on Wednesday, 14 October 2020.

He also said the NDC’s reaction to recent activities of secessionists in the Volta Region, is full of pretence.

“The NDC’s reaction is further proof that the party only pretends to care about national security, but is quick to politicise security interventions when they see an opportunity to excite their bid.

“However, in resorting to their old tricks of mischief and falsehoods, the NDC created the impression of intimidation on NDC.”
