General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has vowed to demolish and put to waste any constructed edifice linked to his name.

The NDC scribe told Accra based Okay FM that he feels embarrassed when people deliberately accuse him of milking the state to buy personal properties.

Mr. Asiedu Nketia recently sued the Daily Guide newspaper for publishing libelous articles about him. He was awarded a sum of Ghc250, 000 in damages by the court after winning the defamation suit.

Although he is yet to claim the money, he has vowed not to spare others who intentionally malign him.

“Some tried to lie that I own a Gas station at Sunyani. All I did was to go out there and announce that every driver in Sunyani should go to that gas station for free petrol.

When the real owner realized that people had moved their cars to his station to get free petrol, he openly fought away the drivers...this is how I intend to deal with all others who try to accuse me wrongly,” he vowed.

According to the NDC Chief Scribe, who is also known as General Mosquito, ever since the Daily Guide published the story about him, people in the Ashanti Region have created a new bus stop they call “General Mosquito Bus Stop”.

“The sad aspect of the story is that I live in Accra and do not have a property there. Someone also built stores at Madina and all of a sudden people started claiming its mine...Then at Kasoa, news started circulating that I own tipper trucks....I was at home one day when someone called me pleading that I lend him ten of my trucks. I became surprised and told him I don’t even own one," he recounted.
