Asiedu Nketia was on Joy News’ PM Express yesterday to speak on the impasse between the Electoral Commission and the National Democratic Congress and the way forward. The estranged relationship between the 2 started right before the 2020 elections and this has dragged on forcing the NDC to walk out of the Inter Party Advisory Committee IPAC.
The sour relationship has come up again after the EC laid a CI before Parliament for the Ghana card to be made the sole document for the registering of Ghanaians for a voters’ ID. The NDC have called on the EC to amend their report or else the NDC will fight tooth and nail to get it rejected. The General Secretary explained that many Ghanaians are yet to get their Ghana cards and so such a measure will disenfranchise many people.
As the conversation continued, Evans Mensah asked Asiedu Nketia to respond to a comment made by president Akufo-Addo in an interview in the North. The President in an interview with Radio North Star has maintained that his ministers have been outstanding and as such there was no need to reshuffle them. The President mentioned that he receives reports on all his minister and can say that all is well. Interestingly, Akufo-Addo said the calls for changes and reshuffling are from the NDC who seek to destabilize his government.
Evans Mensah questioned Asiedu Nketia if the NDC seeks to destroy the government. This question got Asiedu Nketia laughing out so loud. The NDC maverick boldly stated that with the way the economy was in tatters, there was nothing to destabilize. He stated that the government has already been stabilized by her own appointees such that there is nothing for the NDC to destroy. According to Asiedu Nketia this comment was unfortunate and the President shouldn’t have said that as it will indict his own people.
