NMC Chair Ayeboafo Urges Asiedu Nketia To Resign As NDC Chairman

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the recently elected chairman of the National Democratic Commission (NDC), has been urged by the chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC), Yaw Boadu Ayeboafo, to resign from his position on the board of the Parliamentary Service.

A political party head, according to him, cannot maintain the position’s strictest level of neutrality.

Asiedu Nketia has been a member of the board since 2021 and was elected NDC National Chairman over the weekend, defeating incumbent Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
