The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has condemned what it says is a fashionable craze towards the acquisition of quick wealth by Ghanaians from all walks of life but particularly the youth.

This trend, the party warned, is a very dangerous development that has to be condemned and discouraged by the entire country.

Director of Communications, Kakra Essamuah, issued the condemnation in a statement on the gruesome ritual murder of the 10-year-old at Kasoa in the Central Region.

The party, he said, opposes this development in the strongest term else the state risk bequeathing to the youth practice and lifestyle that cannot build the country.

He called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the government to take note of the plethora of crimes whose resolution has dragged on interminably and thus encouraging the perpetuation of the culture of impunity.

“We encourage the youth to look out for honest, hard-working, and accomplished persons as their role models.”

“The wealth which has been improperly obtained should never be an attraction for the upcoming youth of this great nation,” a part of the statement said.

Press statement by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on the murder of young Ishmael Mensah Abdallah at Kasoa

It is with extreme shock and disbelief that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) received news of the gruesome murder of a ten-year-old boy called Ishmael Mensah Abdallah at Kasoa in the Central Region by his own teenaged acquaintances for ritual purposes.

The Leadership, as well as the entire rank and file of the NDC, join the family and friends and indeed the entire nation, in mourning the loss of this young and promising boy much beloved by his family and community.

It is the expectation of the National Democratic Congress that the appropriate authorities will ensure that the bereaved family are comforted by the swiftness of the application of the law to punish the perpetrators and all who may be behind this dastardly murder.

The NDC has taken due notice of the fact that there appears to be a fashionable craze towards the acquisition of quick wealth by many of our countrymen and women and the youth in particular, without the attendant hard, morally sound and lawful means of obtaining same.

We deem this development as a dangerous trend that has to be condemned and discouraged by all and sundry.

It is a development that the NDC is unquestionably opposed to, or else we risk bequeathing to the youth practice and a lifestyle that cannot build this nation.

We further wish to draw the attention of the Akufo-Addo government to the plethora of crimes whose resolution has dragged on interminably, thus encouraging the perpetuation of the culture of impunity.

We encourage the youth to look out for honest, hard-working, and accomplished persons as their role models.

The wealth which has been improperly obtained should never be an attraction for the upcoming youth of this great nation.

In this regard, we call on the Akufo-Addo government to speed up investigations and crank the wheels of justice so that the country can rid itself of the odious reminder of this unfortunate event.

May the soul of young Ishmael Mensah Abdallah rest in peace.

Kakra Essamuah

Director of Communications
