I won’t seek re-election as general secretary of NDC, says Asiedu Nketiah

Asiedu Nketsiah said he believes other people should be given the opportunity to serve in that position in the NDC

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has said he will not seek re-election as the general secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Asiedu Nketia has been general secretary of the NDC since 2005.

Speaking on Accra based Radio Gold in Accra on Wednesday (21 September 2022) declared that it is time for him to take a back seat as general secretary.

Asiedu Nketsia said he believes other people should be given the opportunity to serve in that position.

When asked about his next move, he said when the time comes, he will announce it.

He has been linked to nursing an interest to go for the national chairman position of the NDC.

He said there is no rightful owner for a particular position in the NDC, as some people have been saying that the general secretary position is solely for Johnson Asiedu Nketiah.

National chairman

Asked if it was true that he was going for the national chairman position, he said it was not time for a comment or a declaration of that interest.

When the opportunity comes, and the time is ripe, the public will know about it, he said.

Answering a question on discussions within the NDC that it would be problematic for him or anybody to compete the current national chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo who is likely to seek re-election, Asiedu Nketiah said he disagrees with that notion.

He said the history of the NDC does not support that position.

It is rather the opposite way, which is likely to be problematic if the party decides to block people with interests from competing.

He said there were precedents, which resulted in difficulties for the party on two occasions as witnessed in 2000 and 2005.

The NDC will be electing new national executives on 17 December 2022 to lead the party in the next four years.
