Embattled General Secretary of the Peoples National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed has said he won’t rest until the leader of the PNC, Dr. Edward Mahama resigns from his position as leader of the Party.
According to him, his presence (Dr. Edward Mahama) in the party as its leader is a threat to the party since he is in bed with the government of the New Patriotic Party.
“As it stands now Dr. Edward Mahama is a threat to the party because he is in bed with the governing political party the NPP. So if our position contradicts that of the Nana Addo led administration how will he kick against it when he is part of the government? He cannot because he is part of the government now”.
Atik Mohammed who was speaking on Bolgatanga-based A1 Radio said he will not be a part of illegality and that there was the need for leaders of the party to be firm in order to get Dr. Edward Mahama out from the leadership position.
Mohamed Atik however, indicated that he is not against Dr. Edward Mahama accepting to be an Ambassador at Large but is worried that he occupying the position and also being at the helm of affairs in the PNC will stifle the growth of PNC as a strong opposition that will work for Ghana.
On his suspension from office, he insisted that he is still the party’s General Secretary and until he is voted out of office he will continue to occupy the position he has been mandated to occupy by the good people of the Peoples National Convention.
