Victor Smith responds to Koku Anyidoho’s ‘insults’
Ghana’s former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK) Victor Smith has responded to insults hurled at him by the Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in charge of operations, Koku Anyidoho.
Mr Victor Smith on Asempa FM on Wednesday said he would not be cowed into submission and will continue to speak against the slow conduct of the National Executives to pressing issues of the party.
“I think the national executives react slowly to issues which can affect the party. If you foresee trouble coming and you don’t react, it will get out of hand so they should accept our criticisms in good faith”
Mr Anyidoho on Tuesday, described him as a coward who only takes delight in operating from the touchlines but failing to confront issues affecting the party head on .
“If he is a man enough he should also bring a petition against Rawlings and stop being a coward on the touchlines. He has worked with Rawlings before and what prevents him from petitioning against him”, he rebutted on Okay FM.
“If he is a man with enough courage and brevity he should go ahead. If he is a man enough he should go into the ring fight and stop indicting national executives on the touchlines. If he is a man I am challenging him to petition against the former President and we will look into it. He is not an executive member of the party…..he should stop disturbing our ears”, he said.
According to him, he has said so many things about the national executives but they have chosen to ignore him advising to focus on making his plans straight to contest his election and leave the party leaders to do their work.
