Award-winning investigative journalist known for terrorizing the Kufuor government and affiliated to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Raymond Archer has broken his long silence since his Printing Press was demolished by the Trade Fair.
Mr. Archer was adding his voice to calls on the members of the NDC serving on the appointments committee by the party’s grassroots to ensure “the right thing is done” to the nominees of President Akufo-Addo who due to be vetted.
According to him, any discussion about “national interest” should be examined by the NDC MPs critically as they cannot afford to let their members down.
See full unedited article below:
Almost all NDC MP’s on the appointment committee were members of the previous JM Government one way or the other. NPP maintains they were are all corrupt and incompetent. If there is anyone who falsely believe that Ghanaians voted for NDC so that they can work together, I implore them to look as what happened in the past 4yrs, the NPP in power systematically tried and succeeded to to a large extent to destroy all the pillars of the NDC, they have demonized it’s leaders, made them them look like a bunch of idiots. As we speak, they are in court trying to jail the party’s chairman whilst they are openly urging JM to be burnt alive, whilst people who dare speak against their Candidate are quickly arrested. Look at the way sitting MPs were beaten in Ayawaso, look at the level of terror unleased on the NDC during the last election, look at the way businesses of people linked to the NPP have been destroyed, look at the way our MP’s and JM suffered to raise funds for the this election. Look at the way anything pro NDC has been systematically targeted and destroyed. Look at the the way Dr Opuni has been targeted for prison. Look at the way Radio gold has been Silenced. Look at the way the NDC’s opportunity to form the next government has been snatched from.
If there is anything Ghanaians are looking for from the NDC, it is to hold the NPP responsible for all the heinous things they have perpetrated in the past 4 years. I have heard false claims that Ghanaians voted massively for the NDC and took the majority away from the NPP because they wanted NDC and NPP to “work together for the national interest” why would anyone want to work with an “Incompetent” and “corrupt” group like the NDC ? If Ghanaians were happy with the NPP, they would have given them the majority to “continue” working in the “National Interest”. No one changes what is good. In any case, what is National Interest. Most of these NDC MP’s campaigned on their Party’s manifesto. So what does “working together” mean? Does it mean the NDC MP’s must abandon the policies voters who voted for them believe and pursue the policies of the NPP? That sounds and looks more like working for the NPP. If the NPP says, we all have equal members in the house so let us implement both manifestos, then it would make sense, anything less is WORKING for THEM rather than working with them.
There are so many Ghanaians who are expecting NDC MP’s to disqualify a lot of the nominees. You have your only chance to hold your OPPONENTS to account, it is the only chance the NDC has to make their voters happy. I also urge you NEVER to forget and ABANDON all your members who deserve to be in parliament but are languishing at home because of what we all know happened on December 7. Keeping pushing for justice for them.
KADIMA!!!! LETS SHOOT FORWARD.
