A former vice chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dan Abodapki, is concerned about what he fears to be the imminent collapse of the party.

“I believe the NDC can deal with the issues in the country. I believe the NDC has the power to become the dominant force in the time to come. We must deal with the ills of the country,” he stated.
