Give us a break with your reckless talk – Stan Dogbe tells Braimah on ‘centre can’t hold in NDC’ comment


A former Presidential Staffer under the John Mahama administration, Mr Stan Dogbe has told the Executive Secretary of the Media Foundation for West Africa Sulemena Braimah to stop making reckless comment that the center can no longer hold in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Replying to Mr Braimah’s comments in a tweet, he said “Reckless statement! Your NPP, never has disagreements? Post their acrimonious General Secretary election, have they not finally patched up? Is Ken Agyapong not fighting VP Bawumia across the country? Give us a break with your reckless talk.”

Regarding the fallouts from the youth and women’s organizer elections held last Saturday and also the upcoming national executive election on Saturday December 17, Mr Sulemana Braimah said the NDC appear unable to manage even the party, yet they are seeking to manage the nation.

This followed the verbal attacks traded among some leading members of the party including the re-elected youth organizer, George Opare Addo, Ningo Prampram Lawmaker Samuel Nartey George and National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi.

For instance, Opare Addo said he will take none of the attacks launched against him by Sam George.

Samuel Nartey George on Tuesday, December 13 took to social media to slam Mr Opare Addo following what he describes as “asinine” and “reckless” comments by his party’s Youth Organiser on an Accra-based radio station.

“Let me serve notice to him that others he attacks may choose to be silent but not Sam George. This should be the last time he goes anywhere and runs his loose mouth on my person,” Sam George wrote.

“Today, he calls me an influence peddler! I do not blame him. When in 2008, I wrote all his campaign speeches because he was not connecting with his electorates, I guess I was peddling influence? What has he achieved that I would be jealous of?
“He attempted to go to Parliament and lost miserably at a time the NDC as a party was most attractive and won the 2008 elections. Is it his failure I would be envious of? When in 2015, 2016, 2019 & 2020 I went up against the establishment both within and outside our Party and WON all those elections, where were you”
Mr Opare Addo said on Asempa FM that Sam George was being ungrateful because he doesn’t want to recount the help he has offered him before.
He stated that Sam George does not even have any respect among fellow Minority MPs in Parliament.
He said the lawmaker had to be aided by the removal of names from the Ningo Prampram NDC album before he secured his much-touted win over his opponents in the party’s primaries.

Regarding the contest for the national chair position, one of the aspirants Johnson Asiedu Nketia believes the incumbent who is seeking reelection, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo is not fit for the post.

He has publicly blamed him for the inability of the NDC to collate the results of the 2020 elections, leading to the failure of the election petition filed at the Supreme Court by John Mahama.

Sharing his views on these happenings in the NDC, Mr Sulemana Braimah said in a tweet that “The centre can no longer hold in the NDC. The people who are supposed to be leading are rather fighting each other. They appear unable to manage even the party, yet they seeking to manage the nation!!”
