onald Senanu Agumenu, a former special assistant to the late former president Jerry John Rawlings, has stated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) must right now reevaluate the future the party envisions and create a solid governance structure for achieving national development.
When two products are suitable for a competitive market, the dynamics of the market forces would either reposition one or require a person to reexamine some exceptional qualities of the two, he said, referring to the upcoming competition between Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo for the position of National Chairman of the NDC.
If that happened, he claimed, one would evaluate each brand’s USP and choose which one could serve as their star brand with a competitive edge to lead the market.
The exciting thing, he wrote, is that I understand this and appreciate it from President Rawlings’ and Chairman Ampofo’s perspectives on General Asiedu Nketia.
“We are on a complex path that requires a bold decision to distinguish the brand we need at this difficult time to redefine the future we believe in as a party and chart a robust governance framework for national development,” he continued.
Next year, the NDC will elect its national executives as part of its preparations for the general elections of 2024.
Asiedu Nketia is attempting to unseat Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the current National Chair.
While Chairman Ofosu-Amofo feels Mr Asiedu Nketia has the best qualifications to be the National again and should therefore be elected, Mr Asiedu Nketia believes he has the strength to withstand the “marauding” New Patriotic Party (NPP).
