Some National Democratic Congress (NDC) members have come under fire from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for leveling charges against Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia based only on their religious beliefs.
Richard Ahiagbah, the director of communications, has declared unequivocally that the name-calling must stop.
Sam Nartey George, the Ningo Prampram member of parliament, recently called the NPP flagbearer a “religious prostitute.”
He said that the Vice President’s affiliations with mosques and churches are solely for political purposes.
On Wednesday, on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, Mr. Ahiagbah voiced his disgust, claiming that certain NDC members had also chosen to partake in the name-calling.
Godwin Edudzi Tameklo, a member of the Legal and Communications team, and the NDC’s Deputy Communications Officer were mentioned by him for jumping on the bandwagon.
Mr. Ahiagbah claims that if this act continues, it would signal disaster for the nation and that the NDC has to be put to order.
“I get angry when I talk about this matter but it seems it is a new song the NDC is now singing. We must make it clear to them that it can spell doom because being tolerant doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate your own values.
Because of its efforts to foster peaceful coexistence, Ghana is admired by many other nations. It won’t go well for us if we don’t quit. There are boundaries to what we can experiment with, he cautioned.
Ahiagbah, who was clearly upset, pointed out that occasionally, NDC members who identify as Christians are spotted at mosques and with imams.
“Does it make them religious prostitutes, they are just bringing division,” he therefore questioned.
