Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Koku Anyidoho has rubbished claims by Madam Joyce Bawa Mogtari that seek to suggest that the NDC wouldn’t be bothered should the New Patriotic Party continue to rule Ghana for the next eight years.
The spokesperson for former President Mahama had earlier revealed on Starr fm that the beauty of Ghana’s democracy could make it possible for the current administration to rule the nation from 2016 to 2024.
In an interview on the radio station, she stated that “well I don’t really mind if NPP rules for eight (8) years, it is democracy and really not an issue. When they lost, you can imagine how they felt when we moved into Flagstaff House and I know the feeling… We’ve all been there and that is the beauty of our democracy.”
But Mr. Koku Anyidoho has vehemently refused to buy into any of her suggestions.
Reacting to the news on Peace fm’s Evening News, the NDC scribe noted that the party is prepping to return to power in the shortest possible time.
Contrary to the views shared by Madam Joyce Bawa Mogtari, Mr. Koku Anyidoho posits that she isn’t the official mouthpiece of the NDC and entreated the general public to take her comment with a pinch of salt.
“Our own investigations show that we are ready to come back to power in 2020…she has just shared her taught which doesn’t reflect the views of the NDC.
She has no authority to speak for the NDC…Our National Chairman is our leader and the secretariat is still working”, he said to discredit the suggestions of Bawa Mogtari.
He advised her to stick to her job of speaking for ex-president Mahama and not to assume her new role permits her to speak for the party.
“She can speak for the former president but shouldn’t speak for the NDC. The former president only announced she speaks for him but the party hasn’t said so. She only expressed her views and not that of the party”, he said.
Mr. Koku Anyidoho reveled that though the NDC was in opposition,
they are working very hard from the national to regional level in order to bounce back to early.
