His comments come at the back of the recently-held Congress of the party which saw two Voltarians, Koko Anyidoho and Dan Abodapki losing out in their bids to become General Secretary and National Chairman respectively.


Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, an Akan, beat Dan Abodakpi and three other aspirants at the Congress over the weekend.

Sammy Gyamfi was also elected Communications Director beating Fred Agbenyo with Kwaku Boahen and Ako Gunn emerging his deputies.

Reacting to the ethnic concerns raised by some executives of the party, Asiedu Nketia said "The results rather tell you that the NDC is more tribal-neutral.

"We have more to show that our party has risen above ethnic consideration."


He added: "We are the party that has elected presidents from the three major ethnic classes – the Akan, Volta and North. So, if the election results of our party now seem to indicate that the choices were made from areas that do not seem to be predominantly NDC, it tells you that we are not an ethnic party."
