"There was absolutely nothing wrong with wearing my wife’s winter coat", these were the words from the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia after he was mocked for wearing a female winter coat during his visit to Germany with former president John Mahama.

In a clap back to his critics, he explained that he wasn’t in Germany for a fashion show but for business purposes.

Mr. Aseidu Nketia while packing for his trip mistakenly took his wife’s winter coat which was the same colour as his.

After realizing the mix-up, he decided to wear it regardless since he was just spending 3 days in Germany and found no reason for buying a new one.

The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has admitted that the winter jacket he wore in the cold weather in Germany belongs to his wife, Vida Asiedu Nketia.

Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito has been in the news for days now over a winter coat he wore during a visit to Germany with President John Dramani Mahama.

The winter coat according to some critics is feminine and should not have been worn by the only General in the NDC.

Speaking on HELLO FM, a sister station of PEACE FM In Kumasi Friday, General Mosquito said the coat indeed is feminine and that it belongs to his wife.

According to him, they (he and his wife) have the same colour and so in the process of packing for his Germany trip, he mistakenly took it; thinking it was his.

On the other hand, Asiedu Nketia says he did not go to Germany for a 'fashion show' hence there is nothing wrong in wearing his wife's winter coat.
