The Member of Parliament for Adenta, Kwadwo Adu Asare has said the New Patriotic Party(NPP) lacks the moral uprightness to speak about the leaked tape recording involving the National Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Yaw Boateng Gyan.

According to him, the NPP is guilty of propagating more disturbing comments than what has been captured on the tape which has been described by some persons as recipe for electoral violence.

Mr Boateng Gyan on the tape is heard assuring some party youth of getting them enlisted in the Special Force unit of the Ghana Armed Forces and also getting them National Security Identity cards to enable them infilterate the ranks of the National Security outfit for electoral gains. His comments have been condemned by many with the opposition NPP calling for his arrest and prosecution.

However speaking on Asempa FM’s Eko sii sen show on Thursday, Hon.Adu Asare stated that the NPP must shut up as several of its high ranking officials including its Presidential candidate who is known for his infamous all-die-be die mantra are guilty of the same ‘offence’.

“The NPP must keep quiet and allow well-meaning Ghanaians to talk, they the NPP are not better than we NDC when it comes to these matters” he said.

He however welcomed the investigation yet to be conducted by the National Security into the issue. Hon. Adu Asare was confident President Mahama was going to win the December election and it was important that such unfortunate issues does not mar the impending sweet victory.
