Financial analyst, Sydney Casely-Hayford has said that the violence in the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has come as a result of a political class of murderers created in Ghana’s politics.
According to him, the nature of politics practiced in Ghana is characterised by violence because some people are of the notion that the best way to defeat their opponents is to eliminate them. He indicated that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is no better than the NPP when it comes to internal violence.
His comments came in the wake of the acid attack and subsequent death of the Upper East regional chairman of the NPP, Alhaji Adams Mahama.“The NDC is no less violent than the NPP. We have a class of violent political parties.“I’m saying that Ghana inherited politics of violence…we fought the British in a violent way for political hegemony.“…We have ended up creating a political class of murderers,” he stated on Accra-based Citi FM Saturday.
