Former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yamin, has urged members of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) to desist from playing the blame game following the party’s defeat in the December 7 elections.

According to him, the NDC will be doing itself a great disservice if it continues to publicly point accusing fingers at some members, as others may be forced to open the Pandora’s box.
The NDC lost last Wednesday’s general polls, both Presidential and Parliamentary in an election that the party was so confident of winning, due to the massive infrastructural development carried out by President John Mahama in his first term of office.

But on Friday, December 9, 2016, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, declared the NPP’s presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo winner and President-elect of the Republic of Ghana.

The opposition leader polled 5,716, 026 votes to beat the incumbent President John Dramani Mahama who garnered 4,713,277 votes out of the 10,615,361 valid votes cast.

The NDC’s painful defeat suffered at the hands of its bitterest political opponent has caused some disappointed members including former Ejusi Juaben, Municipal Chief Executive to mention names of certain key party and government officials whose actions and inactions they claim caused the NDC’s downfall.

However, speaking on Okay FM, Joseph Yamin, who is a former Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC and currently, the Deputy National Coordinator of NADMO, called for restraint among members as the party does an introspection.

“This is an eye opener for us as a political party, we need to re-organize ourselves as soon as possible. To me, I’ll advise Yamoah Ponkoh and others to stop dropping names of people they accuse of causing NDC’s defeat. If we sit down in a room and have a discussion over the matter, there’ll be a lot for me to say. In an enclosed place, if we have to beat someone for causing this painful defeat that we have suffered, we’ll do so. But to wash our dirty linen in public, I think that we’ll not be doing ourselves any good.”
