One of the two agents of the 2020 NDC flagbearer in the National Collation Centre otherwise known as the ‘Strongroom’ during the December 7, 2020 polls, Rojo Mettle-Nunoo who abandoned his assigned duty in the strongroom to drink the EC Chairperson’s, Jean Mensah’s tea has dumped the party once again for one of its suspended members, Koku Anyidoho.

This came to light following comments on social media over why Mr. Mettle-Nunoo refused to join former president Mahama and the NDC to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the death of the late president John Evans Atta Mills yesterday, July24 but rather their opponents in power.

It will be recalled that during the cross-examination by Justin Amenuvor, the lead counsel of the Electoral Commission (EC), the former Deputy Health Minister sought to clarify his meeting with Jean Mensa, the EC Chair in the 2020 elections petition.

A lot of Ghanaians blamed Mr. Nunoo for his decision to meet the EC chair in crucial moments, describing his actions as “dereliction of duty” and “lack of loyalty” to the party.

It however emerged yesterday that Mr. Mettle-Nunoo rather chose to join Mr. Koku Anyidoho to celebrate president while abandoning his party who also celebrated the event same day, indicating he had an evil plans against President Mahama.

Below is his explanation why he took that decision:

“My absolute loyalty to President John
Evans Atta Mills is timeless and can
never be blemished. My integrity to the
family is beyond reproach. Iwent to honour a true friend and his
memory!

Absolutely… nobody chooses my friends
for me. I know genuine friends and fair
weather friends. More so the person Prof
John Evans Atta Mills trusted me and
stood by me when others run for cover
when President JA Kuffour called me a
cocaine dealer. I defended myself at the
Georgina Wood trial and was acquitted
and discharged.

Prof Atta Mills recommended me for vetting to be appointed a Deputy Minister for Roads and Highways. He later appointed me a Deputy Minister for Health. In all those two ministerial positions I performed with integrity.

I chose my friends and associate not out
of fear or intimidation. My personal
judgement and discretion are my
personal opinion and commitment to
loyalty.

I worked with Prof Atta Mills and knew
him as a very close personal friend. I owe
him (Prof John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills
unqualified, equal and absolute respect,
honour and reverence.

Honouring his memory by attending his
memorial event is not a crime!!!
But for Koku Anyidoho’s interventions to
restore the Asomdwe Park what
environment and ambience would the
NDC celebrate the memory of the late
president by going to his grave site
overgrown with weeds after 10 years?

I am not a spokesperson for Koku
Anyidoho and I am not a member of the
NGO created. Attending a state function
does not make me a member of any…”
