NDC will be a responsible opposition – Koku Anyidoho

kokuThe Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in charge of operations, Koku Anyidoho has vowed his party will act as a responsible opposition as it cedes power to rivals the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who have won the mandate to govern Ghana after the 2016 election.

Per the constitution of the Republic, elected governments are allowed a four-year mandate after which an election takes place. The NDC is paving way for a Nana Adddo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government after 8 years in power.

Speaking in an extensive interview on GHOne TV Thursday, Koku Anyidoho promised the NDC “will play its new role as an opposition responsibly.”
“I can assure that we will be responsible in opposition,” he emphasized.
Touching on the incoming NPP government, the close confidant of late President John Evans Atta Mills added:
“We are not going to wish them [NPP] bad. When they get everything right, it goes to the benefit of us [as Ghanaians]. If education is free, petrol is free and there are no more taxes, I will also benefit from it. so we wish them well.

Koku Anyidoho says the NDC while playing its role in opposition, will put the incoming government on its toes to fulfill the lofty campaign promises which have won them power.

“While we’re praying that they succeed so the whole of Ghana also succeeds, when things are not going in the right direction, we will also ask the critical questions.”

”You promised this and that, how come you are not delivering on your promises? That does not mean that you don’t wish them well. It is because you wish them well that is why you will continue to remind them of their promises,” he ssured.
