The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has finally commented on the marriage between Chief Hamilton Biney and Maame Afia Akoto.
This follows the hue and cry that greeted the holy matrimony between the party’s Deputy Organiser, Chief Hamilton Biney and the New Patriotic Party’s Maama Afia Akoto.
But commenting on the issue on Adom FM, the chief scribe of the NDC revealed that he sees nothing wrong with the pair’s decision to spend their life together.
He avers that forcing party members to marry among themselves will belittle the dignity of such individuals.
“What I said sometime back was only an advise but the party doesn’t control members on who and where to get married so people shouldn’t relate my advice to this issue; besides, I believe Chief Biney can convince his wife, Afia Akoto, to join the NDC,” he noted.
“The more we force our people to marry themselves, the more we belittle the dignity of our women. Everyone has the right to decide what they want so if Chief Biney wants to marry a woman from a different political party, that’s fine,” he said.
The latest comment by Mr Nketia, however, contradicts earlier submission that party members should marry among themselves.
