Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has fired warning to party bigshots who are trying to impose a presidential candidate on the members ahead of the 2024 polls.
Speaking on Okay FM he said not even former president Atta Mills countenanced such actions and it’ll ot be allowed to happen for the first time.
According to him, anyone considering that is not a true and loyal member of the umbrella family.
“If you ask me as a true and loyal NDC member, at all times, let there be a contest. President Mills even as a sitting President was contested. When he was being contested, did he ever complained? I was his spokesperson; did I ever go after anybody for contesting President Atta Mills? He threatened to dismiss me if I had gone after Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings.”
“ . . for me, any attempt by anybody today to advocate the imposition of a flagbearer, are from persons who are not dyed-in-the-wool NDC members; they should go back to where they came from. Anybody who says that the NDC should impose a candidate on the party is not a true member of the NDC . . . because true NDC members in 2000 decided to move away from this imposition; they don’t want impositions of candidates any longer,” he cautioned.
