His comments come on the back of a massive endorsement of former President Mahama by some 94 NDC MPs.

 

The move has not been received well by all members the party, with some insiders openly criticizing the MPs who endorsed Mahama’s candidature.

However, speaking to GHOne TV, Mr. Nketia said he finds nothing wrong with the MPs’ endorsement of Mahama.

“I heard about a group of MPs declaring their support for President Mahama.

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, according to the advice we have issued.

“What will be offensive to us will be for somebody, maybe the leadership of the caucus, to come out to say that: ‘The NDC caucus in parliament supports Joshua Alabi or Sylvester Mensah or John Mahama’
”, he stated.
