Gov’t condemns NPP 1st Vice Chair for 'Mahama must be shot' comment

The Flagstaff House has condemned comments by NPP First Vice Chair, F.F. Anto, for allegedly saying President Mahama deserves to be hanged or killed at the shooting range seeking re-election. A statement released Friday by

Communication Minister, Edward Omane-Boamah, said the comments by the NPP stalwart are “despicable and unimaginable”.

“Government takes a serious view of the NPP Vice Chairman’s comments on Abusua FM and wishes to condemn the opposition party’s constant resort to hate speech,” the statement said.

Mr Anto is quoted by news reports as making reference to the shooting to the death of a former Head of State, General I. K. Acheampong, and indicating that what befell him is what President Mahama deserves.

The statement said the NPP Vice Chairman’s death wish for the President is particularly striking if put side-by-side a failed assassination attempt on the President the fact that only recently the NPP imported three South African Mercenaries to engage in secret training for some hooligans under the now known operation code-named ‘Assaulting the Pillars of Power’.

“We believe elections are about counting heads and not cutting heads. Government is therefore, advising the NPP and all political actors to engage in progressive and 21st-century politicking and not what divides and inculcates the resort to violence in our people,” the Communication Minster said the statement.

The statement also called on the National Peace Council and the security agencies to increase their alertness and vigilance in order to ensure the early identification and isolation of such backward incidents likely to be perpetrated by men and women, who should know better, to forestall an escalation of tensions as the December elections inch closer.
