The National Nasara Coordinator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kamal-Deen Abdulai, says comments made by Odododiodio Constituency Member of Parliament, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, represents the position of the opposition National Democratic Congress.

A statement issued by the party, signed by NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah says the MP’s comment which creates the unfortunate impression that the party would free the jailed former MP, does not represent the party’s position.
“The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NDC wishes to place on record that the sentiment expressed by the Honourable Member on the above cited statement do not reflect, in any remotest sense, the position of the party regarding the fight against corruption in the country on the matter involving the conviction of Honourable Abuga Pele in particular”, the statement read.

“We wish to remind Ghanaians that the investigation and prosecution of Honourable Abuga Pele was initiated by the NDC as part of our strategy to rid the country of corruption, and this strategy involves measures to prevent corruption and how to deal with corruption when it has already occurred. They include exposure, investigation, prosecution and punishment of corruption”, he added.

But Kamal-Deen who is also an aspiring National Youth Organiser of the NPP believes that the ‘absurd’ statement by the MP has been the party’s official position.

The NDC MP he noted was only echoing the party’s position of pardoning government officials loyal to the party.

“For me I think Nii Lante’s comment is very bad and sad to our country. NDC trained him very well and so he is not an ordinary member in the party but a trained NDC executive and so his comment is the position of the NDC.
“They only came out with the statement just to cover up their criminal acts. Even their founder knows how corrupt they are and they have been corrupt over time and so it’s not surprising that they quickly come out with that fake release”, he said on Adom TV’s Morning Show, “Badwam” on Tuesday.
