Koku Anyidoho, a former deputy secretary of the National Democratic Congress has denied assertions that his perceived criticism of the party and some of its members is due to the defeat he suffered at the party’s congress two years ago.

Asiedu Nketiah was retained as General Secretary of the party at the expense of Anyidoho who polled 1,625 of the over 9,000 votes cast.

Since the exercise, Anyidoho has made certain pronouncements which are deemed to be a criticism of his party.

In certain instances, Anyidoho has passed comments which seek to praise the NPP administration, particularly Nana Akufo-Addo.

Anyidoho’s ‘interesting’ take on national issues have been attributed to the defeat he suffered at the hands of Asiedu Nketiah.

But in an interview with Okay FM, Anyidoho said he is not bitter and has moved on from that defeat.

He subtly jabbed the NDC with the statement that “if the logic is that losing elections makes one bitter, then those who lose presidential elections woefully must be very bitter in this country”.

He added that “I served as a deputy general secretary in the interest of the party. People say I’m bitter because I lost congress, I’m not bitter”.

Anyidoho also confirmed that he was betrayed by his competitor who had earlier agreed not to compete in the elections.

“The gentleman’s agreement I had with the person is that he wouldn’t contest again. So, if we reach an agreement and you change your mind and want me to step down, I won’t do it because you don’t control my destiny. My destiny is in the hands of God so you can’t tell me that I should wait so that when you are tired then you endorse me, I don’t need your endorsement. The only endorsement I need is from God”.
