President-elect Nana Akufo Addo has promised not to victimize political opponents adding that “No member of the NDC has anything to fear from my future government” as the New Patriotic Party prepares to take over the governance of Ghana.
In a letter written to former president Rawlings to thank him for congratulating he [Akufo Addo], the president-elect said in part that “… I would need the unalloyed support of every Ghanaian, irrespective of their ethnic groups or religious or political affiliation. “There can be no room in such an undertaking for witch-hunting or acts of political vendetta or harassment. No member of the NDC has anything to fear from my future government.” Already some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) say they fear acts of victimization from the NPP which was declared the winning party after the December 7 polls.
A transition process has began to hand over power to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which would be co-chaired by President Mahama and President-elect, Nana Akufo Addo. The thank you statement by Nana Addo further indicated that “I am fully committed to pursuing an anti-corruption drive across the board.”
