Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has debunked media reports that he sent a delegation to ask his closest contender for the chief scribe position, Koku Anyidoho to step down.
Rainbow radio reported that Mr. Asiedu Nketia has sent some persons to ask Koku Anyidoho to step down.
The report said he has confessed to some individuals that he[Asiedu Nkeita] told Koku Anyidoho to contest because he would no longer contest the race.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia angrily denied sending a delegation to Koku Anyidoho. According to him, he has done no such thing and blamed some faceless individuals for orchestrating such reports.
He, however, revealed that Koku Anyidoho recently led a group of NDC elders to come to his official residence to apologize for claiming that he [Koku] received blessings from him [Nketia] to contest because he was no longer interested.
He made reference to Dr. Carl Mark, Mr. Kofi Attoh and five others saying, “these individuals came to me and apologized” “How on earth would I beg Koku not to contest? I was very angry when I saw the story because I never did such a thing. I have no problem if Koku contests me. It is his right but reporting that I begged him to step down is false,” he said.
“Koku rather came to me with some NDC members to apologize for claiming that I have given him the green light to contest. I accepted the apology and asked that we move on to develop the party,” he said.
