Our leadership betrayed and failed us, NDC supporters cry

Supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC in the Asawase constituency of the Ashanti Region have accused the party’s leadership of betraying and failing its grassroot.

It follows the recent allegation of betrayal levelled against the party’s leadership in parliament by its national communication officer Sammy Gyamfi following the approval of some ministers designate by the president.

 In a strong worded statement issued by the Asawase branch of the party accused Sammy Gyamfi of inciting the party’s grassroot against the party’s leadership in parliament after failing to perform his duty of communicating the reality on the ground to party supporters.

The statement said “Sammy Gyamfi enough of your baseless and misplaced outburst, if there are people who have contributed immensely to our failure as a party in election 2020 which subsequently left us with bruises, then there is no other people than the people of which you are part of.

“Instead of you to concentrate on reorganizing the party, you are rather blowing the trumpet of divisions and attacks on our own. If other constituencies will allow you to do that, please we at Asawase Constituency will not allow you! Not at all! You can’t sit somewhere and mislead us. It won’t happen! So trek with caution,” the statement further added.

It further questioned the affluent lifestyle of Sammy Gyamfi demanding he clears the air on how he acquired two V8 Toyota Land Cruisers.

“Can you tell us with all honesty a company or an institution in Ghana that you have worked with before possessing all that you have today and at what salary base Mr. Integrity? What do you do for a living now to lead the kind of life that you are having? You have two (2) V8 Toyota Land Cruisers; can you tell us how you bought those cars and for how many years of service to a company or an institution if any? Just to mention a few.”

Below is the full statement

Comrades, the so-called statement of betrayal by Sammy Gyamfi has come to our notice. If one is to talk about betrayal, it is the leadership of the NDC party in which Sammy Gyamfi is part that has betrayed us.

It is the leadership of the party that is not being truthful to us and betraying us, not our hard working MPs.

The leadership of the party held meeting with the leadership of the MPs caucus, they presented all their challenges in parliament as far as this voting of nominees are concern, as a vibrant communication officer as you claim you are, wouldn’t it have been prudent enough for you to make us aware of the reality on the ground than trying to incite us against our MPs?

So if you have failed to assume your responsibility as per your rules of engagement please accept it for us to move on. Come to think of it, you can’t be more Catholic than the Pope.

You can’t be more NDC than The speaker of parliament, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu and other hard working NDC MPs. As you are touting yourself with integrity than these hard working NDC MPs with rich experience in which you yourself know is not true and can’t be true with unsubstantiated allegation.

We would like to caution you to desist from this undeserving misconduct of a national officer of our great party, more importantly, the barrage of attacks on our hard working Member of Parliament, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak and his colleagues.

Mr. Sammy Gyamfi if you live in a glass house don’t throw stones and if you can’t take blow please don’t throw blows, let us have some integrity test for us to see if you will indeed pass this test for “he who comes to equity must come with clean hands”;

1. Can you tell us with all honesty a company or an institution in Ghana that you have worked with before possessing all that you have today and at what salary base Mr. Integrity?

2. What do you do for a living now to lead the kind of life that you are having?

3. You have two (2) V8 Toyota Land Cruisers; can you tell us how you bought those cars and for

how many years of service to a company or an institution if any? Just to mention a few.

Sammy Gyamfi enough of your baseless and misplaced outburst, if there are people who have contributed immensely to our failure as a party in election 2020 which subsequently left us with bruises, then there is no other people than the people of which you are part of.

Instead of you to concentrate on reorganizing the party, you are rather blowing the trumpet of divisions and attacks on our own.

If other constituencies will allow you to do that, please we at Asawase Constituency will not allow you! Not at all! You can’t sit somewhere and mislead us. It won’t happen! So trek with caution.

Signed
