Whenever impunity becomes law, resistance becomes a duty – Johnson Asiedu Nketia discloses
Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), said Minority MPs will continue to fight for what is right in Parliament and will not be forced into adopting illegitimate legislation. “Whenever impunity becomes law, resistance becomes a duty” – Johnson Asiedu Nketia discloses.
He stated that the party is committed to safeguarding the integrity of the 1992 Constitution and will vigorously oppose any attempt to undermine its authority.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia spoke during Accra’s 40th-anniversary commemoration of the December 31st Revolution on Friday.

He stated that the NDC and the Minority have resolved to put Ghana first and resist any measure that will have an adverse impact on the average Ghanaian.
According to him, the Minority members’ tenacious fight in Parliament is in the best interests of Ghanaians, not to frustrate the government or populists.
“Whenever impunity becomes law, resistance becomes a duty, and so anybody interested in the sustenance of this Constitution, you are bound by our national anthem to resist when the Constitution is being subverted, and that is why our MPs are resisting.”
He made it clear that “if they persist that they are not listening to anybody, but they want to subvert the Constitution to get what they want, what is happening in Parliament today will be chicken feed, bigger things will happen and it will continue to happen until everybody learns sense that we are all committed to defending the Constitution of Ghana.”
“Leadership is about responsibility. It is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities, and shifts blame. For example, we had a power crisis – dumsor in this country – because of a lack of investment in generation for many years, and so we were consuming more power than we generated.

“That was the situation I met, and yet I did not say it is not my fault. I went to Parliament, took responsibility for it, and promised to fix it, which we did,” he said on Friday.
Mr. Mahama took a jibe at the Akufo-Addo government, saying if President Akufo-Addo “cannot do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you.”
“Today somebody [President Akufo-Addo] claims he inherited a weak economy, which he hasn’t been able to be responsible for, five years on. It’s always about Mahama and NDC,” he intimated.
