The second deputy Speaker of Parliament, said the divisions with NPP government will also hinder Ghana’s progress and economic development.

“With what is happening…you [NPP] cannot develop Ghana and mark it, very soon they will start fighting among themselves.”

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.

“It is for us to do an introspection and try and put a system in place to prevent a third world war…we need to go back for the earlier values. You cannot have democracy without creating the culture of integrity and that is the true genesis of our party but we are jettisoning all,” he said.
