Member of Pressure Group, Occupy Ghana, Sydney Caseley Hayford, has said he is happy about the current wranglings in the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) as the party is not cut out to lead the country. 

According to Mr Hayford, he would encourage the party to fight, continue to disagree, insult each other, fall apart and possibly disintegrate because it does not deserve to lead the country.  

His wish is that NDC is divided and unable to come back as a political force. Parties like the Progressive Peoples Party(PNC) and the Peoples National Convention(PNC) and others, he said could come together to form a stronger and better opposition.

"The NDC came to power through the gun and that spirit of fighting and trying to eliminate each other has never disappeared", he said on Accra-based Citi FM. 

The NDC has been hit with internal wranglings following verbal attacks on the founder of the party former President Jerry John Rawlings and a member of the party, Martin Amidu by former Policy Advisor to ex-President John Mahama, Valerie Sawyer. 

According to Mr Hayford, the party is known for attacking each other. The likes of Kwesi Botchway and Obed Asamoah were beaten and other members disappeared because of such wranglings in the party. 

"The more they continue to fight and in disarray, the better for the country", he stressed. 

He said, the establishment of NDC's Social Democracy School would not do the party any good. 

On the contrary, President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe suggested that the NDC should teach a course in "Democratic Centralization", as there are issues they need to deal with in that area. 

He added that the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia is the right person to tell the NDC, the cause of their defeat in the 2016 elections.
