Asiedu Nketiah Details How He Got The Name ‘General Mosquito’ (VIDEO)

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has recounted how he earned the name ‘General Mosquito’.

Asiedu Nketiah, speaking on Maakye on Kessben TV with Kwame Appiah Kubi narrated that he got the name when he was a member of parliament.

He stated while serving on the appointment committee in parliament years back, he stood firm and ensured that a ministerial nominee who was sacked at the controller’s office for theft was not approved. According to Asiedu Nketiah, the Minister was nominated as the minister for forestry meanwhile he had just been sacked from the controller’s office by his superiors for corruption. Asiedu Nketias said he saw no rationale in appointing someone who had just been sacked for corruption to a higher office.

The nominated minister being a ranking member of the government reportedly issued a number of threats through the executive arm of the government which made the other appointment committee members relent but Asiedu Nketia did not give up.

He ensured the corrupt nominated minister was not appointed which eventually earned him the title ‘General Mosquito’
