Credible information reaching the quarters of the Sekondi Constituency of the National
Democratic Congress indicates that, the daily guide newspaper intends to publish a story in its Monday 22nd August,2016 edition about the president’s visit to Sekondi Zongo on Thursday 18th August, 2016.It will be alleged in that publication that,the N.D.C. has forcefully closed down the Zongo office of the N.P.P. and threatened to vandalize its party vehicle.These among other false claims,are supposed to be the subject of the said publication.
We wish to call on all well meaning Ghanains to disregard that falsehood and treat it with the contempt that it deserves.
The daily guide newspaper and the N.P.P. having noticed the overwhelming endorsement of president John Mahama by the good people of sekondi- Takoradi,are seriousely scheming to dent the image of the N.D.C. with this publication.The facts are as follows.
1. Our major concern on that day was how to deal with the over 3,000 residents of Zongo, including chiefs and imams who welcomed and openly endorsed president Mahama,and not the few N.P.P. boys who came there to forment trouble.
2.Even as we know that,the N.P.P. deliberately packed their branded party car close to the venue of the programme ostensibly to draw our attention,we never engaged them.
3.President Mahama came and left Sekondi Zongo peacefully without any incident.
Lastly,we would like to call on the N.P.P. and daily guide to desist from peddling falsehood if they don’t have any meaningful message for Ghanains.The constituents of sekondi have clearly exhibited their resolve to vote massively for president Mahama and Emmanuel Assafuah come December 7th,2016.
