He stated that the NDC will risk opening a Pandora's box if some members don't stop pointing fingers at others.
On Friday December 9, 2016, the NDC's John Mahama lost his presidential seat after only one term in office to the NPP's Nana Akufo-Addo. This painful defeat of the NDC has led some disappointed members including the former Municipal Chief Executive of Ejisu Juaben to drop names of certain government officials whom they claim have a hand in why NDC lost the elections.
Speaking in an interview on Okay FM, the current Deputy National Coordinator of NADMO urged members of the party to restrain themselves from divisive antics while the party recovered from its defeat.
He said, "This is an eye opener for us as a political party, we need to re-organize ourselves as soon as possible. To me, I’ll advise Yamoah Ponkoh and others to stop dropping names of people they accuse of causing NDC’s defeat. If we sit down in a room and have a discussion over the matter, there’ll be a lot for me to say. In an enclosed place, if we have to beat someone for causing this painful defeat that we have suffered, we’ll do so. But to wash our dirty linen in public, I think that we’ll not be doing ourselves any good.”
