"I Cannot Vote For A Party That Failed Miserably In 2009" - Sekou Nkrumah


Son of Ghana’s First President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Nkrumah has revealed that he is disappointed in the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying he will not vote a party that failed miserably while in power in 2009.


According to him, the NDC had the opportunity to serve the ordinary Ghanaian and make a better Ghana agenda a reality for many but failed miserably due to several factors that still haunts the party.

In a statement sighted by ThinkNewsOnline, Sekou Nkrumah said "I cannot vote for a party that in 2009 had the opportunity to serve the ordinary Ghanaian and make a better Ghana agenda a reality for many but failed miserably due to several factors that still haunt the party!"


He added that he lost interest after Late President Mills showed signs of not continuing his leadership adding that it helped in exposing the hypocrisy and ill intentions of those who were in power at that time.


He said "Clearly their agenda was just to protect their positions in government and not service to the country. Nothing was working properly as the government practically had no leader. As truth could not be hidden for long, the worst happened and the good professor kicked the bucket! When John Mahama stepped into the shoes of Mills, he was clearly not ready for the top job"


He added that after Candidate John Mahama took over, the NDC government began to sink further.


Mr. Sekou Nkrumah who doubles as a Ghanaian Politician also revealed that although the results of the 2012 elections was shocking, he was wondering how the NDC could have won with such a poor performance in government.


"Was it rigged? Well, for the sake of peace I did not support the NPP’s position to go to court! I felt this tense political situation could create a very violent reaction and we as Ghanaians are better off letting it go. The 2016 elections results was a sledge hammer blow to the NDC, and a serious wake up call" he recalled.


The son of Ghana's first President also added that he cannot fathom why the leadership of the NDC party has failed to learn any lessons and decided to continue with the clueless leadership of John Mahama.


He said "So I will continue to support NPP even if only as a protest, and hope that after 2020 NDC will throw away Mahama and his cronies and reorganize the party! Only a revolution from within can save the NDC!"

Below is a copy of his release:

2020 is an elections year and once again Ghanaians will have to make a choice between NPP and NDC.


Naturally those of us on the left of Ghanaian politics should be supporting the NDC, but unfortunately I am not.


I cannot vote for a party that in 2009 had the opportunity to serve the ordinary Ghanaian and make a better Ghana agenda a reality for many but failed miserably due to several factors that still haunt the party!


The very ill president Mills was not in a position to lead, and declaring interest to run another term really exposed the hypocrisy and ill intentions of those who were in power at the time, clearly their agenda was just to protect their positions in government and not service to the country.


Nothing was working properly as the government practically had no leader.


As truth could not be hidden for long, the worst happened and the good professor kicked the bucket!


When John Mahama stepped into the shoes of Mills, he was clearly not ready for the top job. And the NDC government continued to sink further.


The results of the 2012 elections was shocking! How I wondered could the NDC win with such a poor performance in government?


Was it rigged? Well, for the sake of peace I did not support the NPP’s position to go to court! I felt this tense political situation could create a very violent reaction and we as Ghanaians are better off letting it go.


The 2016 elections results was a sledge hammer blow to the NDC, and a serious wake up call!


But unfortunately the leadership of the party failed to learn any lessons and decided to continue with the clueless leadership of JM.


So I will continue to support NPP even if only as a protest, and hope that after 2020 NDC will throw away Mahama and his cronies and reorganize the party! Only a revolution from within can save the NDC!
