Former Minister of Communications, Dr Edward Omane Boamah has officially applied through his lawyers to the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) demanding a copy of the Kwesi Botchwey report.
His demand follows a publication attributing the party’s defeat to him and other persons who were reportedly close to former President John Dramani Mahama, then torch bearer of the NDC.
He expressed doubts if the contents of the said report were indeed the true excerpts of the 455-page report compiled by the 13-member committee tasked to unravel the cause of party’s disgraceful defeat at the 2016 polls.
According to him, he is demand for a copy of the report is in the supreme interest of the party’s collective good which is working very hard to heal, unite, reorganize, and to recapture power in 2020.

I have become aware of an unfortunate and grossly unimaginable online publication on Ghanaweb.com attributing NDC’s defeat in the 2016 elections to me based on the respected ‘Professor Kwesi Botchwey’s Committee Report.’
I doubt that, the Committee will do such an incompetent job – information gathering and evaluation, analysis based on glaring evidence of the causal associations and causes of the outcome of the 2016 elections etc – hence I have instructed my Lawyer to write to the General Secretary of, our great party, the NDC to demand a copy of the report to enable me respond appropriately to any such spurious conclusion(s).
I have come to this painful decision in the supreme interest of our collective good as a party which is working very hard to heal, unite, reorganize, and to recapture power in 2020.
Long Live NDC!
Long Live Ghana!!
