Though wiping one’s butt with a printed material after visiting the lavatory can pose health issues to the individual, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has revealed that it feels good using the ‘New Statesman’ newspaper to wipe one’s butt after heeding to nature’s call.
“Excuse me for what I am about to say but in my sincere opinion, I believe it feels good and would benefit any individual to use that paper (New Statesman) to wipe his butt rather than read the lies that makes up its content”, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said.
Mr. Nketia’s beef with the New Statesman stems from a news article the paper published which sort to create the impression that the NDC’s General Secretary is angry with President Mahama over his “unsatisfactory” first batch appointments.
According to the New Statesman, “there is uneasy calm among the rank and file of the ruling National Democratic Congress over what they describe as ‘outsiders infiltrating and getting juicy positions’ with government”.
The publication further claimed that the General Secretary of the party, Mr. Asiedu Nketia stormed the seat of government to ostensibly question President Mahama about the rationale surrounding his initial appointments.
But in a sharp riposte on Okay FM, Mr. Nketia bluntly discredited the newspaper’s claim, by explaining that as General Secretary of the party, he works with the president in ensuring that the right people are selected to head such positions.
He indicated that the publication clearly exposes the NPP for their hatred for him and how they wish “unity never existed in the NDC”.
