Suhum Odwira: NDC and NPP Clash Over NDC Flags
There has been a riot at Suhum, in the Eastern Region, between the NPP and NDC over the removal of flags and banners
Suhum has quite a riot over the weekend when the NPP and NDC clashed in the festival. John Mahama initially was to attend the festival in Suhum over the weekend but his invitation was canceled.
As a usual welcome posture to his invitation, the NDC’s constituency executive hoisted the party’s flags and banners in the Suhum township.
Suddenly, the flags and banners were removed allegedly on the instruction of the MCE, Hon. Margret Darkwa.
The National Democratic Congress in Suhum were disappointed when they learnt that the ongoing damage of the party’s flags was led by the Suhum MCE.
In a statement, the NDC said;
Before our people could say anything, these NPP hooligans with the MCE visibly involved, started destroying our party flags.
The statement was issued by Dove Maxwell, constituency communications officer for the NDC.
NPP is very much aware of the humiliating defeats that await them as we inch closer to December 7, 2024, General elections, hence have adopted this childish and disgraceful tactic just to intimidate our people and scare them from coming out in their numbers to vote for President John Dramani Mahama and our Parliamentary Candidates on election day.
However, we will be forced to retaliate in double measure if they don’t put a stop to these acts.
We have constantly challenged them on issues and called for a comparison of achievements of the two parties. Suhum deserves mature politicking and campaigning of and on issues. Suhum does not deserve this needless instigation and antagonistic attitude.
We call on the security agencies to urgently investigate these series of attacks and appropriately call to order the perpetrators and assigns in other to boost the confidence of Constituents in the constituency and the region at large.
Suhum Constituency is a very peaceful place, hence this shameful act being executed by the NPP and the MCE to destabilize the seeming peace enjoyed should be of great concern to all and sundry.
But the National Patriotic party(NPP) on the other hand debunked the allegations. They asked Ghanaians to treat it with the needed contempt.
The Suhum NPP Communications Officer, Samuel Baah advised the NDC to stop the propaganda of shouting wolf where there is none.
the release by the NDC which insinuates some thugs they(NDC) perceive to be NPP members launched an attack on some NDC members to destroy NDC flags in the Constituency before the grand durbar of the 2022 Suhum Odwira Festival is frivolous and mere propaganda targeted at gaining needless public attention and must be treated with the utmost contempt.
The NPP in said the NDC rather had the shock when saw a resounding welcome and love for the NPP. The love went on to reflect in the arrival of Vice President Dr. Bawumia to the 2022 Suhum Odwira durbar.

The NPP statement countered,
Indeed the NDC’s attempt to boo the Vice President was not supported and outrightly rejected by the good people of the Constituency hence an attempt to squeeze frivolous propaganda to catch up with time. This tactics by the NDC is outmoded and cannot stand the test of modern politics.
The NPP in the Constituency has endeared itself to the constituents as a peace-loving and development-oriented party and so no amount of propaganda can dent the good image of the party and its leadership in any circumstance.
The party is more than resolved and optimistic of constituents’ support as we continue the unprecedented developmental projects in the Constituency and the nation as a whole.
