Don’t attack our opponents gender,ethnicity- NPP to party Communicators

The 2020 campaign team of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has advised its communicators against attacking ethnicity or gender of their opponents as they campaign in the 2020 elections.

It comes on the back of the barrage of attacks from some NPP officials on the opposition NDC’s running mate Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang following her announcement by former President John Mahama.

The Deputy campaign manager for the NPP’s campaign team Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid in a statement said: “We therefore urge all who speak for, or purport to speak for the party to refrain from attacking political opponents. We specifically ask that no reference should ever be made to opponents’ ethnicity, religion or gender.

“We shall campaign on our record and win. Indeed, there is enough to speak about with regard to our record. We cannot beat our opponents in the politics of calumny. Let us therefore refrain”.

 

Below are details of the statement
