Hon. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the newly-elected chairman of the National Democratic Commission (NDC), has been urged by the chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC), Mr. Yaw Boadu Ayeboafo, to resign from his position as a member of the Parliamentary Service board.
A political party head, according to him, cannot maintain the position’s strictest level of neutrality.
According to him, it unconstitutional for a leader of a political party to advise the Speaker of Parliament.
He made reference to how the late Peter Ala Adjetey was removed from the Commission because he was the National Chairman of the NPP.
Asiedu Nketia has been a member of the board since 2021 and was elected NDC National Chairman at the just ended 10th National Delegates Congress, defeating incumbent Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
“So, if somebody holding political office cannot be a member of the Commission, how can somebody leading a political party advise the Speaker which is supposed to demonstrate objectively and neutrality of the highest sense?” he quizzed.
