NDC youth accuses NPP of an evil agenda against Ofosu Ampofo
The Youth Wing of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) of new plots to tarnish the image of its National Chairman Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
Some news portals have published stories accusing the NDC officer of advising the youth of the party to spill blood as we prepare for the 2020 polls.
However, the NDC youth in its statement described the statement as false and an agenda to denigrate political opponents.
”We wish to state emphatically that the story is a fabrication mischievously concocted by the portal. This is not surprising especially because the NPP’s 2016 strategy of lying and crafting fake news churned through discredited news portals is the major agenda of this failed Akufo Addo Presidency again for the 2020 election campaign season.
For the records, no meeting was held between the National Chairman and the Youth Wing of the party. The fact remains that some of the youth organizers only came around to witness the presentation of PPEs by the party to the drivers union in the full glare of the public and the media. How does this pass for a secret meeting?”
The statement added: ”The Youth Wing is not bothered by McManu’s led campaign team as the story put it. McManu is a spent force. He was NPP’s national Chairman when they lost power in 2008. He was also integral in the 2012 election which saw Akufo Addo lose again.
President John Dramani Mahama will win the 2020 Presidential Polls on the strength of his superior vision and the resilience of the NDC under the Leadership of Chairman Ofosu Ampofo.
The Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress and by extension the party itself, believes in press freedom and supports the work of hardworking journalists. What we will not tolerate are works of fake news and media machinations against the party, our leadership and our members. We will continue to support all pressmen and provide credible information pertaining to our activities. We expect the media to reciprocate our goodwill by publishing accurate information,” it said.
