STORY: POLITICAL DESK REPORT

The leadership of the New Patriotic Party has described as a lie and total fabrication, publication by the True Statesman and subsequently carried by Ghanaweb, titled ?NPP ?killer squad? begins operation.?

According to the party, the paper reports that a secret meeting was held between the NPP Chairman, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, the NPP National Organiser, Alhaji Moctar Bamba, and ?a group? at the Katakyir Hotel in Takoradi, on the 22nd of September, to ?plot their strategy for their ?All-die-be-die? ambition? ?between the hours of 8PM to 11PM.?

The party in a rejoinder stated that its Chairman was nowhere near the Western Region on Saturday 22ndSeptember, as alleged.

The party continued that the paper, ironically, makes mention of the fact that Nana Akufo-Addo was at the meeting advocating for a power-sharing government. ?Nana Akufo-Addo on the said date, as all Ghanaians are aware of, was in the Eastern Region, specifically in the Upper West Akim constituency, on his ?restore hope tour.?

?We will neither ask for an apology nor retraction from a paper situated deep in the partisan stable of the ruling party and dedicated to publishing false stories on our 2012 presidential candidate and the leadership of our party,? the party categorically stated.

The statement noted that the party will rather appeal to the general public to, once again, ignore this false story for what it is- an unworthy story intimating that ?what the NDC intend to do, they first accuse others first.?
