The NDC Council of Elders Chairman for South Africa, Mr. Benjamin Kofi Quashie, has stated that the change in the party’s leadership in Parliament is a sign of hitting at the New Patriotic Party’s vulnerabilities.

He believes that given the economic mess in which Ghana finds itself, the country’s failing economy needs a fresh perspective, and the party leadership in Parliament needs to reflect this.

He, therefore, stated that the reshuffle should not result in any chaotic situation within the party.

The Allied Consortiums Group Chairman believes that a house divided against itself cannot win any battle but, if the NDC can close its ranks irrespective of the leadership changes in Parliament, they can win the 2024 general elections.

He averred that chaos, misunderstanding and conflicts are normal within any group, however, he is urging all party members to put their individual differences aside, come together and be battle ready for 2024.

Speaking in an interview with Nyansa TV on Tuesday 24th January, 2023 while expressing his views concerning the current leadership change in the NDC front in Parliament, he disclosed that “Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The ladder is real. The climb is all there are comrades. This change in our leadership in Parliament is a sign of us hitting at the NPP’s vulnerabilities.”

He added that “Matters of our ailing economy need a finance mind. It will make sense to us all soon! We’ve elected fearless and results-driven executives. The NDC would be united and poised to win the 2024 election,” Mr. Kofi Quashie affirmed.

The SA NDC Council of Elders Chairman made these statements when it emerged on Tuesday that, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has made changes in the party’s leadership structure in Parliament with Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson replacing Haruna Iddrisu as Minority Leader.

The party informed the Speaker of Parliament of the changes in a letter dated January 23, 2023, signed by the General Secretary, Fifi Kwetey.

Among the changes, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah also replaces James Avedzi as the Deputy Minority Leader while Kwame Agbodza is now the Minority Whip with Ahmed Ibrahim as the First Deputy Whip and Comfort Doyo Ghansah as Second Deputy Whip.

This change in the party’s leadership in Parliament has ruffled the feathers of some of the rank and file. It is against the backdrop of this, that Mr. Benjamin Kofi Quashie has charged party followers to respect the decision of the party and to support same for victory in 2024 election.
