Murtala Mohammed, Deputy Minister of Information and Media Relations has raised doubts about the commitment of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to the Supreme Court.

He wondered if the NPP believes in the Supreme Court, accusing the party leaders of condoning some indecent acts by the members regarding the election petition in the court.

He noted that the party even as its leaders petitioned the Supreme Court, claiming that the 2012 elections were rife with irregularities and so, prayed the court to overrule the legitimacy of President John Dramani Mahama; they verbally abused the Justices with impunity.

He therefore asked whether “the NPP believes in the court?” because “if they did, why did they do the kind of things they did. Even when they’re in court, you have members; not even a rebuke, not an admonishment for the statements those people made against the Justices.”

He said on “Alhaji and Alhaji” last Saturday on Radio Gold that despite the NPP’s posture after the 2012 elections, the party leaders have not condemned some acts of violence perpetrated by the members and supporters.

He recalled some irresponsible acts by the party, disclosing that the members visited violence on some innocent Ghanaians but did not get the guts to apologize to the victims.

He therefore slammed the party saying “what the party did was that they went to selected media houses to apologize to those media houses…The party never apologized to those people.”

He admonished the opposition party to stop vilifying the Judiciary and also desist from attacking the integrity of people.
