Reports say all is not well within NDC , as a sharp division has originated amongst the leadership of the party, following intense lobbying for the vacant position.
Although some personalities have rejected the position, citing reasons of tension and unhappy endings that had in recent times been associated with the position, others are making agitated efforts, hiding behind pressure groups, to stage a comeback.
In recent times The deputy ministerial portfolio has, become a hot seat, following strings of controversies which culminated in the exit of previous occupants of the position, with the most recent being the former deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin.
A regional executive officer is reported to have turned down the request by the Flag Staff House and the First Lady to accept the nomination for the post, which became vacant following the sacking of the then Deputy Minister, Mr. Joseph Yamin, over altercations with his then boss, Mr. Samuel Sarpong.
The Chronicle is dependably informed that Mr. Yamin, who has since 2015 been rendered jobless upon his dismissal, is trying hard to stage a comeback. Some pressure groups have continuously been issuing statements calling for his re-instatement. The odds however, appear to be against the deputy minister whose reign was characterized with a series of machinations, confusions and alleged disruption of his former boss in NDC.
The tension ultimately led to the dismissal of the 2 appointees from the NDC after their supporters engaged in open counter-accusations accusations. Mr. Samuel Sarpong has since been appointed Managing Director of the State Housing Company, whilst Mr. Yamin is yet to catch the attention of the President.
