NDC members vow to ‘sacrifice’ their firstborns if they sell out their party in the 2024 elections


A shocking video has emerged online showing some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) swearing an oath of loyalty to the party with a sword, ahead of the 2024 general elections.

The video, which has gone viral on social media, shows former Director of Elections for the NDC, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, and several others, pledging to remain faithful to the party and its agenda, or face death and the loss of their first born children.

The oath swearing was led by a man in white, who held a sword and made Mr Ankrah and the others repeat after him.

“By this sword, I vow, that if I compromise, and sell my party out for money for this coming election, may I die and my first born also die in my place, so help me God. Amen,” Mr Ankrah said, holding the sword upright, while barefooted.

The video is believed to be part of the efforts by the NDC to ensure that its members do not betray the party or its flagbearer, John Mahama, who is seeking to return to power after losing the 2020 election to the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The NDC has accused the NPP of destroying the country and failing to deliver on its promises, and has vowed to boot it out of power at all cost.

However, many people who have seen the video have expressed concern about the severity of the oath and the involvement of the children of the party members in something they are not part of.

Some have questioned the legality and morality of the oath, and whether it violates the rights and dignity of the children.

Others have also wondered whether the oath is a sign of desperation or commitment by the NDC, and whether it will have any impact on the outcome of the 2024 election.

According to the Electoral Commission of Ghana, the 2024 general election is scheduled to be held on 7 December, to elect the president and members of parliament.

The NDC and the NPP are the two dominant parties in Ghanaian politics, having alternated in power since the return to multiparty democracy in 1992.
