A group called Inside Ghana, has challenged the Christian Council of Ghana to condemn the recklessness and irresponsible behavior of members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

In a statement released yesterday, the group said, “We noted with grave concern the recklessness and irresponsibility of the part of the minority NPP to organize a handful of their supporters overseas to denigrate and insult the office of the Ghanaian President and the person of H.E. President John Dramani Mahama on his international travels”.

Hopeson Adorye, a notorious NPP activist, who recently contested the National Organiser slot of the party, has been captured on video in Germany, in the midst of party supporters at the prescient of a hotel, insulting President John Mahama, who is on a state visit to that country, and also seeking investment to Ghana.

In a statement signed by George Spencer Quaye, it said “…this nauseating culture is gradually becoming a norm for the New Patriotic Party, which our intelligence tells us is fully funded by the Nana Akufo Addo led NPP”.

“Inside Ghana, therefore, calls on the leadership of the Christian Council of Ghana to condemn this recklessness and rein in the leadership of the New Patriotic Party. We are appalled by this brainless cowardice which seems to have become a new political gimmick being deployed by the NPP in their demonic quest for power at all cost”, the statement copied The Herald, said.

The Christian Council of Ghana, has in the past condemned similar acts by Ghanaian politicians.

Below is the full statement issued by the Inside Ghana….

CHRISTIAN COUNCIL MUST REIN IN RECKLESS NPP
Inside Ghana has noted with grave concern the recklessness and irresponsibility of the part of the minority NPP to organize a handful of their supporters overseas to denigrate and insult the office of the Ghanaian President and the person of H.E. President John Dramani Mahama on his international travels. This nauseating culture is gradually becoming a norm for the New Patriotic Party, which our intelligence tells us is fully funded by the Nana Akufo Addo led NPP.

Demonstrations or street protests are legitimate tools used in seeking redress within the confines of democracy, but the sickening culture of holding placards with insults and hurling abusive words in the direction of the President on his international visits by these ruffians is undemocratic, cruel, cowardice and unacceptable and smacks of desperation to succeed a duly elected president of the Republic at all cost.

Inside Ghana therefore calls on the leadership of the Christian Council of Ghana to condemn this recklessness and rein in the leadership of the New Patriotic Party. We are appalled by this brainless cowardice which seems to have become a new political gimmick being deployed by the NPP in their demonic quest for power at all cost.

The Council must rise up to this challenge and demonstrate true leadership in the fight against politics of insults. The Council apart from its core business of ecumenism is also a research based advocacy institution in governance. In the past the Council has made public its views on national issues and we challenge them to do same on this matter.

We also wish to draw the attention of the Council to pronouncements by some church leaders which we find very derogatory and unsavory. A popular soundbite by the Presbyterian Moderator is often played by Asempa fm, which we find unpalatable most especially coming from a man of God. We again urge the Council to condemn such comments.

We at Inside Ghana believe the ultimate tragedy that could befall this nation is not the crudity and cruelty of these evil men but the silence of good men over such foolhardiness and nitwittedness. We therefore call on the Christian Council of Ghana and other Faith Based Organisations to as a matter of urgency respond to this recklessness before it degenerates into a bigger monster.

Happy and Prosperous New Year

Signed
George Spencer Quaye
