Expect more attacks in NPP soon - University Dean

Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has predicted more violent attacks within the ruling New Patriotic Party in the coming weeks.

According to Dr. Charles Marfo, such violent attacks are as a result of failure by the party to call their vigilante groups to order in the days leading up to the 2016 general elections.

The Dean was speaking on Abusua Nkomo hosted by Austin Woode.

There has been violent attacks and takeovers by some NPP activists since the swearing in of President Akufo Addo in January.

It is recalled the president’s appointee to the office of Ashanti Regional liaison officer was met with violent attacks by members of the NPP’s Delta Forces.

Just yesterday, the party’s Invincible forces stormed the Eastern Regional offices of the National Health Insurance attacking workers in an apparent attempt to takeover management of the place.

Dr. Marfo explains, vigilante groups such as Invincible Forces, Delta Forces and the rest were made to believe to hold the final authority in the scheme of internal affairs.

He said, “mark this down, the country will experience more violent attacks ahead of the appointment of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives.”

“I blame these acts on leadership failure which predates the electioneering activities and how the party used these boys in their internal disputes,” he revealed.

“Believe me, these attacks are just a tip of the iceberg and I’m telling you to wait until we begin hearing announcement of MMDCEs in the next two or three weeks,” he stated.
