NDC Doesn’t ‘Involve’ Its Intellectuals – Kpessah Whyte

Former Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Dr Michael Kpessah Whyte

Former Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Dr Michael Kpessah Whyte, has said certain elements within the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are fearful of the party’s intelligentsia, thus fail to involve them in decision making.

“There is a certain fear and fright from some people within the party, of intellectuals [in the NDC] and I think that is terrible,” he complained.

Following concerns that the NDC is a party for the masses and one without intellectuals, the political scientist told Moro Awudu on Class91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show on Tuesday, August 29 that: “It is less the case that the NDC doesn’t have intellectuals and more the case of maybe the NDC doesn’t involve the intellectuals in decisions that go on and [that has] become more or less the position of the party.”

…………….“The NDC is a mass party but I think within the NDC, some people have taken the idea of the party of the masses too far to mean that you don’t need the intellectuals necessarily to lead and I think that it is probably one of our undoing as a party,” he lamented.

Loaded with meaning. Are the current leaders not intellectuals or the decisions taken by the party’s leaders lack in intellect ?

What do you think?
