NDC Media Monitors in the Ashanti region are calling for a general condemnation of what they refer to as the “unacceptable, uncultured, disrespectful and awful” behavior of some members of the New Patriotic Party towards the President during the late Bantamahene’s funeral.
A statement released by the serial callers specifically called on the National Peace Council, Traditional leaders, Christian Council, Islamic leaders, Civil society groups as well as the media to condemn the hooting of the President during his visit.
Many supporters of the largest opposition party, hooted at and called the President names last Thursday, March 10, 2016 in Kumasi; a behaviour the serial callers believe is unhealthy for our dispensation.
They also believe the act constitutes a security threat and ask that the NPPs flag bearer; Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP render apologies to the President for the action of their supporters.
Chairman of the Media Monitors, Abdul Latif Abdullahi tells rawgist.com the behaviour of the NPP supporters was a bad precedent and should not be countenanced as it may affect the moral standard of body politic of the country and lead to undesirable outcomes.
