The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has allegedly accused the opposition National Democratic Party (NDC) of orchestrating the recent fires that have ruined some markets and business centres across the country.
In a statement signed by Mr. John Boadu, the General Secretary of the NPP, the development is undoubtedly a case of arsons suspiciously undertaken by the NDC as part of its protest against the outcome of the 2020 elections.
“The sheer rampancy and coincidence with which the markets are burning, coupled with the constant threats by some elements of the opposition to burn markets in order to drum home their concerns over the outcome of the 2020 general elections, leaves no lingering doubt that they are behind these arson attacks,” John Boadu’s statement read.

The NDC have registered their displeasure towards the outcome of the 2020 elections through demonstrations in major regional capitals, following the declaration of Nana Akufo-Addo as President elect in the Dec. 7, 2020 polls by the Electoral Commission. Making reference to the outbreaks of fires at the Kaneshie Market, Kantamanto Market, Odawna Market, Asankraggua Market among others with the past few weeks, the NPP said these could not be out of the blue.
“For instance, the NDC National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, is on record to have incited his party footsoldiers to undertake series of “overt and covert operations” including setting markets ablaze and embarking on armed robbery attacks in order to create fear and sense of insecurity in the country. Ofosu Ampofo is of course being prosecuted in court for this treasonable comment, and the court has established as a matter of fact that it was his voice in that leaked tape,” the ruling party explained.
The NPP is also calling for the arrest of all suspects and accomplices believed to be behind the arson.
“Whiles commending the Police for arresting one of the suspected arsonists behind the Kantamanto fire outbreak by name, Daniel Dah Kormlah, who had been identified as an active member of the opposition NDC, we also implore the police to immediately arrest Daniel Tee together with all his accomplices and make them face the full rigors of the law.”
The NPP further urged the police to expedite action in the ongoing investigations to bring an end to the menace.
