Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, has issued a warning to the New Patriotic Party, which is currently in power, stating that the newly elected executives of the party are willing to sacrifice their lives for electoral victory in the general elections scheduled for 2024.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah defeated the incumbent National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, in Saturday’s election with a resounding win that resulted in a landslide triumph.
A victory speech was given by the former General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Sunday morning after he had taken the oath of office. In it, he thanked the delegates for their trust and added that the newly elected executives would take the fight to the NPP in the next election in order to take power away from them.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah was quoted as saying, “We are willing to sacrifice everything, and I mean everything, even our lives in order to win victory.” He went on to say that “when impunity becomes law, resistance becomes a duty.” I have no doubt that the party wants us to bring the war to the elephant after looking at the assortment of executives who were elected today. We cannot let the country down, and we cannot let the party down.
In addition, he urged members of the party to work together and avoid harboring feelings of animosity toward one another in order to ensure success in the general elections of 2024.
“We are not taking the confidence for granted; Ghana is in crisis, and the NDC is also at a crossroads,” he said. “We are not taking the confidence for granted.”
What we need is unity, and we promise, on behalf of me and the new executives, that in the coming days, our first duty will be to work toward uniting the party and bringing everybody on board, even as we march forward to defeat the elephant and set the nation on the path toward growth.
