The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region has accused the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) of hatching a plot to stage a violent demonstration to divert public attention from President John Mahama’s Accounting to the People tour in the region, beginning Tuesday June 28.

In a statement, the party warned that any attempt to disrupt the President’s planned activities in the area shall be met with reasonable reaction.

The statement, signed by the NDC’s communications officer in the Ashanti Region, Samed Akalilu, dated June 27, indicated: “We see this as a sign of ungratefulness, if not wizardry, in the face of the unparalleled infrastructural developments given this region by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama over the past three years. While the NDC remains the most peaceful political entity in our country, we wish to state that any attempt to mar the beauty of the president's activities shall be met with the reasonable force it deserves,” the statement noted.

During the three-day tour, President Mahama is expected to inspect and inaugurate projects, pay courtesy calls on chiefs and elders and also interact with traders.

Meanwhile, the Ashanti regional Police Command is assuring the public that security arrangements are in place ahead of Mr Mahama’s visit. Deputy Ashanti Regional Police Commander, ACP Ampofo Duku told Class News: “We have adequately prepared for the visit of President Mahama to ensure that his working visit will go on in peace.”
