General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fiifi Kwetey, says the NDC will not follow the New Patriotic Party’s deceptive way of capturing power in 2016.
According to the National officer of the opposition NDC, it is the only way the party can ensure the 2024 election is free and fair.
Speaking to Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie on Okay FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Gbande said when you have a Cutlass in your pocket at the polling station, “nobody can misbehave towards you”.
According to him, he has advised the party leadership on the need to adopt the cutlasses approach.
“I have told the leadership of the NDC that we have to prepare in advance for the NPP ahead of the elections. when we are going to the polling station, let’s carry with us cutlasses. if we do, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not be able to misbehave toward us.” He said.
Mr. Gbande’s declaration comes after NDC 2024 flagbearer John Mahama declared boot for boot.
Mr. Mahama called on members of the NDC to remain vigilant during the 2024 general elections so as not to allow rigging to happen.
“The NPP should not even think of rigging the elections because the NDC would mark them boot for boot,” he said.
Speaking with executives of the party in the Abuakwa South, Abuakwa North, Fanteakwa South, and Fanteakwa North constituencies in the Eastern Region, he entreated them to be resolute and resist any move by the NPP to rig the 2024 general elections.
