NPP originators of negative politics in Ghana – Nkansah
A former National Communications Officer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah, has called on well-meaning Ghanaians to blame the governing New Patriotic Party for the advent of negative politics in the country.
According to him, the NPP and its apparatchiks are the originators of negative politics under the 1992 Constitutional dispensation.
He said the NPP had a track record of using negative politics against Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president.
The former Communications Officer and now Director of Operations for the Duffour for President campaign blamed the NPP for the negative politics that has crept into Ghanaian politics in recent times.
He laid the blame on the NPP while speaking on the discussion segment on the Ghana Yensom morning show hosted by Odehyeeba Kofi Essuman on Accra 100.5 FM on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
He noted that negative politics has eaten into all fabrics of society.
“NPP as a political party are the engineers of negative politics since the coming into being of the 1992 Constitution,” he said.
He cited the situation under former president John Dramani Mahama where a tax was placed on imported cutlass to offer some protection for the Crocodile machete, a local producer.
He said the NPP went to town and vilified the then-Mahama-led government and claimed that the government does not care about ordinary farmers by imposing a tax on a prime farming tool like a cutlass.
“Today, they are back in Parliament attempting to reintroduce taxes they called nuisance tax during the era of former President John Dramani Mahama,” he noted.
“The NPP seems to have forgotten that if you throw a ball against the wall it bounces back to you,” he said.
