Mr. Johnson Aseidu Nketia, the General secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has hinted that, he advised the just past Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye, not to contest for the speaker race for the eighth parliament because he is too old but he did not listen.

“I told him he is too old to be the speaker of parliament. I advised him it was time for him to get time for his grandchildren and tell them Ananse story but he refused and went ahead to contest, now he lost, nothing more, nothing less.” He made this statement at a press conference in Accra last Friday after Mr. Oquaye lost the speaker race to Alban Bagbin.
