The campaign team of the incumbent National Chairman aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has reacted to claims that he is in support of comments made against Johson Asiedu Nketia by Samuel Koku Anyidoho.

Mr. Anyidoho, a former Deputy General Secretary of the NDC in recent times has been making various attacks on the current General Secretary.

In some of his tweets, Koku Anyidoho said Johnson Asiedu Nketia is unfit to be the National Chairman of the party.

According to him, if Asiedu Nketia beats Samuek Ofosu Ampofo to become NDC Chairman and leads the party into the 2024 general elections, the party will lose.

Following allegations that Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is in support of such comments by Mr. Anyidoho, his campaign team has issued a release to rubbish that claim.

“The attention of Chairman Ofosu Ampofo’s Campaign Team has been drawn to speculations that our candidate supports comments made against the General Secretary of the NDC, Hon. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah by Koku Anyidoho, a former Deputy General Secretary of the NDC.

“We wish to state categorically and without any equivocation that Chairman Ofosu Ampofo has nothing to do with statements made or being made by Koku Anyidoho,” part of a statement by the campaign team of the incumbent National Chairman aspirant reads.

Chairman Ofosu- Ampofo’s Campaign team is calling on all party members to disregard such wicked rumors of his association with the alleged comments made by Koku Anyidoho.

The statement concludes, “We wish to urge all delegates to exercise their franchise based on the track record and the sacrifices made by Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo and disregard untruths being peddled by his opponents who have no message to justify their participation in the contest against him.”

Disclaimer

The attention of Chairman Ofosu Ampofo’s Campaign Team has been drawn to speculations that our candidate supports comments made against the General Secretary of the NDC, Hon. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah by Koku Anyidoho, a former Deputy General Secretary of the NDC.

We wish to state categorically and without any equivocation that Chairman Ofosu Ampofo has nothing to do with statements made or being made by Koku Anyidoho.

It is a matter of public record that Koku Anyidoho worked with Hon. Asiedu Nketiah as a deputy General-Secretary. Their estranged relationship is well known and this probably began when Koku Anyidoho contested against Hon. Asiedu Nketiah for the position of General Secretary in 2018.

It is a well known fact that Koku Anyidoho’s criticisms against the General Secretary predates the current internal electioneering campaign.

As our party members may have observed, Chairman Ofosu- Ampofo’s Campaign has focused on his message to unite the party to work hard for victory in 2024. Even at points of extreme provocation from his opponents, he has exercised maturity by remaining calm and focused without responding in like manner.

This is precisely the kind of Chairman the party needs. A Chairman whose main concern is to focus on issues that affect the development of the party while working to consolidate the gains the party has made since he took over leadership in 2018 towards victory come 2024.

Chairman Ofosu- Ampofo’s Campaign is therefore calling on all party members to disregard, utterly such wicked rumors of his association with the alleged comments made by Koku Anyidoho.

We wish to urge all delegates to exercise their franchise based on the track record and the sacrifices made by Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo and disregard untruths being peddled by his opponents who have no message to justify their participation in the contest against him.
