“Let me tell you a secret, 2008 he voted for Prof. Mills”, Dr. Kwabena Donkor said revealed to this reporter, Kwabena Danso-Dapaah
Dr. Kwabena Donkor continued, “People have influence and if you come to ICGC Christ Temple we the NDC people are more in the church than NPP and they know”
The NDC lawmaker who was speaking to TEIN members of the University of Education, Winneba, Kumasi campus said, the party lost power to then opposition NPP because of misguided utterances by some government appointees and party officials against religious leaders.
“We have insulted pastors, religious leaders, and everybody. …it is when you have no argument you turn to insult. The insults will not help”, he pointed out admonishing the youth to quit politics of insults.
” We must change our style of campaigning. …we had the power and fed up with it and gave it out it to the NPP. …we the intellectuals must change the way we interact with the people”, Dr. Kwabena Donkor said.
