The Nhyiaeso Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Ernest Afayam has revealed that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are having nightmares and headaches over the new crop of NDC executives elected at the just ended 10TH National Delegates Congress.
According to him, the new executives of the party are very competent and have the experience to take on the NPP squarely.
“I am telling you, the NPP can no longer sleep, they are having sleepless nights, I mean nightmares even… our team is strong. Who in the NPP can you compare to the executives that we have, Asiedu Nketiah has been general secretary for 17 years, Ntim is nowhere near him. Our chairman is experienced and knows the political terrain”, he stated.
“The NPP is now revising its notes. We know that. Reason they are speaking the way they are doing towards our elected members who have not even been in office for a week. They are restless.”
According to him, the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Frimpong Kodua cannot in any way compare himself to the newly elected General Secretary of the NDC, Fiifi, Fiavi Kwetey.
“Look at our General Secretary; he was Minister for Transport of Ghana, Minister of Food and Agriculture of Ghana. He has held party positions before, so he is a tough person and will not give the NPP a chance to do things anyhow. How can Justine Kodua compare himself to him”? he quizzed.
According to him, the new National Organizer of the party, Joseph Yammin, who is a former Deputy Minister of Sports and former Deputy Minister of the Ashanti Region needs no introduction.
“One time secretary of the region, he lost the chairmanship race to Nana Akwasi, but is now the NDC national organizer, we all know what he stands for. He is a grassroots persona and a man of the people,” He added.
