Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama, Presidential hopeful of the People's National Convention (PNC) on Tuesday blamed and condemned the NPP and the NDC for being responsible for the political violence that took place in Tamale and Gushiegu last Sunday. He said instead of the leadership of the two parties creating jobs for the youth they were rather creating unemployment by erecting party sheds and buying for their supporters playing cards and draughts, thus allowing them to idle under the sheds and resort to violence.

Dr Mahama, who expressed these concerns in an interview with the electorate to vote them out, come December 7, to ensure peace. He said it was only in the three Northern Regions that the building of sheds had become a common phenomenon because of the ever increasing unemployment situation, adding: "It is a pity that, politicians are using our unemployed youth for their selfish gains."

"I visited the sites where both NDC and NPP property, as well as stores of some innocent traders had been destroyed and I condemn the two political parties NDC for being responsible for the destruction," he emphasized.

Dr Mahama said if Ghanaians chose the PNC as the alternative to the two "violent parties", they would learn lessons and respect the people if they manage to come back to power in future".

The PNC Presidential candidate is on a tour of the Northern Region to explain the party's development agenda to the electorate to enhance its chances of wrestling power from the ruling NPP.
