NDC Will Always Face Problems in Ashanti – Koku
Mr. KOKU ANYIDOHO, Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), says the party is not surprised about the troubles that characterized the NDC constituency polls in the Ashanti region.
According to him, the region still remains the stronghold of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and so he was not surprised that the elections encountered various problems there.
“We had challenges in the Ashanti region and we will always have problems in that region because it is the stronghold of our main opponents, the NPP”, Koku Anyidoho said during an interview with King Edward of Hello FM.
He, however, noted that the party is generally impressed with the outcome of the constituency elections across the country.
Anyidoho tactically avoided commenting on the ongoing brouhaha between NDC founder, Jerry John Rawlings and Anita Desoso, but attacked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for presiding over a government bereft with corruption and scandals.
The largest opposition political party in the country on Saturday organized its constituency elections across in all ten regions to elect the party’s constituency executives for a four-year term.
Sadly, out of the 47 constituencies in the Ashanti region, the party was able to organize successful elections in just 29 constituencies, leaving 18 constituencies, which were hit by court injunctions and other troubles.
