Typical Secretary of the Nationwide Democratic Congress, Mr Johnson Asiedu, has overtly branded the President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo “a liar” for the latter’s remarks all through a latest countrywide broadcast about a supposed meeting to focus on the referendum.
In accordance to him, he was amazed to listen to the President say, the NDC had fulfilled with him to discuss the referendum and that the NDC had indicated its intention to vote and marketing campaign for Sure.
Talking on Okay FM’s “Ade Akye Abia” programme, the NDC stalwart posited that “if the President has uncovered perception and reasoning in their argument against the referendum and has ultimately withdrawn it,” he really should adhere to his situation relatively than attack the NDC unnecessarily.
“There was never a countrywide consensus or discussion on the referendum as the President wishes to set it. Of program, you might have met with our flagbearer and former president, John Dramani Mahama for about thirty (30) minutes or so but that does not imply there was a consensus on the referendum,” he stated.
He also extra that the NDC experienced hardly ever agreed to aid the referendum as the NPP would like Ghanaians to think.
“If any person goes to a programme and states his personalized viewpoint on an concern, it doesn’t depict the posture of the occasion,” he pointed out.
Mr Asiedu Nketia was reacting to promises that the opposition occasion betrayed a consensus arrived at by all stakeholders adhering to its selection to canvas a “NO” vote.
‘YES’…NDC & NPP Concur
Rather lately, at a public forum arranged by the Institute of Democratic Governance (IDEG) on behalf of the NDC, Edem Agbana, Deputy Youth Organizer of the NDC, suggested that the opposition social gathering was in total help of “Of course” vote in the Referendum which seeks to allow participation of political functions in election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Main Executives (MMDCEs).
“This is one particular of the matters that both equally the NDC and the NPP look to be in agreement, so I would not want to chat far too significantly about the positive aspects of a multi-bash election at the regional assemblies. We are urging our customers and we have questioned all our associates to also go out and vote for “Sure” when the possibility offers itself,” Edem Agbana reportedly stated at the IDEG assembly.
Not NDC’s Placement
But the NDC Main Scribe dismissed the responses insisting they are not a representation of his impression and by extension, that of the NDC. He extra that Mr Agbana instead expressed his personal sights.
