- Koku Anyidoho has branded Ambassador Victor Smith as a coward politician
- He is daring him to petition NDC against his former boss, President Rawlings
The Deputy Chief Scribe of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has described former Ghana’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Victor Smith as a coward politician who makes comments from sidelines.
According to him, Victor Smith is refusing to condemn his former boss, Jerry Rawlings over his numerous unpalatable comments against the NDC and its leadership.
Anyidoho has also accused the NDC top member of indicting National Executives of the party over some recent internal wrangling in the party.
Ambassador Victor Smith, is on record to have warned the NDC it will be unfair for party leadership to bring disciplinary action against former Attorney General, Martin Amidu whiles leaving out the party’s founder, Jerry Rawlings.
He is reported to have said, utterances of both Martin Amidu and Rawlings gravely contributed to the humiliating defeat of the NDC in the 2016 elections.
But speaking on Okay FM today, Mr Anyidoho insisted that, Victor Smith must desist from passing comments from touchlines, and rather petition the NDC against Mr Rawlings, if he claims to be a brave man.
Mr Anyidoho says Victor Smith’s recent comments about Jerry Rawlings are empty and lack brevity.
“If he is a man enough he should also bring a petition against Rawlings and stop being a coward on the touchlines. He has worked with Rawlings before and what prevents him from petitioning against him”, he fumed.
The NDC Deputy Secretary challenged Mr Smith to move beyond rhetoric and wage war against his former boss, if he believes his utterances are causing more damage to the NDC.
He also insisted that, issues raised against Martin Amidu recently are based on petition brought against him by some two NDC members, therefore he [Victor Smith] should do same, if he really wants Rawlings to be sanction.
