The National Democratic Party (NDP) has sent a stern warning to the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to desist from bribing its parliamentary candidates to step down a few days to the December 7 Elections.
The Party states that the “noble men and women standing on our ticket do so with integrity and a conviction to serve their community above all else.”
In a statement signed by H.F. Amoako, Secretary General of the Party, certain government officials and executive members of the NDC are cajoling NDP parliamentary candidates, especially those in the Eastern and Volta Regions, to abandon their aspirations in order to better the chances of NDC’s parliamentary candidates.
“These noble men and women believe that the culture of bribery and corruption at the community level, which is being perpetuated by the NDC government, cannot go on any longer,” the statement read.
“NDP Parliamentary Candidates have chosen to take the bold step to stand up against bribery, corruption and mismanagement at the constituency level: compromising their beliefs and conviction is not an option because they stand against negative practices that are hindering the development of our constituencies,” it added.
They asked their supporters to remain “steadfast in our values of probity accountability and social justice for all Ghanaians.”
