Former Transport Minister Dzifa Attivor, who resigned in the midst of Smarty’s Bus Branding saga, says the New Patriotic Party is a tribal party bent on prosecuting only Ewes if it wins the general elections in November to satisfy their hatred for Ewes.
Making reference to the record of the NPP when they were in government between 2001 to 2008, the minister said only Ewes were targeted for prosecution
When the NPP won power in 2001, most ministers who are Ewes were imprisoned, including Selormey and Abodakpi and a host of other ministers. Does that mean that no individual from any other tribe has faulted in the discharge of their duties? she said in her native language.
Dzifa Attivor who resigned her ministerial position last year following the controversial bus branding saga, was armed with this history when she mounted the campaign platform during the launch of a group called ‘Ketu South For Fifi And Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South district of the Volta region.
She impressed the grassroots that the fate that befell some NDC top guns from the regions still holds true for any Ewe in the current government. The former minister explained that all that stands between her and prison time, is the Volta regional vote.
She expressed comfort and confidence in the fact that the Volta region remains the stronghold of the ruling government.
We the people of the Volta region will forever remain loyal to the NDC, Dzifa Attivor said.
She asked the NDC grassroots to encourage their relatives living in border towns like Togo to come back home and register during the limited registration exercise which begins 28th April 2016.
