General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has asked women of the party to marry men who support the NDC.
He said when that happens they will produce children who will grow to support NDC like some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) did in the past to speed up growth and also foster the strength of its ideology.
Nicknamed General Mosquito, the NDC General Secretary said allowing the youth of the umbrella family to mingle with those of the opponent elephant fraternity and other political divide in marriage will not help their growth numerically.
“We shouldn’t allow NPP men to come and marry NDC women because if that happens, the men will force the children to become NPP supporters. If you look at Akufo-Addo’s history, his father, uncle and grandfather are all part of the big six; what happened was that they allowed their relatives to marry each other so it was difficult for Akufo-Addo to defect,” he said.
Asiedu Nketiah said this when he addressed the women’s wing of the NDC in the Ejisu Constituency of the Ashanti Region over the weekend.
“But we the NDC we have allowed NPP people to marry our women and now all the children have become NPP people…so let’s promote our women to marry NDC members so that at least all our children will become NDC members,” the NDC general secretary stated.
He encouraged party members to see the need to leave a lasting inheritance for their offsprings to pass on through generations, and members getting married to each other should be a perfect roadmap.
