As the countdown to the Presidential Primaries of the National Democratic Congress get hotter and keener, the Ashanti Regional General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Joseph Yamin says the campaign towards July has become dirtier; this he said has created unnecessary divisions in the Party.

He stated that some of the campaign members are intimidating, insulting and attacking personalities in the party just to win the slot.

According to him, the NDC has been divided into three lines just because of selfish and personal favours and interests of some people to the disadvantage of the party.

Mr. Yamin caution that that the result of the power struggle will lead to the party losing power to the NPP if the delegates and leaders of the party do not stop the intimidation and insults just to win favours from delegates.

The Ashanti Regional Secretary speaking to Adakabre Frimpong Manso on Dwaso Nsem today, he stressed that the same thing happened in the party in 2000 when some of the members of the NDC left the party to form and join other parties.

He reiterated that there are people in the NDC who have not sacrifice enough for the party but yet they holding ministerial appointment and serving on numerous boards.

Some of the great people in the party who have sacrifice their lives, resources and time for the party have not been appreciated all because of the division and selfish gains in the party, he added.

He noted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lost power similarly in 2008 because of the power struggling among the Flagbearer Nana Akuffo- Addo and Mr. Alan John Kyeremanteng.

Commenting on who he supports ahead of the congress, Mr. Joseph Yamin said until the General Secretary Asiedu-Nketia declared his supports he will not come out to declare his stand.

The Managing Editor of Al Hajj newspaper, Alhaji Bature said the tension in the party is not out of the ordinary but a normal occurrence that can happen in every party especially when members compete for position.

However, Alhaji Bature said members should be more careful with their utterances because it can lead to the downfall of the party.

Speaking on his expectation in the July, he said there will be no surprises at the congress since he claim the election is a one way traffic.

Alhaji Bature stated that for him, it’s about how much percent the candidate will win but not who will win.

He condemned the various insults by some section of the campaign members channel to tarnish the reputation of the President describing those efforts as expression of disrespect to the Presidency.
