Indiscipline and arrogance of power caused the defeat of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of winning power in the 2016 general elections.

The Member of Parliament for Yunyoo constituency in the Northern region, Joseph Bipoba Naabu blamed the party’s defeat in the December polls because of the arrogance of some Ministers who were appointed by former President John Mahama.

According to him, former President Mahama appointed young boys as ministers of State to help him run the economy knowing very well that they had no experience in politics.

The lawmaker said Mahama’s inability to command his ministers reduced the chances of the party.

He said "The arrogance of most of the ministers was very serious and it affected us in the elections. I don’t want to mention names. I know a minister told a former MP that that MP was not qualified to be a minister. That was why he was not made a minister, and he was qualified that was why he was made a minister, which was not good."

Speaking to the media in Parliament, he said the defeat of the 2016 election as a result of the arrogant posture of the former Mahama’s appointees.

The lawmaker added that "You can see that we lost the Vice-President’s constituency and that of President Mills’ constituency. That of the Minister for Education, Prof Nana Jane Opoku we lost her constituency as well. General Mosquito we lost, Mark Woyongo we lost, Baba Jama we lost, because of arrogance.

"Ask for the Minister of Education, some of them were just brought from nowhere. We don’t know even how the President appointed them and the President did not appoint those people who actually deserve as NDC members. The President went and brought outsiders and that is why we loss and why didn’t we lose? His appointment was very bad. Look, it is not everything that we will talk."
