Baba Sadiq

The opposition NDC’s parliamentary aspirant for the Okaikwei Central Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Baba Sadiq, has accused the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) of breaking all the rules of politics.

He said the NPP has exhibited utter disregard for the rules of politics in the country.

Mr Sadiq explained that when the government is about implementing a policy that the vast majority of Ghanaians are against, it does not regard the people's impression of the policy.    

He said the NPP, in government, has packed state institutions with known party faithful in blatant disregard for the rules of politics.

He mentioned institutions such as the Electoral Commission (EC), and National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) among others.  

Baba Sadiq said the NPP is on record to have deployed armed masked men to visit mayhem on innocent voters in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by-election in the Greater Accra Region.

The parliamentary aspirant and a member of the creative arts industry made this accusation while speaking on The Citizen Show hosted by Kwabena Bobie Ansah on Accra100.5 FM on Friday, March 24, 2023.

He argued that since the advent of the Nana Akufo-Addo government, all state institutions have been padded with known party supporters.

“The NPP has bastardised all these state institutions including the Supreme Court,” he narrated. 

He alleged that in certain instances, the work of the technocrats at these state institutions is usurped by these known party people.

“The NPP is on record to have deployed armed men for the 2020 general elections leading to some eight people losing their lives,” he charged.

He said the word fairness is missing in the books of the NPP.

Mr Sadiq noted that the posturing of the NPP under the reign of President Nana Akufo-Addo is “dangerous” for the country's democracy.

“The NPP wants to have its way all the time in politics,” he bemoaned.
