This caution comes in the wake of criticism of former President, John Dramani Mahama’s selection of Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, a former Education Minister, as his running mate.

The team reminded communicators to refrain from making references to their opponents’ gender, ethnicity or religion while campaigning.

“The President of the Republic of Ghana and presidential candidate of the NPP and the 2020 campaign team, wish to remind its faithfuls that the party’s philosophy of positive engagement still holds valid.

“We, therefore, urge all who speak for or purport to speak for the party to refrain from attacking political opponents. We specifically ask that no reference should ever be made to opponents’ ethnicity, religion or gender.”

Below is the statement from the office of the NPP’s 2020 Campaign team 

CAMPAIGN ON OUR RECORD- NPP CAMPAIGN TEAM TO COMMUNICATORS

The President of the Republic of Ghana and presidential candidate of the NPP and the 2020 campaign team, wish to remind its faithfuls, that the party’s philosophy of positive engagement still holds valid.

We therefore urge all who speak for, or purport to speak for the party to refrain from attacking political opponents. We specifically ask that no reference should ever be made to opponents’ ethnicity, religion or gender.

We shall campaign on our record and win. Indeed, there is enough to speak about with regard to our record. We cannot beat our opponents in the politics of calumny. Let us therefore refrain.
