National Communications Director for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has indicated that he stands by his outburst on social media as it was necessity to cause a change in the political party.
According to him, a lot had happened prior to the approval of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s nominees and that the approval of the Ministers was in violation of the party’s position and not in the interest of the country, revealing he is emboldened by the “bravery” of NDC founder, late Jerry John Rawlings.
To him, his outburst was not out of spite for any Member of Parliament or the Speaker of Parliament because he keeps a very good relationship with them.
“So when all the leadership of the party did and the agreements reached were breached so openly and brazenly and you look at the impact it will have on the party, this was not a problem that had rared its head for the first time, a number of things had happened behind the scenes and we had spoken to a number of people and I felt that at some point, somebody needed to be called out.
So it is to ensure that the right changes will happen and the right things will be done so that the NDC will grow. It is not out of spite for anybody, it is not out of disrespect for anybody but we must learn. The founder of the party was a brave man so sometimes, somebody can be your friend but you need to look at the collective good and collective interest and do certain things,” he told Power FM in an interview restreamed by MyNewsGh.com.
He indicated that he still stands by his post on Facebook and believes that if the right changes are done, it will be good for the political party. — MyNewsGh.com
