NDC’s Yamoah Ponkoh denies ‘bloody election’ claim that is becoming an albatross around his neck. He is a leading member of the National Democratic Congress [NDC], the major opposition party in the country.
Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh, has, however, denied strongly accusations leveled against him which suggests that he was inciting his party foot soldiers to go all out for a ‘bloody election campaign’ ahead of the 2020 general polls.
Yamoah Ponkoh has however stated that he is for ‘peace’ and has no intention to instigate party members for ‘war’ as purported – “Anyone with evidence of the allegation should bring it out.” he said.
Contrary to his interest in peaceful elections in December, there is a tape recently circulating in media circles in which a voice that looks like his is heard urging Ghanaians to gear up for a bloody election in December.
In a fear-provoking tone, the former MCE for Ejisu in the erstwhile NDC government threatened that his party [NDC] was prepared to go to any limit possible, including shedding innocent blood, to win the elections.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ – Yamoah Ponkoh was of a view that the circulated audio has been doctored to tarnish his reputation.
“It’s unfortunate, the NPP is desperate for power and doing all they can do to win the next election,” he told sit-in host Mac Jerry Osei Agyeman. The ‘bloody election’ claim allegation will not die soon.
