We Can’t Have a Meeting With NPP Without A Witness; We Don’t Trust Them – Kweku Boahen

Deputy Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kweku Boahen, has asked that President Akufo-Addo uses the existing laws binding party vigilante groups than wanting to create new laws for cheap political points.

“Use and implement the already existing laws to disband party militia groups than wanting to create new laws for cheap political gains,” he asked President Akufo-Addo on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ political discussion segment. 

Kweku Boahen emphatically stated that they [NDC] will not have an initial meeting with the NPP as proposed to discuss if the need for a third party is necessary.

According to him, they are yet to meet as a party to take a final decision on the letter sent to them by the NPP General Secretary, even though they [NPP] delayed the date suggested by the President to hold the said meeting.

“We will never meet NPP on party vigilante disbandment without a third party. They will be making declarations we never made to the public claiming we made, therefore for the purposes of fairness and authenticity, a civil society group is needed as a witness in this meeting.

“We don’t trust the NPP to an extent of having close door meetings with them without a witness,” he added.
