General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has narrated how his son lost his job when the NPP came to power in 2017.
He said his son whom he mentioned as Kwaku had to be frustrated by the NPP when he was working at a private company at the Tema Port when the Akufo-Addo administration assumed power.
To him, the owners of the Stevedoring firm, his son was managing at the port had been threatened by some elements of the Akufo-Addo’s government to sack him else they risk losing their license.
“So I told Kwaku if your job will cause someone to lose his license, why not stop,” the NDC Chief Scribe told Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr Chat.
Asked why the said strong people in the NPP would pile such pressure on his son’s bosses, Asiedu Nketiah said the NPP said if they did not sack Kwaku, he would import ammunitions into the country to embark on a coup d’etat.
The NDC stalwart who is known as General Mosquito indicated that although he was not happy about the development, he did not go begging anyone in government to help his son land another job.
He recounted how his daughter, who was employed at the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Headquarters in Accra, was frustrated by the government to resign after the NDC lost the 2016 elections.
His daughter who had a Master’s Degree and had been employed on merit refused to be cowered but told them she had the qualification to be there and was not ready to leave.
Describing her as tough, Asiedu Nketiah revealed that his daughter had to be transferred to a district eventually to frustrate her more.
“We had to buy her a chair to use in her office,” he recounted and described the office as a “corridor” because there is virtually nothing for her to do at her new place.
Refuting claims that his children live abroad, General Mosquito said her daughter is still in the rural area the government transferred her to and is nearly done with her PhD.
To him, the NPP has targeted NDC persons who are in government institutions and cannot tell if the NDC will retaliate when they win power.
