No one can destroy the peace of Ghana — Nana Addo condemns weapon-brandishing NDC youth

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has condemned the actions of some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who were captured in viral videos wielding machetes around the office premises of the flagbearer of the party, John Mahama, following a purported cleanup exercise on Thursday, November 23, 2023.

The youth wings of the NDC embarked on a clean-up exercise around the office of Mahama on November 23, 2023.

The development coincides with the 'Fixing the Country Movement' plans to occupy Mahama's office on the same day, over Airbus corruption allegations.

The 'Fixing the Country Movement stated that if they perceive a lack of progress in the Airbus corruption investigations involving Mahama, they will proceed with occupying his office to picket.

The Movement consider any nonchalant approach to the Airbus corruption affair unacceptable and called on relevant parties to take immediate action.


Nana Addo speaking at the Valedictory Service for the outgoing Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rt. Reverend Professor Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, said the actions of the NDC faithful will have no place before, during, or after the December 2024 general elections.

He assured Ghanaians that his administration is around the clock to bring the economy to the level it was before COVID-19.

He was optimistic he would fulfill this promise before exiting office.

Nana Addo expressed his disapproval of the behaviour of the NDC youth, emphasizing that such actions will find no place in the lead-up to, during, or after the December 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

"It is my honest hope that the machetes and weapons brandished last week at the residence of the NDC's presidential candidate, the former president John Mahama are not signs of things to come in the run-up of the 2024 elections elections.


"If it is, I can assure them that they will find no success with them. I want to state for the record that under my watch, no person or group of persons no matter their political colouration will destabilise our country nor destroy the peace that all of us are enjoying. It will not happen," he added.
