The Member of Parliament for Adenta, Kojo Adu Asare, has strongly criticised the dismised former Acting Director of the National Youth Council, Dr Sekou Nkrumah, for using the media in mounting an attack on President John Evans Attah Mills.

Dr Sekou Nrumah who was recently sacked by President Mills after criticizing the President for weak and directionless leadership says it is “almost impossible” for the NDC to succeed on its “Better Ghana” agenda because the President is not charistmatic and too weak a leader to take bold decisions.

He has once again reiterated his call for a “more dynamic personality, who is strong-willed and can inspire national confidence” to challenge the President for 2012 election, which would be a difficult battle for the ruling party to win.

But, speaking on an Accra based radio station, Oman fm this morning Thursady, August 26, 2010, the Member of Parliament for Adenta, Hon. Kojo Adu Asare disagreed with Dr Sekou’s assertion and the choice of medium he has chosen in channeling his course.

‘I don’t understand why Dr Sekou Nkrumah has made it his business to hop from one media house to another churning out all sorts of uncomplimenting comments about our President who is very competent and working ardously to raise the living standards of Ghanaians’, he said.

” Dr Sekou Nkrumah, should know that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a democratic party, welcomes divergent views among its members but expects the members to use the party’s laid down structures to put across their concerns’, he added.

Hon. Kojo Adu Asare however reposed confidence in President Mills to wholly deliver his promise of a better Ghana agenda.
