National Democratic Congress' (NDC) Vice-Chairperson Anita DeSosoo has revealed that she garnered popularity as a political colossus through her pioneering contribution as a partisan serial caller in the early 2000s.
Madam Desosoo is a high-ranking of Ghana's largest opposition party but she does not seem like one who has forgotten her roots, as she claims on Accra-based NEAT FM.
According to the outspoken NDC stalwart, she together with some individuals within the NDC, started the serial caller's phenomenon in Ghana.
It was in the early 2000s and the NDC had been kicked out of power. Radio stations were also springing up with call-in programmes becoming a mainstay.
Their aim, Desosoo said, was to “rant” and “distract” the then NPP government led by former President John Agyekum Kufour from pursuing any meaningful agenda.
She said: “I am the Queen of serial callers and I know how my people behave. We speak on uninvited issues. Some doesn’t even make sense but we have to speak to that issue. You don’t need to invite us before we comment. We just want to be heard and be popular."
Anita Desoso made this comment after tagging Ghana’s second gentleman, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as a “serial hapless serial caller.”
