"I have a month and I can speak for myself and will not wait for anybody to do that on my behalf," he said.


Deputy General Secretary of the party, Koku Anyidoho, has revealed that Asiedu Nketia will not stand for re-election when the NDC goes to congress to elect new national executives.

Anyidoho, speaking on Accra-based Neat FM noted that he has the blessings of General Mosquito to run for General Secretary.

"Asiedu Nketia has given me his endorsement and some bigwigs and I see that as a beauty of the democracy because, if he has decided not to contest, why should I refuse. I will gladly step in his shoes and work for the party," he revealed.

He added: "Asiedu Nketia has given me the green light and I promise to continue the great work he is doing for the party because, I have what it takes to help wrestle power from the NPP."

But Asiedu Nketia speaking to the media, he said he is still in the race for the General Secretary slot of the NDC and have not directed anybody to tell the world he's not seeking re-election.

He said "I’m still in the race for the General Secretary slot of the NDC and I have not directed anybody to tell the world I’m not seeking re-election as the Chief Executive Officer of the party. I have not given my blessings to anyone vying for the position besides it is too early for anyone to start thinking about internal contest when there is work ahead."

"the party is now going for the branch elections before constituency elections then followed by regional elections before the National elections so what is the haste to succeed me?," he queried.
