Koku Anyidoho Salutes Okudzeto Ablakwa for NDC’s Authority to Ban Members for Outbursts

It appears that Koku Anyidoho has responded to Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s recent statement that he will not support fellow parliamentarians who defy the party’s orders. Koku has used this opportunity to reinforce his belief that there is treachery within the party and that his views are being vindicated. He shared a video of Ablakwa with a caption that suggests that he feels his previous criticisms of the party are now being proven correct. It is unclear what Koku means by the phrase “principled thinking Rewrite” as it may be a typo or a reference to a specific concept or movement.

What Ablakwa said:

Last Friday at the University of Health and Allied Science in Ho, Ablakwa spoke at the Obaasima Campus Tour event and expressed that certain actions by some of his colleagues have led to a loss of credibility for the NDC in the eyes of many Ghanaians

The individual stated that they have no intention of collaborating with the “treacherous” members of the NDC, even if it results in their suspension from the party.

According to them, during a previous instance, they were instructed to hold a press conference declaring their opposition to the president’s appointees, only to have over 30 NDC members betray them by voting in favor of the appointees.

They emphasized that they cannot support such behavior, as it lacks credibility and undermines the party’s reputation with the Ghanaian public.

The individual asserted that they do not believe in disloyal politics, politics without principles, or politics of betrayal, and will not align with those who practice it, even if it means facing suspension or expulsion from the party.


On March 24, Parliament approved all six ministerial nominees and the nominees of the Supreme Court of President Akufo-Addo. The voting process was tense, with some Members of Parliament (MPs) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) breaking ranks and voting in favor of the approval, contrary to the party’s decision to vote against it.

The final results showed that all nominees received more than the minimum of 138 votes required, as three eligible voters were absent. However, some NDC leaders, including former President John Dramani Mahama, criticized the MPs who voted in favor and accused them of betraying their supporters and Ghanaians for their own interests.

MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa challenged the alleged bribed MPs to come forward and explain why they voted to approve the nominees. According to Cape Coast South MP, Kweku George Ricketts-Hagan, some MPs were bribed to vote in favor of the approval.

It remains to be seen how this will affect the political landscape in Ghana and the future of the NDC party.
