General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says Communications Director of the party, Sammy Gyamfi spoke the mind of the rank and file of the party regarding his Facebook post following approval of nominees by Parliament.
Sammy Gyamfi expressed his disappointment in the NDC leadership in Parliament after they approved some nominees of President Akufo-Addo.
Speaking on Joy News, Asiedu Nketia noted that Sammy Gyamfi could have couched his message differently however, he’s been hailed by the rank and file of the party for his comment.
“Leadership is at levels and if it were somebody at the national executive who has served at Parliament before and is very conversant about the procedures and processes in Parliament maybe the statement would have been couched differently”.
“So, the fact that Sammy Gyamfi ventilated the voice of the rank-and-file of the party is not a problem; the problem was how the statement was couched. The rank-and-file are hailing Sammy Gyamfi but the problem is that some of us who know about the workings and rules of Parliament we felt that part of the statement was not in good taste.”
