Election 2024: Don’t Fight Over Positions and Appointments in Opposition – Asiedu Nketia Tells NDC Stalwarts

Asiedu Nketia cautioned party stalwarts against complacency, especially since some polls had projected Mahama to win the December elections.

The National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has urged party members to unite to win the December 7 election rather than fight over positions while still in opposition.

“I want to assure everyone that we are not there yet. Don’t be fighting about positions and don’t be struggling about who will make appointments. Let us all go for the hunting first, and when we kill the game, we will now argue about how to share the meat,” Asiedu Nketia said while addressing party supporters at the outdooring ceremony of the party’s running mate, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyeman on Wednesday.

He further cautioned party stalwarts against complacency, especially since some polls had projected Mahama to win the December elections. Some of those projections came from local research firm, Global Info Analytics and international firms like the Economic Intelligence Unit and Fitch Solutions.

“In occasions like these, we must access ourselves and identify the risks ahead of our journey to victory. I don’t intend to spoil the mood, but let me say that we are happy the polls are projecting a massive victory for us both for president Mahama and the resounding majority in parliament in 2025. But I would like to caution that polls victory alone don’t constitute any victory for any political party,” Asiedu Nketia said.
