Dzifa Attivor, the former Minister of Transport who resigned over the Smartty's bus branding saga, has described the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is a tribal party bent on prosecuting only Ewes if it wins the general elections in November.
Speaking at the launch of a group called ‘Ketu South For Fifi And Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South district of the Volta region, she said from 2001 to 2009 that the NPP was in power, they only targeted Ewes for prosecution.
When the NPP won power in 2001, most ministers who are Ewes were imprisoned, including Serlomey 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 asked in her native language.
Referring to the late Victor Selormey and Dan Abodakpi who were jailed in 2001 and 2007 respectively for causing financial loss to the state when they were co-chairmen a Trade and Investment Programme, she reminded the foot soldiers that the fate that befell some NDC top guns from the regions still holds true for any Ewe in the current government adding that that all that stood between her and prison time, is the Volta regional vote.
I want to remind you that it is your vote that will decide if Fifi Kwetey and I will be prosecuted and put behind bars or not, she rallied.
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 in Togo to come back home and register during the limited registration exercise which begins 28th April 2016, myjoyonline reported.
