Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has challenged Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hannah Tetteh to come out publicly and clear her name, if she indeed has not had discussions with the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) in relation to the controversial Presidential debate.

According to him, it is important that Hon. Tetteh is heard on this issue that has created storm between the think -thank and the various political parties.

Mr Anyidoho was commenting on the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) claim that it consulted the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hannah Tetteh  as a rep for the ruling NDC, ahead of the launch of the 2016 Presidential debate, a development that has irked some National Executives of the party.

National Organizer of the NDC, Kofi Adams in an earlier interview condemned the conduct of the IEA, noting that it was about time the institute takes political parties seriously and consult them at all times whenever it initiates any program for them.

But the Executive Director of the IEA Mrs Jean Mensah in response said Mr Adams was not fully abreast with discussions that had taken place with some persons in government over the upcoming debate which the NDC has stated that President Mahama will not be part of.

Speaking on Kasapa FM Koku Anyidoho stated that Hon. Hannah Tetteh’s deafening silence on the matter five days after the claim was made against her raises a lot of concerns.

“I don’t do PR for any minister, if you have not spoken to anybody come out and defend yourself. I speak for the party, let ministers speak for themselves. Let ministers carry their own cross, let appointees carry their own crosses; I will not speak on behalf of any appointee.

“We’ll not compromise on party discipline; NDC is a disciplined party where we respect authority and structures and that is the way we operate. My leader and President cannot say that the party has taken a decision and a minister will go behind the President and claim to be taking a decision on behalf of the party, that is gross indiscipline and disrespect and that will not be countenanced.

“That is why we are building a party school; building structures for people to be taken through orientation so that people accept that the party is supreme…no individual is bigger than the party. If you are a minister, you don’t claim to speak on behalf of the party and disrespect the party’s chairman and the whole hierarchy.”
