'My son Was Fired From Work Because Of My NDC Affiliation'' - Asiedu Nkatia

The General Secretary of Ghana’s opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has finally opened up on why his son lost his job 3 years ago after the ruling NPP came into power.

He revealed this during an interview on JoyNews AM Show with Mamavi Owusu on Thursday the 21st of May, 2020.

According to him, his son was sacked from his post because he was deemed to be too politically exposed – that he might help in the importation of weapons should NDC come back into power. He added that his son has been unemployed and at home for three years now.

“My son is out of work. he happened to be working with a private company at the harbor. Now that private company operates with a government license, then the management of the GPHA squeezed that private company and insisted that until my son is sacked, the license will be withdrawn so my son had to be sacked,” he said.

General Mosquito, as he is popularly known is also recounted how political victimization in Ghana led to the collapse of his block factory.

He said;

“Contractors who buy blocks from me are not paid when the government gets to know they owe Asiedu Nketia. The money is there but they just won’t pay,”

Before, during and to the end of the meeting, over 60 heavily armed policemen have been stationed at all entry and exit points of the EC office here in Accra.

Some people think it sends fear into the citizens given that it was just a meeting – how would the election itself be? Others wondered whether the EC was going to war or something similar.

Some also were of the view that, if the EC was doing the right thing, why are they scared to mount such a mammoth security presence?
