- It has been revealed that the main cause of NDC’s defeat in 2016 polls was that of greed and selfishness
- Former national organiser of the party says the party needs to check its internal structures
The quest to finding out what exactly caused the defeat of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) continues to linger on as a key member of the party who was the former national organiser of the party is making the case that greed and selfishness mainly caused the defeat of the party.
The opposition party has so far set up a special committee called the Kwesi Botchwey committee which has recently laid claim to various indecision affecting the party but according to Yaw Boateng Gyan, greed and the pursuit of personal interest caused the party so much in the 2016 elections.
According to him, claims that the current executives of the party inherited a weak system are unfounded and that the party would truly need to address the weak internal structures if it’s really bent on winning the 2020 elections.
“The leadership of the party we have today is not entirely different from what we used to win the 2008 and the 2012 elections. They are the same faces but just that they changed in positions”, he revealed in an interview with Okay Fm.
Ahead of the 2020 elections, there have been mixed reactions over whether former president Mahama will be contesting the elections as YEN.com.gh had recently reported of claims that John Mahama was secretly strategizing to be flagbearer of the party in the next elections.
Meanwhile, former majority leader of the party, Alban Bagbin has registered his keen interest of leading the party in the 2020 election making the case that he is the best person to lead the party from opposition to incumbency.
