Stop insulting Rawlings else we will be in opposition forever - Koku Anyidoho to NDC

A leading member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has openly expressed fears for the future of the party.

Former NDC Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho warned that the "NDC risks staying in opposition forever should activists continue to insult the former president" and founder of the party.

According to him, there is a growing form of indiscipline in the party which needs to be swiftly addressed by the party's leadership.

Speaking on Okay FM’s "Ade Akye Abia" Programme, he reiterated the need for party faithfuls to accord the necessary respect to it's leaders, rather than cast aspersions and haul abuse at them when they disagree with their actions or inactions or when provoked.

"If things continue this way, some of us will be forced to reply in equal measure if they do not desist from such a distasteful act. How do you expect to win power if you continue to insult a founder of the party?

”What shall it profit the National Democratic Congress (NDC), if we continue to insult Founder, His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings, and lose another General Election?" Koku Anyidoho rhetorically quizzed.

Mr Anyidoho, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills Institute, reiterated the need for the party to maintain some level of discipline in the party.

"It is about time some of us ensure that our leaders are shown some respect before things get out of hand in the party," he stressed.
