He expressed dismay over the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) stance on the December 17 referendum.
According him assembly appointees even under the NDC has always been partisan whereby strictly party executives are handed district assembly position so the NDC Chairman's appeal to Ghanaians to vote ‘NO,’ to keep local government politics non-partisan is neither here nor there.
The National Chairman of the opposition party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, addressing the media, asked Ghanaians to vote ‘NO,’ to keep local government politics non-partisan as entrenched in the 1992 constitution.
The NDC argues that the polarisation of the country at the national level along party lines is enough and local governments should not suffer the same fate.
But the former local government minister has disagreed.
Speaking in an interview with Nana Ampratwum on Omanbapa SHOW, he said;
''If you tell us Assembly is non- partisan but most of government appointees are strictly party executives in the district what do you make of this''
''We have had a General Secretary of the NDC if I could remember during their Congress in 2010 saying that about 60% of the Assemblymen who won in various Assemblies nation wide were NDC sympathizers'' he told SilverFM.
