The National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba has said plans by some unscrupulous people to tarnish his image as well as that of his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will fail just as the coronavirus pandemic has failed the Electoral Commission and President Akufo-Addo's agenda towards the 2020 general elections.
He also denied granting interviews on Accra-based radio station, Power FM.
In a press release purported to be from the high office of the NDC field Marshall, he details how his critics and haters of the opposition National Democratic Congress will fail just as the Electoral Commission chair, Jean Mensah and President Nana Addo's agenda towards election 2020 have failed.
In the statement, Joshua Hamidu Akamba called on President Nana Addo to use his high office to drastically reduce fuel prices, LPG gas and absorb completely electricity bills of Ghanaians most especially those affected by the lockdown.
He appealed to the bigwigs of the NPP to call their communicators to order as the pandemic knows no political party.

HATRED FOR NDC AND JOSHUA HAMIDU AKAMBA WILL CONTINUE TO FAIL LIKE FIXED DATES FOR NEW VOTER ID CARD REGISTRATION BY EC
Good day ladies and gentlemen.
Please my attention has been drawn to a statement going viral on the internet titled "Paying water bills for three months is not relief. Whilst we have Ghanaians students dying in WUHAN, you are wasting money on Kumasi people's water bills because that's your political stronghold" - Joshua Akamba, National Organizer of NDC.

The above statement for reasons best known to the writer made reference to me as the author. The public is hereby informed that the information is malicious, fake, false and mischievously crafted by some sycophants of the ruling New patriotic party, calculated not just to score cheap political points, but also, to drag my good name and the name of my political party (National Democratic Congress) into contempt and ridicule.
To set the Records straight,
1 For About 2 months now, I have not granted even interviews on power fm.
2. The particular virus which the Government of Nana Addo failed to fight knows no political colour and these are some of the reasons why the Great NDC, Our Flagbearer and the next president of Ghana is all over Ghana Sharing PPE'S to all hospitals and our hardworking Frontline fighters.
The public is hereby advised by this release to ignore and treat any such cowards, malicious and politically motivated statements and publications with the contempt it deserves.
I, therefore, request and appeal to the president of the Republic to as a matter of urgency to absorb the Electricity bills and at least reduce prices of LBG gas too because the Majority of Ghanaians in the lockdown areas will be using more of them than the eater.
Hon. Joshua Hamidu Akamba,
NDC National Organizer
