The Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has called on the party to vote out the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
According to him, some executives are not working in the interest of the party, and should therefore be remove from office.
He went on to say that Nketia, also known as General Mosquito, is the leader of the group of people stifling the progress of the party ahead of the 2020 elections.
Speaking on Adom FM’s Current Affairs show, Burning Issues, on Monday, September 3, 2018, he said that “for me, I’m supporting Koku Anyidoho; there is a need for a change at the NDC headquarters. A lot of the mafia in the NDC headquarters must be changed.”
The NDC selected its new regional executives from Saturday, September 1 to Sunday, September 2, 2018.
Among the many surprises were the defeats of Former Transport Minister, Aku Dzifa Attivor, who failed in her bid to lead the NDC in the Volta Region, the Bismark Tawiah Boateng, who failed to retain his seat as Eastern Regional Chairman and Joseph Yammin, who was also defeated in the Ashanti Regional delegates elections
Allotey Jacobs warned that the party risks losing the elections in 2020, if the right measures are not implemented.
He however admitted that some people among the old crop of party executives exhibited commendable organizational skills and should be commended.
He also cautioned his party members about the strength of their opponents saying “the New Patriotic Party (NPP) must not be taken for a joke and I keep on saying it, and I will always say it because our experience in politics gives us the dynamics.
So if we don’t get the right people to stand up to the NPP, then forget it.”
Allotey Jacobs nonetheless exempted John Mahama from the leadership that needs to be changed.
In his opinion, all the other aspirants are all his former appointees and a student cannot be better than his tutor.
