‘Enough of your silence; support executives for victory 2020 – Agbemava to Fmr JM appointees

Wed, 12 Feb 2020 Source: myxyzonline.com

A private legal practitioner and National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist, Elikplim Agbemava has bemoaned the silence and a seeming lack of will on the part of former appointees of the erstwhile Mahama administration to step forward and help mobilise grassroot support for the party’s victory in the 2020 general elections.

The one-time failed NDC flag bearer aspirant believes the experience and expertise of the former appointees, who are willing to be appointed again when the party is voted into power in December, need to be brought on board in various sectors of the economy to augment the administrative roles of their executives.

“…I will like to fire this out of my mind. I know the party executives are working very hard for the NDC. But they are just administrators. Administering a party is enough headache. To also dump the burden of moving from radio and TV station to station on them is unconscionable,” Agbemava noted as he commended the party leaders.

To him, the NDC national communication officer, Sammy Gyamfi, whom he described as “one man 1000” shouldn’t be left to defend the party alone in the media as is the case in recent days.

“I ask who are those who want to be ministers in the next JM government? Where are the parliamentary shadow ministers for the various sectors of the economy. Issues of health, corruption and the environment have been very topical national issues. Yet Sammy Gyamfi is the one man 1000.It can’t work this way,” he observed and quizzed, “Are we waiting to assume front line positions when the trophy is won?”

The lawyer’s comment seem to have stemmed from the manner in which some visibly loud appointees were seen defending the then NDC government but have gone on hibernation as the party needs men and women to mobilise people for the party.

Below is what Mr Agbemava posted on his Facebook page;

Today is Sunday but I will like to fire this out of my mind. I know the party executives are working very hard for the NDC. But they are just administrators. Administering a party is enough headache. To also dump the burden of moving from radio and TV station to station on them is unconscionable.

I ask who are those who want to be ministers in the next JM government? Where are the parliamentary shadow ministers for the various sectors of the economy.

Are we waiting to assume front line positions when the trophy is won?

If that is the strategy then I am sorry. The sweetness of the pudding is in the eating thereof.

If you know you are compromised and therefore cannot risk your liberty to exercise your freedom of speech them I am afraid you are not useful to the party now. Give way to new blood. Rotten wood does not light fires.
