A Deputy Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anthony Abayifa Karbo has expressed surprise over the recent warning by the Vice President, Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is prepared to serve the NPP a double dose if they insult the presidency.
The Vice President during interactions with some electorate in the Central Region said the NDC was prepared to serve the NPP a double dose of their venom during the campaign season. Amissah-Arthur’s comments come at a time the president has been admonishing all players in the political field to eschew the politics of insults.
The threat by the Vice President, Anthony Karbo in an interview with Adom News said, was very surprising as the NPP has never been insulting the ruling government.
To him, the NPP only criticizes the actions and policies of the NDC government and never attacks actors in the government.
“The Vice President hardly speaks…what has the NPP really said that amounts to insults on the government, saying that President Mahama is incompetent does not amount to insults so I don’t see why the Vice President would claim NPP would be served a double dose of our insults…,” he said.
According to Karbo, the Vice President might have been possessed by a ‘gbeshie’ spirit and that caused him to make ‘the baseless comments’.
“I don’t know what has come upon him (Vice President), maybe a gbeshie spirit has taken possession of him hence his utterance…the NPP would continue criticizing the government and tell Ghanaians what it would do better when voted into power,” he added.
