Member of Parliament for Ketu-South, Honorable Fifi Fiavi Kwetey has advised opinion leaders who have remained quiet and witnessing the happenings in the country to come out to condemn the acts.
He said that opinion leaders or people that matter who are watching the developments and not raising their voices are through their silence encouraging the entrenchment of an oppressive and tyrannical regime.
“Those watching these looming danger and failing to speak up to condemn it should remember that their silence makes them accomplices and posterity will judge them if their own conscience fails to do so”, the MP said.
He gave the advice at a press briefing held in the Ketu-South Municipality of the Volta Region.
Organized by the NDC, the press briefing is to address the heightened military deployment which they believe could hinder voters to partake in the Voter registration exercise.
He however reiterated to the NPP that God is not mocked thus, the earlier they awoke to that realization the better.
“The day of reckoning will soon come, whatsoever you sow, that you shall you reap”, Fifi Kwetey said.
According to him, the areas with heightened security deployments happen to be the stronghold of the NDC. He, therefore, reiterated the need to treat every Ghanaian fairly and live peacefully together as envisioned by Kwame Nkrumah at the time of the Nations Independence.
He urged the NPP to do deep self-examination, calling on them to slump out of the pathological delusion that some Ghanaians are foreigners and that only the NPP are proper Ghanaians, the better for all.
He recalled that in the year 2008, the NPP orchestrated to close the eastern borders and a great number of Ketu South in the Volta region defied all course, came out in massive numbers to support the NDC, to snatch the parliamentary victory for the NDC in the first round and defeated the NPP in the presidential in the second round.
“That same inspiration is needed today to rise up from the current challenge, the same spirit of boldness in the fight, that inspired us in 2008 should alleviate us more”
He asked that the NPP direct their anger of a lost election to their own internal campaign inadequacies. “The anger of the enemy should rather be directed at their own internal campaign inadequacies, it is only chronic losers who blame others for their loss because winners emerge always to have deep retrospection and self-correction when they lose.”
Hon. Fifi Fiavi Kwetey assured the people of Ketu-South of a peaceful registration process and called on them to come out in our multitudes, defy intimidation and register massively for change of governance.
He, however, called on the supporters of the NDC to rise up and refuse to be intimidated during the registration exercise which begins tomorrow and have faith because victory beckons the party. ”destiny is on our side thus, it is not the time for fear, this is the moment for courage and this bravery”.
He commended former President, Jerry John Rawlings for releasing a statement to condemn the intimidation going on along the Eastern border.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Volta MP Caucus and MP for Ho West, Emmanuel Bedzrah has given the government a 24-hour ultimatum to call off and withdraw the deployment of the military personnel in the Ketu-South municipality and other parts of the region.
He said on Tuesday, the government should have called off the deployment to back to their military barracks so as to ensure the stability and peace of the country.
