According to claims by the general secretary of the biggest opposition party, NDC, Asiedu Nketia, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said they sent three invitation letters to the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Minority in Parliament for its recently-held National Delegates’ Conference in Koforidua, Eastern Region, but they failed to show up, John Boadu, newly-elected General Secretary of the NPP has noted.
According to him, the letters were sent very early to enable the NDC prepare adequately for the event. Also, he said the recipient of the letters signed to acknowledge receipt of the invites.
Mr Boadu’s comment follows claims by the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, that he personally told Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, when the two of them met at the one-week memorial service of late Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur at the Ridge Church in Accra on Friday, 6 July 2018, that the main opposition party would not be able to honour the invitation.
There were representatives of other opposition parties who shared goodwill messages at Saturday’s event, except for the NDC.
