Allotey Jacobs ‘hate campaign’ a blessing in disguise – Asiedu Nketia

General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is unperturbed by what he says is the vile propaganda to get him out of the party office.

Johnson Asiedu Nketia said he has the shock absorbers to neutralise any missiles aimed at ensuring he loses the party’s upcoming primaries slated for November 2018.

The NDC scribe was reacting to the campaign being waged by the immediate past NDC Central Regional Chairman, Bernard Allotey Jacobs about his candidature.

He has called on party delegates to vote out General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia popularly known as General Mosquito during national executive elections.

Allotey Jacobs claimed General Mosquito is the leader of a mafia group at the NDC headquarters working assiduously to thwart their chances of winning the 2020 general elections.

In a quick rebuttal, Asiedu Nketia on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday, said such hate campaign is a ‘blessing in disguise’.

He stated that, telling delegates not to vote for him only boosts his chances of being retained as General Secretary.

“Allotey Jacobs just expressed his opinion and I have no problem but it will not affect my campaign” he added.

General Mosquito bemoaned how candidates are descending into the gutters just to win an internal election.

This notwithstanding, Asiedu Nketia said he is focused on conducting a clean campaign for a resounding victory in the primaries.
