Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has depicted President Akufo-Addo’s choice to pull back the December 17 Referendum as being a result of what he called “coming up short on choices”.
Mr Nketia said he felt the President had no other decision than to abandon what he called transcription, noticing that the President had come up short on choices, living him with no decision than to chicken out in light of the fact that Ghanaians were upset.
He accepts the President’s choice to withdraw on the Bill was a result of seeing annihilation to a ‘YES’ vote in front of the submission.
The President in a broadcast address on Sunday, December 1, 2019 declared the retraction of the choice over what he says is absence of accord among key partners and the Ghanaian people.
“So individual Ghanaians, it is of profound lament that I have offered guidelines to the pastor for neighborhood government and Rural advancement to lead the procedure with honorable life and dynamism in the interest of the administration to prematurely end the procedure and see to the withdrawal of the bills for the revision of the constitution both in regard of article 243 (1) and Article 55 (2),” the President declared.
Be that as it may, talking in a meeting on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem on Monday, Mr Nketia scrutinized the President’s case of ‘absence of agreement’.
“He didn’t look for the agreement of Ghanaians on this issue so for what reason should he haul out of it guaranteeing there is no accord,” he tested.
He included that rather than the President guaranteeing absence of accord, he ought to rather apologize to Ghanaians for his unexpected U-Turn.
He likewise exposed gossipy tidbits that President Akufo-Addo met with previous President John Mahama to have dialogs on the submission.
