Murtala Mohammed, the former member of parliament for Nanton constituency has said the National Democratic Congress will fail to make a comeback anytime soon if they do not turn onto a new path.
According to him, until the party stops making efforts to please the ruling New Patriotic Party, there is no hope of regaining power again in the foreseeable future.
Speaking on Radio Gold's Alhaji and Alhaji show last Saturday, Murtala stated, "the NDC is at crossroads now. Let us stop pretending to appear like decent politicians who want to be seen and praised by the NPP and that we are doing different kind of politics. If we continue with this attitude then we must as well be preparing to come back to power in the next 30 to 40 years."
The former deputy minister of Trade and Industry in the erstwhile Mahama administration further remarked on the Minority's participation in parliament, especially on the reaction to the Appointments Committee bribery scandal report.
“It simply doesn’t make sense. What interest do you have to please somebody who is engaged in wrong? Whose interest will it serve and that there should be a political gerrymandering to impose leaders because people have an agenda either in 2016 or 2020? Let’s get serious because that won’t work.
There isn’t any division and this is not an attempt to undermine the leadership of the Minority. It is to expose the NPP and the very people who are engaged in corrupt acts who have accused us of corruption throughout," he added.
