A former Attorney General in the erstwhile New Patriotic Party regime, Hon. Joe Ghartey, has accused the NDC of perpetrating lawlessness.

According to the Essikadu-Ketan MP, wrongdoing and general lawlessness have been on the rise since the Atta Mills led NDC came to power.

The Former Attorney General was addressing a section of Ghanaians in London alongside a tour by the Flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.

“This umbrella of impunity continues to wreck lawlessness on Ghana. In fact there is so much lawlessness such that, right from the north to the south, they are chasing their own people out of office. And the impunity is such that, the law in Ghana which says that before you go on demonstration you need five days notice, seems not to be part of the law anymore. And when the foot soldiers of the umbrella (NDC) decide to go and chase their DCEs, they don’t notify the police. But the mistake that was made by the fishermen of Accra was that, they thought the law had been repealed and they left Chorkor and other places towards the Castle. And when they go to the point where Sergeant Adjetey and the rest were killed on February 28, these innocent fishermen were met with hot water and teargas” he narrated.

Hon Joe Ghartey together with Former Finance Minister Mr. Osafo Marfo, and NPP firebrand, Ursula Owusu amongst others, are accompanying the NPP Flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo, as he amasses support from Ghanaians in the United Kingdom.

Nana Addo and his delegation have already toured Ghanaian communities in Germany, where the party hosted its 3rd annual international conference in the German port city of Hamburg with representatives from the overseas branches of the party.

The three-day conference, under the theme ‘Recapture Power in 2012’, was attended by the party’s National Chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, the 2012 NPP Presidential Candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the NPP General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu-Afriyie popularly called Sir John, former Finance and Education Minister Yaw Osafo Maafo, National Organiser Alhaji Moctar Bamba, National Women’s Organiser Otiko Afisa Djaba, deputy Minority Leader in Parliament Ambrose Dery, MP for New Juabeng North Hackman Owusu-Agyemang, MP for Assin North Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, and all the ten regional chairmen who joined the overseas branches of the party to discuss the way forward for the party, especially preparations for election 2012.

Dwamena Yeboah, Chairman of the NPP Germany branch, hosted the conference. The delegates shared their opinions on strategies for election 2012.

Nana Akufo-Addo delivered the key note address at the conference where he spelt out his vision on the way forward for the country, especially how to transform the economy and banish poverty from the land.
