If Haruna Iddrisu’s latest outburst about the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is anything to go by, then it could be concluded that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would retain power in 2016.

Judging from our current political disposition, it is easily perceived that the largest opposition party which is the NPP is the only political party that can upset the NDC in 2016.

But they are a ‘weak opposition party’ and this is a comment attributed to the Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu.

He described the NPP as a weak opposition party that cannot contest the Mahama administration in any electoral battle.

After the publication on Peacefmonline.com, Nana Akomea, leapt to the NPP’s defense arguing that to some level he could pardon the minister for passing such comments.

Speaking on Oman FM, the NPP’s Director of Communication revealed that inasmuch as he would not waste much of his energy commenting on what Haruna Iddrisu has said about the NPP, the fact remains that the latter has never been serious with his current job as a minister.

He described Haruna as an individual who has never been considered by Ghana as a serious person when it comes to fulfilling promises. As the current Employment and Labour Relations, Nana Akomea claims Haruna Iddrisu’s regime merits to be described as the worse ever.

His reasons for saying so were simple. According to him, if Haruna Iddrisu had played his role well 91 junior doctors would not have fought government over 9 months unpaid salaries.

Aside this, Nana Akomea added that Haruna Iddrisu drummed into the ears of Ghanaians in an audio that went viral in the wake of the current three year old power crisis that the then ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) “has no excuse to plunge Ghanaians into darkness..” and that a “future NDC government..." shall have no excuse to subject Ghanaians to an energy crisis because the opportunity exists, whether hydro or thermal” to produce enough electricity to meet the need of the nation.

According to the Tamale South MP, in his infamous ‘adumdum adumdum’ comments-made in Parliament in 2007, the NPP has failed to “keep their honour” after campaigning under the slogan of “adumdum adumdum B3 gyae”, which means the worsening power crisis will come to an end, when they were seeking power in the run up to the 2000 elections.

Ghana experienced an 8-month power crisis between 2006 and 2007, and Mr Iddrisu’s promises on behalf of the now governing NDC in 2007 have received almost daily airplay over the past three years of erratic power supply.

Consequently, the NPP’s Director of Communication tagged him as not "serious" and advised him to do a major self-introspection before passing any comments about the opposition party and its leader, Nana Akufo-Addo.
