Leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Victor Smith has sounded a note of caution that the NDC is ready to fight back should the governing NPP and the Electoral Commission decide to rig the December 7 elections.

According to him, contrary to what former President Mahama said that they’ll fight government ‘boot for boot’, he suggests they rather face the NPP government ‘fire for fire.’

Speaking in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ reporter, Deborah Busumbru, the former Ghanaian High Commissioner to the UK warned the government not to attempt perpetuating violence as it did with the Ayawaso West Wuogon incident, else, face their wrath.

“……President Mahama said boot for boot,[but] I am mentioning fire for fire. If those guys misbehave, we will face them on Election Day. Let the worse happen. Because we cannot allow one party to design some communist inferior tactics to hold on to power, whether the people like it or not, that won’t happen. So they should listen and listen well, you bring chaos into Ghana, the professionals will take over the country and that’s their business. You kick me I kick you, you fire me I fire you back, that’s what I mean so don’t misbehave,” he warned.

Victor Smith further accused the Akufo-Addo-led government of recruiting party foot soldiers into the country’s security agencies.

He believes the move by the President for his party members to police the December 2020 elections, is a recipe for chaos.

“The training of those vigilantes, we know what they want to do with those ones, we’re ready for them but then when there’s a clash between the big parties on Election Day and you destabilize this country as a result, then the professionals have no choice but to come in to restore peace and stability of our country. Who caused it? You, you’re the one training vigilantes when we have professional men, the military and the police, why aren’t you using them. Why are you training extra people?” he quizzed.

“My concern is that the intention is to use these ones to police the elections instead of the regular professional men and women of the Ghana Armed Forces and the police.  So they’re using their party apparatchiks and party foot soldiers in uniform improperly trained to handle weapons and other equipment to police election at every polling station and that is a recipe for disaster because NDC, we’re tougher than they think we are. We’re tougher than them,” he added.

According to him, government has already recruited about a thousand five hundred people into the prisons service without any advertisement.

He opined that “In fact, they’re recruiting and I’m stating on record that they’re still recruiting people without advertising. In the last year alone they’ve recruited about 1500 prison officers, it was never advertised. It was people who come from their constituencies and branches, NPP people who are being recruited. They go to the borstal institute and they’ve done medical checks, they’re given letters appointing them as staff of the prisons of Ghana. And they’re doing the same thing for the military and for the police”.
