The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it has noted with concern, an alleged attack on a journalist by one of its supporters, Hajia Fati.
A terse press statement issued in Accra yesterday, and signed by its acting General Secretary, John Boadu, said his party distances itself from the act and condemns it unreservedly.
“The party wishes to assure Ghanaian journalists that it respects and cherishes the role of the media as partners in development, and does not condone any action intended to suppress press freedom. No journalist should feel intimidated, and must continue to discharge his/her duties without fear.
“Though the New Patriotic Party has already begun an internal enquiry into the alleged incident, we will also cooperate with other agencies investigating same,” the statement noted.
