General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says he fought injustice under the military regime with his good friend Akufo-Addo and will not watch him destroy it now he is President.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he said the President is his good friend and he sometimes advises him whenever they meet at funerals.
“I remember him telling me at a funeral to stop mentioning his name too much, and I also told him that we sometimes get disappointed at some of the things he does,” he humorously said.
“President Akufo-Addo and I have been very good friends spanning from our days in parliament as parliamentarians. We members on the other side were his close friends, but that does not influence our work as friends.”
“But in all of this, we have been fighting to deepen the democracy we have been enjoying, so Akufo-Addo should not think that he can rule against the freedom of speech and injustice we all fought for,” he added.
