Johnson Asiedu Nketia who is also Knowns as “Kwasia Bi Nti” has made strong allegations against the ruling government.
Mr Asiedu Nketia claims that two of his children lost their jobs because of his political affiliation. Speaking to Mamavi Owusu Aboagye on the AM show, the implausible politician said his son was thrown out of his job and has been unemployed for the past three years as a result of political victimization by the ruling New Patriotic Party [NPP].
According to Mr. Asiedu Nketia, his son who was previously working with a private firm at the Tema harbour was forced to resign because his resignation was the only confidence that the firm’s license will not be revoked by the government.
“My son is out of work. he happened to be working with a private company at the harbor. Now that private company operates with a government licence, then the management of the GPHA squeezed that private company and insisted that until my son is sacked, the licence will be withdrawn so my son had to be sacked,” he told Mamavi Owusu Aboagye on the AM show.
He further revealed that his daughter has undergone a similar fate because she declined to accuse another person in the name of politics.
“My daughter was also working with another government institution involved in auditing. Because of my children’s moral upbringing, they are very strict when it comes to speaking the truth and remaining with the facts.
“So she happened to be working with the Internal Audit Department of a government institution. She was sent on an assignment and given instructions to find something to implicate an innocent person for political reasons and she said she cannot do it.
“So she refused to do it and when she came back from the assignment, they had to take her from one head office to some district branch in Greater Accra and when she went there the manager [at the district branch] said ‘there is no desk for you’,” Mr Asiedu added.
Mr Asiedu Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito or Kwasia Bi Nti has been the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, from 2005 to date.
