Mustapha Gbande apologises for inciteful comments


Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mustapha Gbande has apologised to Ghanaians for inciting violence during the 2024 general elections.

While participating in a discussion on Okay FM, Mr Gbande reportedly advised voters to “carry cutlasses” with them when casting their ballots in December 2024.

This prompted the Ghana Police to launch an investigation into the matter.

A statement from the police said the comment made by Mr Gbande seeks to incite violence during the 2024 general elections.

“The police will continue to work with other sister security agencies diligently and patriotically to maintain the peace and security in our country, which has made Ghana a beacon of hope on the continent and beyond.

“We wish to assure the public that under our watch, no one will be allowed to undermine the peace, security, law and order in our beloved country,” the statement said.

But speaking on Kumasi-based Angel FM in an interview, Mr Gbande apologised for the comments.

“I take the responsibility, and I will apologise for it. And I’ll do so because it is part of me to accept when it is wrong,” he apologised.

He, however, said the media misquoted him.

“We will go back to the issues and scrutinise the issue of how the story started. You may also not be in a position as a newspaper to go and misquote somebody. You may also not be in a position as a newspaper to go and misquote somebody,” he said.
