If Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia believes in morals,  he should accept full responsibility for the defeat of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the 2016 polls and resign from his position because the party was defeated at his own backyard, National Treasurer of the party, Alhaji Abdullah Ahmed Abdulla has jabbed.

He told MyNewsGh.com in an exclusive interview that even Seikwa in the Tain District of Brong Ahafo where Mr Asiedu Nketia hails from, the party lost wondering what moral justification he has to accuse other national executives of masterminding the party’s defeat at the polls.

“Even in your hometown, the NDC lost which means your hometown people don’t like you. He should have resigned as a national officer after this disgraceful incident and not even try to blame others for his woes. His hometown Seikwa we have never won any election there. He should be worried that as General Secretary the NDC has never won an election in hometown”, he chided.

According to him, the other national officers he is accusing of stifling the fortunes of the party culminating in its 2016 defeat did well because they ensured that where the hail from was won by the party.

“Tain Water added up to Gari and that is why we lost.  In the 2016 election, NDC lost in Tain under the watch of Asiedu Nketia but  Kofi Adams,  Kofi Portuphy and Hajia Zeinab won in their hometowns of Buem, Ada and Bole respectively. Personally, I vote in Banda and NDC won but he comes from  Seikwa in the Tain district where we lost. He should rather bow his head in shame and accept all the blame because if as General Secretary of one of the biggest parties you lose an election in an area you were born and raised it is very shameful”, he intimated.

“Give credit where it is due. The grassroots and branches should be credited for the party’s victory in 2008 and 2012. The National headquarters is not a polling station but your hometown so makes sure to work hard and win there not party headquarters”, he jabbed.

Mr Asiedu Nketia last week said he cannot be blamed for the unfortunate turn of events at the 2016 polls when the ‘right persons’ who could have very well helped the course were voted out and the ‘bad’ ones led by Kofi Portuphy.

“In 2014, you [delegates] decided to vote out all the people who worked with me to win two successive elections and brought in new people to work with me. We went into the 2016 elections and lost.”

“If you put gari into three bowls and add sugar to one, add honey to another and add Quinine to the other, will they taste the same,” he quizzed. “…so in this case, is it my fault as the general secretary or the people you gave me to work with?. He quizzed.
