General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has described as “new wines in old bottles” the new executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He explained that he beat them in two consecutive elections thus they have no strategy to retain the NPP in power.

All NPP executives who worked for the party’s victory in 2016 were retained at its National Delegates Congress in Koforidua.

The only additions were Rita Talata Asobayire, Frederick Freduce Anto and Micheal Omarie-Wadie who were elected first, second and third vice chairpersons, respectively, Kate Gyamfua, Women’s Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye, National Youth Organizer and Abdul Aziz Futah, the Nasara Coordinator.

These men and women at the helm of affairs of the ruling party, many political pundits predict, could retain the ruling party in power.

Also, the Central Regional Chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs warned the NDC could lose the 2020 elections if delegates do not elect result-oriented executives like the NPP.

But speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday, Asiedu Nketia disagreed with those assertions.

He maintained that the new NPP executives will rather take the party back to opposition because they have failed Ghanaians.

“The NPP can make the UN General Secretary their flagbearer but will still lose the 2020 elections because they have a bad case”, he stressed.

General Mosquito as he is popularly called said he was very happy Freddie Blay, Sammy Awuku, John Boadu and the others were elected because he possesses the antidote to whatever arsenal they may have.

Asiedu Nketia is convinced the NPP has already handed over power to the NDC on a silver platter because 2020 will be a cool chop for the NDC.


  1. Panicky statements by Asiedu Nketia. He shouldn’t have described the new Executives of the NPP as “old wine in new bottles” because the older the wine, the better it becomes. More matured in taste and quality. Ask the wine producers
