The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said that a fierce critic of former President John Mahama, Dela Coffie is not a member of the party.
Speaking on Accra-based Okay FM, Asiedu Nketia said a true member of the NDC will not be criticising the party in public like Coffie does.
“He is not my boy. He speaks for Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings who is not a member of the NDC. I do not think he is a party member because he will not be saying and doing some of the things he is currently.”
Dela Coffie mainly shares his criticisms of former President Mahama on social media since the NDC’s defeat at the 2016 election.
He has accused Mahama of disuniting the once united NDC. He has often cautioned in his posts that it will not be a good idea for the leadership of the party to impose him on its members as flag bearer for election 2020.
He said the actions of the former president in respect to the Tamale Unity Walk amounts to usurping the powers of the current leadership bearing in mind that he is no longer the leader of the party after the disgraceful defeat and need to resort to structures in carrying out any activity.
However, Asiedu Nketia said, Dela Coffie who is a supporter of the Rawlings’ does not know the party’s constitution.
“I do not think he knows what he is talking about…we went for a walk in Tamale even though it is not part of the reconciliatory activities proposed by the Kwesi Botchway Committee, that is how the Northern Regional Secretariat prepared itself to receive a committee put in place by the National Council of the party to deal with differences,” he added.
