Martin Amidu's Role Will Be To Lead The NDC - And Prevent The Brutal Gang-Rape Of Mother Ghana After 7th January, 2017

Apparently, Dr. Kwame Addo-Kufuor, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) - who served as defence minister in his elder brother President J. A. Kufuor's regime for nearly 8 years - has recommended that the Hon. Martin Amidu should be appointed as a government minister when the new NPP administration assumes power on 7th January, 2017.

From the perspective of reshaping the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and returning it to its core values,  it is vital that the Hon. Martin Amidu does not join the incoming NPP administration.

It will not be in the interest of Ghanaian democracy for him to join an NPP administration at this stage.

Amidu has an important  leadership role to play in the new NDC that will emerge after the party's next national delegates conference to elect its new leaders, who will take the party forward into the future over the next four years - after the new president is sworn into office on 7th January, 2017.

That is why a number of commentators are of the opinion that it will be a huge error of judgement on Martin Amidu's part to accept a ministerial position in the next NPP government, when it finally assumes power.

In fairness to him, it ought to be pointed out that the Hon. Martin Amidu himself is obviously not in a hurry to join the incoming NPP administration - as he has even gone to the extent of harshly criticising those lobbying for a position for him, when he himself apparently has no such ambition: fevered media speculation on the subject notwithstanding.

Amidu would serve the nation he obviously loves so passionately, much better, by rather helping to rid the NDC of all the crooks whose unfathomable greed and unpardonable lack of principles over the last 8 years, have virtually destroyed the party.

When that all-important task is completed, it will be his patriotic duty to then agree to be elected to lead the party, throughout its days in the political wilderness.

Amidu is definitely the best person amongst all those suited  to lead the NDC after it elects members of the party's next national executive council - precisely because he has moral authority no politician in today's Ghana can possibly match: and ought therefore to be selected as the party's new chairperson and leader.

In that leadership role, he can speak up on ordinary people's behalf whenever their rights are trampled upon at all material times, and name and shame all those who will participate in the gang-rape of Mother Ghana after 7th January, 2017.

Without Martin Amidu's leadership and moral authority the NDC will definitely fragment into competing factions - when what Ghana urgently needs is a strong and united opposition party: led by sincere, honest and principled individuals prepared to die for Mother Ghana and stand against the emergence of tyranny of the majority in our liberal democratic nation.
