YEN.com.gh has learnt that the general secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress party has rubbished reports that the party is divided.
According to Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the high number of possible presidential candidates to lead the party in 2020 was a sign of strength and not disunity.
Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia explained that the interest shown in the presidential slot for the 2020 election by members of the umbrella family is an indication that the party is attractive.
The NDC scribe was reacting to the announcement by Alban Bagbin on his presidential ambition and desire to represent the NDC in 2020 on the Accra-based radio station, Rainbow Radio.
Asiedu Nketia rebutted saying that it was because the NDC was a united and “great” party, that was why many people were interested in representing the party. He questioned why no one was showing interest in the same position in other political parties.
“This in my opinion shows that you cannot become the President of Ghana with these political parties. This is good for the party. It gives a strong indication that the NDC is strong and has not collapsed as speculated by some faceless individuals.”
He however maintained that the NDC wasn’t yet choosing any leadership so the current rumors should be taken with a pinch of salt.
“We have not started any competition yet…It is good that people are speculating and it also shows that Ghanaians are highly disappointed in the New Patriotic Party’s government. It is an encouragement for all of us,” he concluded.
