The cracks in the opposition National Democratic Congress party is deepening by the day as former First National Vice-Chair, Anita Desoso has warned the National Executives to act fast else face the wrath of members.
Desoso, a former National Women’s Organiser of the National Democratic Congress vented her spleen on the leadership of the NDC caucus in Parliament for taking decisions contrary to the party’s.
Speaking with Kasapa Fm’s Bonohene, she urged the National Executives to change the leadership of the NDC in Parliament to save the caucus from further crisis.
According to her, if discipline is not restored in the party, she is ready to gather members to demonstrate against the National Executives.
“Do they want to kill us? Now that God has been good to us to have more representation in Parliament. What shows that in 2024 Ghanaians will have confidence in us. Ampofo sits up before it is too late or I will lead demonstration against the party executives.
I won’t blame NPP, I blame my own party leadership because it is in the right direction to cure your own sickness. Instead of the executives to make it a must for all members to pay their dues for the wellbeing of the party, they have neglected that initiative.
We didn’t talk when this fracas happened in 2016 and same thing is being repeated in 2021. The Judahs within the party are being exposed and it’s time to remove them. They have to change the leadership of the NDC caucus in parliament as early as possible to maintain discipline in the party or I will lead a demo against the party executives. If the executives refuse to change the leadership in parliament, we will change them when their tenure is over. You think the party is for an individual, it is for all of us.” Desoso stated
Anita Desoso’s appeal to the National Executives to make changes to the leadership of the NDC in parliament comes after some party executives have blamed the Minority caucus on the Appointment Committee of taking bribes to approve Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s appointees.
The former First National Vice-Chair’s claim seems to corroborate the resignation of North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa from the Parliament’s Appointments Committee.
She said Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa acted on his conscience and resigned to show the disapprobation of the betrayal by their leadership.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Wednesday held an adhoc meeting with the Council of Elders of the party and the entire Parliamentary Caucus following the recent confusion in parliament.
They met to address the concerns of the teeming members and supporters of the party.
There has been agitations following the disquiet and misgivings that characterised the approval of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s ministerial nominees by Parliament.
