Koku Anyidoho, a former deputy general secretary of the National Democratic Conference (NDC), is disappointed in Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, often known as General Mosquito, for winning the election for national chair of the party at the NDC’s 10th delegates’ congress on Saturday.
Mr. Anyidoho vigorously opposed Mr. Nketia in the run-up to the election, arguing that if he were to serve as National Chair, the party would lose the following elections.
However, Mr. Nketia won the race to succeed Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo as national chair.
Commenting on this in series of tweets, Mr Anyidoho said “If anyone thinks I have wavered on my convictions; the victory of Asiedu-Nketiah has handed a victory baton to NPP.”
He added “I am grateful to God that nobody understands my brand of politics. The victory of Mosquito spells doom for the dead goat.”
In the meantime, Mr. Asiedu Nketia has extended an olive branch to all losers in the party’s just concluded National Delegates Congress.
He claimed that although they had lost, it was actually a sign that they were needed in different roles by the party.
He pledged that these candidates, who merely fell short of winning delegate votes, will be included in every human resource deployment decision made by his government.
