    Approval of Ministers: The damage done to NDC may take decades to rebuild – Ablakwa

    Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) brand has been damaged by the decision of its lawmakers to vote to approve all the six ministerial nominees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

    He said the damage may take decades to repair.

    In a tweet, he said “The damage these judases and Esaus have done to our party’s brand and public interest in our caucus may take decades to repair.

    “As we struggle to rebuild the NDC may the treacherous elements be exposed and may the good Lord forgive them their trespasses.”

    “If we cannot be trusted in opposition when crumbs are at stake, how do we expect the Ghanaian people to send us into government where we shall be entrusted with all of Ghana’s resources,” he added.

    The party has also condemned the decision by some of its MPs to throw principle to the wind and pursue their parochial interest by voting for the ministerial nominees.

    The party said the action of these renegade MPs only betrays the express will of the NDC and “constitutes a massive stab in the back of the good people of Ghana”.

    The party said members, particularly leadership of the Caucus, who stayed true to the principles of the party must be highly commended.

    “We will stop at nothing to identify them and publicly laud them in due course,” said a statement issued by the General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey.

    “Their loyalty and patriotism will not be forgotten.”

    The party said irrespective of the “betrayal”, it continues to join forces with the millions of its supporters, and indeed Ghanaians, who are not happy with the bloated government of Akufo-Addo-Bawumia.

    “Undoubtedly, our country currently faces the biggest economic meltdown in living memory,” it said.

    “It is therefore unpardonable for any person, not to talk of a Member of Parliament who believes in the ideals of the NDC, to lend support to the ongoing recklessness by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia/NPP government.”
