Speaking with the Accra-based radio station, Starr FM, a group which identified itself as the "Aggrieved Youth of NDC" issued this ultimatum.
“We are giving Sidii three days within which he should come out and tell the NDC youth because of his negligence, selfish interest, because of inability to explore what was given to him, he was sabotaged or rendered incapable by external and internal forces hence the inability to work to the expectation else he should keep quiet and sleep and never dare to contest any position in NDC”, they threatened.
Kwabena Eduful, the leader of the aggrieved says Sidii Abubakar, the youth organizer of NDC failed to mobilize and energize young democrats of the party.
And the group believes that Sidii’s failure resulted in former president John Mahama's massive loss to President Nana Akufo-Addo.

"Sammy Awuku overshadowed Sidii Abubakar . An opposition youth organizer who has no resources, what prevented Sidii to be sponsored by the government of the day? Sidi is nothing but a failure even the fact that John Dumelo was chosen instead of Sidi to speak at the party’s campaign launch in Cape Coast shows clearly, he was not in charge"
According to the group , Sidii has disappointed many youth in the party and will never be forgiven should he fail to provide tangible reasons to his leadership and the ‘impotency’ exhibited during the 2016 polls.
The group also stated that it was redundant for the NDC to have formed a 13-member committee to investigate the cause of the party’s defeat to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 elections. The group says, the cause of the party’s defeat needs no probe because the reasons are already known to all and sundry.
