Current NDC leadership are average- Muntaka

The National Democratic Congress’s current leadership, according to the member of parliament from the Asawase constituency, is about average going into the 2024 elections.

 The lawmaker acknowledged that even though the present leadership has only been in office for a little over a year, there is still much work to be done to keep the party on track for the 2024 election.

“They are barely one year in office. You may not like people, you may have your biases, but you need to be fair to people at all times.

All in all, if you say on a scale of 1-10, I will say 5. That’s average because if you look at the number of MPs who lost their seats, I thought that going into this democratization, we need to as a party have a system that keeps experience” “They have been able to organize the Presidential Primaries, they have done the parliamentary primaries, Assin North and Kumawu, and you see gaps”

When questioned about the gaps he saw in the way the NDC primaries were run, the lawmaker claimed they permitted people to tell lies without being called out.

“If you come to Asawase and you unseat me with lies, 4 years it would catch up with you. Because they are going to measure you with the same lies and you would fail and next thing you see the party lose the seat” You see so many national officers, having interests and poking their nose in one thing or the other, if you speak to the 136 MPS, I’m sure they will tell you all manner of stories.
They didn’t behave well in managing that. Unfortunately, you have almost all of them doing that so it becomes difficult to say can you all stay off as we have seen in the past”

The National Democratic Congress reshuffled its leadership in Parliament in January, 2023. A new crop of leaders were selected to lead the party into the 2024 elections. Former Minority leader and MP for Tamale South Haruna Iddrisu was replaced by the member of Parliament for Ejumako Enyan Esiam constituency, Casiel Ato Forson.

MP for Ellembelle, Armah Kofi Buah replaced the MP for Keto North James Klutse Avedzi as the Deputy Minority Leader. Kwame Agbodza also replaced Asawase MP Mubarak Muntaka as the Minority Whip.

The change brought tension between the former leaders of the party in Parliament and the party executives.
