The national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has said his contest with the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah for the chairmanship position of the party at today’s congress will not destroy the party.
There are fears the NDC will disintegrate after today’s congress where the two top party executives are going head-to-head against each other.
Ahead of congress, Mr Nketiah and Mr Ampofo have been throwing jabs at each other.
But delivering his opening address at congress on Saturday, 17 December 2022, Mr Ampofo said despite the heated campaigns, the NDC will be united after congress.
He said “I want our detractors to know that our party still remains strong and we will come out of today’s elections even stronger.
“The chairmanship contest between the party chairman and the general secretary will not destroy the NDC, we are all too strong and too intelligent for that.”
“Let those false political prophets from the opposing side who are predicting armageddon after today’s election be clear in their minds that today will rather mark a renaissance of a great akatamansonians,” he added.
He reminded the NDC that “today will mark the beginning of our march towards rescuing Ghana from the wickedness, ineptitude and catastrophic NPP government”.
Former Member of Parliament Nii Armah Ashiety, and Mr Samuel Yaw Adusei are also contesting the chairmanship position but the frontrunners are Mr Asiedu Nketia and Mr Ofosu-Ampofo.
