We won’t publish Kwesi Botchwey’s report – Asiedu Nketia

It seems the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is not ready to make public the supposed true findings made by the Prof. Kwesi Botchwey committee on why the party was defeated in the 2016 polls.

That is the position of the party’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, who said its only meant for internal consumption.

“We’ve taken a position that Kwesi Botchwey’s report is meant for internal consumption, so it has not been published anywhere,” he said in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday.

He made the remark on the back of some documents which some media houses have claimed to be a leaked report with findings from the Kwesi Botchwey committee.

The leadership of the NDC has been tight-lipped about the findings of the report, which was submitted in June 2017, after months of touring and holding consultative meetings with interest groups and individuals across the country.

However, some media outlets including the Daily Guide newspaper and Accra-based Joy FM in series of news stories, have made public what they claim to be some findings of the committee.

The publications, among others, have pointed to Stan Dogbe and Elvis Afyiie Ankrah as John Mahama’s undoing.

It also indicated that, the report had cited some officials at the Flagstaff House during Mahama’s tenure of shortchanging journalists by cutting down budgeted stipends for the presidential press corps and pocketing the rest. But Asiedu Nketa in the interview rubbished the leaked report.
