Vice-president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has urged Ghanaians to speak out against the politics of hypocrisy and double standards, which he argues undermines the virtues of truth.

He made this known at Agona Swedru in the Central Region at the launch of the party.

He said “It is the empty vessel that makes the most noise. The NPP has accused the NDC of not achieving anything in government. President Mahama has released the Green Book, our achievements as a government can be seen in that Green Book. While members of the NPP were insulting us, we were working. From now onwards, if they say one, we’ll say two. The NDC’s achievements in government are more than those of the NPP.”

The vice president who used the occasion to attend the annual convention of the Musama Disco Christo Church at Gomoa Mozano in the Central Region said, "I am committed to peace. I do not believe in confrontation politics or politics of insults. That is why I need to correct the confusion in a statement I made in Agona Swedru last Friday. I was stating my strong belief that this Government has a superior record of accomplishment and delivery. Therefore if the opposition mentions one achievement of theirs, we will mention twice (or three times) their number to point our achievements, particularly as captured in the Green Book."

He noted that  “President Mahama, the government he leads, and the party that has nominated him for president are committed to peace and we expect all political actors to commit themselves to peace, and the church has a role to play to continue to teach and to preach a message of peace so that we can have peaceful elections.”
