NDC will remain in opposition for a long time if… - Gyampoh

According to Gyampo, the arrogant posture of some of the communicators if not checked will keep the party in opposition for long.


According to him, the arrogant posture of some communicators of the party if not checked will keep the party in opposition for long.

Some leading members of the NDC have criticised each other with supporters accusing the officials of amassing wealth and doing very little to help the party’s fortune in the elections.

Yaw Boateng Gyan, former National Organiser has also revealed that the party suffered an excruciating defeat because supporters of the party have been seething with anger and pointing accusing fingers at party hierarchy.

Indiscipline and arrogance of power caused the defeat of the NDC of winning power in the general elections.

The Member of Parliament for Yunyoo constituency, Joseph Bipoba Naabu blamed the party’s defeat in the December polls because of the arrogance of some Ministers.

Former National Chairman Dr. Kwabena Adjei also said the party lost the elections after delegates failed to give him the mandate for another term as national chairman of the party.

He said Mr Mahama surrounded himself with inexperienced handlers and that caused their defeat.

But Professor Ransford Gyampoh said allegations of corruption were levelled against some party officials and that caused the NDC.

"Before the elections of 2016, there were so many allegations of corruption that were levelled against some party officials of the…NDC and I am sure the NPP will put in place measures to investigate some of these allegations and send people to jail. The more party officials and appointees soil their image by being found culpable of corruption, the longer the party will remain in opposition," he said in an interview on Accra-based Class FM.

"Again, listening to some party communicators, it appears they do not seem remorseful of their display of arrogance in their public utterances that contributed to their defeat. The more they go this way, the longer they will remain in opposition. So, in my view, there are so many things that are now currently working against them and there are so many things that they will have to work hard to surmount.

"They cannot afford to allow some of these comments coming from some top echelons of the party to also deepen the cracks and inflame passions against the party structures," he stated.
