The leader of the group, Godwin Henyo said; “The Action Movement is saying exactly what sent us to a humiliating opposition. Our executives did not spread the campaign funds in the 2016 election, instead kept them for themselves. Bad utterances from JM to nurses and party elders. The women front was broken by Lordina; JM’s wife.”

The group which is mainly made up of grassroots members of the NDC in Ketu South Constituency justified said they are making these reasons public because the leaders are not listening to them.
The Ketu South Constituency is the Electoral Commission’s largest constituency, and is also referred to as the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC.
Godwin Henyo, said the leadership of the party must quickly put strategic measures in place in order to organise an early congress to elect a new flagbearer.
Meanwhile, a fact-finding committee led by Kwesi Botchwey has been set up to find the cause of the party’s defeat and also make recommendations going forward.
In some places the committee has visited they have been attacked by some aggrieved party sympathisers.
