General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has urged supporters of the party to stop verbal attacks on Members of Parliament (MPs) representing the party in the law-making chamber over their failure to reject some minister-designates nominated by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
The NDC Chief Scribe said the issue was “dead and gone” and asked the party’s grassroot to let it go and rather channel their energies on exposing the rots of the Akufo-Addo administration hindering the development of the country.
Speaking to Dwaboase host Kwame Minkah on Power 97.9 FM Tuesday morning, Asiedu Nketiah who is also known as ‘General Mosquito’ noted that the invectives from party supporters on their MPs does not only undermine their personality but obstruct them from performing their parliamentary duties.
“I am teling the NDC members to leave the MPs alone so they can hold this government to account. We have work to do…The issues are dead and gone and we don’t need to be holding on to them,” Asiedu Nketiah cautioned.
His advice comes after the Appointments Committee of Parliament recommended for approval the nomination of Mr Ken Ofori-Atta as the Minister of Finance.
The approval was to the chagrin of thousands of NDC members who wanted the Finance Minister out over what they decribe as messing up the economy.
Barely 2 weeks ago, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah appealed to the rank and file of the party to “remain circumspect when the need for reaction arise.” his was after Ofori-Atta’s approval was announced in Parliament.
He said “the Party leadership as well as the Council of Elders have engaged in extensive consultations with the view to adopt a common position based on the exigencies of the situation.”
