‘We have learnt bitter lessons after the 2020 elections. I can assure you. NDC will not allow votes intended to change the regime go waste’ – that’s the firm assurance rom the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah who was speaking on Accra based TV XYZ and Power FM, noted with concern the scheming government is rolling out to manipulate the processes towards the 2024 general elections said, the NDC party and its agents are wild awake, tracking every move and will put adequate mechanisms in place to block any attempt to circumvent the will of the people.
There are many things President Nana Akufo Addo and his government are doing that don’t add up he emphasized, explaining that the President’s actions and pronouncements lately raises a lot of eyebrows about leadership and responsibilities.
“I have given up on Akufo Addo. I have said this on three other platforms. I want to repeat. We need a medical board to examine the President to see if the ship of the state is in safe hands.’ – he told host of Dwaboase, Kwame Minka.
Asked why such strong words, he continue …’Do you want to die before you realize you are on a dangerous path? -the NDC National Chairman quizzed sarcastically.
He explained that when old people speak, it must reflect wisdom.
‘When Kufuor, referring to the former President speaks, he touches hearts, but when others do it reflects their youthful lifestyle and their actions irrespective of their age, position or thinking process” – he added.
Chairman General, as Mr Asiedu Nketia is popularly referred to justified his claims with some recent incidents.
“the day he said at Assin North, during the campaign for NPP candidate in the bye-elections that, his own candidate has no value and must not be voted for made me feel he is not in his right frame of mind because he did same at Odoododiodooo during the 2020 elections. And the pattern of clearing appointees even before investigations is worrying”
He also took a swipe at the President for his recent condemnation of the NDC youth wing for brandishing offensive weapons under the guise of a clean up exercise at the former President’s office to ward off a planned picketing by pro-NPP group, FixingTheCountry led by NPP deputy Director of Communications, Owusu Bempah.
“If you believe in the sanctity of a private property, no one should violate your privacy. And if your party members plan to go on a demonstration at a private facility and you did not call them to order but people exercise a constitutional right to defend themselves you find it wrong, then what is he talking about?. ..Thats why I say I have given up on Nana Akufo Addo.. he added.
