5 reasons why General Mosquito’s political career may soon die

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, is without doubt one of Ghana’s most experienced politicians.

His office is however, being on the line, as his deputy, Koku Anyidoho, has also expressed interest in serving as the party’s General Secretary.

As the race gets hotter by the day, Nketia, also known as General Mosquito, may soon part ways with politics in Ghana, if signals from the current political environment is anything to go by. The NDC is scheduled to elect its national officers on December 7, 2018.

1. Revelations by Bernard Allotey Jacobs

The Former Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has on a number of occasions, taken General Mosquito to the cleaners. He has levelled a number of accusations against him, all of which negatively affect the NDC scribe's chances.

2. Anyidoho – Deputy to Substantive

Koku Anyidoho, General Mosquito's deputy, has garnered a lot of experience in the course of his political career. This may come in as an advantage to him, and drag his boss' career to a stop.

3. Fresh face

It is not unusual for political parties to call for new people and in that respect, new ideas to help push the fortunes of the party to a preferred level. In that regard, Anyidoho may take advantage of the political wind and campaign for a youthful leadership of the party.

4. Advanced age

General Mosquito will turn 62 years in December 2018, and compared with Anyidoho's youthful look, may fall on experience to secure victory as NDC's General Secretary on December 7. 2018. A message to the effect that the party needs a youthful and energetic General Secretary to work may hinder General Mosquito's chances.

5. Rumours of a mafia group

Allotey Jacobs once hinted of the existence of a mafia group in the NDC, headed by General Mosquito.

Whether or not the allegation is true, General Mosquito may have an ardous challenge of convincing delegates that he is working in the interest of the party.
