- A pressure group, Young Democratic Forces (YDF), has accused Johnson Asiedu Nketia for masterminding the NDC's defeat in the 2016 elections
- According to the group, Nketia hid the party's 2016 campaign strategy from John Mahama
- This, they added, is because Mahama failed to support him during the party's 2014 internal elections
A pressure group, Young Democratic Forces (YDF), has blamed the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, for the party’s loss in the 2016 elections.
According to the YDF, Nketia, also known as General Mosquito, hid a “campaign strategy document for the 2016 General Election” from the former president and his aides.
“It is on record that the NDC sent a team to Akuse to prepare a Campaign Strategy Document for the 2016 general election, and when the report was completed, Asiedu-Nketia hid it from JM and his aides,” the group explained.

YDF further revealed that General Mosquito sought to orchestrate Mahama’s defeat as pay back, because Mahama backed another candidate to run against him (Nketia) during the party’s 2014 congress at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
And to further add insult to injury, YDF added, Asiedu Nketia emerged with a wide grin on his face "wearing a baseball cap backwards like Tupac having fun with his friends at a concert when JM was conceding defeat at his residence.”
YDF has thus called on the delegates to vote out Nketia for Koku Anyidoho to take over as the General Secretary of the NDC.
