Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mustapha Foyo Gbande has cleared the air on reports that he was attacked by some irate supporters of the party over the replacement of Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, Hon. Mubarak Muntaka and Hon. Avedzi.
According to a report by Radio Tamale sighted by InsiderGH.com, some irate supporters of the National Democratic Congress on Wednesday, January 25, 2022 stormed the premise of Radio Tamale and inflicted harm on the deputy General Secretary of the party.
However, the deputy general secretary has denied the reports. According to him, he was not attacked.
Below is his full press release:
I was not attacked in Tamale
My attention has been drawn to a supposed attack on my person as reported by Tamale Radio on their online portal.
For the records, I wasn’t attacked in Tamale yesterday. The fact of the matter is, during an interview session with Radio Tamale on a press conference I addressed earlier in Tolon Constituency on an embarrassing Ludo donation by the MP, the question of the changes in the NDC was put to me. I indicated that it was a strategic decision by the party in repositioning the party in winning the 2024 election. I indicated that even though i may not be personally happy about the changes, it is in the interest of the party.
I made it clear that the decision taken by leadership might not sit well with all members but we must accept it even if reluctantly for us to move on in our quest to winning power in 2024.
Whiles on air, some supposed party members numbering about 7 came to the premises of the station to express their displeasure on the change of Hon. Haruna Iddrisu as leader of the Minority group in Parliament. I came down from the studio to calm issues down before leaving. At no point was I attacked and such claim must be treated with the contempt it deserves.
