Chief Executive Officer of the Atta Mills Institute, Mr. Koku Anyidoho has dismissed suggestions that his loyalty to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) waned following the death of ex-President Atta Mills and his (Koku’s) subsequent defeat in his quest for the General Secretary position.
Some Ghanaians, including elements within the opposition party, questioned Koku’s support to the NDC in the wake of the excruciating blow he suffered in his bid to become the NDC’s General Secretary.
To clear all doubts, the former NDC Deputy General Secretary stressed that he is still a card-bearing member of the opposition party who loyally served the late President Atta Mills and the NDC, even more strongly after the death of the former president.
Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, Mr. Anyidoho revealed that he had juicy offers both local and international after the demise of the ex-president, but turned them down to serve his party.
“I am still a card-bearing member of the NDC and as you said, President Mills became President on the ticket of the NDC and I served him as a loyal NDC member and when he died, I didn’t turn my back on the party in spite of the fact that I had offers at that time, very juicy offers both locally and internationally and I didn’t turn my back on the party,” he hinted.
“I stayed on till after the 2012 election; it entered in 2013-2014 and I weighed the options and I went and contested to become the Deputy General Secretary of the party and I won overwhelmingly. I served the party in that capacity for four solid years at the Headquarters,” he stressed.
He was also quick to drive home the point that, during his stewardship as the NDC’s Deputy General Secretary, Mr Mahama was the flagbearer and President; but his allegiance never faltered.
“I served loyally for four years and within those four years, I am sure that the NDC was in a very comfortable lead when I was doing the work in the heat of the election, the NDC was in a comfortable lead and at that time, who was the President? Was it not John Mahama? That time, President Mills was not the President and so I served loyally and this was in 2016,” he mentioned.
He reiterated that his loyalty for the NDC went beyond the point where “we lost 2016 election and that was what happened; and then 2017 I was still the Deputy General Secretary as well as 2018 to the extent that I ended up in BNI custody just still working for the party”.
