Expelled former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho, has vowed to do everything in his power to stop long-time General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, from becoming the party’s Chairman.
According to Anyidoho, General Mosquito, as the popular politician is sometimes known, has no good intentions for running for party Chairman other than to fulfil his ‘personal perfidious ambition’.
Anyidoho took aim at Asiedu Nketia in a series of tweets vowing to retake his party from elements who have hijacked it for their own purposes.
“Asiedu-Nketiah, as National Chairman and Leader of NDC? Kai!!! I thought Asiedu-Nketiah wanted to be General Secretary for life! Why does he now want to become National Chairman? He only wants to become National Chairman so he can use Article 25 of the Party’s Constitution to become Leader, and pursue his personal perfidious ambition,” Anyidoho roared.
The President of the Atta Mills institute said despite the fact that current Chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo has failed in his mandate, Asiedu Nketia is definitely not the answer.
“Article 25 of the NDC’S constitution states that, when we are in opposition and not elected a Flagbearer, the National Chairman doubles as the Leader of the Party. Currently we have no Flagbearer. Ofosu-Ampofo has failed to be Leader but Asiedu-Nketiah is NOT the alternative.
“Asiedu-Nketiah is the most poisonous and destructive element within the top of the NDC and he shall be exposed and NOT allowed to become National Chairman and Leader of the Party of Jerry John Rawlings.” Anyidoho concluded.
His statement comes after recently bloviating that despite being sacked from the party, he still remains a member.
Anyidoho said no one has sacked him and no one can sack him from the NDC.
Meanwhile, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has responded to rumours that he’s planning to run for party Chairmanship by stipulating that, no position in the party belongs to any person and when the time comes, they will all contest for the positions they are interested in.
