- Asked whether the party was broke, he stated that the difficulties with collection of dues in the past have necessitated the reform, since the only source of funds for the party is via dues.
The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has hinted that the party is on a rescue mission to extricate the nation from sinking.
Speaking with Akua Boakyewa Yiadom on Adom FM's Burning Issues programme, he made it known that due to the mission, the party has reformed ways of mobilizing funds in the past by resorting to the use of technology to source for funds to embark on the rescue mission.
Asked whether the party was broke, he stated that the difficulties with collection of dues in the past have necessitated the reform, since the only source of funds for the party is via dues.
Queried about whether the party was campaigning, he responded that campaigning has been put on hold as has been directed by the President to all and sundry to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
He however stated that the Electoral Commission is embarking on an agenda that will end in chaos.
This he said is the reason the NDC is complaining about the attitude of the Electoral Commission and not that the NDC is calling on its members to vote for the party.
Mr. Nketiah stated that though the Electoral Commission does not have enough time to discuss with various political parties, the modalities of the elections in order to conduct transparent elections, the Electoral Commission has rather teamed up with the National Identification Authority to throw arrangements for the elections out of gear whilst the whole country is helping in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
He added that the NDC will not sit for the elections to be to thrown into disarray by the Electoral Commission; hence they want to make Ghanaians aware of the surreptitious way the Electoral Commission want to carry out the elections and calling on Ghanaians to fight against it.
