The NPP Member of Parliament for Fanteakwa Constituency in the Eastern Region, Hon Kwabena Amankwah Asiamah, says the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) party least expected to win the 2008 General Elections, and has a result is suffering from a condition known as ‘pathological transfiguration governance stress syndrome’.
According to him, the NDC is confronted with a myriad of problems because they were caught by surprise when power was suddenly thrust into their hands.
“…the NDC despite all their vigorous campaign, were largely unprepared for power in 2008. And so when they finally won the elections, they now seem to be at a loss as to how to govern the country,” Hon Amankwah Asiamah posited.
Contributing to a panel discussion on PeaceFM’s Kokrokoo Morning show, the Fanteakwa MP claimed that President Mills is been inundated with attacks from members of his party and thus making it difficult for him to concentrate on his core duty of bettering the living conditions of Ghanaians.
Touching on President Mills call on Ghanaians to bury their differences and forge ahead in unity, the NPP MP rather asked the President to start the peace efforts from his backyard.
President Mills, at a convention, dubbed "Impact 2010", by the Action Chapel International (ACI) in Accra over the weekend, urged Ghanaians to bury their political differences and work towards building a united nation.
"I wish to urge you to pray ceaselessly for the nation, no matter what political party you belong to. We are collectively working to build a better Ghana and improve the lives of our people," he appealed when he joined worshippers at the Prayer Cathedral of the ACI.
But Hon Amankwah Asiamah was of the view that prayers for the nation, though good, will not be enough to bring about peace, especially within the NDC, where party members have virtually held the president to ransom with their constant criticisms of his (President Mills’) governing style.
