General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has lashed out at NDC presidential candidate hopeful, Professor Joshua Alabi, saying he cannot set rules for the party.
General Mosquito as the NDC chief Scribe is popularly known was reacting to complaints by the Jashua Alabi campaign team that the party’s anthem is often substituted for a song that was composed for former president John Dramani Mahama during the 2016 elections at party events.
They argue that the trend gives the former president who is also contesting the flabeararship slot an added advantage over the other candidates.
But the party’s General Secretary has not taken kindly to the issues raised by the Joshua Alabi team.
According to him, the learned professor and his team should wait for the party to come out with the rules of engagement, adding that at the end of the day, they may find out that even they have breached the rules.
“You are coming to contest for flagbearership, we haven’t given you the rules of engagement and you have decided to dictate what rules we should work with. How possible is that? That is why I am saying that the presidential race we haven’t gotten there yet so he should slow down and not try to dictate to us” he said.
General Mosquito who was speaking on an Accra based radio station and monitored by BestNewsGH.com, advised the team to wait and voice their concerns after the party has set out the rules of engagement.
