A youth group in the opposition National Democratic Congress has said it will on May 29, 2017 resort to the Antoa deity to deal with all executives of the party who they claim pocketed monies and resources meant for the party’s 2016 electoral campaign.
According to the convener of the group, Seth Okyere, some executives hoarded party resources and also squandered cash released by former President John Mahama to undertake campaign activities to secure electoral victory for the NDC.
This development, he said, was among the major factors that led to the party’s defeat in last year’s polls.
According to Mr Okyere, the corrupt NDC executives’ continuous stay in office will make it difficult to revive the grassroots support for future elections.
Speaking in an interview with an Accra based radio station, he said “On Monday, we are going to release a press statement to expose all those who ‘chopped’ campaign cash.
“After the press release, we will summon them to the Antoa river, another river in the Volta Region, and one outside the country to punish or possibly kill all those who spent campaign cash, because their action resulted in our painful defeat.
“From Monday onward, if you hear that some party executives are dying, then know that they squandered party cash. Whoever kept campaign materials will also suffer. If all of them are gone, new, trusted executives will emerge to steer the affairs of the party,” he added.
