Leading Member and communications team member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Felix Dugbatey has lampooned the general secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, describing him as someone who has depreciated more that the local currency the cedi.
According to him, the General Secretary has single handedly caused the party a lot of havoc including hoarding campaign cash and logistics culminating in the party’s abysmal showing in the 2016 general elections.
He said Mr. Asiedu Nketiah has turned himself into a dummy god at the party’s headquarters and has lost respect for even the founder of the party, former president Jerry John Rawlings and other eminent persons in the party, adding that he treats the party as though it was his personal property.
‘’On Saturday we will retire him so that he will go and continue with his palmwine tapping business. It is a business he was doing before and so he can go back and continue. He can also decide to go and continue with his block factory business. But as for remaining the as General Secretary of the NDC, he is gone already’’ he said.
Mr. Dugbatey continued ‘’Mr. Asiedu Nketiah’s 13 year tenure has been characterized by a disconnect between the party’s top and grassroots and that partly and significantly contributed to the loss of the party in the last general elections. He has developed some aura of arrogance around him. He labelled the founder of the party a barking dog. Some chiefs from the Atebubu area came to the party headquarters and he chased them away as they he was chasing away fowls’’.
