Gen. Mosquito
Campaign Manager for Nana Akufo-Addo’s 2012 Presidential bid, Mr Boakye Agyarko says General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, is either suffering from selective amnesia or has a short memory.

To him, it is the apogee of arrogance for the NDC Chief Scribe to arrogate unto himself the role of representative of the majority, and has urged him to rather burden himself with resolving the petty squabbles and internal wranglings within his party instead of dabbling in NPP matters.

General Mosquito, as the NDC General Secretary is widely known, recently said in an interview that had the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) sought his views before embarking on his (Nana Addo’s) “Listening Campaign” tour, he (Mosquito) would have informed him that he is a very good opposition leader and that the democracy and the interest of the country would be better served if he remained a vibrant opposition leader to be pushing for minority views in the system, not to be the president of Ghana.

But in a sharp retort in an interview with Shamima Muslim on Citi EyeWitness News, Mr. Agyarko said: “either he (Gen Mosquito) is suffering from a short memory or has amnesia… He has forgotten what his party has done, the issues that have occurred and is still occurring in his party and is now talking about issues in the New Patriotic Party. I think it is the height of arrogance for him to suggest that he is a representative of the majority. If NDC has anything to say they should say it to themselves because their party is in disarray…,” he said.

According to Mr. Agyarko, the NDC has a hydra-headed problem to grapple with because at the end of the Sunyani Congress, they (NDC) disgraced their founder and his wife. He urged the NDC General Secretary to find solutions to problems confronting the party rather than putting out such ‘pretentious statements’.

“If Asiedu Nketia and the NDC have anything to say they should say it to themselves, their own party is not listening to them, they are in disarray so if he wants to do anything he has to learn to listen to his party first and foremost…the NDC has a huge and bigger problem on its head. You have just gone (to Congress) and disgraced your founder who is the foundation of your ideological underpinning. They have a bigger problem; they should go and solve that. It is the height of arrogance… We don’t make such pretentious or arrogant statements”.
