NDC Is A “Champagne-Popping Socialist” Party – Mike Oquaye Jr

Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Lawyer Mike OquayeDeputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Lawyer Mike Oquaye Jnr. has described the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a “champagne socialist” party.

According to Lawyer Mike Oquaye Jnr., the ruling party’s social reforms have all hit the rocks.

He explained that the NDC calls itself as a socialist party and therefore shares socialist ideologies but have not been able to roll out any social interventions since its inception.

He told sit-in host Nana Yaw Kesse on Peace FM‘s Kokrokoothat the Mahama-led NDC frequently gives promises to Ghanaians, particularly the impoverished, while the leaders rather sit down and drink champagne.

Mike Oquaye Jnr was commenting on the 24th year anniversary of the NDC.

The New Statesman on Monday published that President John Dramani Mahama gleefully led the high echelons of the party in popping champagne to celebrate the party’s 24th anniversary last Friday.

According to the pro-opposition newspaper, at the same time the president and his government/party functionaries were having fun, many people in the capital city were weeping and counting their losses following last Thursday’s devastating flood.

Some people have raised questions about the decision by the governing party to go ahead with its 24th anniversary, especially coming at a time the government’s promise to ensure an end to the incidents of flood in the capital, following the June 3 disaster, had failed….Some believe a party in government that wants to be seen as sensitive to the plight of the suffering, especially victims of the flood, should have called of the 24th anniversary celebration in solidarity with the people,” the Accra-based daily.

Touching on the issue on Kokrokoo, the NPP Deputy Communications Director noted that the current administration has also become an albatross around the neck of Ghanaians with its proclivity to tax everything.

The NPP Deputy Communications Director believed the country’s Savior is none other than Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, who he noted, will revamp the economy when voted as President of the Republic of Ghana.
