After 12 years at the helm of Affairs as the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Asiedu Nketia, aka General Mosquito, is set to bow out of his position.
General Mosquito will not stand for reelection when the NDC goes to congress to elect new national executives, Deputy General Secretary of the party, Koku Anyidoho, has revealed.
It is unclear whether what his next move will be, however, it is rumoured that he is lacing his boots to contest for the chairmanship position of the NDC.
Anyidoho, speaking on Accra-based Neat FM on Monday, 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."
Following the party's historic defeat in the 2016 elections, the rank and file of the NDC have been calling for early congress to elect new executives to manage the party.
A former NDC MP for Adentan, Kojo Adu-Asare, is also said to have expressed interest in becoming General Secretary of the NDC.
