Vote for Asiedu Nketia and lose 2020 elections – Allotey Jacobs warns NDC
Former Central Regional Chairman of the oppostion National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, says the party stands to lose the 2020 general elections should delegates vote for Johnson Asiedu Nketia to retain his position as General Secretary.
Making his submissions on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme, Wednesday, Allotey Jacobs expressed no hope in the fortunes of the NDC so far as Johnson Asiedu Nketia, popularly called General Mosquito, remains in the leadership cadre of the party.
According to him, Mr. Asiedu Nketia has grown wings and doesn’t “respect leadership” at all.
The utterances of the NDC incumbent General Secretary, in Allotey Jacobs’ voice, “stinks” so bad that it’s unfit of a character as the General Secretary of a major opposition party, yearning to come back to power, come 2020.
“He doesn’t respect leadership. Asiedu Nketia doesn’t respect leadership…I’m in my party; I say he doesn’t respect leadership. He undermined me but that’s past tense. We’ve all paid for it but he doesn’t respect leadership. Now, he appears to be NDC. He’s all-in-all NDC…Let’s forget 2020 if we vote for Asiedu Nketia”, he blurted out.
He reiterated his choice for Koku Anyidoho, Deputy General Secretary, of the party to be voted as the substantive General Secretary of the NDC.
He alluded to the commitment of Koku Anyidoho which saw the NDC come to power under the Mills-Mahama regime.
Allotey Jacobs noted that he and his constituents will ensure that Asiedu Nketia misses his out on being elected as General Secretary, stating emphatically that though he (Allotey) is no longer a Chairman, he however has a “base. People sometimes forget. I have a base and I have thousands of followers. And they will listen to my voice and will vote for the right people”.
