- NDC's Central Regional Chairman, Allotey Jacobs, has advised the party's General Secretary, General Mosquito, to resign
- According to Allotey Jacobs, General Mosquito needs to leave to pave way for others to contribute to the party
- He said that NDC needs youthful ideas to pull it out of opposition
The Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has called on the party’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, to retire.
Speaking on Okay FM, Allotey Jacobs argued that there is the need for Asiedu Nketiah, better known as General Mosquito, to give way for fresh ideas for the party.
He added that other equally capable people who are endowed with new ideas have to move the party forward.
In his opinion, there is a new breed of political youths who appeal more to the new generation of electorates and can therefore bring in more votes.
Such people, he went on, should be allowed to contest the available positions in the party.
“Asiedu Nketia’s time is over. His time has elapsed. His presence is preventing younger people in the party from contesting various positions, a situation which is very worrying,” he lamented bitterly.
He went on to say that “There are younger people in the party who are capable of working so they should stop the musical chairs and shifting cultivation and allow new people in the party [to contest],” he added.
Allotey Jacob’s comments follow those of General Mosquito, who has revealed his intention to contest for his position as General Secretary.
According to General Mosquito, he is the best person to pull the party out of position.
He explained that he stands tall and unmatched when it comes to the party’s history and operational strategies.
But Allotey Jacobs, who accused General Mosquito of being the cause of the defeat of the NDC in the Central Region, says he prefers Koku Anyidoho who is the Deputy General Secretary to General Mosquito.
