Confusion Rocks NDC As ‘Atta Mills Boys’ Fight Ofosu-Ampofo; Muntaka, Bagbin Take On Sammy Gyamfi

Published

on


Somewhere in the Daboya-Mankarigu Constituency, the constituency chairman of the National Democratic Congress and ten other branch executives are in a tussle with other constituency executives over their future in the party.

The situation, according to a report by Nkilgi FM has created deep cracks within the party in the constituency and if a quick-fix is not done, it could cost the party in the 2024 elections with some key members threatening to break away.

On a normal day, this would have caught the attention of the National Executive Committee of the party and a team would have been dispatched to resolve the situation.

But things are hardly normal in the NDC now. The cracks in the Daboya-Mankarigu Constituency are also being felt at the national level.

The party is on the cusp of a breakaway with a plethora of issues confronting it now.

The party is currently dealing with the tantrums by the perceived ‘Mills Boys’ who, despite being suspended from the party, continue to spit venom from over the wall.

Allotey Jacobs, the former Central Regional Chairman of the party and Koku Anyidoho, the former Deputy General Secretary of the party who were both close allies of the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills have been ostracized from the party in what they both consider to be a persecution of the Mills boys, a claim flatly rejected by Baba Jamal, the Director of Legal Affairs for the party.

On Monday, March 15, Allotey and Anyidoho took their frustrations on the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo.

Koku Anyidoho fired first, labelling Ofosu-Ampofo as a coward: “I am saying that Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, stop sitting down there and talking about Koku Anyidoho and Allotey Jacobs. You are a coward, Ofosu-Ampofo is a coward. If he is a man he should get up and condemn this nonsense and let’s move on,” he fumed.

Allotey who claims to have retired from the party also joined with a barrage of insults and allegations, “Ofosu Ampofo behaves like a toddler, he thinks we don’t know that he is nurturing an ambition to become the flagbearer of the party”.

Ofosu-Ampofo will not let it pass so he also fires back “As we speak, they have all been suspended from the party. If you wish that we take further actions against them following their action we will listen. We will go and look at exactly what has to be done to ensure sanity.

“Only last week, a newspaper published with the headline ‘John Mahama you are no longer leader of the NDC, hand over to Ofosu Ampofo to come and redeem the party’ which was attributed to Koku Anyidoho.

“It is not Koku Anyidoho who will teach us what the NDC’s constitution says. We have a constitution and we know what the constitution says.”

While this is ongoing, Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer of the party is being flayed by Alban Bagbin and Muntaka Mohammed for comments he made about them.

Bagbin retorted first with a message to Sammy Gyamfi that “because I say I belong or came from a party, does he [Sammy Gyamfi] think I’m at the beck and call of the party?” he asked.

“Now, I don’t belong to any party. I’m Speaker of Ghana. I’m not a Speaker of NPP. I’m not a Speaker of NDC. I’m Speaker of Ghana. And I must hold the balance. So, decision-taking; no. My duty is to ensure that there’s an even playing field and the decision is taken and I announce it. That is all,” he explained his role.

Muntaka, the Minority Chief Whip in a separate interview said, “Every member of parliament swore an oath to uphold the constitution. The mandate of every member of parliament overruns his party. The mandate of every member of parliament is above the interest of the party because after the election you don’t only represent the party but everyone in your constituency. Your party is just one leg so anything from your party is just an advice. You should remember that the buck stops with you the MP.”

#FixTheCountry Campaign Is Just Politics As Usual – Obiri Boahene

Published

on


Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen says the ongoing fix the country protest is mere politics.

According to him, anyone who has followed politics for a longtime and understands the game will easily recognise that those behind the campaign are just doing politics.

Mr Obiri Boahen further claimed the persons behind the campaign were the same people who had been against many of government’s policies, including the new voters’ registration, free SHS, among others.

“For me, it’s just politics as usual because this same group of people were against most of government’s policies including the new voter registration exercise among others. Even the Free SHS and the creation of new regions were profusely rejected by these same people”, he said on Atinka FM.

It’s An Insult To The Ordinary Ghanaian To Say NDC Behind #FixTheCountry Protest – Ras Mubarak

Published

on


Former Kumbungu lawmaker, Ras Mubarak has slammed persons within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who continue to claim the fix the country campaign was triggered by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Ghanaians on social media, particularly, twitter have been demanding that government address the many social issues in the country using the hashtag #fixthecountry.

However, some members of the NPP including its National Chairman, Freddy Blay have said the NDC are the ones fueling the campaign.

In reaction, Ras Mubarak believes it’ll be an insult to the average Ghanaian who struggle to make ends meet under the NPP administration to attribute the campaign to NDC.

To him, the campaign is an indication that Ghanaians are fed up with the hardships under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.

“NDC not behind it. The NDC was not the party that started this. This is a spontaneous reaction to bad governance so if they continue to disrespect Ghanaians in these terms, it might exacerbate,” he said on Asaase Radio’s The Bulletin Programme.

“In fact, to say that the NDC is behind it is insulting to the…farmer whose produce gets rotten because vehicles can’t come to his farms to cart the stuff that he produces,” he added.

NPP Finally Reinstates Kwabena Agyepong As Member

Published

on


The National Executive Council of the New Patriotic Party has reinstated former General Secretary, Mr. Kwabena Agyepong who had been suspended as a member of the party for about six years.

This decision was made by the NPP after Mr Agyepong wrote to the Executive Council, pleading with them to reconsider their decision to suspend him.

Mr Kwabena Agyepong, together with then party chairman, Paul Afoko, and National Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe were suspended in the run-up to the 2016 elections on claims of working against party interest.

Of all the three who were suspended, Mr Kwabena Agyepong is clearly the one who has demonstrated utmost commitment to the cause of the Party as he was seen campaigning for the Party in the 2020 elections.

There have been rumours that President Akufo-Addo intends to appoint Mr Agyepong into his government.
