The Nadowli Kaleo MP was speaking at the NDC’s silver jubilee lecture on Thursday (June 9, 2017).
He said the NDC’s over reliance on the state media caused the party’s defeat in the 2016 elections. He argued that this allowed the then opposition NPP form an alliance with the private media.
He said the NDC can only return to power after they conduct an objective investigation and address the issues that contributed to the party’s loss.
