Former Editor-in-chief of The Enquirer newspaper, Raymond Archer, has announced he is kick-starting a fundraising campaign to raise money for the re-election of National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs who are putting the feet of the NPP to the fire of accountability in Parliament.
In a tweet that announced the plan, he character-sketched the NDC MPs as heroes of Ghana’s democracy, who saved the Fourth Republic on the night that they policed the election of current Speaker, Alban Bagbin, and also brave ones who are ensuring the accountability.
“The Proud Boys- First they saved our democracy from total collapse and now they are doing what they were elected to do. I am starting a 2024 fundraising for them already,” Archer wrote.
“As for the useless spin on why they were rejected, no need to dignify it with a comment.”
The post was accompanied with a video of the resistance that NDC MPs staged on the night of January 6th in Parliament to ensure that the election of Alban Bagbin as Speaker was not rigged.
The NDC MPs on the Appointments Committee have outrightly rejected three Ministerial nominees for Information (Oppong Nkrumah), Fisheries (Mavis Hawa Koomson) and Agriculture (Akoto Afriyie), citing untruthfulness, gangsterism and overreaching authoritarianism respectively.
They have also asked five others to reappear for clarifications.
