Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otukunor has said that the “we will kill each other” comment made by the National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Mr Bernard Mornah was a conditional statement.
In an interview on Accra FM, Mr Otukunor said Bernard Mornah was only reacting to a comment made by deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Obiri Boahen that the governing New Patriotic Party would attack and beat people up at the voter registration centres of the Electoral Commission.
“Nana Obiri Boahen said they will beat people and Bernard Mornah said if it’s so, then we will also beat and kill people, so, his comments were conditional,” Otukunor stressed.
The said ‘we will kill each other’ statement, landed Bernard Mornah into trouble as he was invited by the police Criminal Investigation Department (CID). He was however granted bail Tuesday June 2, after honouring the invitation.
“We shall not allow our freedoms in any form to be trampled by any person. President Nana Akufo-Addo cannot stifle the freedoms that we are granted by the Constitution. Those freedoms include the freedom to speak and we will speak. We will dare them and we will speak the truth because, at all points in time, we must correct the ills in our society which if we don’t correct, has the potential of eroding the peace and stability of our nation”, Mr Mornah told the media after his bail.
