Rev. Asante

Chairman of the National Peace Council (NPC)
Reverend Professor Emmanuel Kwaku Asante
has condemned recent comments made by
former Minister of Transport Dzifa Aku Attivor.
Mrs Attivor is reported to have told a group of
National Democratic Congress (NDC)
supporters that a New Patriotic Party (NPP)
government in 2017 will arrest some of them
just like in 2001, when the NPP assumed
office.
Speaking at the launch of ‘Ketu South for Fiifi
and Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South
Constituency, the former minister, who
resigned her position as a result of the Metro
Mass Transit bus rebranding saga, said the NPP
will arrest Ewes like her and Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey –
Member of Parliament for the Constituency –
if the Volta Region does not vote to retain the
NDC.
But in an interview on TV3’s New 360 on
Tuesday, April 26, Rev. Prof. Asante said the
comments were “divisive”, “barbaric” and
uncalled for.

“These are the things that create tension in
society and it must be condemned,” he said.
He expressed confidence in the “intelligent”
people of the Volta Region to vote not on
tribal lines but on issues.
According to him, Ms Attivor’s comments are
characteristic of politicians who have no better
message for electorates.
“It is below the belt,” the immediate past
Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of
Ghana insisted.
