NDC The Charade Must End

Feature Article NDC The Charade Must End
THU, 02 FEB 2023 LISTEN

If the leadership of NDC is thinking that the abysmal performance of President Nana Addo and the NPP government would ensure victory for the NDC come 2024 then they are in a dream world.

There are some staunch members of the NDC who are disillusioned with the leadership gimmick and the deceptive style in managing the Party, and they are sitting on the fence looking at the drama that is unfolding.

Nana Addo on several occasions repeatedly said he will handover power to another NPP president. This statement must be of great concern to the leadership of the NDC rather they've coined an empty slogan Do or Die, and who is going to die for what.

Some members of the NDC believe Nana Addo and his government killed and robbed the NDC of victory in the 2020 general elections and what is guarantee they would not do same come 2024 general elections.

The only option available for the NDC to wrestle power from the NPP is to have a strong united front, therefore the disruption of Leader Haruna Iddrisu's leadership was unnecessary, and the cracks that have been developed is so deep and it's expected two years is enough time to have bridges mended might be an illusion.

Even though Leader Haruna Iddrisu's leadership had some challenges, the reasons for the change was untenable and NDC kept making the same mistakes under the guise of regional or religious balance.

Alhaji Huudu Yahaya an excellent and qualified personality aspiring as the national chairman of the National Democratic Congress was forced to step aside on the congress day at Kumasi in December 2014 for the mere fact, that John Mahama was the president and a northerner therefore, it was an abomination having another northerner as a party chairman.

Politicians takes those decisions to subtle divide the citizenry along tribal or religious lines and justified it under the guise of ensuring regional balance. that singular decision was the precursor for the disastrous defeat of the NDC in the 2016 general elections.

The enactment of another 2014 charade is being display and the actors unknowingly are creating disharmony within the rank and file of the party.

Since when did the leadership realized there was no regional balance at the legislative level? Speaker Gbagbin was then the second deputy speaker, Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka were the leaders since 2017 and all of them are northerners nobody quibbles or challenge the composition of that leadership.

Everyone is claiming credit for the massive success of the 2020 general elections, Haruna Iddrisu's and his lieutenant also contributed to that success story which the NDC pride itself of.

The charade behind this unpopular decision was to create an unfettered advantage to the former president John Mahama, and this action tend to cause division and disharmony in every organization. NDC doesn't need this drama now...
