Rapid News Gh -NDC

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has stated that the party’s outgoing leadership in Parliament will not be sidelined in the party’s activities leading up to the 2024 elections.

According to him, the old executives possess key qualities that the party will require to win power in the next election.

Reshuffled of Leadership by NDC

The NDC reshuffled its leadership in Parliament earlier this week, replacing Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu with Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.

Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, MP for Ellembelle, also took over as Deputy Minority Leader from Ketu North MP, James Klutse Avedzi, and Kwame Governs Agbodza took over as Minority Chief Whip from Asawase MP, Muntaka Mubarak.

Several NDC MPs, including MP for Bolgatanga East, Dominic Ayine, and Tamale Central MP, Murtala Muhammed, have condemned the leadership changes as undemocratic.

Mr. Asiedu Nketiah told Citi News that while the decision may not be popular, it is in the best interests of the party.

Mr. Asiedu Nketiah Explain their Reasons

“We are making this decision because it will not harm us. All of the people involved are very good friends of mine, but we have to make a decision because we have leadership responsibilities. And because we cannot fail the nation, we will fall back on anyone’s talent and assign him the duty to discharge. Those who are leaving the front lines of our Parliamentary leadership are not out of the picture. We may need them in other capacities, and we will seek them out to fulfill those responsibilities,” Mr. Asiedu Nketiah stated.

44 MPs signed a petition opposing the party’s decision. The 44 members believe the decision by the party is unfair and unpopular.

However, 77 MPs are said to have signed a separate petition in support of the party’s decision.
