NDC not shaken by ‘Baamu Yadda’ demo – Koku Anyidoho
Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has asserted that, his party is not shaken by the Bawumia-led Baamu Yada demonstration organized by pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) in Kumasi.
The protest march is to compel the Electoral Commission to provide a new voters’ register ahead of the November polls.
Mr. Anyidoho, who was speaking Atinka FM’s AM Drive hosted by Kwame Adinkra on Wednesday, said the NDC is not perturbed by the demonstration embarked on by the LMVCA and the Vice Presidential Candidate for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He further said his outfit is rather focused on a national outreach programme aimed at touching base with the local people in all the ten regions of the country.
He said the demonstration will not in any way destroy or affect the activities the NDC is undertaking in the constituencies and communities.
Touching on NPP’s allegation that the NDC is sponsoring Mr. Kwesi Addae Odike’s United Progressive Party (UPP) to do it’s bidding, the deputy scribe of the ruling party said the NDC has no immediate plans of forming a coalition with some political parties.
He, however, admitted that Mr. Odike may be dealing with some individuals in the party who are not known to the larger party.
The demonstration christened “Baamu Yadda”, loosely translated, “we will not budge,” attracted thousands of Ghanaians who believe the EC must validate the voters’ register for the November polls as proposed by the Justice VCRAC Crabbe panel.
