Former Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Allottey Jacobs has revealed that he refused a call up to join the communications team of the party because he does not trust some of the other communications team members.
According to him, most of the other communication team members are not reliable and cannot be trusted to be team players that will work entirely in the interest of the party.
He said he was not carved out for the kind of communication that the NDC team embarks on, which includes the politics of insults in which young politicians take to insulting leadership.
His comments come on the back of the leaked audio which has since gone viral on both social and mainstream media in which the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is heard making very damning revelations on some moves the party intends to make in the lead up to the 2020 elections.
He is also heard revealing how they will make life unbearable for some Ghanaians, particularly members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), saying ‘’we will go after them. But we will not go after them face-to-face. We have to use tactical operation to make life uncomfortable for them. We will target some people and we will let the people know that their lives are in danger. They themselves will be careful. As for that one, I want to assure you that we will go all out to ensure that it happens. As president Mahama said, when it comes to this game, we are better than them’’.
That aside, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo in the tape also instigated and incited NDC party supporters and members against well-meaning Ghanaians including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa and the Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante.
