The Deputy National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Edem Agbana, has expressed his disappointment over the silence of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the killing of Ghanaians, believed to be supporters of the opposition NDC, during the keenly contested December 7 general elections.
There has been several incidents of politically motivated murder during the December 7 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections — at least 8 people ended up dead due to misunderstandings that ended up in armed struggles in some instances.
The Deputy National Youth Organizer of the NDC was however expecting the President, during his address to Parliament on the state of the nation, to say a word on the death of the 8 unarmed Ghanaians who were killed in the course of the election.
Unfortunately, the President did not meet the expectations of Mr. Agbana. According to him, the President’s”loud silence is too shameful.”
Expressing his disappointment, Mr. Edem Agbana took to Twitter to say: “Commander In Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, Prez Akufo-Addo,failed to say a word about the 8 unarmed Ghanaians who were killed during the elections. His LOUD SILENCE is SHAMEFUL. Clearly, he benefited politically from their MURDER so cannot be bothered. #SOTNGhana #SONA2021”
