Controversial former Attorney General and NDC Chairman hopeful, Betty Mould Iddrisu has taken the fight back into the party’s failed Ashanti regional Chairman hopeful, Joseph Yammin’s ring.

In what sounded like a bitter bile, Yammin, who until recently was the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the party, attacked Betty Mould during a radio interview in which he questioned her ability to lead the NDC, describing her as tribalistic.

In the said reportage, Mr.Yammin was quoted as saying “Betty Mould Iddrisu is against people from the Northern extraction. She only married Alhaji Iddrisu when she was struggling to get a husband.”

But in a statement, an obviously distraught Betty described the accusations as not only vile, but also cancerous and ethnocentric.

The statement which was signed by one Samed Akalilu, said to be the Director of Communication for team Betty said “our team condemns such vulgarity and primitive politicking aimed at causing venomous opprobrium to the person of Hon. Betty Mould Iddrisu.

“We state once again, and for the avoidance of doubt that Betty Mould Iddrisu, who has been happily married for over three decades  to Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu, an illustrious son of northern Ghana, has not on a single occasion, imagined or demonstrated hatred for any person or group of persons for any reason whatsoever”, it said.

The statement continued:  “Betty Mould Iddrisu, has on countless occasions, supported a myriad of NDC members including uncountable ones from northern Ghana. Testimonies abound when one engages delegates who have had to chronicle these life-improving interventions in their lives through her efforts.”

Contrary to the allegations made by Mr. Yammin, the statement claimed, “the only candidate for the NDC chairmanship race who truly and broadly represents unity is Betty Mould Iddrisu because she has a diverse ethnic background. Her father hails from Accra, mother from Kwabre in Ashanti while his husband/children come from Wa in the Upper West Region. Her political activism and support has largely been in the Upper West, Upper East, Northern, Ashanti and Greater Accra Regions.”

“None of her counterparts has such a broad ethnic leanings in the country therefore an allegation of her hatred for any ethnic group can therefore, only be a betrayal of the mooter’s intelligence or a calculated scheme to destroy Betty Mould Iddrisu’s enviable reputation, especially among our gallant NDC delegates.”

Betty Mould has since assured her teeming supporters across the party that she would continue to conduct her campaign with civility and decorum as witnessed during her recent nationwide tour and urged other aspirants to do same.

After visiting all 275 constituencies, team Betty said “we have no doubt that the NDC delegates are set to make history on Saturday by electing the first female chairman of a major political party in Ghana.”
