The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, in an interview with Mamavi Owusu Aboagye on JOY News' AM Show programme has revealed that his children have been unfairly treated by the current government because he is the General Secretary of the NDC.

According to Mr. Nketiah, his son was relieved of his duties three years ago by his emloyers when the Management of the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority (GPHA) put pressure on the company his son was working for to sack him in order for the company not to have its license withdrawn.

He added that the instructions given  to the company his son was working for was that since he was the son of Mr. Asiedu Nketiah, he  was too politically connected and that working at the port he could import weapons to overthrow the Government.

He further divulged that his daughter who was working with a Government institution involved in auditing was instructed to implicate an innocent person wrongfully for political reasons, but she declined and this led to her being transferred from the head office to a district branch in the Greater Accra Region where she was told by the manager that there was no desk for her.

Also, he mentioned that his business as a block maker has been deeply affected because he is the NDC's General Secretary. According to him, a contractor who patronized his blocks has not been paid for the past three years because of the contractor's association with him.

He noted that his capital is locked up because the contractor bought the blocks on credit and has not been paid by the Government.

This he said is because the Government thinks if the contractor is paid, he will in turn be paid for his business to flourish.

Asked whether he regrets doing politics since his children are being witch-hunted, he expressed his disagreement to that and added that his family enjoys it.
