Director of Communications for the ruling NDC in the Central Region, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has slammed former acting National Coordinator of the National Youth Council (NYC), Dr Sekou Nkrumah, for deciding to ditch the ruling party describing him as a “confused” and “immature” politician.
“Sekou Nkrumah is a novice in politics and does not understand the dynamics of Ghanaian politics, yet he is forcing himself into the political spectrum of this country. Just because his father made it in politics, he thinks he can too,” he said.
The Son of Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, on Tuesday, September 13, shocked political pundits by announcing his resignation from the NDC, because he felt his role in the party had become somewhat insignificant. Other reasons he assigned for his resignations were that his continuous stay in the NDC is a stumbling block to the progress of her sister, Samia Nkrumah, who was recently elected National Chairman of the Convention People’s Party; to rebuild party.
Contributing to discussions on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning Show, Allotey Jacobs posited that Sekou’s resignation will not in any way affect the fortunes of the ruling party and might rather be a blessing in disguise. He rubbished accusations by Sekou that the Atta Mills’ administration is not making enough dynamic moves to change the lives of Ghanaians and has also deviated from the party’s Social Democratic agenda.
“Sekou is accusing the NDC of having a fumbling leader; he himself is always fumbling…I see him as a confused and immature politician. Maybe the sister will need to educate him a lot because for her to win Jomoro seat and the CPP chairmanship means she is humble, has a listening ear and good advisors. Sekou is however entitled to his own opinions but as far as the NDC is concerned, we will grow stronger day by day, when one goes out, thousands comes in,” he stressed.
“I heard Sekou saying that he has resigned from NDC…The NDC did not force him into the party, he joined on his own volition and campaign for the party…He decided to join the NDC based on the fact that there was no hope for the CPP and…so he felt at home with the NDC. Now he has fallen out with the NDC and we don’t know if he is leaving because of his sister’s victory…when you ask him about it he goes around calling people names and indicting the NDC party…When he joined the NDC, he should have shut up, sat back and watched how the party operates,” he noted
