A member of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh, is incensed about government’s penchant of branding anyone who disagrees with it as a member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, tagging everyone NPP in a democratic country like Ghana will only come from people who are narrow in thinking.
Many groups and civil society organizations including Trades Union Congress, IMANI Ghana, AFAG and OccupyGhana have all been branded affiliates of the opposition party.
The latest to be added is the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU).
According to the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communications Director, Solomon Nkansah the leader of the transport union has refused to reduce transport fares drastically because it wants to make the Mahama government unpopular.
But on Oman FM’s National Agenda Tuesday, Kwabena Bomfeh said he is not surprised about the conduct of the NDC.
He indicated that such claims brings into question which peoples voted for the party to come to power.
“If anyone who expressed a different view is a member of the NPP then who voted for the NDC” he quizzed.
Kabila as he is popularly called described the conduct of those behind such claim as “nonsensical”.
He appealed to media houses in the country not to allow their platform to be used to propagate such trivialities.
