The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Aseidu Nketiah has said, that the ongoing demonstration witnessed across the country by members and supporters of the National Democratic Congress, is not all about the Presidency of former President John Dramani Mahama.
Speaking on GhOne TV monitored by Apexnewsgh.com on Thursday, November 23, 2020, the general stressed that the demonstration was activated by the aggrieved members of the NDC across the country is about sovereignty that has come under attack which affects every Ghanaian.
He cited the big 6 as an example of the good effect of the demonstration.
“The demonstration is not all about the presidency of John Dramani Mahama, is about the sovereignty, is about our sovereignty that has come under attack, and it affects every Ghanaian. So, if you sit there and be thinking that the demonstration is an NDC matter, it doesn’t affect me, before you are aware, you will be under bondage. The 1948 riot which led to the arrest of the big 6, eventually, people were saying why is our life been disturbed, what is this demonstration all about and so on, and in fact, 5 of the big 6 eventually denied responsibility and put the blame on Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumah stood his ground that is why you are briefing as an independent citizen of an independent country now. So, if you think demonstration don’t generate results, you don’t know what democracy is all about. Demonstrations are not the only means of seeking redress, we exploring the possibility of dialogue and that is why even we are demonstrating, we are knocking on the doors of the commission to do the right thing, we have met with the peace council as the demonstration are ongoing. So, nobody should put a straight jacket on us that in a democracy when you disagree with something, the only redress available to you is to go to court, that is not true” He stressed
