The NDC was banned from operating in any of town or village in Okyeman after the party refused to apologise to the regent of the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Area for claiming that the Okyeman ‘drank water with animals’ before President Mahama came to power.

The statement, widely condemned, led to a huge demonstration by the chiefs and people of Akyem Abuakwa.

The Ashanti Regional branch of the NDC consequently issued a written apology but it was rejected by the Okyeman Council.
