Lawyer and Television personality Samson Anyenini has expressed shock at the reactions that have greeted Dr. Benjamin Kumbour’s assessment of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
After the just-ended election petition, matters regarding NDC’s total votes garnered came up, particularly concerns by the rank and file of the party as to why the petitioner failed to present collated figures in court.
Dr. Benjamin Kumbour recently commented that even the party’s Council of Elders do not have access to the said figures.
“Immediately after the elections, results were coming, we started seeing figures. For the ordinary party member, you said we had won the elections through the figures and collation that the party had done, why is it that those figures did not find their way to the court,” he quizzed.
He further stated that political accountability is vertical and horizontal and so it behooves on the NDC to have provided the figures they claimed existed, saying that “people don’t know today what exactly are the [NDC’s] collated figures.”
However, his comments has not gone down well with the party and some members who believe that there was no need to go for an interview to spell out the problems in the party whiles some have also subjected him to abusive attacks.
But reacting to the development, samson Anyenini expressed shock at the reactions the opinion of the elder of the party has fetched.
He in a post on Facebook said “You have such an elder intellectual storehouse heavyweight and national asset. He expresses small dissent in his usual polite manner and constructively, and matured guys join young people to insult him in the name of political speak? Very very disturbing. Dr. Kunbuor deserves utmost respect if you can’t disagree with him decently”.
