NDC is finished – Chairman Nana Boakye

Tema, Aug 12, GNA – A
leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Tema West, Mr
Dennis Amfo-Sefa, says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is on the brink
of collapse

“The collapse of every
civilization does not happen from outside, but happens from within. If you see
what is going on in the NDC now, it is nothing but evidence of the fact that
the party is collapsing.  The NDC is

Mr. Dennis Amfo Sefa,
popularly called Chairman Nana Boakye, the NPP activist had been commenting on
the current impasse within the NDC in which leading members of the party are
caught in a circuit of blame and condemnation.

The saga revolves
around a chain reaction that has been sparked by a caustic article that a former
Deputy Chief of Staff in the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Dr. Valerie
Sawyerr, wrote in reaction to incessant criticism of the party’s Founder and a
former Attorney General.

In that article, Dr.
Valerie Sawyerr takes former President Jerry Rawlings and Martin Amidu to the
cleaners, accusing them of hypocrisy and self-righteousness.

In reaction, Martin
Amidu published a rejoinder in which he calls Dr. Sawyerr several names.

“The crossfire of
criticisms in that party is nothing but a symptom of the deep rift that exists
in the party. Valerie is a Mahama girl, her daring criticism of the Founder of
the party was obviously sanctioned by some big godfathers who sympathise with Former
President Mahama.

“Her criticisms of
Martin Amidu, was in reaction to Mr. Amidu’s persistent criticism of John
Mahama and his government. So in reprisal, John Mahama who could not face
Rawlings and Amidu would be happy to see Valerie defend his honour,” Chairman
Nana Boakye said.

He said the caustic
exchanges in the biggest opposition party has seen some powerful communicators
take the side of President Rawlings.

According to him, the
NDC would have survived the post-election Tsunami, but Valerie Sawyerr’s caustic
attack has scuttled earlier attempts by the party to reconcile their founder to
the party.

He said a couple of
months back, the NDC had organized a trip to the home of former President
Rawlings in an effort to attract their estranged founder back to the party.

“However, several
weeks later, at a 25th anniversary of the party in Ashiaman, the former
President had given the conditionality that for the NDC to chart a way forward,
the party’s current crop of leaders must be changed.

And as everybody was
looking forward to conciliatory overtures from both President Rawlings and the
Mahama factions, Dr. Valerie Sawyerr detonated her bombshell on Rawlings and
Amidu. I don’t see how the so called reconciliation process that was started
some few weeks ago can continue. It is over. The NDC is finished,” he said.
