The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken a swipe at Christian leaders in the country for their loud silence on the activities of vigilante groups, Delta and invincible forces.

 “All of a sudden, they have abandoned their neutral outlook. They have ceased being the conscience of the nation. We don’t want to believe the attitude of some clergy and civil society towards the disturbing developments in the political scene in Ghana is borne out of political or ethnic prejudice or is arousing out of hypocrisy and double standards,” the party’s Chairman, Kofi Portuphy said on Wednesday at a press briefing.

 “Where was the Ghana Bar Association, CODEO, Peace Council when the NPP brought in mercenaries from South Africa to train these terrorist elements. Where was the Peace Council, when after the elections, these NPP elements attacked, burned down and a took over operations of toll booths at Tiafre in the Brong Ahafo Region and in Tema at the Motorway?”, he said.

He also criticized the Ghana Bar Association for also remaining on silent on various acts of vandalism

“Where was the GBA when those goons beat up police officers and chased them out of their offices? Where was the peace council when NPP-sponsored goons murdered four NDC activists in different parts in the country in the Western, Central and Upper East Regions?” he said.
