A member of the Communications Team of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Gabby Assumeng, has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of bringing a curse upon the country.

According to him, the current hardships and economic challenges being experienced in the country is mainly as a result of the electoral dispute on-going at the Supreme Court filed by three NPP bigwigs; Nana Akufo-Addo, the NPP’s 2012 presidential candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, his running-mate and the party’s National Chairman, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey.

He further stated that even prior to the general elections held in December, a survey conducted by the Center for Strategic International Studies cited the NPP flagbearer as a threat to peace in the country; thus it comes as no surprise to see Nana Addo holding the nation to ransom by refusing to concede defeat and challenging the electoral results.

Speaking on OkayFM, the NDC Communicator lamented that the 2012 election petition has affected trade, commerce, industry, agriculture and almost every economic activity in the country to the extent that people cannot profit from selling even iced-water.

“…the aviation industry is also suffering a similar fate…Virgin Atlantic recently closed its operations in Ghana…whenever NPP loses an election they have issues with the results and their actions always negatively affect the development of the country… It is a curse Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP have brought onto Ghanaians,” he fumed.
