Obed Asamoah: Deserting NDC contributed to its improved internal democracy Dr Obed Yao Asamoah, founder of the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that his leaving the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to form his own party has contributed to the improved internal democracy the ruling party is currently enjoying.
The former leading member of the NDC, who deserted the party in 2006, said he left because the party was at the time not democratic enough. However, he has indicated his willingness to reunite with the NDC after he said key members of the party, including ex-President Jerry John

Dr. Obed Yao Asamoah, the latest prodigal son of the NDC, also says Rawlings never founded the NDC, giving some credence to suggestions making the rounds, of a grand scheme to neutralise the Rawlingses' hold of the party.
...
Just a day after his dramatic return to the NDC, Dr Asamoah seems to be stoking the fire on a raging debate surrounding former President Rawlings and his position in the NDC.
...
According to Obed, the list, which contains the names of persons during the registration of the NDC with the Electoral Commission of Ghana, did not include that of Rawlings.
...
"I was very instrumental in setting up the NDC, and as far as I am concerned, President Rawlings is not the founder," Obed stated.
...
Dr. Obed Asamoah parted ways with the NDC to form the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), together with some peeved members of the National Democratic Congress, after the infamous Koforidua Congress in 2006.
He left the NDC together with other senior members of the party, including then acting General Secretary, Bede Ziedeng, and Frances Asiam, a former Women's Organiser, who is now an indispensable member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Explaining his dramatic return to the NDC, Obed pointed out that their decision was informed mainly on the premise that internal democracy was gaining considerable ground in the NDC.
He also stated that the use of violence and intimidation against members with opposing views in the NDC, were things that precipitated the breaking away of the DFP
When The Chronicle reported some months ago on the intended merger between the DFP and NDC, Dr Asamoah went berserk, stating that a thing like that could only happen in The Chronicle's wildest imaginations. "I don't know where they are getting that story from," Dr. Asamoah told Citi FM, where he categorically denied the story.
Meanwhile, the biggest opposition party in the country, the New Patriotic Party says it is not perturbed about the development. According to the General Secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, the merger between the two parties was only worth two votes - being those of Dr. Obed Asamoah and Bede Ziedeng.
...
In a latest development, a Deputy General Secretary NDC, Kofi Adams, has warned that the merger between his party and the DFP could suffer a setback, if Obed Asamoah does not tread cautiously.
...
"I think Dr. Asamoah should be careful and know what he is talking about… they should watch their comments and should know that the NDC, as a party has not met to even accept the merger with DFP yet. If they continue making comments such as this, that would stir controversy in our party, I believe that many persons will advise themselves," he told Joy News
He maintained that though the merger was yet to be finalised by both parties, comments made by the leader of the DFP, concerning the internal affairs of the NDC, had the potency to dwindle the party's fortunes in 2012.

Dr Obed Yaw Asamoah, National Chairman of the Party told the GNA that the Party would keep to the political high ground and move forward with one voice.
"We're going to talk about positive issues.We're not going to do personality bashing at every turn," he said.
Dr Asamoah said the Party's major goal for the next few days would be to intensify the messages of social democracy ideology, as well as promote the profiles of Prof. Mills and the Vice Presidential nominee Alhaji Mohammad Mumuni to the electorate.
...
Dr Asamoah said the campaign was going well."We are feeling good about all the developments," he said, adding that the NDC had gained some strategic political grounds.
The NDC Chairman appealed to NDC supporters to come out on election day, "and speak out through the thumb" by voting massively for the Party's candidates.
"Let's move forward to recapture power as a solidified body and let's focus on our mission to work for the socio-economic development of the country," Dr Asamoah stressed.

It is quite obvious that with the nomination and endorsement of Mr. Martin Amidu , as the Vice to Prof. Atta Mills last week as against the favored choice of Obed Asamoah , the NDC party and all its strategies have suffered a sort of destabilization.
...
It is a known fact that Dr. Obed Asamoah is a strategist of no mean repute.He is the chairman of the Campaign Team of the NDC and also Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Party.With all these accolades he wields influence an knows all the corners of the party.
A founding member and the longest serving secretary and minister in the PNDC/NDC regime he is well connected in the party both locally and internationally . In fact the news hardly warmed itself into the ears of the people than calls came from certain constituencies in the Northern , Western , Volta , Central and Eastern regions.
All the people were thrown into a mournful mood . In other to assure another victory the NDC itself has realised that it needs the calibre of Obed and his supporters.As a result of this , the party , the Ghanaian Voice has gathered is mapping out meeting and consultations to assure Dr Obed's constituency that all is not yet lost.
Special attention will be in the Volta and Northern regions.There is even talk of assuring these key regions and supporters that they will be favored in the appointment to ministerial posts..This we hope will satisfy the disappointment of those who are aggrieved.
...
We know Obed is already on board but we need his supporters to also come along said a supporter from Bawku.
