The NDC Chairman has come in for strong criticism after an audio in which he was allegedly inciting violence leaked.

On the tape, the NDC Chairman allegedly urged the party’s communicators to target the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa.

He is also heard allegedly inciting them to insult the Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rev. Emmanuel Asante.

In another part, he is again heard admitting that the NDC had a ballot box protection unit in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency during the by-election.

But speaking after being granted bail, Mr. Ampofo said he is a man of peace, adding that the NDC “will not undermine the peace and stability of this country.”
