The Latest Power Battle Within The NDC Camp Revealed In Bold Letters

Paul Adom Otchere, the host of Good Evening Ghana program on Metro Television never disappoints when it comes to producing gist in the camp of the National Democratic Congress. Even though Members of the party have on numerous occasions disagreed with him that does not tickle him in a bit.  

Another gossip is here and it’s about how some top executives in the NDC are fighting for power. The party’s internal election is getting near and everyone seems to be lacing their boot for the battle ahead. It is already an open secret that Mr. John Dramani Mahama will contest the presidential primaries even though he has not confirmed for now. But if he will contest, then a formidable team of executives will be required to work with him for victory in 2024.

Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketsia remains the General Secretary of the party. He has led the NDC to win some elections and lost others. But we do not know if he will be contesting the position of General Secretary again. However, rumors making round indicates that he is preparing to face Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo in the Chairmanship race. But there is a tie. Information has it that the former Minister for Finance Mr. Fiifi Kwetey is also interested in the position of General Secretary.

Mr. John Dramani Mahama is rumored to be in support of Fiifi Kwetey behind the scenes and Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketsia might lose if he contests General Secretary Position. With this analogy, Mr. Asiedu Nketsia has no other option than to go for the chairmanship. But there is a challenge as we do not know John Mahama’s choice between Asiedu Nketsia and Samuel Ofosu Ampofo. John Dramani Mahama is being mentioned here because he currently has the resources to support candidates he desires even though delegates decide the next crop of executives for the party. We cannot rule out the fact that the choice of John Mahama will win.

With these permutations, the next position for Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketsia is currently in a dilemma, and that could have triggered his decision to lead the latest press conference and why he mounted the ballot box during the election petition. He is obviously trying to market himself for the position.

Paul Adom Otchere did not mince words when he indicated on the latest edition of his program that Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketsia has already been sacked from the position of General Secretary because someone else is being prepared to unseat him.

“You have been sacked from the position. John Mahama is supporting Fiifi Kwetey and so Asiedu Nketsia is out and wants to fight for the national chairmanship position. So he is using press conferences to launch his campaign for the national chairmanship position which Ofosu Ampofo wants. JM wants to win 2024 and does not want people like Asiedu Nketsia in his team”. He revealed in bold letters.
