The Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Mustapha Gbande has made a sudden U-turn and apologized to Ghanaians for urging them to arm themselves with cutlasses if they are going to vote in 2024.
Mustapha Gbande’s apology comes after he earlier said on Accra-based Okay FM “I have told the leadership of the NDC that we have to prepare in advance for the NPP ahead of the elections. when we are going to the polling station, let’s carry with us cutlasses. If we do, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will not be able to misbehave toward us.”
In the interview when told that his statement was inciting the electorate, Mr Gbande insisted that the only way to guarantee a free and fair election in the view of the NDC is to arm themselves to the voting centres.
