The National Nasara Coordinator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kamal-Deen Abdulai has said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is now known as the National Double-salary Collectors.

He accused the party of engaging in fraudulent activities adding that the NDC almost collapsed the economy but the timely intervention of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his appointees are putting the economy back on track.

Speaking on Accra-based Oman FM, he said "The NDC is now known as the National Double-salary Collectors because they were in government and taking a double salary. Those who were against them leaving power will now see that if we had allowed them to rule for another term, this country would have my now been on its knees. We thank God they were chased away and the timely intervention of the NPP government is putting things back to shape."
