A deputy communications Minister with the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has lashed out at the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) describing it as the most chaotic and disorganized political party in Ghana.
Felix Kwakye Ofosu was responding to claims by the NPP that his party induced some smaller political parties to speak in their favor at the just ended stakeholders’ forum on the country’s voter register.
A two-day stakeholders’ forum by the Electoral Commission ended on Friday as political parties outline their views about the controversial issue.
The opposition NPP is spearheading the call for a new register while the ruling NDC and some other smaller parties are against it.
But speaking on Kumasi-based Angel Fm political talk show Platform, Kwakye Ofosu told host Kojo Marfo that the NPP is only interested in wasting the precious time of Ghanaians like it did in the 2012 elections landmark case at the Supreme Court.
The deputy minister questioned the NPP’s basis for making the claims and charged them to prove to Ghanaians the accuracy of such claims.
He said the open forum was not only meant for political parties but some other civil society groups like the Institute for Economic Affairs(IEA) and Imani Ghana all made their contributions at the two-day forum.
He admonished the NPP to put their house in order and stop making frivolous comments and allegations.
Kwakye Ofosu chronicled myriad of recent happenings in the NPP and described it as the most disorganized and chaotic political party in Ghana.
He also challenged the opposition party to come clear on their allegations of the voter register bloated with names of minors and foreigners.
