Former President John Dramani Mahama

Blame Mahama and wife for NDC’s loss – Ketu South foot soldiers
As the opposition National Democratic Congress
(NDC), struggles to recover from its defeat in the
2016 elections, grassroots members of the party in
the Ketu South Constituency in the Volta Region,
have waded into the blame game by accusing Former
President John Dramani Mahama and his wife, as
being the major cause of their defeat.

At a press conference in Aflao today [Wednesday],
the group described the party’s defeat as
humiliating and blamed it on the party’s neglect
of the foot soldiers.

The pro-opposition group; Action Movement of NDC,
claim that some actions and utterances by the then
Candidate and former President John Dramani Mahama
and the wife, Lordina Mahama, created so much
disaffection for the party at the grassroots.

“The Action Movement is saying exactly what sent
us to a humiliating opposition. Our executives did
not spread the campaign funds in the 2016
election, instead kept them for themselves. Bad
utterances from JM to nurses and party elders. The
women front was broken by Lordina; JM’s wife” the
group stated.

The group justified their resolve to go public
with the issues, claiming it was as a result of
unyielding responses from their leaders

The Ketu South Constituency is the Electoral
Commission’s largest constituency, and has
featured as the stronghold of the opposition NDC.

Many political observers believe that, the recent
loss of the party in the general elections was
also largely due to apathy in the party’s

Addressing the media, the leader of the group,
Godwin Henyo, said the way out is for the party
leadership to expedite measures towards
re-organization of an early congress to elect a
new flagbearer.

Direct your concerns to us – Kwesi Botchwey to NDC

Although a fact-finding committee led by Kwesi
Botchwey is seeking to establish the cause of the
party’s defeat and make recommendations going
forward, several individuals and groups in the
party have been putting out their own diagnosis.

There have been times where the committee’s work
has turned violent. The Committee has thus
cautioned members to desist from such public
discussions and allow it to finish its work.
