Kojo Adu Asare, a presidential staffer, says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will no dissociate itself from comments by former transport minister, Dzifa Attivor, which were deemed tribal.
Mr Adu-Asare told Accra-based Citi FM over the weekend that the NDC shared Mrs Attivor's views.
“Whatever statement she made… from our perspective and how we saw and understood her, I don’t see anything different from what we know. Because we have been in this country where at cabinet level, Upper West didn’t have representation in cabinet.
“That regime also went through. So if somebody is making inferences from references like that why would you want to tag the person as being tribalistic and ethnocentric? Ask the NPP how many Ewes, Gas; Akans were in their cabinet, do the analysis, why do we want to portray this as if this is not happening,” he said.

Mrs Attivor provoked outrage when she said during the launch of a group called ‘Ketu South For Fifi And Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South district of the Volta Region on Tuesday, that the NPP targeted only members of her ethnic group for prosecution.
She added that if the Volta Region did not vote for the NDC, she would end up in jail with an NPP government in power.
