The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is planning to unleash attacks on key personalities in Ghana including the EC chairperson Jean Mensa and the National Peace Council boss, a leaked tape reveals.
A leaked tape purported to be the voice of NDC National Chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo in a meeting with party communicators said: “we’re going to take her [EC boss] to the cleaners.”
“As for the EC chair, we must wage a relentless war on this EC chair. Me, she doesn’t want to see my face,” Ofosu-Ampofo allegedly said at the meeting which took place after the Ayawaso by-election.
As part of strategic communication plans for the NDC going into the 2020 elections, Ofosu-Ampofo also gave his blessings for the communicators to verbally attack the Peace Council chairman Professor Emmanuel Asante.
“For the first time, I will endorse insulting the National Peace Council Chair,” he said to cheers from the NDC Communicators.
“The party will come out with a number of policy initiatives. Security and Intelligence Unit in the party will be formed and we will appoint National Coordinator, Regional, District and Constituency officers to lead these Units as we zoom along into 2020,” the national chairman assured.
Ofosu-Ampofo wants the communicators to also target the president Nana Akufo-Addo when it comes to the Ayawaso incident since he is the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces.
“We must focus the communication on the President. We need to forcefully push them,” he said.
