- NDC has officially distanced itself from Spio Gabrah’s recent claims against the NPP
- Spio Garbrah has stated that the NPP is an ethnic-centered party
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has distanced itself from the ethnocentric comments of its leading member and former trade minister, Ekow Spio Garbrah.
Spio Garbrah has argued that the NPP is nothing but a party rooted in ethnic-based politics and that even top executives of the party believe that only five regions of the country can produce a president for Ghana.
But reacting to these claims by Spio Garbrah has seen the National Democratic Congress (NDC) distance itself saying the comments are not the sole preserve of the party but rather the former trade minister.
Deputy general secretary of the party, Koku Anyidoho say that the words of Spio Garbrah does not represent that of the party and that they (the NDC) are yet to verify his claims of the NPP being ethnocentric.
“That is his personal view and I do not think that is the position of NDC,I speak for National Executives and Dr. Spio-Garbrah view is entitled to him alone,“ he revealed in an interview with Kumasi-based Nhyira FM’s.
Meanwhile, Ekow Spio Garbrah has publicly declared his interest in leading the NDC in the 2020 presidential election saying that his experience and exposure gives him the urge over other contenders of the party.
He remains part of a list of top-notched NDC officials like Joshua Alabi and Alban Bagbin who have also registered their interest in leading the party.
