A member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo has lashed out to the leadership of the party, describing the current state of the party as a “lazy opposition.”

According to him, the leadership of the party has failed to rally Ghanaians to pile pressure on the ruling government to deal with pressing issues.

Speaking in reaction to recent actions by pressure groups in the country to protest worsening living standards, which have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukraine war, Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo stressed that such initiatives should have been led by the NDC.

He said, “NDC is not responsible but rather a lazy opposition party. The party leadership must sit up and deal with this particular government in the manner it is supposed to be dealt with which is a massive demonstration…Now everybody is trying hard to survive because of the economic hardship and I keep asking my colleagues in the NDC that if we were in power and the economy was like it, what would they have done? The [NPP] would have been on the streets every day.”

He also noted that the NDC is rather busy in opposition with releasing statements and holding press conferences every time the government has goofed.

“This is why I keep calling the NDC a lazy opposition because we can’t be doing Kempinski press conferences. I am saying it as it is and I want anybody who disagrees with me to take me on… If the demonstrations have been massive, the ruling party will spend time to address these pressing issues rather than to spend time to hold regional elections,” he stated.
