Former Central Regional Chairman of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has fired his former political party for petitioning the Commonwealth of Nations to investigate what it says is human rights violations against its members by the Akufo-Addo government.
He went on to say that some NDC members are actually facing prosecution for their utterances.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM from history the NDC has proven that it enjoys revolution so it’s not so surprising that some of it’s members are calling for overthrow of the ruling administration.
Speaking on the history of both the NDC and NPP he stated that the NPP has a history but the NDC doesn’t as it has always been revolutionary.
“The NPP is still keeping the UP tradition but we should all know that the NDC has no tradition but came out of a revolution. It’s not a tradition; it’s a revolution. Revolution is not tradition but people want to sow that revolutionary seed to make to look as if it’s a tradition. So, it’s like some people in that revolutionary . . . belief is that every time we are in opposition, we have to say there should be a coup d’état because that is the tradition.
“So, if you believe that the revolution is a tradition, then don’t be surprised that NDC elements will come face-to-face with Ghanaians and tell Ghanaians there should be a coup d’état because that’s where they are coming from,” he stated.
