Some NDC MPs Will Be Bought By The NPP- Lord Hamah Declares

Lord Hamah, a former member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has argued that in two years to come, some MPs of the NDC will be compromised by the NPP as they are not people ideologically motivated but are rather careerist.

According to Lord Hamah, the jubilation of the MPs of the NDC in parliament is not well informed considering the fact that the incumbent Akufo-Addo led government still holds the majority of seats in the 8th parliament.

Speaking on the current state of leadership in the NDC, Lord Hamah argued that in the absence of Jerry John Rawlings, the parliamentary wing of the NDC will outshine all sectors of the party

In the phase of such development, he argued that it will erode the gains in popularity and control of John Dramani Mahama in the NDC unless he could command significant resources.

“It portends that this development will erode the gains in popularity and control of JM within the party unless he could command significant resources. Whatever the case, in two years time most of the NDC MPs will be compromised by the lure of wealth and privilege. These are mostly not conviction politicians nor ideologically motivated. The majority are at worst neoreactionary and at best careerist.”

“Also, with the 137 seats, the parliamentary wing of the NDC will outshine all sectors of the party, including Adabraka, as the Rawlings camp has now faded with the demise of its inspired. Parliament will become the determinate and legitimate form of authority in the NDC,” he said in a post-via his official Facebook page.

Below Is His Full Statement

The jubilation is not well informed. The NPP is still the majority in parliament. The most striking irony is that the election of Alban Bagbin is good news for the Government. At least it ensured an NDC presence at the inauguration. There is an even more interesting point.

The celebrative mode by NDC MPs– the wearing of white — endorses and communicates acceptance of the electoral system and an abondonment of aggressive posture i.e. endorsement of the status quo and return to normality.

There is another question: Can an ambitious Bagbin be trusted to tow the line of the NDC, or will he assert himself over the party as he is now the highest public office holder in a party that has no clear leadership? The warm arm of invitation in the inaugural address of President Akuffo- Addo to Bagbin has much to tell us.

In the Kufuor era, some NDC MPs professed that they were “NOT IN OPPOSITION, BUT IN MINORITY”. That created much difficulty. This time it is worse; they are in “COLLABORATION” with Government! Perhaps the celebration can be understood. No question has been raised; and will never be raised on the exgratia and pay increases of MPs by the NDC in Parliament. That tells us much. As a student of the dialectics, I conclude that Bagbin is a gift to his long time friend NADAA.
