The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has launched a scathing attack on the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) describing them as “pampered hotheaded goons.”
This was in response to a press conference held by the NDC and addressed by its National Chairman, Kofi Portuphy on Thursday January 13, to condemn the pockets of nationwide attacks on its members by perceived supporters of the NPP.
In that press conference, Mr. Portuphy called on President Akufo Addo to call the perceived NPP supporters to order warning that: “Don’t blame the NDC if the unacceptable conduct of Akufo-Addo’s invisible forces lead to brouhaha.”
Not happy with the NDC’s press conference, the NPP has held a media briefing of its own to lambast the NDC.
Addressing the briefing Wednesday, Nana Obiri Boahen, the NPP’s Deputy General Secretary said the language employed by the NDC in its press conference was “uncouth, uncivil, belligerent and very symptomatic of over pampered hotheaded goons.”
According to him, the NPP will begin to respond to the insults of the NDC if they continue in that fashion.
