Mr David Prah, Eastern Regional Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that the incident that occurred at Suhum had nothing to do with the party.
He further stated that the incident has nothing to do with either supporter of Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Alan Kyeremanteng, Trade and Industry Minister, or a clash between the MP of Suhum Boafo Kojo Asante and party Executives as it is being speculated by a section of the mainstream media and social media.
He said this in an interview on Freedom Radio’s ‘’Yen Man’’ show hosted by Kwaku Aboagye Apenteng, about the incident that happened at Suhum over the weekend when, some NPP party faithful were engaged in a brawl at the funeral of one of the NPP Communicators, that led to one person being slashed on the forehead with a cutlass.
‘’What happened was a private occasion and some individuals went there to perpetuate violence and so the criminal aspect of this must be investigated and the culprits arrested and prosecuted by the security agencies ‘’ he indicated.
Mr Prah explained that the regional executives have not received any official complaint from the Suhum NPP constituency, however, as individuals they have heard of the incident that took place over the weekend at the funeral.
He indicated that per the preliminary information gathered from Suhum, the NPP in the region realised that the information reported in the media and what they ascertained on the ground had nothing to do with the NPP.
‘’We accept that the one who lost the father is a grassroots communicator of the NPP, and he invited individuals, so in that case, everyone went there as an individual so if something happened, it has nothing to do with us as a political party, so we cannot invoke our party sanctions on such people, because the event has nothing to do with the party’’ he stated.
He then indicated that the country has laws governing such indiscipline and therefore calling on the laws of the country to deal with the perpetrators because no Ghanaian has the right to cause harm to his fellow human.
