    Let’s win power, then we ‘can argue about sharing of the meat’ – Asiedu Nketiah to NDC members

    Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has tasked party faithful to be focused on winning power in the 2024 elections.

    According to him, talk about who gets what position long before the elections will only distract from the ultimate goal and thwart the mission of removing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from office.

    He stressed during an address at the Kofi Ohene Konadu Auditorium at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), that there remained a lot of work to be done to dislodge the NPP.

    “Because we’re convinced that we are there, a lot of people have begun taking positions and fighting over who will be what in the next government. Some people are not only fighting about the positions they will occupy.

    “They are telling all others that they will be the kingmakers and they will be making appointments. If we’re not careful, this will dampen the enthusiasm and the spirit of our followers. I want to assure everybody that we’re not there yet.

    “Don’t be fighting about positions, and don’t be talking about who will make appointments. Let’s all go for the hunting first and when we kill the game we can now argue about sharing of the meat,” he stressed.

    The event (April 24, 2024) was to formally outdoor the NDC’s running mate for the 2024 presidential elections, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.

    It was attended by the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, his wife Lordina and most National and Regional executives. Scores of NDC lawmakers and hundreds from across the rank and file were also present.

    Professor Opoku-Agyemang, a former minister for education and former Vice Chancellor for the University of Cape Coast was nominated by former President John Dramani Mahama as his running mate for the 2020 election. Their bid failed.

    Four years down the line, Mr Mahama has once again settled on the educationist maintaining the possibility of her becoming Ghana’s first female vice president.
