The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia says he will not contest the position again when the party goes to primaries for new national executives.

He told Radio Gold he will either contest for the chairmanship position of the party or retire.

“Age plays a major role in everything. This job of a General Secretary involves a lot; your time, energy, among others.

“I have considered all these, and I am of the firm view that I won’t contest again. What I am saying is that, I won’t seek re-election as General Secretary, I have two other options at hand; either go for the chairmanship or retire,” Mr. Nketiah said.

There are speculations Mr Nketia who has been General Secretary for the party close to two decades is lacing his boot to contest the incumbent chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.

Meanwhile, the party has announced that it will elect its national executives on December 17,2022.

This was disclosed at a press conference on Thursday at the party’s national headquarters in Accra.

Aspirants for the national executive positions will be required to take nomination forms from October 20 to October 21, complete the forms within two weeks and file their nominations between November 5 and November 6.

The vetting will then take place on November 9 and November 10.
